Dilapidations Services

Richard Jackson provide a specialist dilapidations consultancy service for landlord and tenant clients from our offices in Colchester, London, Norwich, Cambridge & Bristol.

We aim to provide expert help where claims arise on dilapidated property and recognise that claims are becoming increasingly complex from both a surveying and legal perspective, with informed, accurate and timely advice being fundamental to achieving a positive outcome.

Our surveyors offer expert advice on all aspects of dilapidations and regularly negotiate favourable settlements for both landlord and tenant clients. Our services include:

  • Lease advice
  • Schedule of Condition
  • Notice to Repair
  • Interim Schedules of Dilapidation
  • Terminal Schedules of Dilapidation
  • Dilapidations liability reports
  • Strategic advice (including exit strategies)

Richard Jackson Limited follow the requirements set out in the Pre-Action Protocol for Claims for Damages in Relation to the Physical State of Commercial Property at Termination of a Tenancy (the ‘Dilapidations Protocol’) in conducting our negotiations and have also adopted the RICS Dilapidation Guidance Note as best practice.

We provide help with Dilapidation claims and Building Surveying services across the country with a particular emphasis on Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire & wider East Anglia.
