LBS offers professional advice in respect of disrepair claims during or at the end of the lease term, including the negotiation of the settlement in accordance with current RICS guidance protocols and current legislation. We can assist by ensuring the claim is fair and realistic having regard to the type of property and the terms of the lease.
Irrespective of any dilapidation matters, an expiry of a lease raises many issues for Landlords and Tenants with notices often being required to be served by both parties, within specific timescales, in accordance with the provisions of Landlord and Tenant legislation. We can assist by reviewing leases which are approaching expiry, providing advice on strategy and options and liaising with the client’s solicitors as appropriate.
Landlords and Tenants should ideally seek early advice as thorough preparation is the key to a successful result.
