RICS Dilapidations Roadshow returns to provide you with a comprehensive update on the key issues impacting commercial landlords and tenants, building surveyors and valuers. Our expert panel of speakers will address crucial areas of dilapidations law and practical guidance allowing you to better advise your clients.

In a rapidly changing world of case law and policy it’s important you keep abreast of the latest changes. Our legal specialists will provide a roundup of such cases and analyse the impact they will have on your day-to-day practice.

The programme will also provide an update on technical issues such as building services and leases.

Attend this event to hear from leading industry speakers, discover the latest market developments and update your practical and technical knowledge.

Session highlights

  • Case law update: Get up-to-date with the latest case law in dilapidations. Discover how current court decisions may impact landlord and tenant liability and lease negotiations.
  • Building services: This session will cover how to deal with M&E defects in a claim, including statutory certification provisions, fixed wire testing certification and validatory testing. Identify the signs you need to be looking for in claims and when you need to refer to an expert.
  • Fixtures and fittings: Understated the difference between a landlord’s fixture and a tenant’s fixture and how this applies to remedying defects?
  • Current issues and pitfalls: Enhance your knowledge on dealing with short term leases, ambiguous wording and MEES.
  • Dispute resolution: An integral part of the dilapidations process is dispute resolution, as this can save a client both time and money. However, there are many different forms of resolution that can be used. Review the different forms of ADR methods to assess what form is most appropriate for your dispute.
  • Supersession: Benefit from a case study outlining the key principles in varying circumstances, including when a property is not let for the immediate period after termination or where a continued use cannot be ascertained.
