From £315 + VATBook now
This one day dilapidations course is presented from a building surveyor's perspective and covers the basis of preparing a dilapidations claim, defending a dilapidations claim and negotiating a dilapidations settlement. Particular emphasis will be given to tenants' obligations to reinstate alterations and to the various options for achieving a settlement of the claim.
The session will explore key points of attention to surveyors when taking clients instructions and which kind of evidence should be gathered during the inspection phase.
Essential knowledge on matters involving liabilities will also be explained including classification of items, reinstatement of alterations, repairs and other obligations. Delegates will be provided with best practice related to the preparation of the Schedule of Dilapidations and the Quantified Demand, as well as references on value, interim dilapidations, break clauses and settlements.
A case study will allow participants to discuss and implement some of the concepts explored during the day referring to the preparation of a Schedule of Dilapidations.
This course should be of interest to building surveyors, landlords, tenants and valuation surveyors interested in the building surveyors' approach. It is expected that attendees already have a basic working knowledge of the dilapidations process.
