Topical Issues on Dilapidations

The issues discussed include:

  • Common law damages, s.18 Landlord and Tenant Act and Ruxley Electronics. Has Ruxley made any difference to the manner in which damages for dilapidations should be assessed, and does it matter in practice?
  • 'Supercession': does it mean anything, and if so what?
  • Recovering the costs of repairs via services charges: how, in practice, should matters such as the length of term be factored in?
  • Assessing damages for disrepair by reference to the monetary sums which a reasonable landlord and a reasonable tenant would have negotiated to discharge the tenant's obligations: a permissible approach?
  • Interest and costs: any special factors in dilapidations claims
