Dilapidation

Disrepair is sometimes called dilapidations. The term usually applies when a landlord at the end of a lease informs the tenant that the premises are in a state of disrepair which are a breach of the covenants in the lease. The landlord will draw up a Schedule of Dilapidations which will set out the items needing repair and how much that will cost to remedy. Where there is disagreement the court can decide the extent and cost of any dilapidations claimed for.
