Whichever side you are sitting on dilapidations negotiations are hard. Most Tenants feel overwhelmed by a Schedule of Dilapidations and have plenty of questions…
What if the premises are in a poor state at the outset?
When is the landlord likely to submit a dilapidations claim?
What is the position on alterations I have made?

Schedule of Dilapidations | Flooring Works
A good example of some recent dilapidation works was for a construction company based in Brentwood Essex. They specialise in quality building contracting services including refurbishment and dilapidation works. PSC Flooring were called in by Bilton & Johnson (Building) Co Ltd, to look at refurbishing floor surfaces. This was part of a dilapidation project they were undertaking at a 525 square metre building in Crawley.
The floor had existing floor tiles and the landlord chose to carry out the refurbishment works on top of the tiled surface.
Preparation for the existing tile floor surface started by thoroughly cleaning and preparing the floor using the totally enclosed shot blasting preparation system. All residues, dust and localised repairs were then made before one coat of Resdev Pumaprime DPM epoxy resin priming system was laid.
Stability Is Key
The stability of the floor was renewed by laying a nominal 8mm cementitious heavy-duty pump screed, before the final finish of three coats of Resdev Pumatect high build epoxy resin, in the clients chosen mid grey.
The senior quantity surveyor on the job James Mcaulay commented “Outstanding result, we could not be happier”. The job was completed in just 7 days, completely transforming the dilapidated floor ready to be used again.
