Dilapidations & reinstatement

Dilapidations and reinstatement usually occurs at the conclusion of a lease period. In essence, the building is put back into the same condition as it was before the tenant moved in.

Anything that the tenant installed or wore out, for example – partitions, flooring, decoration and lighting are removed and replaced or restored.

Prime Solutions will work with you, tenants, landlords or their representatives to ensure commercial buildings are returned in acceptable condition to meet Dilapidations and Reinstatement Schedule.

Things to consider

  • Before you take a lease a good survey will establish the condition of the building and give an indication of work that may be needed now and later.
  • It is a good idea to record the condition and layout of the building before you take occupancy.
  • Planned and regular maintenance can help prevent greater expense later.
  • At lease end the occupier will be required to determine what repairs need completing and how these can be completed in the lead up to vacating the property.
  • At lease end any alterations to the building may need to be removed and the building’s original condition reinstated.
  • At lease end clarify what needs to be redecorated and cleaned.
