3SIXTY Dilapidations Consultancy assist in successful Litigation Case acting in capacity of Expert Witness

As a rule, it is unusual for Dilapidations claims to reach the court room, however, in this case and with the tenant arguing there were NIL Dilapidations and with them not prepared to engage in any form of Pre-trail dialogue as required under the ‘PLA Protocol’, the case was referred to Litigation.

Having prepared the Schedule of Dilapidations on behalf of the Landlord, 3SIXTY were called upon to act on behalf of the Landlord in the capacity of Expert Witness and to assist the judge in the matter of awarding damages. 

We are unable to disclose more information at this stage other than to say our client, the Landlord, was successful in his claim for damages and was awarded in excess of 85% of the value of the claim.  

With too many surveyors ‘dabbling’ in Dilapidations claims, this result goes on to underpin why it is critical to appoint a well-recognised and proven successful Dilapidations Consultancy who have an enviable and proven track record in this often contentious arena.

A full article with the full technical details will follow in due course so do keep an eye out for what is sure to be an interesting read.
