M58 Business Park

Dilapidations advice and successful negotiation of a multi-million pound settlement at this business park just off the M58 in Skelmersdale

Every Landlord would love to circumvent s18(1) of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1927 and receive an unfettered contribution back from their Tenant to address backlog maintenance. Sounds reasonable doesn’t it? However in practice it is far from easy to pull off.

Emerson Management Services were very aware of this. They consulted our dilapidations team who in conjunction with solicitors and other specialists managed the negotiation of a multi-million-pound claim and settlement based on the cost of remedial works.

Repairs Notices (Jervis vs Harris) were issued on defined packages of work ahead of expiry dates. This allowed for negotiations to commence from a position of strength.

As any real estate litigator will tell you, the success of any action will turn on the quality of the evidence. That’s where our expert dilapidations surveyors can make a difference.

Circa 500,000sqft of distribution shed and offices are all now back in repair and earning their keep once more.
