Urgent Dilapidations Survey Requested in Beckenham, Kent
DMP were contacted by a new Client last week requiring an urgent dilapidations survey to be undertaken at a retail property in Beckenham, Kent that had been vacant for a number of years.
The retail unit, prominently located on Beckenham High Street, had been vacant for some time and was in poor condition throughout. Water ingress and associated damp together failed wall coverings were found throughout the premises and would require significant rectification.
Damages associated to the tenant’s lease obligations were commensurate with the information provided of a unit that had been left vacant for a period of years. Ironically it was found that the lead tenant who had been sub-letting the property was also a company working with the property industry.
The Client required the survey to be undertaken swiftly and DMP were able to send a surveyor within a week of initial contact. A site note was issued to the Client following our inspection to advise on the initial findings with the full costed dilapidations report being issued to the Client within a week of the initial instructed site visit.
