Dilapidations North West, Dilapidations Preston, Costly assumption as to low maintenance liability

So in the euphoria of taking brand new premises a standard FRI lease is signed. The building is pristine and seemingly has little maintenance and decorative liabilities. Wrong! Do not forget with the passage of time and weathering and possibly aggressive inland coastal environment, protected metal coatings and factory applied finishes to cladding and steelwork will deteriorate. The decorations covenant will also likely require periodic redecoration and redecoration in the last 3,6,12 months of the lease.

Always seek advice from an experienced Chartered Building Surveyor FRICS or Chartered Building Engineer FCABE who can advise as to not only present condition, but also future liabilities as building and component materials weather and degrade.

WOW Words of Wisdom
DO NOT sign a standard FRI lease without understanding the implications for costly repair and decorations liabilities and costs as the lease term diminishes and the building asset deteriorates. Expert advice is priceless and will save you ££££

Not a cheap building to repaint, so a 10 year minimum life high performance paint system is essential to save the horrendous repeat costs of access and protection!
