When nearing the end of a lease on a property, the landlord will require that the property should be returned back to its original condition when the lease was first agreed, including any dilapidations work that may be required.
This may include removing partitions or offices which have been installed, replacing carpets, fixtures and fittings if worn, complete redecoration where required, and possible strip out of network, power and IT infrastructure. This is to ensure that the building is left as it was found, ready for the landlord to show to prospective new tenants.
This work can either be done by the landlord himself, or the tenants who are leaving can elect to negotiate the final Schedule of Dilapidations and have the work done themselves.
We at South Downs Interiors are able to assist with this type of work, either for the Landlord or the departing tenant. We are able to liaise with you from the moment you decide to move to new premises, offering cost-effective solutions, until the Landlord has signed off the Schedule of Dilapidations and your lease has ended.
From the first meeting we had with SDI we knew they were the company for us. From start to finish of this project the team at SDI provided an outstanding service. David and Diane spent time every week in the lead up to project kick off, to ensure we were all working from the same page and the end result would meet both our expectations. At every point of the project we knew what was being done and when, and more importantly what we were spending! I complete many projects a year like this across Europe but I have never worked with such a great bunch of people, not only were the team at SDI great but the 3rd party contractors that SDI work with were also very good. I would happily recommend SDI to everybody, no matter how large or small your business/requirements may be, they are the company for you. Many thanks to David and Diane for all your hard work and commitment, it has been a real pleasure working with you.Aaron Cooper – European IT Engineering Manager, Integra Neurosciences, Andover
