Malcolm was contracted by KFG, owners of Maison Blanc concerning their Farnham outlet. At the commencement of the Lease certain work needed to be rectified in order to ensure a rent-free period at the beginning of the Lease.
Malcolm was approached by Harris Keane who, representing their Client ALDI UK, needed an assessment of potential future dilapidations liabilities on their two distribution warehouses located on an industrial estate north of Manchester. In addition we were to provide an assessment of likely planned maintenance costs for the buildings going forward if ALDI decided to extend their leases in the premises.
- Assessment of Dilapidations Claim
- Assessment of the Planned Maintenance Charges
- Fast Turnaround
What We Did
We attended site and over two days completed the survey of the main buildings comprising over 290,000 sqft as well as the yards & external areas, which are well over 2 hectares. Following completion of the assessment we produced a costed outline report; however, in view of the nature of dilapidations there were a number of items uncovered which were likely to be subject to negotiation. These items were highlighted and presented as a shopping list so the Board had full transparency of likely costs and liabilities.
