Dilapidations: Reinstatement of Tenant’s Alterations

Web class Online, 19 Feb 2018

The aim of this web class is to identify the various factors that can affect a tenant’s rights and obligations to reinstate alterations made in leased premises.

The differences between chattels, tenant’s fixtures, landlord’s fixtures and integral items will be considered; the common law rights and obligations reviewed and typical contractual obligations identified.  Obligations relating to “alterations”, “improvements” and “additions” will be covered.  The implications of new tenancies will be discussed. The effect of the Limitations Act will be covered as well as an acknowledgement of the over-riding common law principles of the measurement of loss. The web class will be based on the law in England and Wales.
