Y‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ou work for a surveyor’s practice and have been asked to provide professional advice by Scala Logistics. The tenant, Scala Logistics, have written to you requesting a report setting out what their obligations are likely to be once the lease terminates on 31 August 2022. They want to know what liabilities they may have, how they can avoid such liabilities and ensure that any potential dilapidation claim made against them by the landlord is kept to a minimum. Although the company Scala Logistics have various industrial units around the country which are leased they have employed new property manager who is unsure as to the processes involved when it comes to a dilapidations claim. Your practice has never worked with Scala Logistics and therefore there is potential for future work with this company. Your professional report should: • describe to Scala Logistics what‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ dilapidations are and what they represent. • critically analyse the relevant clauses in the Lease that would have an effect on any dilapidations claim and advise Scala Logistics accordingly. • evaluate what is required to ensure compliance with those lease clauses and inform Scala Logistics accordingly. • formulate a proposal to Scala Logistics to ensure that they are able to protect their position against any potential claim that could be made against them. • advise Scala Logistics on the procedures that are likely to be carried out by Struans and Company as the end of the lease approaches when it comes to a dilapidation claim. • cover any areas of uncertainty and ambiguity. Your advice needs to follow the rules of professional conduct when it comes to the dilapidations process and your report should be written in a professional style expected of a char‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍tered surveyor.
