Lease reinstatement

Investigating your obligations as a landlord or tenant makes good at lease end.

Over time, we’ve achieved many successful outcomes for landlords and tenants during lease reinstatement negotiations. A key factor is an early engagement, which allows us to work with you in the leading up to the lease end to develop a strategy for your make good settlement.
We follow RICS lease reinstatement guidelines and work closely with legal advisors when contentious claims arise.

In many cases, our experience of lease make good clauses and transparent reporting on condition and value of make good, leads to quick lease settlement outcomes.

Preparing or defending claims

We’ve prepared lease reinstatement claims on behalf of landlords across the country on a variety of property sector types. We’ve also defended many claims for our tenant clients.

In each case, we refer to the lease clauses relating to make good and follow our lease reinstatement process to facilitate early consultation along the settlement negotiation journey.

Our lease reinstatement experience

We prepare reports on anticipated reinstatement liability, as well as schedules of condition for new leases. We also check, approve and monitor tenant alteration works. In doing so, we can protect you at the pre-lease stage and save you potential lease-end liability.

Where lease break clauses arise, we provide strategic advice on lease reinstatement repair obligations. We prepare repair scopes when tenants want to make good their lease reinstatement obligations and project manage the required repairs prior to end of lease.

For landlords, if tenants make good the agreed items, we complete re-inspections of the property to make sure all items agreed have been addressed.

We work closely with our quantity surveying team to value lease make good liabilities. Our knowledge of expert witness work is called upon when disputes arise.
