Dilapidations: Law and Practice Short course

On this Dilapidations short course, you'll get a refresher on the law around dilapidations, and current best practice too. Professional advice, whichever side of the table is involved, needs to be informed by a clear understanding of the law and knowledge of what is current best practice.

You'll also unpack examples and case studies, explore the implications of recent cases, and get practical advice on the tactics and management of claims in an interactive session, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
