Dilapidations & Lease Advisory

Watts Group Limited provide specialist dilapidations & lease advisory services to landlord and tenant clients from our national network of offices. We provide this advice across the full range of asset types including commercial, industrial and retail property.

Our aim is to provide expert help where claims arise on dilapidated property or advice is needed on the operation of leases. We recognise that claims are becoming increasingly complex from both a surveying and legal perspective, with informed, accurate, pragmatic and timely advice being fundamental to achieving a favourable outcome.
