Recent cases in the Scottish courts have cast light on key issues which can face landlords and tenants when pursuing and negotiating dilapidations claims.
At our forthcoming breakfast presentation, members of our Property Dispute Resolution team will discuss those key issues and consider the extent to which the recent case law has changed the position for those involved in dilapidations disputes.
The seminar will also look at how lease provisions are to be interpreted in light of recent court judgments on interpretation of contracts, focusing in particular on the scope of the repairing obligations, and the remedies and defences available to the parties. An update on the position in England will also be provided, bearing in mind the key differences in the law north and south of the border.
