The following Property Q&A Produced in partnership with Kate Andrews of Hamlins provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Q&A relates to whether the landlord can serve a schedule of dilapidations in respect of partitioning. It looks at whether the existence of partitioning will prejudice the ability of the tenant to determine the lease by the operation of the break. The latter is not considered in this response.
Further, this Q&A assumes that the partitions were installed (with the authorisation of the landlord) by the tenant during the term of the former lease (the Original Lease) and that while negotiating the terms of the new contracted out lease (the Current Lease) the partitions were not discussed. In determining the tenant’s obligations regarding the removal of the partitions, this answer is limited without reviewing the leases and any relevant licenses given in relation to the works.
The starting position is to look at the repairing, reinstatement and yielding up provisions in both the Current Lease and the Original Lease to identify what obligations there are on the tenant. Without knowing the extent of those clauses this answer is limited.
