Landlord settlement data
Landlords and tenants prefer to reach an early cash settlement before or shortly after lease end and we are able to support a landlord’s claim on three levels:
- That the works and related costs are not overstated;
- The interpretation of the lease obligations is correct; and
- The works listed will not be rendered ‘valueless’ by the landlord's intentions
Using our decades of experience playing this 'game', we achieved the following outcomes on the most recent 162 landlord instructions:
