When embarking on a dilapidations claim, it is essential to abide by the relevant Pre-Action Protocol provided by the Civil Procedure Rules. The intention behind the Protocol is to seek to achieve a sensible compromise in order to avoid the expense and uncertainty of litigated disputes. Failure to comply with the Protocol can have disastrous consequences for you, particularly in relation to costs.
