Property litigators to advise RICS members on dilapidations

Thrings’ relationship with the world's leading body for land, property, construction and infrastructure professionals will take a further step forward this month when Warren Reid and Matthew Smith address members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) on the subject of dilapidations.

Warren, who is head of commercial property and a partner in Thrings’ property litigation team, will lead RICS members through some of the risks and opportunities, highlight common claim and dispute issues, and draw on a number of recent dilapidations cases at the RICS South West seminar in Bristol on 21 November.

He will also discuss the quantified demand – the process which sets out any losses claimed by a landlord in the event that dilapidation works are not completed by the tenant before the end of the lease term.

Meanwhile, Matthew, an associate in Thrings’ property litigation team, will provide RICS members with an update on recent dilapidations case law.

Warren and Matthew feature in a strong line up of industry-leading speakers which includes Chris Selway from BNP Paribas Real Estate, Hugh Taylor from power plant consultancy Roadnight Taylor, Aahsan Rahman from NHS Property Services, and Emily Grant from environmental consultants Environet.

Other topics set to feature on a packed agenda include growth trends and opportunities in the Bristol office market, the security, environmental and insurance aspects of managing an empty building, and the legal considerations involved in issuing a Section 20 notice.

During the course of the one-day seminar, RICS members and other guests will also have the opportunity to network, make new contacts and discuss key issues with their peers from across the land, property and the built environment sectors.

This year’s event marks a continuation of the burgeoning relationship between RICS and Thrings, with Warren returning to address members of the professional body for the third successive year.

Warren and Matthew also form a key part of Thrings’ now annual dilapidations seminar, which this year took place at the firm’s offices in the Paragon in Bristol on 2 October.
