Sherrards help client Global Infusion Limited with dilapidations claim

At the end of the Lease the Landlord served a substantial dilapidations claim. Mike and the team used arguments involving a section 18 valuation to significantly reduce the Tenant’s liability. 

The team worked closely with Brasier Freeth one of the leading surveyors in Hertfordshire to help resolve this matter for our client.
