I’ve been involved in resolving many interesting dilapidations claims, and helped clients develop strategies for managing the dilapidations obligations associated with their portfolios and in exits from large properties.

Aspects of building surveying you enjoy most
I particularly enjoy the individual challenges of dispute resolution work and the teamwork and satisfaction of refurbishment projects. On a wider basis, the profession offers real variety, is quite social and down to earth, and there is always something new coming along.
Remember the big picture, work from first principles, think what you’d do if it was your own property and money at stake, keep your sense of humour, do a good job.
