The Dilapidations Protocol

December 11, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free – £30.00

Shortly after Lord Woolf’s report on the Civil Justice System became the basis of the Civil Procedure Rules in 1999, the Property Litigation Association began to draft a pre-action protocol for dilapidations disputes.  That original document has had several forms and was included in the 5th edition of the RICS Dilapidations Guidance Note in 2008 as a guide to good practice.  Subsequently its status has been elevated to be included in the Civil Procedure Rules so it has statutory authority.

In this discussion we will be considering whether the Dilapidations Protocol has achieved what it was intended for and is therefore fit for purpose, or whether it has missed the mark and requires reviewing.  Keith Conway, Clyde and Co, will be putting the argument that the Protocol is fit for purpose and Edward Shaw will be questioning whether that is actually the case.

Fair play will be assured by Zia Bhaloo KC of Landmark Chambers who will be chairing the discussion

Zia is recommended for her cross examination and has been recommended in both Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 for many years for commercial chancery, property litigation, and social housing. The research by those directories over many years emphasises the fact that she is a “commercially astute tactician”. Her focus and interest is on using the law, and strategy, to achieve results which achieve the client’s objectives, and which work on the ground. Zia is the co-editor of Butterworths Property Insolvency and the Rural Law Notebook

The speakers are:
