Terminal Schedule of Dilapidations, Ivy House Offices, Eastbourne
Following receipt of a Terminal Schedule of Dilapidations, Eastbourne Homes Housing Association appointed Murray Birrell to conduct a Terminal Schedule of Dilapidations and negotiate a settlement with their landlord’s surveyor. Eastbourne Homes Limited (EHL) provides housing management and property services to Eastbourne Borough Council (EBC) tenants and leaseholders.
Murray Birrell carried out a full inspection of the demised Ivy House premises and responded to the claim in detail.
Ivy House is a 1970s purpose built five storey brick constructed office building that has certainly benefitted from an extensive refurbishment, with in excess of £1 million invested in the premises both internally and externally.
The accommodation is considered Grade A quality with open plan purpose built floor plates. The offices are served by way of a communal spacious lobby leading to an eight person passenger lift, disabled WC, stairs to upper floors, and rear access door to a partially covered secure car park at the rear.
Located on Ivy Terrace, between Grove Road and Gildredge Road, Ivy House is in a prime town centre location and provides arguably the highest quality offices in the town. It is conveniently within yards of The Beacon Shopping Centre, multi-storey car parks, and the town’s mainline railway station.
Following protracted negotiations, Murray Birrell achieved a successful settlement at a figure significantly lower than the amount claimed originally by the landlord.
