SYP Churchfield Court,


Completed: April, 2014

Service: Building Surveying

Sectors: Workplace, Public Services

Client: South Yorkshire Police Authority

SYP commissioned Monaghans to defend them from a dilapidations claim arising from their lease expiry.  Our role was to inspect and issue a strategy report ahead of the exit.  We produced a Scott Schedule and successfully defended SYP agreeing a monetary settlement for the Repairs, Decoration, Reinstatement and Statutory compliance liabilities from the expired lease.

This negotiation was one of a number which Monaghans have carried out for SYP on their South Yorkshire portfolio.


  • Strategy Report issued helping SYP to prepare and plan for the vacation
  • Thorough research of lease and historic documentation identified shortcomings with the landlord surveyor approach which were maximised in the successful settlement
  • The settlement reached was significantly lower than the landlords claim
