Emma Humphreys provides an overview of recent dilapidations rulings
With most of 2015 passing without any dilapidations cases, three - quite unusual - cases have emerged in recent months. The Creative Foundation v Dreamland Leisure Ltd & Ors  EWHC 2556 (Ch) concerned part of a wall removed by the tenant which contained a mural painting by Banksy. The art had been applied without the consent of landlord or tenant and was estimated to be worth £300,000. The Creative Foundation had stepped into the shoes of the landlord and was seeking delivery up of the wall by way of an application for summary judgment.
