Denis Garrity and Lorna Richardson have produced a highly useful, concise, and readable textbook on dilapidations and service charge. It is written in plain English, is well set out, and has a most helpful index, and deals thoroughly with the subject matter. It is a textbook which has been much needed for too long. The book gives a very helpful and comprehensive overview of the commercial property market and the common law, or set of default rules that apply in the absence of specific provision within the lease document itself ... This highly digestible textbook should be on the desk of every solicitor and surveyor practitioner involved in commercial leases, and it should be well-thumbed – it is a very helpful guide which allows the practitioner to access the relevant law and obtain practical advice quickly and easily.
