Environmental considerations are something we are all increasingly aware of and the real estate industry is seen as a key contributor to CO2 emissions. The industry is responsible for consumption of around 40% of the world's energy, renewable or otherwise, and 30% of global annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are due to construction. Green Leases are seen as one way of combatting the effect property development has on climate change. 
What is a dilapidation? 
This is the process a landlord needs to follow to recover any loss that has occurred as a result of the tenant failing, at the end of the lease, to return the property having reinstated any items of disrepair or damage according to the repairing standard. It is basically an exit cost for the tenant and relates to restoring the property back to its original state. Dilapidations relate to commercial properties.

In fact, in its current form, the Renters Reform Bill seeks to fundamentally redress the power balance between landlords and tenants.
