What is Office Reinstatement and How can We help you

Office reinstatement refers to the process of returning an office or commercial space back to its original condition when the tenant first moved in. This process is initiated by the expiry of a lease or when moving to a new space. Unlike renting a residential property, renting an office space or commercial property requires the tenant to reinstate the property to its original condition, as per the reinstatement clause stated in the tenancy agreement.

Why is office reinstatement necessary?

The reinstatement clause in the tenancy agreement stipulates that the tenant needs to reinstate the office to its original condition at the end of the lease term. Therefore, when moving to a new office or when a lease is coming to an end, the tenant is responsible for reinstating the space to its original condition or risk breaching the contract.

The process of office reinstatement can be quite complex, so it’s important to find experienced office reinstatement contractors. It is the tenant’s responsibility to remove all temporary fixtures and fittings that were installed during occupancy, and restore all original features. Failure to meet the reinstatement requirements set out by the landlord and building management can result in losing the deposit or being subject to penalties and fines.

Unlike an office renovation project, office reinstatement usually needs to be completed within a short period of time. The office reinstatement work includesdemolishing walls and concrete features, relocating and reinstalling doors, power points, and original lighting. It also involves terminating and removing wiring, electrical cables, trunking, data points, and replacing and reinstating damaged ceiling boards, removing floor finishes such as tiles, vinyl, carpets, and removing temporary false ceilings as well as drywall partitions.

Once the office reinstatement is complete, the building management and the landlord need to approve the reinstated condition. Once the reinstated office is approved by the landlord, the tenant’s deposit should be returned, and their reputation as a responsible tenant will be intact.
