Seb David



I’m a Partner in our West End office. I have more than 24 years’ experience, mainly involving lease-exit matters on commercial property throughout the UK, with a focus on conditional lease breaks and dilapidations matters.

With a background in both investment asset management as well as building surveying matters, I’m part of our specialist Lease-Exit team here at Gerald Eve. This is a highly experienced, uniquely configured and cross-discipline service, comprising both building surveyors as well as valuers sitting alongside each other and liaising closely to provide a joined-up approach to both occupiers and landlords in lease-end matters.

My clients include City University of London, Deloitte, C & C Group plc, Schroders, Mapeley Estates, London Underwriting Centre, Whistl and Prudential.



  • City, University of London – I provided dilapidations assessment advice for account provisioning purposes across multiple building forming its London-occupational portfolio.
  • Deloitte LLP – I represented the practice as an occupier on receipt of around 30 dilapidations claims received on its national occupational portfolio and negotiating each to a settlement.
  • Adena Property Investments Inc. – I provided dilapidations advice on Adena’s London investment portfolio, inspecting, drafting schedules and negotiating with occupiers to settlements.
