A dilapidation report provides you with a comprehensive statement of the condition of a selected property that is likely to be affected by construction work, excavation or demolition. Our dilapidation reports will include things like measurements, diagrams, and photographs of any existing defects, which give an accurate picture of the state of the buildings being inspected. In addition, all our dilapidation reports comply with the Australian Standard (AS 4349. 1).

Why do you need a Dilapidation Report?

Dilapidations reports provide landowners and contractors protection over fraudulent claims of defects and compensation when developing properties. Also, most councils require the reports covering footpaths, road conditions, and curbs in order to approve developments. It is particularly important to organise a dilapidation report if you share common walls or structures with a neighbour.

5 reasons why you need a Dilapidation Report

  • Building authorities may mandate them.
  • You will be protected from potential litigation from neighbours if they claim their property has been damaged as a result of your construction work.
  • You will have peace of mind that safety is being prioritised.
  • The report ensures that builders and contractors meet accepted standards.
  • Finally, you will save money by identifying issues before they become a potential disaster.

When to organise a Dilapidation Report

A dilapidation report is recommended if you are about to develop land, engage a builder to perform construction works on your property or you are the owner of the adjoining property that is being developed.

Dilapidation reports and inspections can be arranged during construction works or following completion.
