What is a Dilapidation Report?

A Dilapidation Report details the existing condition of a structure, road, footpaths etc prior to building work being carried out on a neighbouring property. Most councils as part of a development application will require a dilapidation report be carried out on neighbouring structures.

A dilapidation report is useful in defence if any claims are made by the owner of a neighbouring property against you for damage they believe your building works have caused.

A dilapidation report will itemise each defect found and also include a photo of each defect. The inspector will report on all internal and external areas of the structure and where required, the council assets including roads, footpaths, gardens and grounds.

The condition of the property should be agreed to and the report should be signed by both parties prior to building work commencing.
