Childs Property Inspections has extensive experience in providing dilapidation reports throughout NSW, QUEENSLAND, VICTORIA, ACT and SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We provide reports for architects and homeowners on single home projects as well as having the capacity to inspect a large number of properties along road widening projects and large developments.
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 assessment be carried out on neighbouring structures. A dilapidation report may also be referred to as a pre-construction condition survey report or a post-construction condition report.
Our experienced inspectors 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 and footpaths etc.
This type of 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. Therefore, the cost of a dilapidation report is well worth it to ensure peace of mind.
The condition of the property should be agreed to and the report should be signed by both parties prior to building work commencing.
