A Dilapidation Report details the existing condition of a structure, road, footpaths etc prior to building work being carried out on a neighbouring property.
Attention: Builders / Developers / Architects: Most councils require a dilapidation report to be carried out on neighbouring structures and roads as part of a development application.
A dilapidation report will itemise each defect found and also include a photo(s) of the defect. The inspector will report on all internal and external areas of the structure and where required common areas and the council assets including roads and footpaths.
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.
The condition of the property should be agreed to and the report should be signed by both parties prior to building work commencing.
Clarity Property Inspections has extensive experience in providing dilapidation reports. 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.
Below are some of the projects and contractors we have worked with.
The cost of a Dilapidation Report will depend on the number and type of properties to be inspected. Please call to discuss your requirements and obtain a quote.
