This type of report is mostly required when a development is to take place and often the local council or owners of adjoining properties request a Dilapidation Report be carried out.
The purpose of these reports is to provide the condition of the adjoining building or buildings to the development in their present state and is to identify any building defects which may involve cracking, settlement and the general condition of the adjoining properties.
Our reports will include an extensive number of photos to be taken at the time which will identify any defects large or small and provide a record of the condition of the property at the time of that inspection before any works are commenced to the development site.
The reports are intended to protect the owners of the adjoining properties if the proposed development has caused damage to those properties. After the development has been completed a further inspection and photos can be taken which would determine any damage to the neighbouring properties.
