Dilapidation Report Perth

Why you need a dilapidation Report

A dilapidation report (sometimes known as a property condition report) is an inspection with a report (including detailed photographs) on the condition of a property at a specific point in time. It records any existing damage and the current condition of the property that are likely to be affected by construction work, excavation or demolition at surrounding properties.

If your neighbour or council are performing construction works near your property you should document the condition of your property before work start. If the excavation or vibration from the work then damages your property you will be able to claim if you have a dilapidation report that proves that these defects were not present before the construction work commenced.

This even works the other way around! A dilapidation report can protect you if you are planning on doing any major construction work on your property, and you get dilapidation reports done on the properties around you, you can avoid nasty and expensive disputes from your neighbours claiming for damages they think you have caused by the construction works you have done to your property.

We can inspect:

  • Driveways
  • Street guttering
  • Footpaths
  • Nature strips
  • Yards
  • Fences
  • Neighbouring houses
