Dilapidation reports are a comprehensive inspection and documented report of the current condition of the neighbouring properties of a dwelling.
It’s a way for home owners to take proper precautions and obtain a record of a dwellings current condition.
This is usually requested before and after a major construction or demolition project. Also known as a condition report, a dilapidation inspection is a requirement for getting a Development Approval (DA) for a project that may cause possible damages to an adjacent property or adjoining properties.
The condition report is carried out not just to ensure the protection of nearby assets but also for that of the developer. By comparing the before and after construction reports, both parties can readily identify any existing building defects as well as damage that might have transpired as a result of any development work.
This can assist in not only resolving disputes but removing disputes completely.
