What is a Dilapidation Report?
Generally speaking, it is a visual inspection of the neighbouring property(s) and structures adjacent to (or near) the site or location of the proposed construction work. All inspections are completed by registered building service providers in accordance with AS-4349.0 Inspection of Buildings.
A dilapidation report is an independent document that records the current condition of a property (or properties) at a given point in time, it records any existing damage. A dilapidation report is usually completed of neighbouring properties prior to nearby construction work taking place in adjacent or surrounding areas and is in the best interest of both parties (property owners and builders) as it protects property owners if any damage were to occur as a result of construction and protects builders from any exaggerated claims of damage from property owners.
Construction work can include a variety of work such as a new home build, renovations or drilling and digging to install water supply or sewer pipelines, paths, roads, level crossing removals, tunnels, commercial buildings and other government infrastructure projects, all of which can inflict potential structural damage to your property. Demolition and excavation can also have structural effects, as having heavy equipment operating nearby can result in soil slippage or erosion, damage to neighbouring retaining walls and fences and/or damaged paving, driveways and landscaping.
Superstruct will undertake a property inspection to carefully survey and document the current internal and external condition of the property(s). We ensure we compile a detailed report of the requested property, noting any existing internal or or external building defects such as cracks, gaps and subsidence.
