A Dilapidation report is often referred to as a Condition Report as it reflects the condition of a building or property at a point in time. Council often requires a dilapidation report by a suitably qualified building expert as a condition of approval. Dilapidation reports should be carried out on any adjoining properties or Council assets where construction is to takes place to ensure that any existing cracks or defects are documented.
A Dilapidation report, along with an extensive number of high clarity and resolution photographs will protect a homeowner, developer or civil works contractor against future claims for defects/cracks, or deterioration, which existed prior to the commencement of building works.
