The proposed works can include a new unit building (particularly if there are underground garages), new house construction, renovation or alteration works, road works, underground tunneling or demolition.
When is a Dilapidation Inspection Report Needed?
An initial pre-dilapidation inspection report is undertaken prior to any construction works commencing so that any cracking and/or damage to the neighbouring properties and/or council assets can be documented to protect both parties from any potential claims.
A final post-dilapidation inspection report is undertaken on completion of the works and any changes are documented so that remedial works can be undertaken or in any case a dispute can be resolved by issuing our report as a piece of evidence.
Council usually requests a dilapidation report, prior to most construction sites beginning, so any bonds taken can be returned on completion of the construction works if the outside of a building site such as pathways, kerbing, drainage, road and any other conditions of the surrounding Council property are not damaged.
