A dilapidation report will record the condition of existing defects before you start building or demolition.
Jims building inspections will document the condition of the building prior to works commencing. We then return to the site after work is finished to list any changes in the condition of the building. Specifically we look for any damage contributable to the adjoining property.
“It is advisable to have a dilapidation report done if there is a likelihood of construction or demolition work on adjoining properties that may affect your home.”
The type of work and damage our dilapidation report covers include:
- New construction projects
- Work on semi-detached buildings
- Builders undertaking extensions and renovations
This report is for:
- Trench digging
- Compaction of earth
- Drilling or Boring
This report is used for:
- Impact damage
- Water damage
- Dust/dirt or debris
The report records:
We can also service major volume builders, state and national tenders or the commercial requirements of civil contracting companies. We offer quick, standardized and reliable services and partnerships.
