Dilapidation Building Reports
Dilapidation reports Perth. A dilapidation report is a conditional inspection and report. This is supplied in a PDF with photographs of a building or property that is undertaken prior to and on completion of building works occurring on any adjoining or nearby properties.
This report details any existing damage, categorises existing cracking (and where it is occurring) and the state of any particular aspect of the property that is likely to be affected by nearby construction work.
It is highly recommended that anyone who is planning a major renovation, extension or construction project, obtains a thorough dilapidation and condition report. Nearby demolition, infrastructure projects and road works can also result in building faults if appropriate measures are not in place.
The builder undertaking the construction works, will not always request these reports and the responsibility will fall onto the property owner.
By law, you may be required to produce dilapidation reports, however it is always recommended to invest in these reports as they can be the most efficient way to avoid potential litigation disputes.
With so much at stake, why would you risk your financial wellbeing?
For a competitive and reasonable price, you can have the peace of mind knowing that experienced building inspection professionals are carrying out the job.
Reports are available within 24 hours of the inspection and produced in an easy to read format.
Advantages of Dilapidation Building Reports
A comprehensive building report by an independent building inspector, detailing pre-existing faults so that any new faults observed during the construction process are easily determined.
You will receive a typed, photographic report within 24 hours of the inspection. The dilapidation report will identify each individual room eg; entry, hall, lounge, kitchen etc along with an attached photo. Any cracking related damage is also noted.
The external walls are also listed in this way, excepting being identified via elevation (front, side, rear etc). We also provide a zip file with additional photos of each area.
Typically, up to 4 or 5 photos are taken of each section of property, however only 1 photo is attached to the report to reduce the file size.
This method has proven to be a very thorough and effective process, with over 100 photos attached for a standard 4 x 2 property. This ensures that all areas of a property are documented and photographic evidence is available should a future dispute arise.
About your Master Building Inspector
Unfortunately, the building inspection industry in Perth is unregulated. Therefore, it is paramount that the building inspector assessing your build is suitably experienced and qualified.
Many companies in Perth, state that their inspectors are registered. Sadly, this is a false statement, as there is currently no such qualification.
We recommend checking your inspectors credentials, as many so call “registered building inspectors” have no building experience or qualifications and come from accounting & management backgrounds.
Our Independent Building Inspectors are:
- Active members of the Housing Industry Association.
- Highly experienced building inspectors
- Fully insured with $1 million professional indemnity and $10 million public liability insurances.
- Qualified builders registered with the WA Building Commission.
