What is a Dilapidation Survey?
A Dilapidation Report is a report on the visual condition of a property at given time. The Dilapidation Report is a building inspection undertaken before any construction, excavation or demolition works commence in surrounding properties. The building inspector will identify any visible cracks or movement in the property, existing damage to the property and the state of any particular aspects of the property that are likely to be affected by the construction, demolition or excavation works.
What is included in the dilapidation report?
The inspection includes the driveway, paths and fences. All findings are recorded on a report that contains photographic evidence of the state of the property. These reports are generally undertaken on properties surrounding the planned works, and is undertaken before work begins and after works are finished. Comparing the two reports offers a clear picture of any damage that might have occurred as a result of the works.
Who organises the dilapidation report?
A Dilapidation Inspection is usually requested by a construction company or builder, however, if you are planning any major construction on your property (or planning to use heavy machinery) and the work is close to neighbouring buildings, you should have this inspection so that you are evidence in case your neighbours bring legal action. You can avoid costly disputes that arise from your neighbours claiming damages as a result of the works undertaken.
Do I need a dilapidation report?
This will depend on the proximity of the neighbouring buildings in relation to the works and what the authorities in your area require. Even if you are not required by law for the works that you are doing, dilapidation reports can save you from preventable legal issues if neighbours claim that your construction, demolition or excavation works have caused damage to their homes.
