Building Dilapidation Reports Melbourne
What is a Building Dilapidation Report ?
A building dilapidation report takes a “snapshot” of the condition of a building at any given time and provides an accurate view of the property through pictures and a detailed written report.
For building insurance and liability purposes it is important to document the condition of your property or the neighbouring properties before demolition or building begins.
When should I get a Dilapidation Report ?
If you’re a builder or owner builder you should get a dilapidation report of the surrounding buildings prior to work commencing so you can prove the existing condition of the buildings.
If you are a building owner having work commencing next door then you should have a dilapidation report done so you can prove that damage was done through the building work. A dilapidation report will save you a lot of heartache and drama if you have to make a claim or if someone makes a claim against you.
