Dilapidation surveys are ideally performed upon existing structures in the immediate vicinity of planned construction prior to it commencing to eliminate or reduce the potential for a dispute with adjacent property owners. On occasions the neighbouring properties may sustain minor cracking during construction and in order to mitigate potential future disputes, developers, contractors or property owners may commission a report.
Our dilapidation reports provide a detailed schedule of the condition of the property at a given time and include video, photographic evidence and a narrative description. We complete the inspection in two stages – just prior to construction or site works commencing and within the final maintenance period of the project.
With our skills in performing structural investigations, remedial and forensic engineering we are well placed to perform dilapidation surveys and monitoring of distress progression with an allocated cause.
