Why do Perth Homeowners Need a Dilapidation Report?
Demolition, excavation and construction work can potentially cause damage to the surrounding properties such as yours.
It is highly recommended that anyone who is planning major renovations, extensions or construction projects should obtain a thorough dilapidation and condition report. Nearby demolition, infrastructure projects can result in building faults if proper measures are not in place.
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.
A Dilapidation report is a conditional inspection and reports that can be undertaken on the behalf of either:
- The owner or builder of the property where the demolition work is being undertaken can commission dilapidation inspections to be undertaken on all neighbouring properties, where the owner or builder want protection against unreasonable claims for damages caused by works.
- The owner of a property which is adjacent to a property where demolition or construction is being undertaken wants additional protection against damage being caused to their property.
What does the Report provide?
A dilapidation report on your Perth home covers the essential areas of the property which could be negatively impacted by adjacent or neighbouring construction works. These include:
- Internal walls, cornices, ceilings, floors.
- External walls, paving, flooring, eave, windows, drives, crossovers, fences, retaining walls
- Outbuildings and pergolas, patios, gazebos etc.
