Commercial & Residential Dilapidation Surveys
Are You Undertaking a Major Civil Works Program As a Developer or Construction Company? Or Are You Living Next Door to a Development That You Think May Impact Your Property? Dilapidation Survey!
- During construction neighbouring properties can sustain minor cracking and defects caused by vibrations, soil dewatering and construction errors. A dilapidation survey should be undertaken prior to any site works commencing, and during the final maintenance period of construction projects.
- Either way, to protect your interests a dilapidation survey report ensures that the current condition of a property is recorded prior to site works or building.
- The dilapidation survey can be relied upon to settle any potential disputes regarding the condition of a property before construction has commenced.
- Dilapidation surveys can limit problems or disputes between property owners and construction companies.
What Will We Do?
- Arrange a BCI building inspector to visit the property
- Organise access to the property with the owner or occupant
- Undertake a comprehensive inspection of the property with photos
- Prepare a dilapidation survey and email or post it or you may collect it from our office in Como
