Dilapidation Reports

Dilapidation Reports: Protect Your Investment with Eden Inspections

As a property owner, you understand the importance of protecting your investment, therefore it is essential to consider the effects of the council or neighbours doing work in close proximity to your home.

Construction projects have the potential to cause damage to your house, leading to ongoing issues and a decrease in its overall value. Disputes may arise over damages or changes to surrounding properties, which is why Dilapidation Reports are essential to safeguard both parties involved.

Unfortunately for many homeowners, a Dilapidation Report generally comes as an afterthought when they realise they have no record of the condition of their property prior to the incident and therefore no proof of when the incident occurred and who caused it. This generally means that the homeowner is left out of pocket to cover the costs and the council or neighbours are free to wash their hands of the incident.

Dilapidation Reports are Important

Dilapidation Reports help to avoid disputes and protect both parties involved in a construction project. Many people arrange a Dilapidation Report prior to undertaking any additions, extensions or constructions on their property. This ensures they reduce the risk of unforeseen costs arising.

The dilapidation survey provides a comprehensive assessment of the condition of the property and its surroundings before construction begins. This helps ensure that any damage or changes that occur during the construction process are accurately assessed and attributed to the correct party.

Dilapidation Reports also provide peace of mind for property owners, as they can be used as evidence in legal disputes.

What is a Dilapidation Report?

A Dilapidation Report shows the Condition of the Property at a Specific Time

A professional inspector attends the home, completing a visual inspection of the property and documents it through extensive photos and written evidence. The report covers any pre-existing damage or defects, such as cracks, subsidence, or other structural issues. We also provide recommendations for repairs or remediation, if necessary.

The report also includes information about the condition of neighbouring properties, such as walls, fences, and other structures – things that might affect future construction works, excavation or demolition.

At Eden Inspections, we use a Dilapidation Report template that is thorough and covers the below areas of your property:

  • Driveways
