Dilapidation Reports & Inspections for clients & contractors

When carrying out extensive construction work near neighbouring properties, clients are liable for any damage caused due to the construction work, including damage by vibrations, soil dewatering and construction errors. Claims can range from allegations of causing major structural damage to minor internal cracking to adjacent properties.

We therefore carry out a Pre-construction Dilapidation inspection prior to any demolition or siteworks commencing. This report identifies any visual defects to the adjacent property including minor defects such as plaster cracks etc. All defects are documented and photographed where appropriate however minor, both internal and external. Our Post Construction Dilapidation inspections are carried out within the final maintenance period of the construction project and any new defects are recorded and fully assessed.

Having a fully independent dilapidation report is a useful safeguard against any possible future claims and helps avoid disputes and unsubstantiated claims by adjacent property owners after the construction project is completed.
