SPI Property Inspections
Dilapidation Reports, Existing Conditions Survey, Property Conditions Report,
When you are carrying out construction or building work in close proximity to other properties, there is the chance that issues might arise, such as cracking, leaking or deterioration in the adjoining properties. This could be due to vibration from heavy equipment or excavation work for example.
To protect yourself against possible disputes or claims from your neighbours, you should consider an Existing Conditions inspection – also known as a Dilapidation Report. In this building inspection, the condition of each of the adjoining properties is documented before you begin the building works.
Councils may also request a survey covering areas beyond the building site, such as footpaths, kerbs and roads. You would need to repair any damage to these areas that might result from your project.
SPI Property Inspections can carry out house inspections for you and compile the comprehensive Dilapidation Reports. Each report provides a written and photographic record of any existing cracking or deterioration, so you have a benchmark against which to gauge any changes.
The Existing Conditions Reports should be agreed upon and signed by all affected parties before building work commences. SPI can also carry out a final inspection once the works have been completed so that any variations can be identified.
