Our reports are fully compliant with Australian Standards (AS 4349.1-2007 – Inspection of Buildings, Part 1: Pre – Purchase Inspections – Residential Buildings’) and are performed by insured, professional licenced builders.
A Dilapidation Building Report details the existing condition of a structure, prior to building work being carried out on a neighbouring property.
Majority of councils, as part of a development application will require a dilapidation report be carried out on neighbouring structures.
A dilapidation building report will itemise each defect found on the property.
A building dilapidation report is useful in defence if any claims are made by the owner of a neighbouring property against you for damage they believe your building works may have been the cause of.
The report should be signed by both parties prior to commencement of work.
A strata report is a report detailing the financial state of the body corporate, management matters andany past known building problems.
A strata inspection will also report any major works that may have been planned or if any special levies have been placed on the owners.
