Building or renovating properties can get tricky, especially with neighbours nearby. Construction and demolition work on one property may indirectly cause damage to a neighbouring property. To avoid any legal disputes later on, it’s advisable to get a Dilapidation Report before starting any work.

In this article we will cover everything you need to know about dilapidation reports and how we can assist you.

What is a Dilapidation Report?

Dilapidation Reports work in two parts, they are undertaken prior to neighbouring works and following completion. They thoroughly document the present state of a property using both photos and detailed descriptions. These records are kept for future reference, especially in legal matters or disputes (they are accepted in the court of Law). They serve to pinpoint any discrepancies in property conditions that may have occurred before any construction work began.
