Dilapidation Surveys

A dilapidation survey is an inspection of the existing structural condition of the surrounding buildings and structures before the commencement of a demolition, construction or development. All prominent defects in the form of cracks, settlement, movement, water seepage, spalling of concrete, distortion, subsidence and will be recorded in photographs together with notes. This survey provides an accurate record of the condition of the buildings and is mostly undertaken as a precautionary measure. This will assist the building owners, contractors and developers in the event of a claim for damage, as the dilapidation survey report provides written documentation on the pre-construction condition of the property.
