What We Inspect

Dilapidation and Comparison Report

  • The report is carried out by experienced building inspectors and are generally of a visual nature, with all fixtures and finishes remaining in place. The report records the current condition of the property including any existing damage, highlighting areas that are likely to be affected by nearby works. It typically includes notes, measurements, photographs and diagrams which give an accurate picture of the state of the building being inspected. If there has been a change in the condition of the property during the works period and/or after the completion of the works you should contact us to re-inspect and document the extent of change that has occurred. This report is very useful should there be changes over the construction period and can save you thousands in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a Dilapidation and Comparison Report?

Any construction and demolition work always requires the use of heavy machinery and equipment. This can sometimes involve some major changes to the site it’s being carried out on such as removal of a lot of earth/soil, existing concrete slabs or footings, trees and knocking down existing structures.

This sort of work has the potential to cause damage to adjacent houses and nearby infrastructure.

A dilapidation report documents the condition of a property at a given point in time. We document any existing damage, and the state of any aspects of the property that could be affected by nearby demolition, construction or excavation.

These dilapidation and comparison reports are generally carried out on any nearby property which may be affected.

Our Customers

“What I loved most was when Russell said “no such thing as a basic building inspection” he said “it’s comprehensive because it MUST be comprehensive” – His report was littered with maintenance items and pointed out some major safety issues with the house that we have certainly missed, we eventually purchased the home and the items rectified at the seller expense – 5 Stars Russ – Well done”
Lilly – Burns Beach, Perth

“Russell did an extremely detailed building and pest inspection on a property in Hillman we were looking to buy, the report highlighted some major defects and led to us being able to pull out of the contract, I used Russell again on another property and the report was just as detailed, he settled our concerns and we ended up buying the home, Russell has since been able to assist us with council approvals for upcoming renovations, costings and trades, he has demonstrated over and over that he will go the extra mile, we are not just a number, that he is with us for the long run. I could not recommend him enough.”
Mathew – Hillman, Perth

“Service far beyond just the report, working with the agent, the tenants who were in the home, collecting keys, dropping them off, the 45 minute consultation once the report was done and for no extra cost – money well spent, I felt satisfied I used an inspector as detailed as WA Building inspections.”
Sarah – Nedlands, Perth
