How Dilapidation Reports Perth Work

Initial Dilapidation Inspection Perth

  • A professional inspector visits the property & conducts a thorough examination. They document the current condition of the property, including its interior and exterior features using detailed notes, photographs & video recordings. This initial dilapidation inspection captures the property’s condition before any construction or excavation activities commence. It serves as a baseline reference for future dilapidation comparison.

Final Dilapidation Inspection Perth

  • 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 for a final dilapidation report which documents the extent of change that has occurred. This final dilapidation report is very useful should there be changes over the construction period and can save you thousands in the long run.
  • Once the construction is completed, or if there has been a change in the condition of the property during or after the construction has completed, a final dilapidation report inspection is conducted to assess the property’s condition. The inspector compares the post-construction state with the initial dilapidation inspection report, identifying any new damages or changes.

Dilapidation Report Perth

  • Based on the assessments & findings of both inspections, a comprehensive dilapidation report is prepared which compares the initial dilapidation inspection with the final dilapidation inspection. It includes detailed descriptions, photographs & expert recommendations for repairs or remedial actions.
  • The dilapidation report serves as essential documentation in case of disputes, insurance claims or legal proceedings related to damages caused by nearby construction. It provides an objective assessment of the property’s condition, supporting the involved parties in resolving any conflicts.

I found WA Building Inspections Perth very helpful. They responded quickly to my request, provided a competitive price, did a detailed report and then discussed the report with me for a lengthy period. Russel did my inspection and he could not have been more helpful in explaining the report and recommending opportunities to address findings. I would definitely go back to WA Building Inspections Perth and Russel for advice and future building inspections.

Russell’s pre-purchase report was exactly what we needed for peace of mind. He was thorough and detailed, outlining what he could and couldn’t achieve, with action plans recommended where needed! We were unsure about some wording or recommendations but Russell answered our calls and explained these perfectly and the suggested way forward. 100% worth the price, especially if you need that peace of mind at the end.

Very thorough inspection conducted by Russell. Picked heaps of defects in our roof and compiled a very detailed report about everything done wrong. He clearly explained the problems against the Australian Construction standards and code. I'd highly recommend WA Building Inspections to anyone in doubt of their house construction or before purchasing an established property. We're very lucky to have such a professional service. Worth every dollar paid.Thanks Russell & Sarah.

I had a fantastic experience with Russell recently with a pre-purchase inspection. Being interstate and purchasing was always hoing to be diffivult.I was very impressed with Russell's knowledge, patience and pride in his work. Russell took the time after working hours on the day that the report was completed to have an in depth discussion about the detail on the report. I came out of the discussion feeling a lot more confident.Russell is easy to talk to and knows how to explain complex issues in layman's terms. Can't recommend highly enough!

Best decision I made. Russell is an absolute legend. Answered all my questions, explained everything beautifully, patient, and most importantly - had my back when dealing with the builders. I had to go through 2 PCIs with the builders, finally on the 3rd did they fix all the issues. If it wasn't for Russell's knowledge and advice, I never would've gotten my house in the acceptable condition it is now. Shout out to Sarah as well for booking in my final last minute inspection, due to builders messing me around. Top shelf service and fair priced.Marina

I called Russell for a last minute building & pest inspection and although he was very busy, he still managed to squeeze us in. He completed a very detailed report, which both our broker and conveyancer made comments on how impressed they were with how through he was, which is a huge compliment to him and his service! I called Russell after reading the report with a couple of questions, which he took 15 minutes to explain to me everything I asked and more. He is very professional and knowledgeable, and moving forward I would only ever use his service. Sarah his admin team is also very lovely to deal with and responsive, they both made the whole process so easy! Huge compliments to them both. Highly recommend!! And very well priced.

We had a fantastic experience with Russell recently with a pre-purchase inspection. My husband and I are first home buyers and have very little first hand experience with building issues and we were absolutely blown away by Russell's knowledge, patience and pride in his work. Russell took the time after working hours on the day that the report was completed to have an in depth discussion about the detail on the report. We came out of the discussion feeling a lot more confident in our understanding of level of work required with the property. Russell is easy to talk to and knows how to explain complex issues in layman's terms. Can't recommend highly enough!

Russell McCarthy was able to fit us in very last minute despite already being booked out. We had a strict contract deadline and the outcome of his review was going to determine the success or failure of our property purchase. The fact that he went over and above to help us despite being hotly in demand demonstrates his humility and strong passion to help others which goes beyond just doing his job. He is highly rated and the best in his field yet is down to earth and genuinely kind. I will only use him going forward and recommend others do the same. A property purchase is a big financial decision and not worth risking by going to anyone other than Russell.

Russell carried out the PCI (Practical Completion Inspection) for our first property (in Willetton) on Wednesday the 21st of September 2022. He conducted the inspection very professionally. He arrived well in advance at the property. So, when we went to meet him at the site he was already halfway through the inspection.After he had finished inspecting the home he discussed, both with us and with the Builder appointed Site Supervisor, about the various aspects of the inspection in plain & clear terms. The discussion was a learning experience for us (the clients) as we learnt some essential things about building structures.Inspection Report was detailed, specific and clear. Also, his T&Cs are acceptably good. Last but not least, his service is reasonably priced and is affordable. If asked I will definitely recommend him to my friends and I am confident they will thank me for recommending Russell & WA Building Inspections.

I highly recommend Russell . I chose him because of all his positive reviews and that paid off as he was so thorough and found many defects.. every dollar spent was worth it as I would have never picked up many of those faults myself and I’m extremely grateful . I also found the company was very accommodating in scheduling my inspection at short notice.

With only a limited time gap, and several other companies unable to meet the terms of contract, I tried WA Building Inspections. From the moment I could book online within 24hrs, to the very professional and prompt service from Russell, it has been a very simple process. We received a comprehensive 27 page report for a combined building and Pest report, for a awesome cost. I couldn't recommend Russell and his services more highly. Thank you so much for making this so easy for me.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a dilapidation report be used for insurance purposes?

Yes, a dilapidation report in Perth can be used for insurance purposes. It serves as valuable documentation to support insurance claims in case of damages caused by nearby construction activities. Our dilapidation report provides an objective assessment of the property’s condition before the construction, helping establish the extent of any subsequent damages. As registered builders, we also provide expert commentary on the dilapidation report which is seen as expert testimonial by insurance companies and governing bodies.

What is the difference between the initial dilapidation inspection & final dilapidation report?

dilapidation report perth

 

  1. A pre-construction or initial dilapidation report captures the condition of a property before any nearby construction or excavation activities commence. It serves as a baseline reference to assess any damages that may occur during or after the construction process.
  2. A final dilapidation report is conducted after the construction is completed to compare the property’s condition with the pre-construction assessment.
Are dilapidation reports legally required in Perth?

dilapidation report perth

 

While dilapidation reports may not be legally required in all cases in Perth, they are often recommended & encouraged by local authorities, especially for larger construction projects. It is advisable to consult with local building regulations & relevant stakeholders to determine if a dilapidation report is mandatory for your specific project. Regardless if it’s legally mandated or not, dilapidation surbeys are a common sense approach if you are a developr or home owner to mitigate risk (if you are a developer) or protect your property (if you are a home owner).

How long should I keep a copy of the dilapidation report?

dilapidation report perth

We recommend keeping a copy of the dilapidation report for an extended period of at least 6 years which is the general statute of limitations for claims in Perth. Keeping the report on file ensures that you have access to the documented condition of your property in case any disputes or claims arise in the future.

What is a Dilapidation Report Perth?

Dilapidation reports capture the visible structural condition of a property prior to nearby or neighbouring renovation works, construction or excavation being carried out. We produce the report for the purpose of comparison at a later date. These are valuable to both the developer and nearby home owners who may be impacted by construction activities.

I'm a developer. Why do I need a Dilapidation report Perth?

Read everything you need to know about commercial dilapidation reports here.

Lets summarise it:

A developer or builder may need a commercial dilapidation report for a few reasons:

1. Risk Mitigation: Before kicking off any construction or excavation activities, a developer wants to assess the condition of neighbouring properties to identify potential risks. A dilapidation report provides a comprehensive assessment of the existing condition of nearby properties, documenting any pre-existing defects or damages. This helps you as the developer mitigate risks & take necessary precautions to prevent any claims or disputes related to damages caused by their construction activities.

2. Regulatory Compliance: In many councils in Perth, obtaining a dilapidation report is a legal requirement for developers. Local councils and regulators may require developers to conduct thorough inspections & provide detailed reports to ensure compliance with building regulations. By obtaining a dilapidation inspection in Perth, you as the developr demonstrate your commitment to following regulatory guidelines & responsible construction practices.

3. Professional Image & Branding: If you are a developor, you work hard to maintain your positive reputation & build strong relationships within the community. By proactively conducting dilapidation surveys in perth & providing reports, you show your commitment to responsible development & a respect for neighbouring properties. This can help establish trust & credibility with stakeholders, including local residents, community organisations and of course boost your brand across Perth.

4. Documentation & Reference: Dilapidation reports serve as valuable documentation and an audit trail for developers. They provide a baseline record of the condition of neighbouring properties before construction activities begin. This can then be compared with the final dilapidation report that can be done at the conclusion of construction activities. This documentation can be referenced during & after construction to compare the state of the properties and assess any potential damages that may have occurred. Having accurate and comprehensive records can be crucial in resolving disputes & protecting the developer’s interests.

I'm a home owner neighbouring construction work. Why do I need a Dilapidation report Perth?

dilapidation inspection perth

If you are a home owner that is neighbouring construction work that is current or planned, a dilapidation report Perth is a valuable tool to protect your home from any damage that can be caused to your home due to this construction.

Neighboring homeowners require a dilapidation report for these reasons:

  1. Property Protection: Construction or excavation activities near your property can potentially cause damage or structural issues. For example, we regularly see cracked brickwork, cracked rendering etc caused by neighbouring construction. By obtaining a dilapidation report in Perth, you as the homeowner can establish the baseline condition of your property before the nearby construction begins. This report acts as a reference point to identify any new damages or changes that occur during or after the construction process. It helps you protect your property & ensures that any damages caused by the construction activities can be properly addressed and resolved by the developor.
  2. Evidence and Claims: If you as the homeowner believe that your property has been negatively impacted by nearby construction, a dilapidation inspection Perth serves as valuable evidence. It provides a documented record of your property’s condition before the construction activities started. In the event of disputes or claims regarding damages caused by the construction, the dilapidation report supports your case & help in resolving the matter more effectively. In our experience, when developers are presented with a professional dilapidation survey that shows damage has been caused, they do not hesitate to rectify the damage caused.
  3. Insurance & Legal Purposes: Did you know that some insurance companies or legal entities in Perth may require a dilapidation report as part of their evaluation processes? Having a comprehensive dilapidation inspection report can support insurance claims or legal proceedings, especially if damage occurs due to nearby construction activities. It provides an objective assessment of your property’s condition, reinforcing your position in insurance or legal matters.
