Eliminating or reducing the potential for a dispute with adjacent property owners can be reduced by taking precautions prior to commencing construction.  During construction, the neighbouring properties may sustain minor cracking or other issues related to vibration or other causes and in order to mitigate potential future disputes, developers, contractors or property owner may commission a report. 

Our dilapidation reports provide a detailed schedule of the condition of the property at a given time and include video, photographic evidence and a narrative description.  We complete the inspection in two stages – just prior to construction or site works commencing and within the final maintenance period of the project.

Items recorded during our inspections include:

  • Cracks to paths and driveways;
  • External and internal wall cracks;
  • Window glazing;
  • Roof coverings;
  • Boundary fences;
  • Retaining walls;
