In many cases, construction and demolition can affect the condition of a site. The use of heavy equipment and large machines can cause soil to be displaced, foundations to be damaged, or trees being uprooted. At times, even nearby properties may be affected. Unfortunately, the buildings around a work site do sometimes get damaged.
What is a Dilapidation Report?
A dilapidation report serves to describe the state of a property in detail. Aside from reporting on a property’s general condition, it should include details of any damage and inform about anything that might affect or be affected by construction work on the site.
Contrary to initial impressions, a “dilapidation” report is not necessarily conducted for old, run-down buildings. The building could be in pristine condition, but a dilapidation report could still be necessary.
