A dilapidation survey is a study of the state of a property that is close to a construction project. The evaluation takes place before and after the building’s completion, detailing any injuries to the property in a report. At the conclusion of the job, reports are compared to see if neighbouring structures were damaged during construction.
In certain circumstances, a dilapidation survey on the structures near to the project site may be required by law. It is an excellent idea to perform a report whether there are any legal requirements or not. This protects you against property owners making fraudulent claims that your construction, demolition, or excavation caused damage to their home due to ground movement.
