A dilapidation report will record the condition of existing defects before you start building or demolition.
Jims building inspections will document the condition of the building prior to works commencing. We then return to the site after work is finished to list any changes in the condition of the building. Specifically we look for any damage contributable to the adjoining property.
“It is advisable to have a dilapidation report done if there is a likelihood of construction or demolition work on adjoining properties that may affect your home.”
The type of work and damage our dilapidation report covers include:
- New construction projects
- Work on semi-detached buildings
- Builders undertaking extensions and renovations
This report is for:
- Trench digging
- Compaction of earth
- Drilling or Boring
This report is used for:
- Impact damage
- Water damage
- Dust/dirt or debris
The report records:
We can also service major volume builders, state and national tenders or the commercial requirements of civil contracting companies. We offer quick, standardized and reliable services and partnerships.

"I was so impressed with the way Andrew responded to me and assisted at short notice. I was amazed at the report that Andrew had presented to me after doing a pre-handover on my new home.I would not have picked up on half the things that Andrew did.It was money well spent and would recommend Andrew to anyone."June 27, 2015 by Angela SpargoInspector: Jim's Building Inspections (Adelaide, SA)
"Ben's service gave me confidence and peace of mind prior to submitting an offer."Jul 09, 2014 by Michael JonesInspector: Jims Building Inspections (Berry, NSW)
"I was really happy with the service I received from start to finish. Andrew was well-organized, arrived at the property on time, conducted a thorough inspection, answered all of my questions and sent a comprehensive report to me via email on the same day. Having a building inspection done was well worth the money because I was provided with a list of all of the potential problems which needed to be addressed with the property, many of which I would not have noticed myself. Very happy to recommend this service."April 22, 2015 by Marco SanInspector: Jim’s Building Inspections (Adelaide, SA)
