DILAPIDATION REPORT DEFINITION


A dilapidation report is a snapshot on the condition of a property at two specific times. Initially, the report records the condition of a property; including any visible damage, that exists prior to the commencement of nearby works (building, demolition or excavation works). The report then documents the condition of the property after the works are complete. The report can therefore be used to protect the owner of property from any claims regarding damage, that is alleged to have occurred due to building works.
