What is a dilapidation report?


An iCheck Dilapidation Report is a smart way to protect your interests before building works commence.

The dilapidation report is a report on the condition of a property at a given point in time. It records any existing damage, and the state of any particular aspects of the property that are likely to be affected by construction work, excavation or demolition. Then if a damage claim arises from an adjacent property owner in relation to your work you will have expert, independent evidence to support your position.


These reports are often carried out on nearby properties before work begins, and after it’s finished. Comparing the two reports offers a clear picture of any damage that might have occurred as a result of building, excavation or demolition work.


A qualified iCheck Inspector will inspect the building and the surrounding area and provide a comprehensive report that includes a photographic record of any evident, pre-existing defects. Our comprehensive reports are completed to a standard accepted by builders, architects and councils
