Over time, it is common for buildings to break down. Properties require certain repairs in order to maintain the structural integrity. In some cases, the building will need large maintenance and repairs in order to restore the property to its original state. A large question is how are these repairs determined and or discovered. This is where a dilapidation survey is helpful. Many individuals may not fully understand what exactly a dilapidation survey is and the significance of performing one. A dilapidation survey can be conducted by a third party trained professional in order to assess the property and any damages or repairs that are needed. The properly trained dilapidation surveyor will do a thorough walk-through of the property, asses any damages and or repairs that will be required, and then compile a fully detailed report for the property owner to review. Typically, it is a good idea to hire a third-party dilapidation surveyor because they have to connection to the prior tenant, landlords, or property owners. Therefore, the surveyor will be completely honest, professional, and compile a all-inclusive report.
A dilapidations surveyor will walk through the entire property in order to asses every single area. Another responsibility of a dilapidation surveyor is to provide inside to the landlord, or property management, as to whether tenants complied to the terms of the tenancy agreement or if the contract has been broken in any sense. Hiring a trained professional dilapidation surveyor is appropriate for not only apartments or homes but also retail spaces, offices, warehouses, workshops, industrial spaces, and leisure areas.
