Dilapidation Report

Why do I need a dilapidation report?

If you are planning on doing any renovations, you need to get a dilapidation report in order to record any existing defects, and the overall condition of the premises. This way, we can advise of any potential risks and help you to avoid making renovations that instead of improving your household and potentially increasing property value, end up costing you thousands to fix.

We will return once the renovations have finished, and document and advise on any changes in the condition of the building, so you can be sure of what changes have been made, and how this has impacted structural integrity and longevity of the building.

Are you a property manager?

If you are a property manager, Jim’s Building Inspections Adelaide’s dilapidation reports are perfect for you! You will want to ensure that the condition of the property is clearly documented by a trained and experienced building inspector. That way, our building inspectors can periodically inspect the property, and advise of any hard to see and detect defects. Most defects are easily concealed from those without the proper training. We have many years’ expense inspecting Adelaide properties, and have keen eyes for detail. We know what we are looking for to ensure the property you manage is being well treated and kept in great condition.

Our Adelaide building inspectors are also insured, so if anything goes wrong, we won’t be left in the dark! Not to mentioned, we are all backed by the Jim’s Group 100% satisfaction guarantee!

Renting a House?

We have years of experience with properties, and can even advice of potential damage that may occur during your tenancy.

Don’t risk losing your bond over simply missed defects, that any one of our Adelaide building inspectors would have picked up.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

Why do I need a pre-purchase inspection?

The reality is, buying a home is one of the largest financial commitments a person will make in their life! So why would you shop blind! We know that in Australia, 1 in 3 homes are sold with a major defect, which, had the home been inspected by one of our trained and experienced building inspectors, would have been picked up! Further, this can then be used a leverage for price negotiations which could save you thousands on the purchase price! One of the main reasons that we recommend building inspections in Adelaide is the fact that sellers will often place a ‘band aid’ solution over items that could raise concern to an untrained eye. For instance, we often see crack repairs both internally and to external brickwork that can be difficult to pick up without the kind of analysis that our building inspectors provide. Without a trained inspector going over the property as thoroughly as we do, you are liable to miss these ‘quick fix’ short-term solutions to property damage, that could cost you thousands in the long run! Often when purchasing a property, it is an exciting and emotional time! It is easy to fall so quickly in love with a property, that you overlook key steps that will help you to avoid purchasing a property that has pre-existing structural damage. Because of how quickly things can move during this process, it is so important to prioritise a building inspection be organised within your cooling off period. Don’t let your excitement lead you to make a decision that will cost you thousands in the long run!
