When do I need a dilapidation report?

Unlike our pre-purchase and handover inspection reports, our dilapidation surveys are conducted when earthworks or roadworks are operating close to commercial or residential buildings. Often commissioned by the appropriate local authorities, they are a way for both the roadworks team and occupants to feel assured about any potential damage that can occur. That is, if a claim is made about any cracking or damage to the building, our pre-construction dilapidation surveys will make it clear if the crack is new or old.  To find out more about our dilapidation services, contact our trusted team of professionals via or on 1800 466 456.

Efficient and Accurate Dilapidation Surveys

As a small local business, we understand the importance of providing efficient and accurate results. Working around the clock, we ensure that you receive your dilapidation survey report as quickly as possible. This way, you can commence your construction project as early as possible, knowing you’ve received quality assurance from our qualified professionals. Despite providing a fast turnover, we place a high amount of care with our inspections, ensuring that each building is inspected thoroughly.

A dilapidation survey generally includes:

  • Inspection of all brickwork and external concrete areas
  • Inspection of tiled roof areas
  • Going room-to-room in each building
  • Checking for dummy, loose or cracked floor and wall tiles
  • Checking wall and ceiling linings
  • Climbing under high set houses to assess structural posts and floorboards
  • Assessing outdoor sheds
  • And more

If we can physically assess an area, we will. That way, you will have the legal documents necessary to prove what damage occurred and when.Ensuring each building is inspected thoroughly, we include in your reports photographs and an explanation of the defects this allows you and the home owner to view on paper or a computer the defects found prior to the construction of the road or project.

Asbestos Inspections and Audits on the Fraser Coast

Building Inspection Reports are Fraser Coast domestic and commercial building inspection specialists, providing a range of different services including asbestos inspections and audits. With many years in the commercial and home building industry, owner Rod is as experienced as they come. As a small family-owned business, the team at Building Inspection Reports places a strong emphasis on customer service. Ensuring the safety of our local community, this includes conducting extensive asbestos audits. Asbestos Audit’s are required for every commercial building or a workplace constructed before 30 December 1989.  If you would like to organise an asbestos inspection, please call us today on 1800 466 456.

Asbestos Audits for Commercial Buildings:

Under Queensland Legislation, any commercial building or workplace built before December 1989 is required to have an asbestos audit, register and management plan. Although safe when left untouched, the Queensland government states Asbestos in the workplace must be identified and managed to insure the workplace is safe and without risk to workers. The audit and management plan sets out what action is required in case the asbestos is found to be disturbed.

What’s included in your Asbestos Audits?

With our asbestos audit services, we search for any asbestos in your commercial or industrial buildings. If a product is believed to contain asbestos, we take a sample and send it to a laboratories for analysis then the register of asbestos found is written up disclosing the type of asbestos and what needs to be done to make it safe. From our sample analysis and register, we make a comprehensive plan, detailing all required action. This could mean removing asbestos or just painting it or having a plan in place in case the asbestos is disturbed and becomes air borne.

In a house constructed before December 1989 it is a necessary step that needs to be taken before renovating.

How often will I require a Commercial Asbestos Audit?

How frequently you will need a commercial asbestos audit depends largely on your industry. As some industries are more likely than others to disturb asbestos in your building, some businesses will need an asbestos annually, whereas other may only require an audit every 5 years. For instance, a business that uses forklifts and machinery within their building is more likely to disturb asbestos than a hairdresser or accounting business. All our recommendations will be listed in our Asbestos Audits, where you will be given a management plan to ensure the safety of your employees and customers. For more information about our asbestos audits, speak to one of our qualified staff on 1800 466 456.

Asbestos Audits for Renovation Projects:

As stated, all commercial buildings built before December 1989 require an asbestos audit. However, although this service is not legally required for domestic households, we recommend that all homes include an asbestos inspection prior to renovation. As households are not legally required to register any asbestos with the appropriate authorities, your home may possess asbestos that you are unaware of. Consequently, you may be exposed to hazardous substances when you begin renovating.

If you would like to enquire about our pre-purchase home inspection services, get in touch via email or call 1800 466 456.

Do I need a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection?

A pre-purchase building inspection is a comprehensive report based on the age of the house or commercial building that a buyer receives regarding the condition of the property that has been previously occupied. This report informs the potential buyer of any serious defects with the building as well as possible ongoing maintenance issues. Pre-purchase building inspections are important given the difficulty that an inexperienced person may have assessing whether there is significant or minor damaged to the buildings they are about to purchase.

Our Pre-Purchase Building Inspections:

Our pre-purchase home inspections are comprehensive. As we are Fraser coast’s leading building inspection service, we have access to a number of qualified professionals to assist us with our pre-purchase house inspections. This includes a termite inspection specialist, who will complete our detailed pre-purchase pest report with us, we can also help you organise licensed plumber inspection and a licenced electrician inspection to assess the building for you.

Assessing both the interior and exterior of your home for the most minor detail, we:

  • Check the outside of the building
  • Check the roofing on the building
  • Check each room of your building
  • Climb into the roof space of the building
  • Climb into accessible access openings
  • Climb under timber floor to assess the sub- floor space
  • Inspect any external garages, sheds or outbuildings
  • And more

If there is an area of your house that we can physically access, we will do it. However, please note that our inspections consider the age of your house. For instance, the expectations for a 4-year-old home varies quite drastically from 100-year-old homes. Although it will not affect the attention to detail we take, it will guide our recommendations when we prepare our inspection reports.

Precautions with Pre-Purchase Inspection Reports:

We are passionate about our customers and want to ensure they receive inspections they can rely on. For that reason, we want to warn our customers about the legalities of their inspections. If you receive an inspection report that is not in your name and has not been addressed to you by a licensed housing inspector – such as the team at Building Inspection Reports – it will not stand as a legal document. This means you will not be able to make claims if you find problems with your house or commercial building. A pre-purchase report is a small investment for your potential new purchase: get in touch with our team of experts for a quality assurance service that Fraser Coast locals can trust.
