Property Defects Report

Ensuring that you get your money’s worth when it comes to new construction or other contracted building works requires detailed inspection. 

Vital Building & Pest Inspections can provide the defects reports you need when it comes to both residential and commercial properties.  

Defects reports are commonly carried out to help determine the actual property condition to provide clarity and help settle concerns raised by homeowners, property owners, and contractors over poor workmanship and other issues. These defects may arise during the construction process due to poor workmanship, in the weeks after completion of construction, or around the time of completion. Vital Building & Pest Inspections’ construction progress and pre-handover inspections reports are designed to help identify any such building defects. 

A dilapidation inspection report is the documentation of the actual condition of the property and immediate surroundings prior to any construction event that may affect the building taking place. 

With a comprehensive report, you can protect your rights and hold your contractors liable for defects and change to the building’s prior condition. These reports can also play a role in tribunal or court proceedings.
