Positive: Quality, Responsiveness, Value Very Impressed the Brads attention to detail for the dilapidation report. The report was very thorough and his attention to detail and promptness was impressive. Price for the report was much more reasonable and I highly recommend him for a qualified delap report. The fact that he has prior legal experience to supported clients when they have needed back up from the report is what won us over. Thank-youMatt Larkin
Brad Scott provides an extremely valuable wealth of knowledge when it comes to building issues and conducts himself in a very professional and genuine manner at all times. He attended site and spent a long period of time going over our building projects defects, then promptly provided an Expert Witness Report for our hearing.

Thank you Brad for inspecting the property for my son and daughter in law. They have since moved in and rectified the defects you had found during your inspection. We are amazed at what you found and thank you for your help.James Wright - Point Piper
Dear Brad I wanted to say thank you for your services provided recently. We are nearing completion of our project home and a few weeks ago we needed to go through the Practical Completion with our builder. We are so glad we found you in time. You were able to visit the site on short notice and provided us with invaluable information that the building company would otherwise have 'got away with'.Chantal McGarr
You were prompt on site and happily answered questions and pointed out defects and other items we may want to bring up with the builder at that time. The report you then provided for us was both quickly prepared and comprehensive. We were able to simply email a copy to our builder and those defects have now been fixed or in the process of being rectified. So thank you Brad, we would have no hesitation in recommending your services.David Luke

All your reports are extremely detailed from both a technical & legal perspective, always professionally & concisely presented, & just as importantly - always timely.Gary McNeil
We initially employed Brad Scott from Best Building Inspections to conduct a Building Expert Witness Report on our property. His service was prompt, courteous and professional. He identified multiple defects in our property which eventually became the basis of a home building dispute in the NCAT (Department of Fair Trade). Brad displayed professionalism and competency throughout the entire process. His confidence and excellent communication skills when dealing with other professionals were also outstanding. We would highly recommend Brad and Best Building Inspections to any individual who requires this type of service.Dr Prem & Julia Kumar

What a dilapidation report is
Before carrying out building work such as excavation, demolition works or for instance compaction of soil, an expert report on the existing state of the structures that surround your property should be carried out. The report is used to record down in writing the condition of the existing structures so as to identify any damage to the structure caused by the construction work.
Why you should get one?
Anyone planning construction work on their property should prepare a dilapidation report. A dilapidation report may or may not be required by law, but getting one is always good practice. It protects you from potential disputes with your neighbours who might attempt to claim that construction work has caused damage to their property.
What is included in the report?
Ensure your dilapidation report is carried out by a competent and professional building consultant. A dilapidation report is a detailed record of the existing structures that surround a property or building, they are supported by corresponding photographs, measurements and diagrams. They are signed by both the owner of the property being inspected and the party who is about to commence the building work.
