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. Brad was unbelievable during the Tribunal hearing and was able to clearly and accurately articulate the various defects with our project. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brad to anyone who needs his expert advice / opinions. Once again, I can't thank you enough for you expert advice and support during this matter.Matt C
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
Best Building Inspections have never let me down in any areas requiring defect reports & Pre-Purchase building inspections. 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

When should I get a dilapidation report in St George?
Prior to the commencement of construction work, for instance before starting demolition, excavation works or soil compaction, an expert report on the current existing state of the surround structures to a property should be completed. This report notes down in writing the existing condition of structures that surround the property that work is being done on. It is kept as a record for future reference to identify any damage to neighbouring structures as a result of the construction works.
Why should I get one?
Obtaining a dilapidation report might be required by law, but it’s always a good idea to have one completed by a professional as security. If you’re planning on carrying out any construction work you should engage an expert to complete one before work starts. The report will guard you against potential claims from neighbours that state your building works caused damage to their property.
What do we include in our reports?
First and foremost you should make sure that a competent and experienced professional building consultant completes your report. Our dilapidation reports are supported with corresponding photos, diagrams and measurements. Both the owner of the property that is being inspected and the party that is carrying out the works should sign the report.
