Protecting your property investments is crucial. At QBM, we provide strata services to help ensure the safety and compliance of all your buildings and those around them through comprehensive inspection and reporting. At QBM, two of our cornerstone services in Brisbane are building inspections and dilapidation reports. If you are planning to undergo building renovations or looking for a routine inspection, these things can be essential to have.
What is a Building Inspection?
Getting a trusted building inspection is essential before purchasing a property. QBM’s Brisbane building inspections identify maintenance items and structural faults. Essentially, the inspection process identifies both major structural issues as well as smaller issues that need repair. Identifying and rectifying smaller issues in a timely manner prevents them from turning into major structural problems over time.
Common strata problems identified in building inspections include: rusting structural steel, cracks in concrete foundations, rotten balcony timber, and termite damage. When these problems are identified early, they can be fixed for a more reasonable cost and prevent unnecessary injury. Leaving these issues to fester can cause greater damage, leading to high repair bills, accidents, and even deaths.
Building inspections are part of our comprehensive strata services here at QBM. Our team knows what to look for and is fully licensed and insured, ensuring you get the right information to keep your buildings compliant and safe.
What is a Dilapidation Report?
Are you planning renovations, construction, or demolition? These are big undertakings and you want to ensure everything goes right. Before you start, it’s important to survey your building and any adjoining properties. You want to check their condition to ensure it is suitable for construction. This is because major construction or demolition of a building can affect the structural integrity of the building you’re working on and that of surrounding properties. This can happen whether you share a structural wall or if both properties are free-standing.
A Brisbane dilapidation report can help you mitigate any risk of damage to property owned by the council or neighbouring properties. This report gives you an accurate record of the condition of all existing buildings both before and after the construction, renovation, or demolition of properties surrounding your existing building.
Your QBM Brisbane dilapidation report includes:
- Detailed photographic evidence of the condition of buildings
- Identification of prominent defects
- A pre-construction condition survey
- A post-construction condition survey
Why Do You Need a Dilapidation Report or Survey?
A dilapidation survey can protect you against legal problems and liability issues down the road. By having a report with evidence of the condition of your building and surrounding structures before any construction, renovation, reconstruction, or demolition has begun, you can safeguard your assets if future problems arise.
Our aim at QBM is to provide you with unbiased reporting and surveying. We present you with the facts. Our goal is to ensure that the liability for any problems or damage that occurs as a result of the construction is fairly evaluated and presented. We examine properties for all types of damage including but not limited to:
- Water seepage
- Spalling concrete
Fair and Accurate Assessment of Liability Damage
Unexpected damage can occur in surprising ways. It can be difficult to attribute liability without the right documentation. Our thorough pre and post-construction condition surveys provide you with an honest and trustworthy report of the evidence. Our goal is to protect your assets and the safety of the occupants who live and work in your buildings.
Building inspections and Brisbane dilapidation reports can help assess the damage on your property so that you can fix it before it becomes a dangerous problem.
