Council's dilapidation report service

Inner West Council currently offers a  limited dilapidation report service to record the existing condition of a house to provide a baseline record of the condition  of the property . The main components of the dilapidation include dated photographs of building/s or other items on the property and a description of existing conditions.  

To participate in the Inner West Council's dilapidation report service, property owners must first participate in the property dilapidation service provided by the the WestConnex contractor. For more information about the contractor's dilapidation report services please refer to the following link.

  1. The Customer acknowledges that the Council has no expertise in the provision of dilapidation surveys (hereinafter referred to as Survey).
  2. Save to the extent mandated by law, the Council makes no warranty as to the accuracy or utility of any Survey provided. In particular, the Council makes no warranty that the Survey will be capable of being used in any claim for loss or damage from an entity associated with construction of the WestConnex project.
  3. The Survey has been prepared based on visual observations only by the Council at the time of conducting the Survey. In some circumstances, the performance of the Survey may have been limited by a range of factors such as time, access or operational constraints.
  4. In preparing the Survey, Council may have relied upon certain information (including verbal information) provided by the Customer and the Council did not attempt to independently verify the accuracy or completeness of that information. Expressly, the Survey did not include any assessment of the title to nor ownership of the surveyed property. The Council will not be liable to update or revise the Survey to take into account any events or emergent circumstances or facts occurring or becoming apparent after the date of the Survey.
  5. The Survey has been prepared for the benefit of the Customer only and no other party. The Council assumes no responsibility and will not be liable to any other person, including any successor in title, for any matters in relation to the Survey.
  6. Save to the extent mandated by law, the Customer releases the Council from liability in whatever form it may arise with respect to the provision and use of the Survey. For the sake of clarity, this release extends to liability arising from the negligent act or omission of Council or its employees.
