Dilapidation Survey or Pre-Construction Condition Survey

  1. What is a Dilapidation Survey?

Dilapidation Survey is also known as a pre-construction condition in Malaysia. A dilapidation survey done by a Professional Building Surveyor is an inspection of the existing structural condition of of the surrounding buildings before the commencement of a demolition, construction or development. All prominent defects in the form of cracks, settlement, water seepage, corrosion of reinforcement, subsidence and other building defects will be recorded in photographs together with notes.

A Post-Construction Condition Survey will highlight any building defects that have occurred (or caused by the construction works) since the first survey, or after a construction.


  1. When a Dilapidation Survey is required?

A dilapidation survey shall be conducted by a Professional Building Surveyor before the commencement of a demolition, construction or development.

For Contractors & Developers:

  • Before you carry out any excavation, piling works, demolition, renovation or construction of a new development. A formal dilapidation survey can save you from unnecessary claims.

For Property Owners:

  • Before renovation, alteration & addition (A & A), demolition, construction or reconstruction work carried out at your neighbouring areas.

  • Before major aboveground or underground construction works carried out in the surrounding areas of your property.

In a post construction condition survey, an building inspection and a comparison will be made against the dilapidation survey/ pre-construction condition survey.


  1. What is the purpose of a Dilapidation Survey?

The purpose of the building surveys is to provide an accurate record, pre construction and post construction works, of the condition of the buildings. While it is not expected that neighbouring construction will cause damage to any building, the survey is undertaken as a precautionary measure.

The survey report done by a Professional Building Surveyor will assist the building owners, contractors and developers in the event of a claim for damage, as the building survey report provides written documentation on the pre-construction condition of the property.
