What is a building condition report?

A building condition report provides an up-to-date and accurate condition of the building's structure and operating systems. With the help of a checklist, conditions and damage can be comprehensively documented and, based on this, recommendations can be made regarding repair work.

The condition report of a building serves as a comprehensive assessment of the property. This consists of a visual inspection to determine structural damage, weak points, wear and tear or even the wear and tear of the building. Subsequently, assessments and recommendations for repairs can then be carried out by trained building professionals.

How to create a building condition report?

The following describes how you create a building condition report. You carry out a comprehensive and detailed condition analysis of the building and take photographs of weak points and abnormalities in and on the property. After you have completed the inspection of the building condition with your signature, you will receive a final report. This allows you to clearly view your results.

The advantages of using an app to capture the condition of a building

Digital checklists are particularly suitable for documenting a building condition analysis. You can reliably assess regular building condition assessments and step by step all inspection points. Checklists minimise the risk of forgetting inspections and overlooking inspection points.

The mobile app and desktop software allow you to access the respective checklists regardless of location. This allows you to carry out a condition analysis of the building directly on site. All important data is then securely stored in the cloud. If problems occur and corrective measures become necessary, you can be informed immediately from the app.
