Near the end of this worksheet, we ask you about renovations / upgrades (what we call Capital Works Items) to the property. If you do not know the cost or date of any renovations, you cannot include it in your worksheet. If you know of any renovations that you do not know the cost and date of and you would like to have included in your report, you should consider using our Premium package and have one of building inspectors assess the size of your renovation claim. Examples: kitchen upgrade, bathroom upgrade, extensions, pergolas, paving, retaining walls etc etc. Having these included could add considerable value to your claim.
Note: Measure each room and add all the same rooms together. Eg: Bedroom One, 3m x 4m = 12 sq metres plus Bedroom Two 3.5m x 3.6m = 12.6 sq metres. Total 24.6 sq metres.
Polished Wood, Tiles, Slate and Concrete floors cannot be included in this section but if cost and date known they can be included in Renovation / Capital Works section below.

Renovations are usually major changes made to the original property that form part of the property but is not an inclusion. Eg: updating the kitchen cupboards is a renovation but putting in a new oven is not a renovation and should be made part of the inclusions.
In this section we need what was done, when it was done (month & year) and how much it cost. If you do not have receipts or proof of works carried out or details of the renovation works from the council you cannot include it as part of your worksheet. In this instance it may be advisable for you to opt for the Premium Package Option where we conduct an on-site inspection (by one of our qualified building inspectors) of your property and provide an estimate of the renovation works carried out so it can be claimed in your depreciation report.
Listed are some of the common changes made to properties but if there are others please add.
