Do Depreciation Survey before or after Repair?

Hi,
Just bought my investment property in Perth & rented it out.
Planning to get some works done around the house.
1) To replace gutter which have rusted throught
2) To replace swimming pool filtration system
3) To replace bath room tiles which have popped out when tenant moved in

Does it matter if I engage a quantity surrveyor to do a depreciation of the property before or after the above works have been carried out? Which will have more advantages from tax depreciation perspective?

Thanks to all reply. :)
 
I'm not a QS but I beleive you should engage Qs before you do repairs. There are some rules about claiming the value of items you've replaced that require you to prove the items existed.

I would agree with this. And then you have receipts for the new stuff that the accountant can add to the schedule without a QS report.
