Building Inspection Changes in NSW
In September 2009 there was some information released by the NSW Department of Fair Trading about Building Consultant Licensing that effects Building Inspectors in Sydney – the following information is from their website. Effective 16 September 2009, building consultancy work is no longer regulated under the Home Building Act in NSW. This means that building consultancy work is no longer licensed by Fair Trading. What does this mean to YOU?
It means when you are ordering a Property Inspection you need to be very careful about who you are hiring – ensure they are fully qualified and fully insured. Building Inspectors should be fully qualified Builders – holding a current builders license. You can confirm this by asking for the Builders qualifications.
They should also have Professional Indemnity Insurance (there are a lot of rogue traders out therewithout insurance - so make sure you ask this question of every Inspector). To find out more just visit the Department of Fair Trading Building Consultancy website.
Remember this report is purchased by you it should be used for you and your Solicitor/Conveyancer. You should NEVER give a copy of your report to a real estate Agent or Vendor. If negotiating with an Agent over something within your report and they ask for a copy of your report always decline print and give 1 or 2 pages of major defects not the whole report. By giving your report out can also compromise your purchase. Even if you choose not to proceed with the sale it is your report do not give it away.
