Six Questions To Ask Your Building Inspector

Six Questions To Ask Your Building Inspector

It is a little known fact that on 16th September 2009 building consultant/inspector licencing was deregulated and no longer requires licencing in N.S.W. This has opened the way to unscrupulous and inexperienced inspectors operating through out the state.

When choosing your inspector you should always ask the following questions.

  1. Their experience. How long have they been in the housing industry and in what capacity.
  2. Are they full time inspectors or just looking for work to fill their book next week.
  3. Is the report Australian Standard compliant.
  4. Can you view a sample report.
  5. Will the inspector be available to answer any questions you may have after you have read the report.
  6. And most importantly does the inspector hold professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance for the work they do. (for your protection and peace of mind.)

If the inspector can’t answer any of these questions then choose somebody else. In order to be able to make an informed decision on purchasing a property or not you need to know that you are getting the best possible advise available to you.

Well, asking questions to your inspector sometimes not instead you can check the reviews for the particular property or building inspection agency and then you can simply check on the points above in a formal way.

We have just moved to NSW and had no idea that the industry had been deregulated...that's nuts! Thank goodness I found out this info before we have bought otherwise it could have ended up to be very costly. Thank you Eddie! Leisa

Solely relying on these questions can still be not enough. Researching about the building inspector's track record could add help. Of course, you don't believe everything that's posted online. Who knows, negative comments may come from the building inspector's competitors or someone who really had a bad experience with the building inspector? Doing some research will also give you the advantage of having several options who can give you the best bang for your buck.

If the building inspector could provide a written and signed copy of these questions and the inspector's answer, including insurance; plus the research you did; that's already a good vantage point of where you're heading at with the building inspection company you hired.
