Frequently Asked Questions
A building inspection is a report that provides advice on the physical condition of any given building. The report is independent and therefore helps individuals make informed decisions, most commonly around buying a property or not.
These reports only report a specific moment in time, therefore it’s important to make sure any report you use is up to date and accurately reflects the property it is associated with.
A key reason people obtain building inspection reports is for risk management purposes. Building Inspection reports can assist with insurance claims, dispute resolution, legal compliance and regulations that aid to inform around extension and renovation decisions.
