As an owner, building defects can cause emotional stress. And they can lead to legal disputes.
It’s important to seek independent advice on building defects from an impartial professional who can help you save time, money and legal hassles.
Surety provides advice on a wide range of building defect issues. Indeed, we’re the only firm of our type in our area of operation that has a building consultant accredited with the Master Builders Association who specialises in defect and expert witness reports.
Our expert inspectors examine all types of defects, including those that have:
- appeared but have not yet got progressively worse (for example, a roof leak)
- been caused by the quality of workmanship of a builder or tradesman (for example, renovations or improvements)
- started to proceed to a tribunal for mediation.
Surety provides two levels of building defect service. We provide an onsite inspection and then you choose whether you want to:
- simply discuss our findings with you onsite
- have us write a formal report on findings.
Professionalism you can count on
Surety is a member of the Master Builders Association and the Housing Industry Association. We’re fully insured (including professional indemnity insurance).
