What a compliance Inspection involves

A compliance inspection and report makes it hard for problems with the property to be passed on to you, and is highly recommended if you want to be sure whether you are getting the property you thought you were buying.

Remember that any unapproved structures may not be covered by home and contents insurance, so make sure you don’t get caught out.

On your behalf we seek the approval of the current owner to access the council‘s building file. We then visit the property and council and report what has and has not been approved.

In the compliance audit we look for issues like whether the;

  • garage converted to a handy office has been approved as a change of structure
  • four-bedrooms listed are approved or whether you’re really only buying a three-bedroom home that is not worth nearly as much
  • shed at the back of the property is ‘legal’
  • granny flat attached to the house, which you intend to rent to help pay the mortgage, is authorised.

The compliance inspection is part of The Works package which includes a building inspection, pest inspection and compliance audit.

“My first contact with Surety Property Reports was when we were selling our country property. Surety was the company hired by the purchaser. We were so impressed by the thoroughness we decided when we purchase a property we would use their service. We did and could not be more pleased. The report was very well written. This company was reliable and if they were running late would ring and let you know. We found them to be honest with the quote. Old fashioned service at its best. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”

Di Whiting, Sth Coast buyer

“Thanks for the report and great service from you guys.  And as I said on the phone, I particularly want to thank Surety.  The team was really knowledgeable, thorough, thoughtful, and a lovely as well. It is also a great load off my mind to know I don’t have termites!”
