Building Defect Assessment

It’s frustrating when your property has a problem and you’re not sure what to do about it. You can waste a lot of time worrying about how expensive it may be to fix and what the best way to have it resolved might be.

We can help by assessing the problem and providing recommendations so you know what you’re dealing with.

Most defects we assess are a result of storm damage, botched renovations or general wear and tear.

Storm damage

While your insurance should cover storm damage your insurer may question the extent of your claim. We can provide an independent report that you can use in the claims process to substantiate the damage.

Renovations

It can be tricky when you believe your builder needs to resolve an issue with the renovation but they are denying responsibility. We can provide an independent building defect report that you can take to your builder to more formally request rectification.

Wear and tear

Tradespeople are great to call on when you need to have something fixed, but knowing which trade you need and the extent of the problem before you do could save you a lot of money.  Because we don’t have a vested interest in fixing the issue we can give you expert and independent advice on how best to tackle it.

When one of our fully qualified team assesses your property’s defect you get;

  • A thorough onsite assessment of the building defect(s) in question
  • A detailed report and recommendations on what we find
  • Full photographic evidence
  • The use of Thermal Imaging equipment (if applicable)
  • Phone/email support if you need to ask follow up questions

The Surety team are qualified in Building Construction Certificate IV, accredited assessors, members of the Master Builders Association and members of the Housing Industry Association so you can be assured you will receive reliable and accurate advice.

Stop worrying and get the facts.

“The vendor of the property Brendan inspected is a returned serviceman and as such struggles with anxiety and other mental health issues. I was absolutely impressed at how Brendan handled a very anxious and difficult vendor and put him at ease by talking to him about the defence force and just generally being kind and mindful with him. It is really nice to see people who care about other people, not just “doing their job” and moving on.

Please pass on my thanks, I really do appreciate Brendan’s manner in what has been a difficult transaction with this vendor.”

South Coast, Real Estate Agent

“Thank you again for everything you’ve done to help us, and for your understanding and patience with the constant rescheduling. And a big thank you to Brendan for taking the time to explain everything to us – I honestly could’ve listened to him all day long!
When I started looking for a property inspection company, I asked everyone I could think of, then went on Google and did some homework. We narrowed it down to three companies, and I called you first because 1.) you had the best reviews and 2.) the sample report was very impressive.

That first conversation I had with you set the standard for the rest of the bunch. You took the time to listen and discuss what we were looking for and what our concerns were, which no one else did. In fact, I only rang one other company and quickly decided I wasn’t even going to waste my time ringing the third as I’d already made up my mind.

In terms of price, while Surety charges more than others, I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for. The inspection and report were absolutely worth every dollar (and probably more). Brendan picked up on issues we never even thought of, and not only detailed them with photos, but got our builder to agree to fix them with no argument. That was particularly impressive, especially considering the builder. And the report – no one else puts that level of effort into their reports. Surety’s reports should be an industry standard.

Again, thank you so very much for everything, and we wish you and Brendan all the best. Next time we buy (not build, learned that lesson), we’re coming straight to Surety again, absolutely no question about that.”
