Dodgy Canberra Report

Recently we got a building report provided by the sellers to us prior to purchase of a property  in Isaacs. The report provided was dodgy, generalized ,full of disclaimers, and  lacked details.  In our opinion, it was a useless document. We are required to pay for this report by current ACT law , if we decide to buy the property.

On advise from our Solicitor , we asked Surety Property to provide an independent report on the condition of the property. On behalf of Surety Property, Mr Brenden Trevaskis promptly carried out inspection on 17 th June 2014 and gave us a detailed report on 18th June 2014.

The report provided identified serious problems with the fence, roof, gutter, dampness, water leaks, defective drainage, wall cracks, damaged air conditioning duct insulation etc. The report greatly helped us in negotiating additional price reduction to rectify the defects noted.

We wish to express  our sincere appreciation for a excellent report provided by the Company. The Building Consultant was prompt ,thorough and described the issues in detail with photographs to identify the problems.

When I contacted a number of Building and Pest inspection companies for quotes, I was given a price for both. When I contacted Surety I was given a clear understanding of what I would receive during the inspection and after. Therefore I had a good understanding of what was going to take place.

I gave Surety the go ahead and from there everything was carried out in a very timely manner. The reports were very informative and spelled out all details of what would needed to be repaired and fixed. Bruce carried out the Inspections and gave a very detailed verbal report. 

Thank you Surety for your great service.” Phil Grinham, Sth Coast buyer

“I was impressed with how promptly Surety was able to inspect our prospective home. I phoned you on Monday, you conducted the inspection on Wednesday and gave me your report on Thursday. I also appreciated your courtesy call of Wednesday afternoon to advise me of the outcome of the inspection. I would highly recommend your services.”
