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.

I have personally used Surety twice for my own properties and have always appreciated the great service. Surety is the only inspector that we would recommend.

“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.”
