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 […]

Canberra Sellers Hide the Truth

The building inspection company said the O’Connor property, on the market for $1.2 million, was perfect—not one negative comment. Ironically this made Paul Kuske think twice. Even though the property had recently undergone major renovations, it was still built in the 1960’s. ‘How could it be perfect,’ asked Paul?  Read the full story ACT Buyer – […]

“You saved us buying a dud home with more issues that we would expect from a new build. You have opened our eyes and armed us with more knowledge for the future. Thank you!”

Glen, ACT Buyer

“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.”
