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.
“Bruce’s report yesterday was very positive and comforting especially as I am remote from the property. The owner, assures me that not a single ant escaped detection.”
Phillip Stafford-Gaffney, Sth Coast buyer
“We recently had a buyer’s building survey done by Bruce and just wanted to express our thanks on his professionalism and great work. The report was very thorough and had picked out on defects that would have been costly to repair and not mentioned at all in the seller’s report. We have now worked out a half way figure with the vendor and that saved us a couple of thousands of dollars.
So thanks again and we will no doubt highly recommend Surety to our friends/colleagues after this.”
