What a compliance Inspection involves

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.

More information is available here.

“Thoroughly professional report. The compliance report was certainly worth the additional money. Greg, Buyer Queanbeyan”

“The council search was a really great extra service and something I wasn’t expecting as part of a building inspection. It turned up a few issues but enabled us to make an informed risk based decision, without having to do a full survey and building certificate at much greater expense. Andrew, Buyer, South Coast”

“Having purchased a number of properties in the past, we were a bit sceptical about the value of a building report. We used Surety recently when we were purchasing a property and were pleasantly surprised. Whilst the report identified a couple of issues, we really liked the property, and the report gave us an opportunity to negotiate a more realistic price.”

Peter and Jayne Silverstone, Sth Coast buyer

Jacqui and Grant were fantastic – professional, reassuring and really took the time to make sure I understood the report/what services Surety could provide. They made a stressful time much less intimidating!
