Building Inspector Qualifications
Building inspector qualifications. It is always advised that the building inspector engaged to undertake a pre purchase or new construction building inspection, is suitably qualified. They should also be a builder registered with the West Australian building commission.
There are many franchised building inspection companies that operate in Perth. These companies can be found on the first page of Google. However many have franchisee inspectors that are not registered builders.
This presents an array of potential liability issues. Because the building inspection industry is unregulated throughout much of Australia it is highly recommended that client’s always ask for a registered builder to undertake their inspection.
Therefore, the client can have peace of mind knowing that the building report is being undertaken by an experienced professional.
Having an inexperienced building inspector is a recipe for disaster. It takes years of experience with building houses to understand and determine faults. Having a year or two’s experience is simply inadequate.
It is also highly recommended that the building inspector has adequate insurance in place. Public liability and professional indemnity insurance’s are a must when it comes to inspecting property.
