Why you should always order your own Independent Building & Pest Reports? Local property conveyancing company, Conveyancing Headquarters, provides some great advice for In the Cove followers, in this guest blog post.
We received an email from a Building & Pest inspection company recently who made the point that we make to clients all the time ORDER YOUR OWN INDEPENDENT BUILDING & PEST REPORTS!
While it can be convenient and cost effective to accept a building & pest report from the vendor or agent, there is always a risk that the report is not ‘at arm’s length’. If there is an error with the report and in the future you want to claim against the inspector, you may not be able to because there was no commercial relationship between you and the inspector and you did not engage the inspector to conduct the reports. It is always prudent to obtain your own independent building & pest report.
We’ve linked a great article by Domain.com.au highlighting the issues.
Last year Conveyancing Headquarters received the very prestigious Australian Institute of Conveyancers NSW Award for Professionalism and Best Practice 2014
