FAQ

Do Any Properties "Fail" Inspection?

No. The idea of a property inspection is never to pass or fail a property. The process is conducted to describe a property's physical condition and find any improvements or repairs that could be made. It is not like a council inspection or market value appraisal.

However, if the inspection is for a Critical Stage Inspection for a Construction Project or a Swimming Pool Inspection in these circumstances a determination of compliance or non-compliance will be made.

Who can carry out Inspections on Buildings under construction and Pools?

In NSW only persons accredited with the NSW Building Professionals Board (BPB) can legally carry out Critical Stage Inspections on projects under construction and Swimming Pools.

New laws now apply in NSW which effect the buying, selling and leasing of properties with a pool. These laws were enacted to assist in the protection of children with regards to pool related incidents.

To comply with these new laws, certain certification MUST be obtained from council in your LGA or a private certifier who are authorised to issue swimming pool certificates of compliance. Our inspectors in NSW are authorised to conduct pool safety inspections and able to assist you in meeting your compliance needs.

The same with Critical Stage Inspections and Reports of projects under construction, they only have legal binding if carried out by an Accredited Certifier.
