Are you an owner builder planning to sell your recently built or renovated home? You may need Home Warranty Insurance before you sell.

In some states, a builder is required to provide Home Warranty Insurance to the property owner prior to entering into a building contract, to protect the owner against incomplete or defective work. The same obligations may apply to an owner builder -regulations vary by state, so check with your state building authority.

To obtain Home Warranty Insurance you may first need to have an Inspection and report on the new works. Speed up the sales process with our Home Warranty Inspection.

Our architect will inspect and assess the new works, providing a detailed report on workmanship, defects and any incomplete works to assist you in meeting your statutory obligations.

Our Construction Quality Assurance Inspection Report is a visual assessment of the quality and workmanship of the property’s construction against acceptable industry standards.

Using the builder’s construction contract? How can you be sure of the standard of quality and workmanship? Don’t just rely on your builder’s say so. Building a home is an extremely complex project. So when you engage a builder you need to be absolutely sure that your interests are protected. How many stories have you heard where this has not occurred?

Check each stage of your building project with an independently assessed Construction Quality Assurance inspection before you pay your builder, for peace of mind!

Our Construction Quality Assurance Inspection will check if your building works comply with applicable quality standards. It provides you with a written report and is available for each stage of the building process.

A Construction Quality Assurance Inspection identifies

  • Observed building defects;
  • Observed area or items of poor quality workmanship.

Avoid costly building disputes, potential mediation and financial distress by having a recognised independent expert inspect the progress and quality of your building project before you pay your builder.

It does not matter whether your project is big or small; if you enter into a contract you need to protect your interests with independent expert advice. If this expert is missing from your project Ask an Architect can assist.

Dilapidation Survey

Our Dilapidation Survey Report is a special purpose property inspection report undertaken to provide a visual assessment of the structural and cosmetic fabric defects, which are or may be related to movement of the structure or fabric, of the subject property evident on the day of the inspection prior to the commencement of neighbouring construction works.

If nearby construction works cause damage to your home or property, would you be able to prove it in court?

Building work such as new home construction and renovations (particularly along boundaries), road works, infrastructure projects or demolitions can easily cause building defects in nearby properties if the proper precautions aren’t taken. Cracked brickwork or paving, broken fences, water ingress or damage to landscaping can all result in costly repairs, but how can you prove that the neighbouring building work has done the damage?

Protect yourself from damage repair costs with a Dilapidation Survey. Our expert architect will assess the condition of your property before works commence and compile a photographic record of any pre-existing defects. If you notice damage to your property after the work starts, your Dilapidation Survey can help you get the damage rectified or support a claim for costs to repair if needs be.

A detailed report by an independent architect can help you avoid lengthy arguments and expensive repairs coming out of your pocket.

Dilapidation Survey benefits

  • An inspection of the building and property by an independent architect undertaken before the start of nearby construction work.
  • A comprehensive report recording pre-existing defects so that any new ones can easily identified.
