You may have seen in the news recently that Tim Mander (The Minister for Housing and Public Works in QLD) announced that the QLD Government is planning to undertake a major review of the building certification industry. Concerns were apparently uncovered during a compliance audit in Mackay, where over a hundred properties failed to meet acceptable framing requirements. Given the amount of building currently going on all along the Sunshine Coast and the fact that the construction industry employs so many people here in Queensland, it seems like a closer look at the entire certification system would be a great idea.
While we wait for the outcome of this review, people who continue to invest their earnings into a property must be able to access a level of comfort and confidence in the certification process to help ensure the home they are building or buying complies with the recognised building standards. Engaging a highly qualified, accredited building inspector seems a great place to start!
So whether you need an inspection for identifying faults, maintenance issues, or for the purpose of preparing a defects report, contact a QBCC licensed building inspector for the full range of inspection services available to you. That way you’ll not only have someone competent conducting the inspection but also have a reliable professional on hand to explain the condition of the property and the consequences of any issues raised in their report e.g. the repair costs.
