Not All Building Inspectors Are The Same!

Did You Know?

  • A builder with little or no experience can complete a two day course and be qualified to carry out building inspections!
  • Employees working for companies do not have to be licensed and covered by insurance
  • Building inspectors – in some circumstances – are not obliged to carry professional indemnity insurance for building inspections
  • Having a builder’s licence, also being a member of the Master Builders Association and/or Institute of Building Consultants on their own are not sufficient qualifications for an individual or company to carry out building inspections

Don’t take my word for the above, do your own checking with the QBCC for clarification; you won’t like the results!
