Defect Report

Besafe Property Inspections provides homeowners and buyers in Sydney with a professional building defect repor . This is a report that highlights defects within a property, that do not conform to the Building Code of Australia (BCA) or the National Construction Code (NCC).

Why request a building defect report

These reports are often requested by home owners, strata managers and commercial building investors for example, when they believe that construction work has been sub-standard or a building contract has been breached. The defects can be found in new build homes, renovated properties and additions or extensions.

Issues that may require investigation by a professional builder who is licensed to inspect for these type of defects include structural cracking, rising damp, sagging or leaking roofs, insulation problems, defective frames, movement in the walls or floors, and breakdown of the mortar holding the brickwork together.

A building defect report can be used to identify the existence and the cause of these defects, and presented as evidence to the builder who performed the work or to a court or a Tribunal.

Do you need a building defect report

The Home Owners Warranty usually lasts for six years, but under a range of circumstances, a builder or developer can still be held accountable for structural and other problems if they breach the initial building contracts.

Examples of these contractual breaches include, but are not limited to the following:

  • An omission to use suitable new materials and proper tradesmanship.
  • Breaches of the Australian Consumer Law.
  • Breaches of statutory warranties included in the building legislation.
  • Liability for negligence or misrepresentation.

A building defect report can also be used to investigate a specific problem that might have been deteriorating for some time or one you have just noticed.

“We had a few issues with our previous inspector and were looking for a new one. Fadi and I met at a local business group and from then on I have been using BeSafe Property Inspections. Initially I was impressed with Fadi’s credentials and his background in the building industry.”

David Winning

We were skeptical at first that we had been recommended an inspector that would provide a report suiting the vendors but his report was honest and thorough and let us know about all the defects of the property. He was happy to talk through any questions we had which made us feel much more comfortable about what we were reading. They were prompt and organised.

Fadi has completed 3 inspections for us and has given an informative reports and also took the time to assist with our concerns and took the time to explain. I can not praise Fadi enough. Fadi was available for a last minute inspection and it was worth every penny. Given the sellers report was not as detailed. Can not recommend Fadi enough... he is on our list of the must dos ,have when buying a house . I trust his opinion and his experience and knowledge has been invaluable.

Lidia Georges

I had a good experience with besafe. Lidia was extremely helpful, oraganised and polite. She planned out everything on the day and proceeded to the next steps. Fadi was very informative and passionate about his work. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

Paul Ali

Being a first home buyer is daunting enough without having to organise so many inspections etc etc. On calling Lidia she immediately put my mind at rest, talked me through the full process and within 4 days I had a full comprehensive (but understandable) report. Fadi called immediately after the inspection to talk me through the report. I would not hesitate to contact BeSafe Property Inspections

Kathleen Daziel

I am happy to recommend Besafe's property inspection service. Fadi was professional and diligent in preparing a clear and comprehensive report for me at fairly short notice. And Lidia was refreshingly organised, courteous and most importantly cognizant of my priorities both prior to and after completion of the inspection. A really nice team to deal with!

Jonathan Reso

Lydia was incredibly helpful. I needed an inspection done on a property I was making an offer on with very short notice. They were able to undertake the inspection the next day and provided me with the full report only hours after the inspection was completed. Highly recommended.

Danielle McGuinness

From coordinating the inspection to the quality of the report and everything in between was nothing short of impeccable. If I'm ever in the fortunate position to purchase a house again I would only ever go to Besafe for the building and pest inspection. Highly recommended.
