Owner Builder / Home Warranty Inspection

A Home Warranty Inspection or Owner Builder Inspection is carried out as a final check of works completed by an owner builder as a requirement of home warranty insurance cover. The inspection is to ensure there are no incomplete works or major defects.

Home warranty insurance provides a set period of cover for loss caused by defective or incomplete work in the event of the death, disappearance or insolvency of the contractor/builder/owner-builder.

From 1 February 2012, home warranty insurance is required to be obtained where the contract price (or value of work) is over $20,000.

We carry out home warranty inspections / Owner Builder Inspections for bathroom renovations, kitchen renovations, additions, extensions, alterations, new homes, subdivisions, duplexes, dual occupancies, units and villa developments.

Once the inspection has been carried out, we compile a Home Warranty inspection report or Owner Builder Warranty Report for you to submit to your insurer.

You can visit the Department of Fair Trading NSW website for more information around the Owner Builder Home warranty Insurance requirements.
