Client Agreement

Thank you for requesting "ybi" to do an Inspection on your behalf at the nominated address.

The Australian Standard that governs Inspections, strongly recommends that to protect both you (the Client) and the Inspector from any misunderstanding, that an Inspection Agreement be made, prior to the Inspection.

An Inspector will inspect and report on your nominated property in accordance with AS4349.0-2007 and AS4349.1-2007 for the building report. Please be aware that a Building Report is NOT a Timber Pest Report, Electrical Report, Plumbing Report, Pool Report, Cost Estimate Report, Compliance Certificate or a Guarantee against future problems from developing. A separate inspection agreement needs to be entered into for the request of a pest inspection to be performed in accordance with AS4349.3.  

The purpose of the inspection is to provide advice to you the Client, regarding the condition of the property at the date and time of inspection. Areas for the visual, non- invasive Inspection shall cover all safe and accessible areas and include the Roof, Roof Void, Sub-Floor Void, Interior, Exterior and the Site within 30 metres and within the boundaries of the main building to be inspected.

Your responsibility is to pay for the service that your Inspector provides. In addition we strongly recommend that upon receipt of your report, that you read the report carefully and heed all recommendations made by the Inspector. We also recommend you call the Inspector to clarify anything that you don't understand.
