Changes to The Inspection Service Industry in Sydney NSW
There have been changes to NSW laws about building inspections. In September 2009 there was some information released by the Department of Fair Trading regarding Building Consultant licensing that effects building inspectors in Sydney. Effective 16 September 2009, building consultancy work is no longer regulated under the Home Building Act in NSW.
THE NSW Government removed the compulsory licensing for building inspectors.

This means that you could be engaging an inexperienced and uninsured building inspector to make decisions on your financial future.
What does this mean?
It means when you are ordering a Building Inspection you need to be very careful about who you are hiring – ensure they are fully qualified and fully insured. Building Inspectors should be fully qualified and licensed builders
