ybi Client Agreement/s

The Australian Standard/s that govern inspections and industry bodies recommend that to protect You (the Client and/or Your nominated party acting on your behalf) and the Inspector from any misunderstanding, that Inspection Agreements be made available for viewing, prior to an inspection being carried out.

The purpose of an agreement is to outline to the Client the Inspectors terms, conditions, scope and limitations of the inspection and report. The Client is requested to read and acknowledge understanding of and agree to this / these documents and further authorises the Inspector to proceed with the inspection/s and report/s as requested.

Our Inspector will inspect and report on Your nominated property in accordance with the appropriate Australian Standards AS4349.0-2007, AS4349.1-2007 and/or AS4349.3-2010 where required. 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 the inspection. Areas for the visual, non-invasive inspection shall cover 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.
