All Realsure Inspectors are
Accredited Building Surveyors
Did you know that there is a NZ Standard for Property Inspections NZS4306:2005? Compliance is not compulsory.
A Consumer New Zealand investigation released in August 2006 found the property inspection industry had not really improved much, if at all, and a call went out for improvement. With the Department of Building and Housing suggesting a self-regulatory body for the industry, a special interest group found the Building Officials Institute of New Zealand (BOINZ) able and ready to take up the baton. In 2007 The BOINZ Accredited Building Surveyors programme was launched.
The Accreditation Programme’s purpose is to regulate and educate a poorly performing house inspection industry and protect the consumer from making property decisions based on sub-standard information. It is committed to building consumer confidence and awareness of the importance of quality Building Surveyor work being undertaken within New Zealand; and to strengthen and enhance the property inspection profession.
Accreditation is not a membership, rather it is a process whereby the accredited individual establishes and demonstrates that they are compliant with the Inspection Standard (NZS4306:2005) and have the knowledge, ethics and experience to undertake property inspections. Consequently, the title of house inspector is replaced with Accredited Building Surveyor.
Obtaining accreditation demonstrates the building surveyor’s commitment to the highest standard of work ethic and competency and a dedication to ongoing professional improvement that lifts the profile and image of Building Surveyors in New Zealand.
Home buyers, sellers, real estate agents, lenders, solicitors, and other professionals aware of the disparities within the inspection sector recognise the value in working with an Accredited Building Surveyor, an Industry assessed property inspection expert.
Accreditation sets the Surveyor apart in an otherwise unregulated property inspection sector. All Realsure inspectors are Accredited Building Surveyors
