INSPECTION SERVICES

The recent changes to the real estate agents Code of Conduct require agents who become aware of possible defects in a property they are selling, to warn the seller and the buyer and advise them to seek independent advice from a suitably qualified expert.

If a seller tells an agent about a defect and asks them not to disclose it to a buyer, the agent must immediately stop working for them.

The issue of what constitutes a “potential defect” is making agents, home owners and buyers anxious. They are uncertain of their liabilities if they don’t spot a defect, and are concerned the new rules will lead to confusion and protracted delays while potential issues are investigated and resolved.

We believe the new clause doesn’t have to be a deal-breaker. It’s about ensuring agents, sellers and buyers all get the right advice from an expert who can help them find solutions, I know that some real estate agents are concerned they don’t have the experience to pick up defects. And sellers sometimes want to cover them up because they don’t understand how simple they may be to fix.”
