Two important roles you will need during your build process
Two roles blog

If your list of New Year’s resolutions begins with ‘become a homeowner’, then congratulations! Buying or building a new home is a big step, it’s true, but it’s also a super exciting one. To help ensure you start off on the right foot, take a moment to consider these important points.

When building, who do you need to help you along the way?

When you’re building your new home, it may feel as if there are countless roles you need to know about. Two of the most important are the building inspector and the conveyancer.

Here we outline each one’s role and why they’re important.

What is a building inspector?

A building inspector diligently reviews your new home before you move in to ensure it meets the building standard requirements of your council and the NSW Government. The building inspector checks everything from the fire safety of your home through to ticking off minor details such as fencing and security screens for your Final Occupational Certificate. If you build with Eden Brae, our homes are independently inspected by Tyrrells Property Inspections, who’ve been in the business for over forty years.

What is a conveyancer?

A conveyancer specialises in the legal transfer of property from one entity to another, like Eden Brae to you! They can be a lawyer or have professional conveyancing qualifications.

Your conveyancer is responsible for making sure that you meet all the legal obligations for your purchase.

This involves your conveyancer preparing all the documents needed for the legal transfer of the land from Eden Brae to you, as well as managing the transfer.

Your conveyancer will also conduct ‘searches’ to make sure that Eden Brae is the legal owner, that there are no debts or liabilities on the property, if the local council or NSW Government has any plans to develop the area, the risk of events such as bushfires or floods, and that the property is structurally sound.

When do you engage either a conveyancer or building inspector?

Eden Brae’s Buildsure Guarantee and Procedure of Purchase ensures that at the practical completion stage of your home build, your new home is independently inspected. Only Eden Brae Homes has all of its homes independently inspected. We entrust Tyrrells Property Inspections with this important task. Tyrrells is a highly trusted company that’s been inspecting buildings for 40 years.

Conveyancers are used at the end of the home build process, when Eden Brae is ready to transfer the deed of your new property to you. At this point, your conveyancer double and triple checks that all the paperwork is up to scratch. Moreover, you’ll need a conveyancer if you ever consider selling your house.

Who organises these jobs, you or your builder?

Eden Brae Homes organises independent building inspections for its new homes by Tyrrells Property Inspections. Tyrrells report to you, the new home owner, so you can be confident that your new home meets all the required standards.
