A defect report is also known as a building completion report or warranty report. As an owner builder, you need this report before you can sell the property. It makes sure that Australian Building Codes have been met and the house can be safely occupied. With this report, you can also get insurance policies and Owner Builder Warranty Insurance which protects you from liability and damages after selling.
A defect report is different to a standard property report because it is specific to new properties. As well as structural and safety issues, it covers cosmetic defects like sloppy paint jobs and scratches on fixtures.
