The Inspection is carried out to Australian Standards AS4349.1-07, Where Defects have been found and Reported on, it is up to the client to act on the Advice given in the Report and have Suitably Qualified Tradespersons attend to the defect/s to a Professional standard. Comments are made on many Issues, such as the Type of Fuses in the Mains Box & use an Electronic Wiring Tester for Plug Sockets, also comment on Leaking Taps & 'U' Bends, to name but two Trades, but I am not a Qualified Electrician or Plumber, and the Relevant Qualified Trades Person can carry out Tests beyond my Scope, using the same two Examples above, the Electrician can Detect Faulty Wiring that is not visible, the Plumber can carry out Pressure Tests to find Leaks in Pipes hidden in walls, that have not made any adverse impact on the wall or cladding.
