Building reports can range significantly in quality, price and the experience of those creating them. Risknet reviews a lot of creative building reports, many unfortunately from businesses that should know better.
Floor levels have become a talking point, mainly due to Risknet leading the market in this space.
‘Spot levels’ are not actually a thing.
Spot levels are not recognized by anyone in the profession of producing Floor levels surveys, nor recognized by industry professionals within the Insurance sector.
If you have received a report with the words “spot levels” the only thing that you can be assured of is that the report is incomplete and therefore unreliable.
I am asked to review the work of others and find a disturbing amount of these reports are substandard, being incomplete and therefore misleading.
Why it matters
Example, St Albans, March 2021.
The current owner paid $800.00 for a building inspection in 2015.
The building report they received stated the floor levels were under 45mm. Risknet was asked to complete a comprehensive Floor Level Survey, and found the variance across the floor was actually 132mm. Yes, you read correctly 132mm, which is a difference of 87mm.
The difference of 87mm is the difference between a good house and the perception of a broken house that requires a foundation replacement.
Risknet Floor Level Surveys and Building reports are accurate, reliable and the best way to determine fact from fiction.
