i have bought a property which is about to settle in 8 days.
no building inspection was done and none is being allowed by the seller at the final inspection which will be in 4 days.
the contract of sale did not contain a building permit for the extension done 5 years ago. The other issue is it didn’t contain a builders warranty insurance. My solicitor has requested this from the seller’s solicitor several times and nothing has been received to date.
So I don’t know who the builder was and now have doubts about the quality of the extension.
i have the right to rescind the contract since not providing the above is a clear breach of the Building Act.
is there any way to get a copy of the building permit or at least find out who the builder was without going through council? Council won’t give it to me as I am not listed as owner.
Thanks for any adviceHomeBuyerLouisianaParticipant@homebuyerlouisianaJoin Date: 2020Post Count: 0
