If you are a home owner that has built under an owner builder permit, then you will need home warranty insurance for your peace of mind, or if you plan on selling within six years of building. Here is some more information about this.
A home owner warranty report is a report that is designed to outline all of the defects (structural or cosmetic) or incorrectly completed work in a property built by an owner builder so that the owner is able to get home warranty insurance. This insurance covers the first six years of a home built or extensively renovated by an owner builder so that they are protected on major works that cost more than $12,000. If the home is sold in the first six years, the insurance will transfer to the new owner for the remaining period of the six years (for example, if you live in the home for four years and sell it, the new owner will be covered for the remaining two years).
Essentially, the home owner warranty report provides the information that the insurer needs in order to cover the home. The report is usually valid for six months. If the defects found in the report are not addressed within the six months, the insurance will not include the defects.
In order to gain the insurance, the home owners warranty report needs to be carried out by a licensed and insured inspector. This could be a building inspector or consultant. The report should be written in clear, easy to understand language and cover all accessible areas of the building.
