Fences Safety & Public Liability
Building Reports not only cover the condition of the property but also place a liability on the inspector in relation to safety. One of the major safety issues encountered are fences. Failure to maintain fences can result in damage to adjoining property, serious injury or loss of life. Coastal Home & Building Inspections recognise the importance of checking fences for stability and safety providing reasonable access is provided. Safety issues identified in building reports require immediate attention such as the case with the brick fence in the photo which is leaning excessively towards a common general public area.
