This seminar explains when it is appropriate to include a building surveyor in a claim. A key part of this is understanding where a building surveyor's statutory responsibility sits under the Building Act 2016. De-identified examples will demonstrate when a building surveyor should not be included in a claim. Key takeaways from this seminar are – Building surveyors are registering claims made against them, against their Professional Indemnity insurance for events outside their statutory area of responsibility, which is contributing to higher premiums; Building surveyors cannot be held liable for work outside their statutory area of responsibility under the Building Act 2016; and This includes certifying work that is not regulated by the National Construction Code.
