- CPD Points: 2 [E] [PM]
This seminar will explain 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 PII claim.
Jarrod Meehan, Manager, Building Standards and Regulation, Consumer, Building and Occupational Services (CBOS), lists the three key takeaways from this seminar as:
- 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.
- This includes certifying work that is not regulated by the National Construction Code.
