Leaky Home Owner Wins $524k Claim Against Housing Inspector – What You Need To Know | Ep. 1358

About this episode

In this episode, we discuss how one leaky homeowner won over half a million dollars from her former building inspector.

This homeowner thought she was doing the right thing. She was given a building report from the real estate agent and even called the building inspector to make sure the home wasn't leaky.

When she moved in, she quickly realised ... it was.

She took the building inspector to court and won!

The most interesting part – she wasn't even the building inspector's client. She didn't pay them a cent.

This is a fascinating case study as it turns some of our traditional advice on its head.

This is a must-listen for first-home buyers, homeowners and property investors. Through this, you'll learn whether you need to hire a building inspection company (or whether you can now rely on one given by a real estate agent).

You'll also learn what you need to look out for when buying existing properties.
