Building Inspection Certificate (B.I.C.) offer a "homeworthy" inspection and compliance service for the seller of a property.
There are no upfront costs, all fees are paid on settlement.
As a seller, do you think it would be worthwhile to gain a "homeworthy", knowing your property is ready for sale, allowing you to maximise your return and giving the buyer confidence in the property?
As a buyer, would you be more confident to buy a property where there were no hidden unknowns as the inspections had already been undertaken?

I think that even if a homeowner provided this certificate, I would still arrange my own inspections. As a buyer, you normally don't know the owner and don't know if they got the certificate legitmately or not, you are taking that chance if you don't get your own inspection done. Just my opinion though.

That is correct a "Building Inspection Report" by anyone without a "Structural certificate" by a qualified engineer will not pass the litmus test (in disputes...fit for purpose) on acceptability by the courts, councils, insurances, and commissions.

How would a buyer ever trust some certificate given from some obscure company contracted by the vendor?
While it would be nice if there could be a system where each potential buyer didn't need to get their own inspection, unless the conflict of interest can be resolved, it just doesn't work.
