Building A New House
Feb 23, 2019 4:58 pm
I am building single store 24 square house in Melbourne’s western suburbs. My builder cannot prepare the contract until I don’t finalise the building surveyor. He emailed me the nomination form to fill out yesterday and he wants me to sign as soon as possible. He said the surveyor office is good, he has done few big jobs.
I need a suggestion, should I get my own building surveyor or should I go with the builder’s recommended one? I don’t know how much building surveyor charge. If you think I should hire my own then can you please share contacts.

The builder pays a surveyor to certify the builders work for all his builds.
As this surveyor gets regular work from the builder who do you think he will be looking after?
If you want someone looking after your interests you should get an independent surveyor.
Sorry no contacts as I have enough experience I have been able to do the checking myself for my builds.

I would type in surveyor on this forum and Google also, then talk to some from there, would stay away from anyone doing lots of volume builders work and look for a independent guy with good fussy efics.

Where they organised by you/your bank or the builder? Normally the one the builder has is already paid by you in the contract, but the bank will charge you for their own…
