In New Zealand, unlike USA or Canada for example, there is no legal requirement for a building inspect or to be qualified as a building inspector or for them to have professional indemnity insurance.
Many people mistakenly think a qualified builder is therefore a qualified home inspector. A builder is not normally qualified as a plumber, an electrician, a roofer, a heating and ventilation engineer or as a home inspector. A qualified house inspector is qualified as a house inspector which is a specialised profession and not as a builder or other trade.
Their purpose is to be qualified, trained, skilled and experienced at inspecting all components of a house / building and identifying any problems.
