Litigation / NCAT Reports

What We Do
Our NCAT (NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal) Expert Witness Reports provide our impartial expert opinion on the building defect issues and are presented in the structure/format required for submission to the submissions to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

We record our observations and ‘findings’ in the Special Purpose Building Report

Following our building inspection and investigation, we record our observations and ‘findings’ in the special purpose building report, together with a photographic record of the defects, followed by discussion/diagnosis and recommendations/conclusions detailing our opinion on the suitable and cost effective repairs.

Our special purpose building reports are customised to a level of detail which suits our Clients’ individual requirements. This ensures that we deliver quality, cost-effective reports which are specifically suited to the purpose for which they will be used.

Our Litigation NCAT Building Reports

Our Litigation / NCAT Building Reports are similar and are in the format required by the Lawyer

Typically utilising a Scott Schedule to itemise the defect items, our reports detail our opinion on the cause, their areas of non-compliance with the Building Code of Australia, Australian Standards and published acceptable standards and tolerances, a scope of remedial works and photos corroborating the defect item.
Also, in order to corroborate specific items in your case such as water ingress issues, it may be beneficial to carry out some water testing or ‘invasive’ testing and/or exploratory works to investigate the underlying building elements and substantiate their causes and to determine remedial works. We can arrange for this work to be carried out.
