Exemptions from BCAR SI365 inspection requirements

The Minsiter, in his wisdom, has introduced new legislation (SI365) for one off house builders offering volentary exemption from inspections on a singlre dwelling. In the short term this may appear to be a useful saving for the self builder and those considering building their own house, however the long term implications of this legislation remain unclear.

A non certified house may attract higher insurance premiums, be more difficult to sell and may in fact be worth less than one which is certified. It will certainly be harder to sell.
