Archicentre Chief Executive Mark Stewart said, "the opening of the 24/7 booking service provides lawyers and conveyancing companies especially with a quick and easy way to book a property inspection with a guarantee of professionally trained registered architects to carry out the inspections."
Mr Stewart said that most people are surprised to learn that in all Australian States and Territories, other than Queensland, literally anyone can do a property or termite inspection, without the need for any qualifications, experience, insurance or even pest or building fault knowledge.
