limited in their use. The purpose of an EQC building assessment is to
record the natural disaster damage which has occurred to residential
buildings (as defined in the EQC Act).
EQC uses this assessment to create a Scope of Works that details the
strategy for repairing the natural disaster damage (only) and the
estimated cost of that repair. They are not a substitute for a
pre-purchase inspection, and should not be solely relied on by home buyers
when doing thorough due diligence as part of a potential property
