Disciplinary action against Rangeview Estate building surveyor
Tuesday, 13 June 2017
Today the VBA announced that it had taken disciplinary action against Mr Peter Eyers.
The VBA has imposed a stringent condition on Mr Eyers' Building Surveyor Licence that significantly restricts his ability to practice. This condition is that he may not issue any new Building Permits which involve buildings which are attached until he provides the VBA with evidence that he has obtained a Graduate Certificate in Performance Based Building and Fire Codes from Victoria University of Technology (or a qualification that the VBA considers is equivalent).
As an additional measure to protect consumers, the VBA also requires Mr Eyers to provide updated checklists and processes for all work he may carry out in the future across all different classes of buildings and in particular, properties that share a wall such as townhouses or apartments.
While the primary responsibility and culpability for the defective and non-compliant work in this matter was largely with the builder, David Brayer, the VBA considered Mr Eyers' breaches of the Building Act were serious enough to warrant further discipline and imposed fines totalling $25,500.00.
