In order for your claim to be favourable in your interest you will need to provide evidence on your hearing date at the Tribunal to prove your claim. Hence a professional report from a building expert is required along with a Scott schedule which includes the costs to rectify all defective work found. A building expert from EBC can also be present on the day of your hearing, as further information from the building expert may be required to help prove your claim.

EBC highly recommend you carry out a professional building report along with a Scott schedule to help support your claim and also to have a building expert present on the day of your hearing.

What is a Scott Schedule?
A Scott Schedule is a form which allows parties to itemise defective and incomplete works which are the subject of a home building dispute. They are generally used in complex home building matters and/or where there are a number of defects.
