Sanction Expiry: 27 July 2022
Disciplinary Hearing: 30 June 2021
A disciplinary hearing was held following a complaint lodged with CICAIR against MD Warranty Support Services Limited (trading as Premier Guarantee Surveyors), Approved Inspector #22.
The disciplinary panel upheld two breaches of the CICAIR Code of Conduct for Approved Inspectors (June 2011).
Failure to comply with clause 2.1.1 of the Code of Conduct (June 2011)
Clause 2.1.1 imposes the following obligation on an Approved Inspector:
An Approved Inspector has a legal duty to comply with any current statutes or statutory provisions which are applicable to the functions of Approved Inspectors.
Failure to comply with clause 2.2.1 of the Code of Conduct (June 2011)
Clause 2.2.1 imposes the following obligation on an Approved Inspector:
Approved Inspectors shall carry out their duties with due skill, care and diligence and shall act with integrity in and for the interests of the Client for whom they act, maintaining confidentiality at all times, subject to the obligations under paragraph 2.1.1 above.
In accordance with the CICAIR Sanctions Guidance, the disciplinary panel determined the appropriate sanction was a Level 2 – Serious Breach, a formal reprimand recorded on file and the publication of the sanction on the CICAIR website for a period of 12 months.
This sanction does not prevent MD Warranty Support Services Limited (trading as Premier Guarantee Surveyors) from continuing to practice as an Approved Inspector.
