Depreciation Reports

Russell Cass from Home Check was here this morning to give us a better insight on depreciation reports. Some of the points Russell made were:

A depreciation report is nothing more than a home inspection with a maintenance budget.
A report is good for 3 years.
Reports are often difficult to read. As a Buyer it may be prudent to have a third party analyze and explain the document.
A Strata can vote against having a depreciation report done but they have to revisit that every 18 months.
