Building & Pest
Inspections

All Building Inspections pre-purchase building reports are clear and comprehensive, providing you with the knowledge and confidence to make the right decision on a property purchase. Our building inspection reports are easy to follow, and include lots of photos of each room and area inspected, including pictures identifying any defects found so that you can see for yourself immediately what those issues are and decide how to proceed.

We ensure that our pre-purchase building inspections comply with or exceed the Australian Standard.

You are welcome to attend the inspection, which gives you the opportunity to go through the property with the Inspector and discuss any concerns you may have. Once you have received the report, we are more than happy to take the time to discuss the content and provide you with expert advice if required.

Home Buyers

We give you the tools to be confident that you’re making the right offer on your new home. Engage a trade-qualified building inspector to provide you with a clear and comprehensive pre-purchase building and pest inspection report.
Buyers are welcome to attend the building & pest inspection and chat with the Inspector about any particular concerns. Our easy-to-read building reports are usually available to you within 24 hours of the inspection.

Home Vendors

As a seller, knowing if there are repair issues is critical to getting the best price for your property. Often vendors avoid looking into this thinking that it is simply better to not know, however it is almost certain that a potential purchaser will obtain their own building and pest inspection, giving them the upper hand in negotiating the price down.

All Building Inspections can help identify issues and assist in obtaining quotes to rectify those issues.

The Importance of Professional Building Inspections

Whether you are buying an established house or suspect there may be issues in a property you already own, a building and pest inspection is an important investment. A property inspection conducted by a trained and qualified professional can identify defects that you may not notice on a cursory property walkthrough as a buyer.
