AVAILABILITY

We can generally carry out an inspection within 24 to 48 hours. We may require up to 3 days’ notice so please let us know ASAP so that we can secure a place for you.  We will advise our exact availability at the time of your call or on our emailed quote to you.  We recommend confirming your appointment without delay so that it can be scheduled with the agent in time or to allow notice for the Vendor or Tenant.  If you are not quite ready to book an inspection but you would like us to hold a place for you, please reply to the email or call us with your request and we will work in with you.

BUILDING INSPECTIONS 

The Building Inspector will conduct a non-invasive visual inspection of the property internally and externally looking for major structural defects and the Reports will include photos.  The Sub-Floor & Roof-Space are inspected (where accessible). We can also advise verbally of any estimated cost of repair.  (Please Note: this is not quote for cost of repairs but an indication only to be used as a guide).  We include an inspection of the wet areas looking for leaking and dampness issues (where accessible).  We can also offer verbal building advice you may require on issues such as removing walls or advice on your renovation plans at no extra charge.

We do a limited non-invasive visual inspection of the electrical and plumbing (where accessible) and will advise on drainage, water pressure, water hammer etc. Keeping in mind that the Inspector is a Building Inspector not a licensed Electrician or Plumber as with any Building Inspector.  We recommend to engage a Licensed Electrician and Plumber if you have any further concerns in this area.  We recommend you consult with the owner and agent to satisfy yourself regarding the operation of items such as, but not limited to, appliances, alarms, intercoms, heating and cooling systems, blinds (internal and external), soft furnishings, telephones, spa pumps and pool equipment. The Inspectors cannot guarantee that they are in satisfactory working order.

If you have any specific requests or concerns, we ask that you advise us of this in writing before your inspection so that it can be included on the site report for the Inspectors. You will receive a written Report consisting of over 20 pages depending on the size of the house. If you have any questions about the Report we will put you in touch with the Inspectors to discuss.

TIMBER PEST INSPECTIONS 

The Timber Pest Inspector will conduct a non-invasive visual Inspection of the House to current Australian Standards. The inspection will look for Timber Pests such as Termites and Borer. The Timber Pest Inspectors are qualified and have Professional Indemnity Insurance.

BUILD & TIMBER PEST INSPECTIONS 

Metrospect Building & Pest Inspections can organise a combined Building & Timber Pest Inspection by two professional Inspectors both at the same time for everyone’s convenience at a very competitive discounted rate.

DILAPIDATION INSPECTION & CONDITION REPORT  

A Dilapidation Inspection and Condition Report is to document the condition of a property adjoining the works prior to the commencement of construction. The Report includes photos of any cracking and/or damage that may be evident at the Property. Metrospect has experience in the organisation of this type of inspection and will conduct them in a professional and timely manner.

REPORTS 

The Inspectors will call you with a Verbal Report Summary after the Inspection on the day.  We provide lengthy detailed written Reports including photos.   The Reports are very easy to follow and understand.  They are emailed to you fast and if you have any queries on the Reports we will put you in touch with the Inspectors at a time that suits.

 PAYMENT DETAILS 

Payment is due on the day of the inspection.  We accept Visa and MasterCard and Direct Bank Transfer.  Direct Bank details are emailed on confirmation of the inspection.
