We will contact the agent if applicable or Vendor to organise access to perform the inspections and we will send a return email once confirmed.

Payment is due on the day of the inspection.  We accept Visa and MasterCard, Direct Bank Transfer, Cash or Cheque.  Direct Bank details are emailed once the inspection is confirmed.

You will receive both Build & Pest Reports by the following day of the inspection.  A verbal report can be given on the day and you are welcome to attend the inspection.  We will work in with you so that you get the information you require within your time frame.

The Building Inspector will conduct a thorough inspection of the property internally and externally looking for major structural defects and will document any major issues with photos.  The Sub-Floor & Roof-Space is inspected (where accessible). We also do a comprehensive maintenance check and we can advise of any estimated cost of repair. We do a visual inspection to advise if there is any material used at the property that may contain Asbestos.  We can also offer any building advice you may require such as removing walls or advice on your renovation plans at no extra charge.  We do a full visual inspection of the electrical and plumbing and will advise on drainage, water pressure, water hammer etc. and also advise if it’s the old original wiring and safety switch 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.  If you have any requests or concerns, we ask that you advise us of this before your inspection so that the inspectors are fully aware.  You will receive a detailed written Report consisting of 20 plus pages via email by the following day of the inspection and if you have any questions about the report we will put you in touch with the inspectors.

The Pest Inspector will conduct a thorough non invasive Inspection of the property looking for Timber Pests such as Termites and Borer using the latest products & equipment including Thermal Imaging Camera and Moisture Meter as well as old fashioned tap sounding techniques and visual inspection. The Pest Inspectors are Fully Licensed and have Full Professional Indemnity Insurance.
