Building and Pest Inspection Cost

For all the information you require, please call our friendly staff on 1800 008 240

The Inspections are carried out by qualified professional Inspectors to current Australian Standards and they are both organised at the same time for everyone’s convenience.  Metrospect have been servicing Melbourne Metropolitan and Regional Victoria for 14 years and in that time, have proven to be a reputable business with many clients coming back to us time and time again. We have over 30 year’s experience in the Building Industry.  We have Professional Indemnity Insurance and we are a member of the HIA (Housing Industry Association – The Best in the Business).

 

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

 

You will receive both Build & Pest Reports by the following day of the inspection or by the same day on request.  A verbal report will 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 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.
