Licensed Building Inspections

The purpose of the inspection is to identify major defects, the incidence of minor defects and safety hazards associated with the property at the time of the inspection.

It is important to have as much knowledge about the condition of the property before you make the purchase to avoid extra costs and problems in the future. A pre-purchase building inspection report, also known as a building inspection report, is the best way to make an informed decision.

What is a pre-purchase building inspection?
A pre-purchase building inspection report is a written document on the condition of a property. It will outline the overall condition of the property and inform you about any significant building defects or issues. These range from minor issues to serious issues, such as structural damage or termite infestation which may not be visible at first glance or to the untrained eye. The inspection is generally performed prior to exchange of sale contracts to determine the condition of the property at the time of inspection.

Our reports all comply with the Australian Standard (AS 4349.1)

A building inspection report should identify any visual damage that may have been caused by termites, however it usually wont include termites or other timber destroying pests. It is also recommended to have pest inspection carried out prior to purchasing a property.

Pre-sale Inspections

A pre-sale building and pest inspection is a great way for vendors to prepare themselves for issues that may arise at time of inspection. If there are any faults or issues the vendor may wish to rectify prior to listing property. This can maximise sale prices and a hassle free contract. Pre-sale building and pest inspections may also be required prior to properties being listed for auction.

Practical Completion Inspections

In addition to Pre-purchase building inspections we also offer Practical Completion inspections. A Practical Completion inspection is crucial as it allows new home owners identify any defects and get them rectified before handover. Practical Completion is when the contract work is considered to have been completed. Building defects and other issues are not always apparent to the untrained eye, so its crucial to employ the services of an experienced and licensed building inspector to carry out a quality assurance inspection on your behalf prior to handover. Our reports are conducted by a fully licensed building inspector who also holds a current builders license and has extensive knowledge in the building trade and will ensure all building works complies with the Building Code of Australia and Australian Standards.
