Pre Purchase Building Inspections

  • Are you biding on your dream home at auction?
  • Just made an offer on your perfect family house?
  • Are you confident you know what you’re buying?

Our qualified and fully independent pre-purchase inspections tell you exactly what an agent or seller doesn’t want you to see. Often we discover minor faults that an untrained eye would glance over, that if left unchecked, can cause thousands of dollars of damage in months and years to come.

Building Inspection includes a fully written report conducted to Australian Standards 4349.1. Your completed reports will be emailed to you the SAME DAY your inspection is conducted. (No waiting for reports) with immediate phone results if you cannot attend. We take photos of every defect detected, with particular attention to any areas of concern, including any other specific issues we deem necessary.

Each defect we'll tell you..

  • * What the defect is..
  • * Where the defect is..
  • * What the likely consequences will be if the defect is not repaired..
  • * Our recommendation for repair, and the suitable trades person required..
  • * Estimated costs for repairs if requested.. 

All our Inspections come with free after sales advice for LIFE.
