WHAT IS A BUILDING INSPECTION?
A building inspection is undertaken prior to a buyer purchasing a property. It is essential that you appoint an experienced, licensed building inspector to carry out the inspection to ensure all major and minor defects are reported. To learn more about building inspections and other property inspections go to our services.
ARE YOUR INSPECTORS LICENSED?
All of our inspectors are licensed builders who have been operating under that license for at least 5 years. As well as this, all of our inspectors carry pest certifications and their own insurance.
CAN I BE PRESENT AT THE INSPECTION?
We welcome owners and buyers to be present at the time of inspection, although we ask that you leave the inspector to carry out their inspection and wait to ask your questions at the end. This allows the inspector to concentrate solely on assessing the property to deliver a non-bias report.
WHO ARRANGES ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY?
We ask that you arrange the property to be accessible at the agreed inspection time. We are able to keep our costs down by having minimal time spent on administration.
HOW LONG DOES THE INSPECTION TAKE?
A typical combined building and pest inspection will take between one to two hours.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY REPORT?
You will receive your report within 24 hours of your inspection. Please note that payment must be received prior to the report being sent.
WHAT EQUIPMENT IS USED BY THE INSPECTOR?
Your Inspector will carry a ladder, torch, moisture meter and thermal sensor to your inspection. Please be aware that the moisture meter is only used when visual evidence of moisture is identified by your inspector. The same protocol is followed for the use of the thermal sensor, which is also only required when visual evidence of pest activity is identified.

I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT MY REPORT, WHO DO I SPEAK TO?
