“I was completely happy with the service provided, from the initial phone call and advice on what I needed, to the professional inspection and advice given by the inspector.

Thanks so much, I will definitely use this company again.”
“Amazing and professional experience, for a reasonable price. Will be using again!”
“Seth was great to work with. He did a detailed inspection leaving nothing unturned. He went through the home with me in detail offering solutions and explaining everything.”
“I needed a quick Building and Pest done with a 7 day clause on our dream home. The team here were able to book one in for us in 2 days and we had the report back the same day. Seth was fantastic. He was professional and polite the whole process. He physically showed me the ‘bigger issues’, and offered advice on why it’s happened and ways to look into fixing it. Or just things to watch for and prevent from getting worse. His report and checks were very thorough, to the point where every single tile in the house was checked, every cupboard/door/switch/appliance were checked. I am very happy with this company and Seth and would definitely recommend them!”
“The inspector Richard arrived at the spot in time and he did not waste any time to start working as soon as the gate was opened. I appreciate his explanation about the major and minor defects of the house pretty clear.”

“I would highly recommend YBI to anyone who is looking for a high quality pre-purchase building and pest report. I was extremely happy with the service that was delivered during the whole process from the quotation to the report. Sonia was very helpful and responsive and she liaised directly with the realestate agent and organised the time for inspection. – Guy, ‘the building inspector’, was very professional. I received a phone call from him on the same day of inspection, he explained the issues over the phone and he followed it up with the well-written, detailed report that included explanation and photos of all the issues and some helpful recommendations. Guy was also available for follow up questions and phone calls. He is awesome! Thank you”

Open and understanding – really gave us the confidence to both step away from a property that was a possible money pit but also the confidence to engage the off-market bid process and a process we were successful in.”
“From the initial email to the first phone call it was high service the whole way. What could easily be a stressful process was done with ease. Everyone along the way was great, I personally dealt with Sonia who was lovely. Even my solicitor said it’s one of the best reports she had seen and at incredible speed!”

‘An employee named “Guy” was assigned to do a pre-purchase inspection of a property I had put an offer in. He found some major defects that I had missed and gave me a call afterwards to explain the issues and required repairs. This allowed me to make an informed decision of the purchase which I actually ended up cancelling due to the potential future repair costs. I really dodged a bullet based on the report provided so I can’t thank Your Building Inspector enough. Would highly recommend.”
“Friendly customer service, super efficient and was mailed the report within an hour of inspection ending. Thank you!”

“I engaged Your Building Inspector within 24 hours of entering into a contract to purchase a dwelling. Cost was negligible when compared with; the level of service, the fast turnaround time, degree of detail provided and the vast quantity of photos depicting the inspected areas. The inspection report covers the quality of build and quality of maintenance for the age of the building. The inspector even reported a slightly crooked door on a cavity slider which takes two minutes and a screwdriver to remedy. I thoroughly recommend the service for piece of mind at a cost of just 0.07% of our purchase price. A special shout out to Caroline and Marko – great report, thank you.”

YOUR Central Coast BUILDING INSPECTORS
Your Building Inspector is not only an experienced builder, they are also fully licensed and insured to undertake inspections. Not sure what that means? Let us explain…
In Central Coast, it is not mandatory for inspectors to hold a builders licence.

THE LATEST EQUIPMENT
Not only is Your Building Inspector experienced, licensed and insured – each inspector is also equipped. Our building inspectors carry a moisture meter, thermal sensor and access equipment to every inspection they carry out.
The moisture meter records differential moisture levels within surfaces such as walls and floors without the need to make holes or damage the property. Your inspector will use this meter if there is visual evidence of moisture damage within the property. The moisture meter also identifies termite risk areas by reading the concentrated presence of moisture within the surfaces of the property.
Your inspector will use a thermal imaging sensor within your inspection if visual evidence of termite activity is discovered. This thermal imaging device identifies heat sources generated by termites within building surfaces and helps to trace the termite nest and entry points in the building.

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 the 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.
