YOUR FRASER COAST INSPECTORS

Our Fraser Coast building and pest inspectors are fully licensed and insured. Not sure what that means? Let us explain…

Licensed

On the Fraser Coast, building and pest inspectors are required to hold a Builder’s Licence. They then need to acquire a Building Inspector’s Licence, as well as a Termite Management License; if they wish to inspect on pests (eg, termites). Building and pest inspectors in Queensland need to have held their builder’s license for at least 5 years, which means that your inspector is not only licensed, they’re also highly experienced.

Insured

It is a requirement for Fraser Coast building inspectors to hold public liability insurance, so that in the unlikely chance of an incident you don’t need to worry. Additionally, as a requirement of the QBCC, all of our building inspectors hold professional indemnity insurance. Put simply, they are completely insured if anything was to go wrong, which means peace of mind for you!

THE LATEST EQUIPMENT

Your Fraser Coast Building Inspector is equipped, experienced, licensed and insured – it’s our guarantee to you. Our Fraser Coast building inspectors carry a moisture meter, thermal sensor and access equipment to every inspection.

Moisture Meter for building inspections

Moisture Meter

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.

Thermal Imaging for building inspections

Thermal Sensor

Your inspector will use a thermal sensor within your inspection if visual evidence of termite activity is discovered. This device identifies heat sources generated by termites within building surfaces and helps to trace the termite nest and entry points in the building.

SERVICES LIST

Your Building Inspector Fraser Coast specialises in pre-purchase building and pest inspections for residential and commercial properties. 

In most cases, we can organise to inspect the property by the next business day and deliver your report on the same day as the inspection, meaning you have plenty of time to go through the details and make a decision about the property. 

Pre-purchasing Building & Pest Inspection

A pre-purchase building & pest Inspection is undertaken when a buyer is finalising the purchase of a property. It is also undertaken by sellers who want to know the condition of their property before they put it on the market. 

The inspection is a visual appraisal of the condition of the property. Its purpose is to identify existing issues, defects or areas of concern. This inspection is carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.1.

The report is broken into three sections – Major defects, minor defects and termites. 

The major defects section will report on any areas of the property that show major structural damage or present major safety hazards. This is the area of the report that you should pay most attention to, as these defects may be costly to repair. 

The minor defects section will identify any areas of the property that show minor damage, general wear and tear and issues that require maintenance. Minor defects can include issues such as cracked tiles, poorly maintained cabinetry or chipped paint. These are not areas of serious concern, but could be used in negotiations when purchasing the property.

The termite section will report on any areas of the property that visually show current or past termite attacks. Your inspector will also report on areas of the property that may be conducive to termite attack. If your inspector identifies signs of termite damage, they will bring out their Termatrac T3i which uses a thermal sensor to determine whether active termites are within the wall of floor without drilling or damaging the property. 

Throughout the report, your building and pest inspector will use high quality photos and descriptions to describe each issue, so you have a complete understanding of the properties condition. If you’re present at the inspection, your inspector will also walk you through the property to explain any major issues. 

Pre-purchase Building Only Inspection

A pre-purchase building Inspection is undertaken when a buyer is finalising the purchase of a property. It is also undertaken by sellers who want to know the condition of their property before they put it on the market. Generally, if you are buying an apartment that is part of a unit complex you will only need to get a building inspection, as the pest control and upkeep is taken care of by the body corporate. 

The inspection is a visual appraisal of the condition of the property. Its purpose is to identify existing issues, defects or areas of concern. This inspection is carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.1.

The report is broken into two main sections – major defects and minor defects.  

The major defects section will report on any areas of the property that show major structural damage or present major safety hazards. This is the area of the report that you should pay most attention to, as these defects may be costly to repair.

Minor defects can include issues such as cracked tiles, poorly maintained cabinetry or chipped paint.

Throughout the report, your building inspector will use high quality photos and descriptions to describe each issue, so you have a complete understanding of the properties condition. If you’re present at the inspection, your inspector will also walk you through the property to explain any major issues. 

Pre-purchase Pest Only Inspection

A Pest Only Inspection is carried out when you are confident with the overall condition of the property, but you need to ensure any pest activity is identified. Your inspector will investigate for termite activity or damage, as well as pest attack or damage. Your inspector will visually inspect all accessible areas of your property. Areas that are commonly inspected are roof cavities and subfloor areas, as well as the interior and exterior of the property.

New Property Condition Report

A New Build Handover Inspection is carried out on newly constructed homes, apartments or townhouses and takes place prior to the buyer taking possession of the property. Your inspector will report on any minor defects, incomplete finishes and general defects throughout the property.

Existing Property Condition Report

An Existing Building Condition Report is undertaken to assess the current state of a property, it is generally conducted prior to additional construction or demolition work being undertaken on the property.

Your inspector will report on any visible cracks or movement within the property and the surrounding land. They will also inspect and report on  major and minor defects evident throughout the property. 

The major defects section will report on any areas of the property that show major structural damage or present major safety hazards. The minor defects section will identify any areas of the property that show minor damage, general wear and tear and issues that require maintenance. 

Throughout the report, your building inspector will use high quality photos and descriptions to describe each issue, so you have a complete understanding of the properties condition. If you’re present at the inspection, your inspector will also walk you through the property to explain any major issues.

FAQ

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.

My post code isn’t in your service area, what do I do?

We aim to service the majority of suburbs across the Fraser Coast, although if your postcode is not within our service area when you search it doesn’t mean we can’t service you! Continue to fill out your online form and your closest building inspector will be in touch with a tailored price based on the distance your location is from our main service areas!

I have questions about my report, who do I speak to?

We encourage you to speak with the building inspector who made your booking and conducted your inspection. That way you’re dealing with the person who has first-hand knowledge of the property you’re buying. They will talk you through any sections of the report you are unsure about.
