Kris called us immediately to arrange the inspection and was very helpful. He arrived early and we chatted until the real estate agent arrived. He was very personable and professional. He completed the inspection efficiently and even answered some renovation related questions. He returned the report quickly and I was able to text him to ask a couple of additional questions which he answered straight away. I would highly recommend him and the company for your building inspections.

WE FIND AND REPORT MAJOR & MINOR DEFECTS

The three major defect areas our experienced inspectors look for in a Gold Coast building and pest inspection include;

Structural

Is the property structurally sound and are there any areas that are poorly maintained or present serious safety hazards? Your Building Inspector will use high quality photos to demonstrate the areas of concern.

Water

Is there any water or moisture build up in the property? If there are signs, Your Building Inspector will use their moisture meter to take a reading and note it on your report.

Termite

Is there any previous or current termite activity inside and outside the property? Your Building Inspector will report on any findings and use their thermal sensor to pick up on active termite attacks.

Minor defects are also noted and photographed on your report, these can include; cracked tiles, broken door hinges, poorly maintained cabinetry, chipped paint. These are not areas of serious concern, but could be used in negotiations when purchasing the property.

YOUR GOLD 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…

best reviewed building inspection company in Brisbane

Licensed

On the Gold 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 Gold 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 inspectors hold professional indemnity insurance. Put simply, they are completely insured if  anything was to go wrong, which means peace of mind for you!

professional building inspectors

Professional

Our Gold Coast building and pest inspectors have at least 10 years building experience, and conduct themselves in a professional and courteous manner.  This is helpful when they are inspecting the property on behalf of the buyer at the seller’s address. Our inspectors are committed to providing  non-bias reports that are thorough and easy to understand. They believe in delivering great customer service and communicating efficiently with clients.

THE LATEST EQUIPMENT

Your Building Inspector is not only experienced, licensed and insured – each inspector is also equipped. Our Gold Coast building inspectors carry a moisture meter, thermal sensor and access equipment to every inspection they carry out.

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 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.

BUILDING AND PEST INSPECTION SERVICES LIST

Your Building Inspector Gold 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. 

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.

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. 

Body Corporate Inspection Report

A Body Corporate Inspection Report is carried out within an apartment, unit or townhouse complex on behalf of the owners. This report includes inspection of all internal and external common areas, including; hallways, entries, foyers, external facades, pool areas, etc. The report will identify areas of concern that will need to be rectified.

FAQ

What is a building and pest Inspection?

A building and pest inspection is undertaken prior to a buyer purchasing a property, and is generally a condition of sale. It is essential that you appoint an experienced, licensed building and pest inspector to carry out the inspection to ensure all major and minor defects are reported. The inspector will return a report on the property noting any defects found, your report will also include photos of all reported issues.

Are the inspectors licensed?

All of our building and pest inspectors are licensed builders who have been operating under that license for at least 10 years. As well as this, all of our inspectors carry pest certifications and their own insurance.

Who arranges access to the property?

We will work with your agent to arrange a time that suits all parties. Provide your agents details through the online form or over the phone and we will get in contact with them. If you have already found a time that works with your agent, that’s fantastic, let us know and we will try to accommodate the given time.

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.

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 on the same day as 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 metropolitan and outer suburbs of Brisbane, although if your postcode is not within our service area when you are completing your booking form 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.
