I am from interstate and was looking to purchase a home with my superannuation for my daughter to rent. I was given Chris's details by a Civil engineering contact with words of praise as a good person to use.Chris totally lived up to the recommendation. He was efficient, thorough, knowledgeable and blunt in his assessment of the proposed property. He was also fearless in recommending we not proceed. This impressed me not just because he was looking after my interests as you'd hope, but because that assessment was based not just on the bricks and mortar but on his knowledge of my total set of circumstances, ie I did not have sufficient financial resources to countermand deficiencies which may continue to surface over time resulting from a poor initial build quality and a subsequent amateurish renovation. I'm using his expertise again as I continue my search, reassured that Chris will lend his considerable skillset to help me get a good purchase outcome.Heather

Brett recently undertook a residential building inspection prior to purchasing a new family home. Brett was very professional and was extremely thorough in his inspection - you could tell he'd spent many years as a builder, and knew what "good' looks like. He provided photos and even gave me a follow-up phone call after for a post-inspection briefing. Even the realestate agent was impressed with his active, inquisitive and comprehensive inspection. Brett was was a pleasure to deal with and I know that the inspection was genuine - I have since been recommending him to my work mates. Andrew

Had Chris come out recently for a pre-purchase inspection, he was great, very thorough. His experience as an owner builder really showed as well. He picked out several items not shown in the agent/seller supplied report too so we were very impressed. Happily recommend Chris from Your Building Inspector for building and pest inspections.

building_inspection_melbourne

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.

building_inspection_melbourne

Thermal Imaging

Your inspector will use a thermal imaging device 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 specialises in a range of residential and commercial inspection reports.

If you’re searching for a pre-purchase inspection report for your new property in Melbourne, we can organise to inspect the premise and deliver you report within 24 hours.

If it’s a Melbourne condition report you’re needing, we can organise this for new or existing properties. Turn around on these types of reports depend on the size of the property, however we will aim to deliver your report as soon as possible.

Pre-purchasing Building & Pest Inspection

A pre-purchase building & pest Inspection is undertaken when a buyer is finalising the purchase of a property. The inspection is a visual appraisal of the condition of a property. Its purpose is to identify existing issues, defects or areas of concern. This inspection is carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.1-2007. Your building and pest Inspection will warn you about any major damage the property has, as well as any evidence of termite or pest attacks and any significant water or moisture damage. Your report will include photos of any significant hazards or defects.

Pre-purchase Building Only Inspection

A building only inspection is carried out when a buyer is finalising the purchase of a property. Its purpose is to identify existing issues, defects or areas of concern in newly built or existing homes, apartments or townhouses. This inspection is carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.1-2007. The report will comment on any structural damage found as well as the conditions conducive to this damage. The report will also highlight any major safety hazards or defects found.

Your report will include photos of any significant hazards or defects.

Buying a property is one of the biggest purchase you will undertake, therefore we recommend booking a combined building and pest inspection to ensure you gain an accurate understanding of the overall property condition.

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 property condition report 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

Otherwise known as a dilapidation 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. This kind of report provides the contractor with an independent record of any adjoining properties condition, prior to the commencement of building works. The report may be used as evidence by the contractor if a dispute arises between any property owner claiming that the works have resulted in damage to their adjoining property.

Additionally, property owners also like to undertake an existing building condition report to determine if any new demolition or construction works have resulted in any property damage that wasn’t there prior.

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 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?

In Melbourne, it is not a legal requirement to have completed building inspector training. Though our Melbourne building inspectors must have completed building and pest inspection training as a minimum requirement. Each inspector also holds a current pest management technician licence.

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 imaging equipment 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 thermal imaging, 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 Melbourne, 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.
