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.

WE FIND MAJOR & MINOR DEFECTS

The three major defect areas our experienced building and pest inspectors look for 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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

YOUR BRISBANE 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

In Brisbane, 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 Brisbane 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!
