Professional Inspectors to Ensure Your Next Property Purchase Meets Building Standards

Here’s how we help you obtain the relevant information you need:
laser and thermal imaging

Laser and thermal imaging

Our building pest inspections use laser and thermal imaging to detect thermal anomalies and any sinking or uneven floors, ceilings, or walls. Thermal imaging also enables us to discover any visual evidence of termite activity.
subfloors and roof cavities

Inspection of subfloors and roof cavities

We will inspect every part of your roof space including the roof cavity and subfloor areas to assess for any damage, leaks, or structural issues. Our building inspectors are the most suitably equipped to provide the best reports in accordance to the unique layout of your property.
pest control issues

Pest report with recommended pest control actions

After our professionals inspect the property, if the pest inspection reports indicate pests on the property, our inspectors will recommend a solution to your pest issues so you can navigate this pre-sale period and reach your desired outcome. This may involve costs on pest control actions and other repairs.

Building Pest Inspection Report – Comprehensive Report

Our building pest inspection reports are sent to the customers in 24 to 48 hours after your inspection. Here are some elements that we usually cover in your documents:

Dilapidation reports and property inspections for new homes

A dilapidation building report records the current condition of the property. This is especially useful if you’re in between/have recently completed construction and you have surrounding properties lining your construction site. Dilapidation surveys help discourage false claims by neighbouring property owners against you for damage due to building works.

Reports of major structural defects and minor defects

We’ll provide details of the flaws found within the property. With essential recommendations for actions on major defects, you can quickly resolve the issues itemised on your report. Afterwards, you can also attend to minor defects, as those also affect the value of your property.

Photographic evidence to accompany your building reports

We present clear evidence in each section of the report. From photographs to other forms of visual records and descriptions, we make sure to include every relevant detail to help you with your claims with the vendor.

Timber pest inspection and identification of potential pest areas

Countless properties often use timbers in their constructions. These timbers often harbour pests, thus they need to be checked for its presence. We won’t only search for active termite activity, but also identify potential areas where they might nest next.

Recommendations for repair and trades works

After finding and recording the damage on your property inspection, we recommend the best course of action for repairs. These recommendations ensure that the damages will be rectified and are legally enforceable in the building report.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you need building pest inspections at your new property?

Oftentimes, new properties are not up to standards and do not match their valuation price. That’s why property inspections are a convenient and cost-saving step you are highly recommended to do prior to your final settlement. If you’re looking for someone to help during your handover inspection, our building pest inspections address all major and minor defects from pest control actions to necessary repair works.

Why do you need a house inspection with qualified building inspectors, not just your real estate agent?

Our qualified and fully insured building inspectors are experts in what they do. They also provide an objective evaluation of the property you’re interested in. Real estate agents are focused on selling the property and are not qualified to carry out property inspections or pest inspections. They are also not interested in protecting you from any liability that may arise from the sale of the property.

What can you do with a building report produced by professional inspectors?

The best thing to do is to evaluate the results of the inspection report and follow the recommendations that are suggested to you. You will be able to gain a fairer valuation of the property and reach a suitable outcome. Whether that is a better negotiating price with conditions of repairs fulfilled or backing out of the sale entirely, you’ll be able to protect yourself from financial damages in the long term.

Can I settle damages or construction that is not up to the building code with building inspectors?

A building inspection report can help you rectify poor construction works or damages found in a new property if it’s not up to building code. You can undergo further negotiation, mediation or fully undertake legal action in court with the evidence supplied to you to reach a better settlement outcome.
