We Use the Latest Technology in Our Pre Purchase Property Inspections

For pest inspections Mornington Peninsula residents can trust, we use the latest pest detection technology to quickly detect and map out termite paths and nests. Here’s how they work:
radar termite detector

Termatrac T3i Radar Termite Detector

This device is used in our timber pest inspections. It uses non-invasive, low-energy microwaves that pass through most building materials to detect termite activity. The high-frequency low radar emissions allow the operator to locate and track termite and other pests without causing disturbance in the walls. This makes them especially handy for inspecting properties built with a lot of wood elements in Mornington.
moisture and humidity meter

Moisture and Humidity Meter

Our property inspections won’t be complete without our state state-of-the-art moisture humidity meters. Our building inspector won’t only locate present termite and pest activity, but identify potential areas of risk where they may create their habitat next. This way, you won’t only be rectifying current pest problems, but be able to take pest control actions to prevent future infestations.
infrared camera

FLIR E5 Infrared Camera Thermal Imaging

This device uses undiluted thermal pictures with visible light features that allow our inspector to instantly recognise hidden issues such as leakage, termite nests, and other pest problems. Our thermal imaging technology remains one of the best diagnostic tools for identifying hidden building defects.

Our Building Inspectors Create Detailed Building and Pest Inspection Reports

Our building and pest inspection reports give you complete confidence by allowing you to understand every single area of risk on your property. This protects you from expensive financial damages and any liability that may arise as a result of the purchase. Our detailed report will examine every nook and cranny of your property, and assess the quality of the build as well as any recommended repair works should the construction not satisfy Australian Standards.

Identify timber pest activity and potentially vulnerable building pest areas.

A lot of properties in Mornington use timber. This increases the risk for pest issues, making a timber pest inspection that much more important. Our timber pest inspections will deliver reports that investigate vulnerable areas of your property alongside recommendations for possible solutions should pest-related problems be found.

Ensure present conditions meet building code and relevant Australian standards

Our qualified building inspector can ensure your property meets the local building code and Australian standards. We’re experienced with residential, commercial as well as investment property clients, so rest assured whether you’re navigating the sale of your first home or a space for your business, we’ve got you covered.

Report potential issues from structural issues to minor or major defects

From new homes to investment properties, we will document all major and minor defects on your premises. This will make them easy to locate and rectify accordingly. We also provide cost-effective recommendations on how to deal with them so you can plan for repairs or renovations as soon as possible.

Recommend appropriate rectifications, repairs and trades works

Our inspectors at Altez Building Inspection are professional, qualified and experienced. When you enlist a building inspector from our team, we’ll be sure to recommend cost-effective repairs and trade works for your rectifications.

Maintenance checks and handover inspections to help you reach an informed decision

Our inspection reports help buyers and sellers gain a more accurate property valuation. This way, they can choose to proceed with the sale or back out with all the risks made known to them. You can negotiate for a better asking price, or have the vendor answer to the required repairs before committing to the purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a building inspection for my new home?

A building inspection allows you to determine if the house’s condition is worth the sale value before you commit to finalising your purchase. This way, you’ll be able to identify any issues and remedy them, or even back out of the sale before risking major financial stress for yourself down the line.

When should I schedule my building inspection?

It’s ideal to schedule your inspection service before making a formal offer or, if the property will be auctioned, before the expected day or within the cooling-off period after exchanging contracts.

What can building inspectors do for me that a real estate agent can't?

Qualified building inspectors can give you a detailed building report to protect you from financial liability. In contrast, the job of real estate agents is to sell the properties, not inspect them.

Does Altez offer building inspections for investment property owners?

Yes, Altez Building Inspection offers property inspections for commercial and investment property owners in Mornington. We’ll be sure to identify any defects and risk areas to ensure you’re making a sound investment.

What can I expect during my pre-purchase building inspection process?

In most cases, you can expect a detailed report within 24 hours of the inspection. Your comprehensive building report will include all findings of the building and pest inspection, presented in an easy-to-understand language alongside their appropriate evidence for your convenience.

How do your pest inspectors carry out termite inspections and provide reports?

Altez Building Inspection uses the latest non-invasive thermal imaging technology from infrared cameras to moisture and humidity metres to quickly and safely locate termites and identify potential nesting areas.

How long does it take to complete building pest inspections? Do I need to be present or assist in some way?

You can be present for your building inspection, though we won’t be requiring assistance. It usually takes us a few hours for us to complete your building pest inspection.

Do you offer handover inspections if I'm buying or selling a property?

Yes, we can help oversee your handover with our inspections. Many customers come to us to investigate potential defects in this crucial point of the sale to ensure they won’t be unknowingly enlisting financial liability for themselves.
