Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of pre-purchase property inspections?

A pre-purchase property inspection will help you save on time and money. Qualified building inspectors can provide you with a detailed and easy-to-understand report that includes everything you need to know before purchasing. We can also give professional advice on whether or not you should acquire the home. This minimises the risk of financial stress as well as disputes with the vendor or builder in the long run.

Why should I hire a building inspector to conduct a property and pest inspection?

Our skilled building inspectors create a detailed and easy-to-understand report and also offer professional advice on whether to purchase the property or not. Many realtors don’t mention potential concerns since they want to sell the home. Our thorough inspections help you identify faults or negotiate a better bargain with the seller.

How long does it take to complete a timber pest inspection for my house?

A building pest inspection usually takes around a few hours. Depending on the issues found and/or the scale of your property, we can usually supply you with our reports within 24-48 hours of your inspection.

Can I use my building inspection report to settle a dispute?

This depends on the item disputed, where the liability lies and the extent to which the damages were covered in your report. See our services for NCAT reports, VCAT reports, expert reports and building completion reports for more details on court-mandated evidence for legally enforceable inspection reports.

When should I schedule a house inspection?

House inspections should be performed before making a formal offer, or if the property is going to auction, before the specified day or during the cooling-off period after exchanging contracts.

Why do I need building and pest inspectors and not just a real estate agent during my property purchase?

Qualified building inspectors are qualified building surveyors who are trained to examine buildings in detail, impartially and to recommend suitable repairs. Their job allows you to have an objective point of view regarding the results of your inspection. In contrast, real estate agents are tasked to sell the properties, not inspect them and will not be concerned with damages.

Will my building report be legally enforceable in the eyes of the law?

Generally, yes. However, regarding which report is actionable in the federal circuit, federal court or the high court is subject to which specific type of building inspection you enlist for your handover inspection. You can discuss your needs with our inspectors if you suspect you require a legally enforceable report in the eyes of the state, and we can recommend which service is most suited to your situation.
