A building inspection is designed to give you independent and objective advice about the physical state of a building. This advice enables you to make an informed decision, usually about whether to purchase a property or not. Inspection reports need to be current as they are a snapshot in time. Therefore, you should always ensure you refer to a current inspection before deciding to invest in property.

Still not sure if you need an inspection?
Our reports are the best value in the industry, and uncover building faults and damage invisible to the untrained eye of most vendors, buyers and estate agents. When you consider the cost of repairs from structural damage, termites, damp or faulty wiring which can exceed thousands of dollars or more, a small outlay prior to purchase is a very modest price for certainty about what you’re buying.
You’re not just paying for a building inspection report, you are paying for knowledge, qualifications, experience, customer service and assistance with a very large investment that in the end could save you thousands of dollars in unseen repairs and rectification. You will get cheaper building inspections in Melbourne but they may not be completed by a registered builder with 35yrs+ experience who knows what to look for.
