Our Building Inspection Services
Pre-Purchase Building Inspection
A pre-purchase inspection is a must before you buy a property, whether it’s to be your home or an investment property.
Not only can it save you thousands in rectifying problems in the future, it can also provide a means to negotiate with the vendor based on any problems found.
Your comprehensive Pre-Purchase Inspection Report will be provided within 24 hours of your inspection and will include:
- Details of major defects including structural issues and problems that could cause further damage to the building
- Details of minor defects including cosmetic issues and items needing periodic maintenance
- Information on safety hazards such as structural damage or suspected presence of asbestos
- Details of any evidence of termites and other pests, whether current or inactive
- Photographs of defects identified within the property
After you receive your report our Inspector will be available to discuss the report with you over the phone so you can ask any questions you may have and get further information including:
- What work needs to be done to rectify the problems found and prevent their recurrence
- What ongoing maintenance may be required at the property
- Which tradespeople and other service providers we recommend for reliable, cost effective repairs and/or restoration
Our pre-purchase building inspections could save you a small fortune – contact us today for peace of mind.
Pre-Sale Building Inspections
If you’re selling your home, you’re in a much stronger negotiating position if you know what issues might be raised following potential buyers’ building inspections. The last thing you want is a sale to fall through or be negotiated down at the last minute due to issues you were not aware of.
Your potential buyers will have this information when entering negotiations, so you should too!
You can get any problems fixed before you put your property on the market, or if required you can get independent costings for repairs to ensure you get a fair price for your home.

Swimming Pool Inspections
Whether you’re selling or renting out a property, a pool safety inspection will ensure you meet your legal obligations for safety and compliance.
Homeowners need to make sure their pool is inspected, certified and registered on the NSW Pool Registry to ensure it meets Australian Standards and the pool safety legislation that took effect from October 2013.
From April 29, 2016, you must have valid Certificate of Compliance or a relevant Occupation Certificate before you can sell your property. We can help you obtain them to meet your obligations.
As with vendors, from April 29, 2016, a valid Certificate of Compliance or a relevant Occupation Certificate must be available before you can buy a property. We can advise whether the pool in question meets the required standard.
Landlords & Estate Agents
The pool on any rental property must be registered on the state Pool Safety Register, and a valid Certificate of Compliance must be provided to the tenant. We can help with that to make the process easy and help you meet your legal and safety obligations.

New Home Inspection
For most people a new home or major renovation is one of the biggest investments they’ll ever make. It makes sense to protect that investment with a New Home Inspection Report or Renovation Inspection Report.
Our thorough inspections ensure that all defects are identified, all non-compliant issues are found and any incomplete work is spotted.
Why rely on the builder’s opinion when you can have an expert, professional eye do the inspection and provide trusted advice. For more information,contact us today and get real peace of mind.
The dangers of asbestos are well known. It’s important to know if asbestos is present before undertaking any renovations or other building work, and if you manage a workplace you have a responsibility to protect your employees’ safety with an Asbestos Register and Management Plan.
Home Asbestos Inspections
If your home was built before 1990 it is wise to arrange an asbestos inspection before any building or renovation work is commenced.
Our Asbestos Inspectors will find any asbestos present in walls, floors, ceiling insulation, roofing or other construction materials, determine its type and risk level and provide a detailed report on the findings.
Workplace Asbestos Inspections
Under Work Health and Safety (WHS – formerly known as OHS) regulations, employers have a responsibility to maintain a safe workplace for anyone working in the building.
Certain businesses such as trades, maintenance and utility service providers must keep Asbestos Registers and Management Plans on site, and that’s where we come in.
We’ll conduct a detailed workplace asbestos inspection, then provide you with a detailed report, and create the asbestos register and management plan so you meet your obligations.
Our asbestos inspections will protect your health and look after your business – contact us today for peace of mind.

- The financial status of the building
- Issues within the building such as tenant disputes
