Building & Timber Pest Inspections Melbourne

Pre-Purchase Building Inspections

Our BUILDING INSPECTION will thoroughly and accurately assess the condition of the building and identify MAJOR STRUCTURAL DEFECTS as well as any MAINTENANCE ISSUES.

The knowledge you will gain from our thorough inspection and detailed report will empower you to make the right decision. With our assistance, let yourself buy with confidence!

We inspect all areas of the building (subject to safe access limitations) including any outbuildings to ensure they are structurally sound and safe before you commit to buying.

  • Exterior of building
  • Interior of building
  • Roof space
  • Subfloor space (If applicable)
  • Outbuildings (garages, carports, verandahs, timber decks retaining walls, swimming pool fences/gates, balconies, balustrades and more)

After the inspection your building consultant will give you a verbal summary of the inspection findings before your written reports are prepared and emailed out. At this time you will have an opportunity to ask any questions.

A full photographic record of the building is taken at the time of the inspection for reference and relevant photographs are included in our comprehensive pre-purchase building reports.
