Q. We want a fully detailed Report that we can share and discus with our family and friends. Which is the best type of Report for this, how is it written (by hand or typed), what do you inspect and how much does it cost?

Q. We just want a quick cheap inspection to tell us if the property is structurally sound. Which of your services is best suited for this, what do you inspect and how much does it cost
A. This information is here, Pre-Purchase inspections ‘Verbal Reports’. Quotations are available by phone, fax or email.
Q. Why do you offer only a verbal, and not a full written, report for homes older than 30 years?
A. We cannot document every rusty nail and bolt, of which there would be many, in older homes. However if we find a major structural defect in the building we would document it so that you can then cancel the sale, if you wish.
Q. How do we arrange access to the property for the Inspection?
A. We will arrange access to the property through your real estate agent.
Q. We signed the Contract subject to a satisfactory Building inspection. Does this cover us if we do not want to go ahead with the purchase?
A. Only if a ‘major structural defect’ is found. You may be better advised to arrange a Building Inspection before you sign the contract or before your Cooling Off Period expires.
Q. I am moving to Victoria. Will the photographs in the Report give me a good picture of my new home?
A. Yes. If possible we photograph the front, kitchen, roof space and sub-floor area of the house.
Q. We are concerned about termites. Do you offer a termite or pest inspection service?
A. Yes. A termite or pest inspection can be arranged at the same time as the building inspection.
Q. As Owner-Builder all the Council and other Building Inspections have been done. Why do I now have to arrange yet another Inspection before I sell my home?
A. This information is on the Owner-Builder page.
Q. What is the cost of an Owner-Builder Report?
A. The cost of an Owner-Builder Report is determined mainly by the size of the project. Quotations are available by phone, fax or email.
Q. Will I also need Warranty Insurance?
A. Domestic projects of $12000.00 or more in value, as stated on the Building Permit, require Warranty Insurance. Our inspection service includes assistance with warranty insurance. We would recommend the insurance company most suited to your project. Domestic projects of less than $12000.00 in value require a Report only. Commercial/industrial projects of any value require a report only, no insurance.
Q. The Inspection is urgent. When can it be done?
A. Urgent inspections can generally be arranged within 2 business days.
