Building Inspections Melbourne
Independent Building Inspector Melbourne
It pays to have professional building inspections. Whether you are buying a home, listing, adding to your portfolio or require a condition report, it pays to look into pre purchase house inspections, to protect your investment. Protecting what may be your most valuable investment is what it is all about. Our thorough and professional pre purchase house inspections are carried out by a qualified inspector. We sometimes uncover serious and expensive defects. We document all major and minor defects with recommendations for rectification. Forewarned is forearmed, as the saying goes. When you know about building defects or pest problems in advance of your purchase, you are empowered to either get them rectified by the current owner, or negotiate a purchase price which allows you to fix the problems within your budget. If you are looking at listing your own home for sale, then professional home inspections can reassure you that there are no hidden defects or pest problems that will prevent the sale from taking place, once a buyer has been found. For those who are buying a home in Melbourne, we believe independent property inspections are essential to protect your investment! Casey Building inspections cost a tiny fraction of the purchase price of the house. Don’t be tempted to shortcut a home inspection or forego it completely in order to save a relatively small amount of money – because you will run the risk of not finding possibly serious and expensive defects. You wouldn’t buy a car without a roadworthy certificate, so why buy a house without a clear report?
Termites are incredibly destructive to timber structures and not usually found until significant damage has occurred. Our independent, regular termite and pest inspection can prevent costly damage to your Melbourne home and provide reassuring peace of mind.
Combined Building and Pest Inspections
Termite and timber pest inspections can be combined with pre purchase building inspections and a discounted price offered.
A dilapidation report is sometimes confused with a defect report, but it is not the same. The purpose of a dilapidation report is to identify the actual conditions of a building and features and to document these items prior to construction, development or demolition taking place on a neighbouring property. These are sometimes requested by council to provide an accurate record of a building and site conditions prior to works commencing. Read more about dilapidation reports here.
Having pest or building inspections conducted in Casey (and other metro councils in Melbourne) by a trusted and professional, qualified engineer, ensures that you get a thorough and comprehensive report on the condition of your house. Our building inspections usually take between two to three hours, but the time involved depends upon the size of the property and the types of problems encountered. No matter how long this professional building inspection takes, the price remains the same.
Detailed Written Same-day Report
Once the inspection has taken place, you will be provided with a detailed and comprehensive report, written in easy-to-understand non-technical terms and formatted in a way that makes it easy to understand. All major sections of the report are labelled with full descriptions and colour photographs taken by our independent building inspector to provide you with a detailed record of the property’s condition. For your convenience, this important report will be provided to you on the same day that the home inspections are carried out.
