Independent Building Inspections in Melbourne

Whether you’re buying a home, listing a property, adding to your portfolio, or simply require a condition report, it really pays have a professional pre purchase building and pest inspection to check for signs of structural damage to your home and protect what may be your most valuable investment. That’s where Casey Building Inspections come in. We offer thorough independent building inspection services carried out by qualified and independent building inspectors in Melbourne, Victoria.

Combined Building & Pest Inspections

Termites are incredibly destructive to timber structures, and unfortunately they are not usually found until significant damage has occurred. To prevent costly damage to your home – and ensure your peace of mind – we offer regular building and pest inspections in Melbourne. We also provide a discount when you combine a pest inspection with a pre purchase building inspection.

Dilapidation Reports

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 and document the conditions of a building and its features before construction, development or demolition takes place on a neighbouring property. These building reports are sometimes requested by Melbourne councils to provide an accurate record of a building and site conditions prior to works commencing.

Detailed Same-Day Building Reports

Once your inspection has taken place, you will be provided with a detailed and comprehensive report with photos, written in easy-to-understand, non-technical terms and formatted in a clear and straightforward way. All major sections of the report are labelled with full descriptions and colour photographs taken by your independent property 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 inspection is carried out.

Why Does Our Service Matter?

Your independent property inspector sometimes uncovers serious, expensive and potentially dangerous defects. Your inspector will document all major and minor defects with recommendations for rectification.

For Buyers:

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 have the problems fixed and staying within your budget.

We provide independent building inspections to Victoria’s prospective homeowners looking to protect their investment, including first home buyers and those purchasing from house auctions.

For Sellers:

If you are looking at listing your own home for sale, then a professional building inspection report can reassure you that there are no hidden defects, pest problems or costly repairs that will prevent the sale from taking place once a buyer has been found.
