Our Property Negotiation Service could save you thousands
As an additional support to our clients, Building Masters offer a professional No Win – No Cost Property Price Negotiating service.
Employing the significant advantage of having prepared the Building Defect Report, in addition to our years of experience with the purchase of real estate, we are in a powerful position to negotiate the purchase price of the property on your behalf. We are aware most people do not have the negotiating skill required to take advantage of this process.
The preparation of a comprehensive Building Defect Report is recognised as essential to a property buyer, but the negotiating opportunity the report can create is often left unrealised. Until now, making use of the Building Defect Report to negotiate the purchase price – before or after the contract of sale has been signed – has been the province of the professional advocate – an expensive option for a buyer.
At Building Masters our senior staff have been engaged in building defect reporting and negotiating for decades – providing a negotiating service in addition to our Inspection Report services is logical for us and highly effective for our clients. Click here to find out more.
After you sign the purchase contract at the best price you can, you then book a Full-Service inspection within the “3 Day Cooling-Off Period” (talk to us first to check the clause wording of your contract)
If the report indicates unexpected repair expenses, you can appoint us to re-negotiate with the agent; this is normally possible and often successful in the cooling-off period with a repair costed defect report
We can then re-negotiate the purchase price on your behalf for a flat fee of 10% of the resulting discounted contract price (you forward our invoice to the Conveyancer to be paid later from settlement funds)
This approach can create a huge saving for you and is an incentive for us – it’s a genuine Win/Win

Peace of mind when buying your new home or property has never been easier.
Are you looking at buying a new house? Or perhaps you are wanting to identify some issues around the home, take look at our guide to identifying building inspection defects.
Pest inspections included with every building inspection
The property inspector we send to you is highly experienced in every possible issue that can arise. Our team of experienced builders are conscientious professionals, with decades of industry knowledge. Put simply, if you’re looking to buy a property, a pre-purchase building defect inspection is essential. We will equip you with an inspection report which includes the cost of any repairs that’s filled with genuine advice from one of our building inspectors. With the building report in hand, you can not only make an informed real estate purchase but you can also use it as a powerful negotiating tool.
Asbestos inspections that can save lives
As asbestos can be extremely harmful to human health, it is highly recommended that professionals inspect your property for you, whether you require a routine check or are renovating or demolishing. Asbestos can be easy to miss, which is why we recommend our highly trained inspectors at Building Masters perform your asbestos inspection for you.
When making an offer to purchase “subject to a building inspection” make sure not to sign a contract which uses words like these: “The purchaser may end this contract if the building inspection shows any major structural defect.”
As experienced house and independent building inspector, I can assure you we often find defects which amount to deal breakers, but which cannot be described as “major structural defects.” Even with a report detailing these defects, we have seen a great deal of anxiety and financial losses occur in these circumstances. This is because the agent and the vendor’s solicitor can attempt to force the sale through because of the technicality of the language used.
Remember, you normally only have two professionals on your side before buying a new home or property – your solicitor and your building inspector. The vendor’s agent is not on your side.
