Pest inspections included with every building service

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 at work for you. Simply put, 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.

The financial risks and emotional heartache that stems from buying the wrong property far outweighs the one-off cost of a reliable property inspection. We invite you to call Building Masters Inspections today for a rapid response from one of our qualified building inspectors.

Peace of mind when buying your new home or property in Melbourne’s northern and southern suburbs, Richmond, Mornington and nearby eastern suburbs has never been easier.

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 building inspector in Melbourne for many years, 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.

Just some of the things that set our  building reports apart:

Each inspection in Melbourne, Richmond and surrounding suburbs can come with full Repair & Renovation Cost Guidance (if appropriate to your negotiating strategy)

  • On-the-spot feedback, face to face with an experienced and knowledgeable professional independent building inspector in our mobile office
  • Unbiased access to a veteran builder’s knowledge and experience with the opportunity to ask the questions which matter most to you. You can also get great support and strategy suggestions for your price negotiating or even
    re-negotiating following the discovery of unexpected defects
