We’ve helped thousands of people across Melbourne and beyond

Thank you for the defect report. That was sobering! Just goes to show how people like us can be tricked into buying pretty houses.

Is what they’re doing even legal? Don’t they get their own building inspectors to check on the property before they put it on sale?

But I’m sure this property will sell for more than asking. Because it’s pretty and in an affluent suburb. Just like the first lemon  you inspected for us.

Oh well, thank you very much again.

Have a great weekend!

Peace of mind when buying your new home or property has never been easier.

If you’re here, then you’re clearly smart enough to know that not all houses on the market are as faultless as they seem. So when you’re on the lookout for your new property and want to make sure you’re not getting duped, or even just curious about the state of your own home, why not check out our guide to identifying building inspection defects.

Asbestos inspections can save lives

Asbestos can be extremely harmful to human health — it is highly recommended that professionals inspect your property for you, whether you require a simple routine check or are renovating or demolishing. Asbestos can be extremely easy to miss, which is why we recommend our highly trained inspectors at Building Masters perform your asbestos inspection for you. By allowing us to investigate, you might just save a life.

Avoid disaster…

When you make an offer to purchase “subject to a building inspection”, make sure that you do not sign a contract which uses words like these:

The purchaser may end this contract if the building inspection shows any major structural defect.”

As an 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 if you hold a report detailing these defects, by this stage it may be too late. We have seen many buyers end up with a great deal of anxiety and financial loss in these circumstances. This is because the agent and the vendor’s solicitor can attempt to force the sale through — purely on a 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.

Our independent inspectors offer more than peace of mind
