Building inspections that give you peace of mind before you buy

For years, we have eliminated doubt and given peace of mind to property buyers in Melbourne, Richmond, Mornington and nearby eastern suburbs through effective building inspections. Our property inspectors offer professional advice with attention to detail when inspecting your potential property purchase, every time. We also offer in-depth structural evaluations for your property to help save you time and money.

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.

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 buying a property, a pre-purchase building defect inspection is essential. We will equip you with an inspection report including the cost of repairs and genuine advice with real knowledge from one of our building inspectors so you can not only make an informed real estate purchase but also and use it as a powerful negotiating tool, even after making an offer.

Hi Mike,

Initially we were unsure whether it's worth to hire an inspector to inspect our home building for the frame and pre-plastering stage. However, it turns out to be worth of value as Building Master outline the details of what shown to be a significant defects that needs to be fixed by builder which without it, will not be noticed by us. Michael has provide a great service in answering all our queries. Definitely use your service again if we are going to build another house. Thank you.
