How you can benefit from our building inspections

There are a number of important reasons why property inspections are necessary when purchasing property in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and beyond. When you purchase a new home, you want to make sure that you are getting value for your money. While you may not see any obvious problems when looking at the building, many issues are unnoticeable to the untrained eye despite being able to cause major problems down the track. This is where our experienced team can help by examining the entire property and putting together an independent report that states all defects we find on site. Not only does this ensure that you make a fully informed purchase, but because we include the cost of repairing building defects this can help you to negotiate a price with the sellers.

Our Property Price Negotiation Services can save you tens of thousands

  • 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

Don’t just take our word for it, we have had hundreds of satisfied customers: 

Hi Mike and John
I would like to say thank you for your excellent service, I'm very happy and appreciated your work. I will contact you again when I need for another inspection.

Kind Regards

Comprehensive building and pest inspections for any property

inspector viewing buildingAlthough it may not be something you immediately think about, property inspections for your home or building are vital to understanding the condition it’s in and any possible dangers it may pose. This means that when you are thinking of buying a new home, it’s vital that you invest in one of our pre purchase building inspections including a building defect repair costing to ensure you know what you’re getting yourself into. Not only does this give you peace of mind, but it also gives you the ability to better negotiate a price that reflects what the property is truly worth.  Our building inspectors do this by providing you with a comprehensive, un-bias report uncovering any defects and their repair cost that we find throughout the home. When you want an expert opinion, we are the professionals to call.

Defect Report vs Pre-Purchase Report

“We want to buy a house. We’ve seen one we like. But is it sound, will repairs send us broke?”

There’s only one way to find out. And it’s not by asking the vendors agent!

You’ll need a building condition expert. A senior building inspector. You don’t want a building designer or a long winded report on the merits of the house, you want the facts in an easy to read format. And it’s got to be written in plain language, preferably with pictures and it’s got to be easy to understand.

Where do you go and who do you ask?

Let’s look at the two main options:

1. The Pre-Purchase Report

Often prepared by an architect or building designer who will have good knowledge of the design, style and layout merits of the property. He or she will most likely have a background at University and in the studio. This is most probably a good person to comment of the liveability of the house. This report will often document at length the size of the property, number of rooms, orientation, aspect and various room measurements, their uses and outline some of the most obvious faults.

It will be a lengthy report with large photos, plenty of standard clauses and long disclaimer statements you might fall asleep reading. The small print will also ensure you sign away your ability to claim on their so called “we will fix it guarantee” if need be.

But is that what you need? You like the house, you already know that. What you must have are the facts about the building condition, prospective future condition, likely upcoming expenses and an experienced opinion of the costs involved in bringing the house up to a maintainable standard. Right?

So here’s the alternative . . .

2. The Defect Report

Straight to the point. Prepared by an experienced senior registered builder, a person who has spent his life building, pulling apart and rebuilding houses. A professional who is strong on issues like hidden faults, structural condition, site drainage and its impact on building stability, electrical safety, plumbing operation, the Building Code, the Light Timber Framing Code, dodgy workmanship, cheap fix’s, dangerous materials, asbestos, fire hazards, timber rot, pest infestation by termites and borer and 1001 other dead practical things you need to know.

The Defect Report is about what’s wrong, how it happened, how to fix it and how much. It’s an easy to understand document with  photos of every fault and their technical description plus an overall repair cost estimate.

No standard clauses, no “don’t sue me” disclaimers, just a straight to the point factual report prepared by a senior building inspector. And it makes a very effective price reduction negotiating weapon.

Yes, that is what you want.
