Thanks for the report. I’m very grateful to Rod for the thoroughness of the inspection! His ability to interpret the signs and marks of a house reminded me of Sherlock Holmes.



Hi Mike, Good morning! our conveyancer spoke to vendor depending on your second email. We met them today & they agreed to refund our money. Hope the problem is almost over. Thank you very much for helping us in this issue. You are a genuine gentleman we have ever met. we expect your company service in future.

 Hi Mike,

Thanks for everything yesterday, it was incredibly helpful for us in making a decision.



 Hi Mike, Just wanted to thank you for your report. Well worth while I would be happy to refer you to anyone else I know in need of your expertise . Cheers Adrian


Thank you Mike.
It was good to meet Rod who did an impeccable job and walked us through the house showing us all the findings.
We decided to put an offer right after the inspection and we actually bought it! So thank you very much for your help.
I'll be leaving another feedback on Facebook



Thank you very much Mike for your detailed report. It was absolutely a wise decision that we chose you as our inspector. We will rate you for sure as Rod is very nice man - professional, patient and kind. Please deliver my feedback to him. Yep if we have further questions we will contact Rod.

We appreciate your professional service and thank you.


 Thank you for all of your work on this property report, we really appreciate your time, help and advice. 

We have spoken with the agent to advise him we will not be making an offer, based on the property report. 

The agent was surprised at the amount of work required. He said he would pass our feedback on to the vendors and pursue the other buyers.

Thank you again for your time. We look forward to working with you again soon.


Tina and Anthony 

Mike thankyou so much for the very professional and thorough inspection you carried out for me on my new property. It was a little daunting for me when the builders said the property was ready for the completion inspection. As a single female I really had no idea what I should be looking for. I was relieved to put this in your very experienced hands, and very glad I did, when you found some problems that needed rectifying. The builder has now taken care of these issues and I could not be happier.
Again, thankyou for the peace of mind.

Lyn Coombes

The inspection done by Mike was detailed and information filled. He also gave us face to face feedback, went through the findings in detail and answered all our queries, including tips on what to look for when looking for a home. Because of this inspection we were saved from buying a 'very unhealthy house', as described by Mike.

Many thanks Mike, won't hesitate to use your services again.

Bentleigh East

The building inspection was very comprehensive, the photos and exact detailing of the issues clear and concise. Mike has offered valuable advice and support. So glad I had the inspection done, even new builds have their flaws which need rectifying. I am very pleased with the service offered by Mike, worth every cent and I would highly recommend him to others.

For anyone thinking of engaging these guys, they are great. We dealt with Mike. Short notice no problem. Clear and honest appraisal. Informative report resulted in a shift in our attitude towards the property. Friendly and professional.

Dear MIKE AND JOHN, I have read through other pleople's comments and strongly agree with them. I didn't see Mike, but he was so kind on the phone and arrange a service to me urgently. I talked to John face to face and he explained everything to me in details and patiently. Thanks John again for giving me follow-up advice through e-mail during Easter holiday which gives me a clearer picture of the cost of maintaining the house in the future. I think I have got extra services. Yes, Asbestos, tiny trace of pest, potential safety risk in the house. You have digged out all those hidden evidences. Thank you! wei

Nothing short of professional, knowledgeable and helpful.

John assisted us above and beyond our expectations. The report was concise and thorough well worth their fees. Uncovering in excess of $40,000 worth of termite/structural damage and asbestos to the un-trained eye would have gone un-detected. We withdrew our offer.

Again we would like to thank you for you assistance!

Ben Elliott


Thank you very much. Trev texted and I quote "John was brilliant, professional, scathing of body corp - he was detailed in notes with pics."

I just got off the phone to Trev and he was elated - he has been ill for some time and feeling down about it but he came away from being with you feeling empowered and pleased to have made a contribution quite out of his usual comfort zone. So thanks for that and obviously thanks for the inspection.

I am going to need a supporting report from another building inspector so it is two opinions against the one of the contractor.

Someone to take your report and confirm they have seen it all too and are of the same expert view as you probably better someone independent of you. It's not that there is any doubt about the weight of your report it is more that this may have to start in some forum higher than VCAT where the rules of evidence are more stringent especially given the level of negligence and its' financial impact on the value of the building.

Warm Regards and many thanks again.


 Hi Mike 

It was pleasure to meet with you and deal with you, we have given your details to two people plus our agent, and I will continue to recommend you in the future.   

Thanks again for handling on such short notice. 


Hi Mike,

I would like to write to say that I very much appreciate the quality inspection that you did for us in Mount Waverley. Not only was it on very short notice, but I appreciate that you took the time to make sure that I understood all of the issues very clearly.

We ended up purchasing the property, largely from the confidence that your inspection gave us, it was invaluable. Although the property had some issues we knew exactly what we were in for.

Thanks again and I wish you all the best!


Dave and Geraldine

We feel very comfortable in whatever decision we choose to make in deciding whether to purchase this house or not with the advice we have received from you. We now know what needs to be done to make this house our palace! Thank you. We will highly recommend you to friends that are looking to buy property.

Thank you.

Hi Mike and John,
Thank you for conducting the building inspection for the property I am interested in.
The service and professionalism was outstanding and the verbal explanations of what work is required from John were very clear and helpful. It made my decision to go ahead much easier and gave me complete peace of mind.

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.

Hi John,

Thank you for coming out and doing such a great and detailed inspection on our new property. Your expert advice on the defects of our home is a great help to us. We will now take your advice and go ahead with fixing the place up!

Thanks, Vivian


Thank you Mike for your professionalism, expertise and ability to arrange inspection on such short notice. We have received a detailed report and very valuable and honest advise that will help us make an informed decision.

Jane Agirtan

Being first homebuyers we were a little in the dark about purchasing a house and your ability to do the inspection at such short notice and produce a report that was easy to understand made life a lot easier. We are grateful we spent the $595, so that we didn't make the mistake of purchasing a home that to us looked great, but to the trained building inspector had many issues.
Thank you so much Mike for all your friendly & helpful advice.

Hi Mike,

Thanks a lot again.

Professional building inspection, excellent service and helpful report! Worth the money! Thanks a lot!




The inspection carried out by John was not for the purchase of a prospective property but, to give us an insight in to some issues we had with our home that was built 13yrs ago. John was able to give us an experts opinion and set our minds at ease. He left us with a few things we will do to ensure our house stays in good condition. I highly recommend Building Masters Solutions to any one who has doubts about their existing property, or looking at buying another property.

Dear Mike & Trevor,

May I thank you both for your professional, comprehensive, and well priced service. My Wife and I were amazed at the level of service that we received and the time taken at the property to identify a range of defects and faults. We have decided to purchase the property, however we will use this list to work through and improve the home as we go.

I will certainly recommend you to others.

Kind regards

Mount Eliza

Thank you very much John, you have saved our family from a very expensive mistake. Your service has been very prompt, thorough and professional.

Best regards


Thank you for your thorough report John. It has given me great peace of mind going to auction this weekend!

Lady Rose Crescent, Sydenham

Hi Mike

We are very grateful and appreciative of your professionalism, knowledge and expertise. Added to that is your personal touch in your dealings with us. We appreciated the discussions on site that you had with us, and the comprehensive and easy-to-follow report that came just a couple of hours thereafter. As our contract was subject to just the building and pest inspection, your prompt service made it easy for us to be well within our timeframe. We will most definitely recommend you to family and friends who may need the service in the future.

Best regards

Paul and Fay

Hi Mike,
Luke and I just wanted to say thank you for the inspection you conducted today at a property we are looking at in Doreen. You service was fantastic, we really appreciated the detail that went in to your report and the time you spent with my dad at the inspection explaining everything to him and then again to me on the phone. Your report has given us an insight in to the true condition of the property and what needs to be fixed. We would certainly recommend your services to our family and friends.
Kind regards,
Claire & Luke

$600 building inspection saved me $ 600000 in heartache. The biggest ever thank you to Mike. I recently viewed an older weatherboard property presented beautifully on a realestate website and immediately fell in love with it. It seemed to be just what I was looking for back in Victoria. I couldn't look at the property myself living in the NT and the home was for auction. I engaged in negotiations with the agent to purchase before auction and settled on an agreeable price subject to a building /pest inspection. I chose Mike from a general google search, received a very reasonable quote for service, almost immediately and a follow up text message the same day. I spoke to him directly explaining my situation, I live interstate, I want the property as a rental for 2 years and then to resettle and live in it and I needed the inspection immediately to have the property taken off the market for my sole purchase. He gave me excellent advice pre any contract signing for the property, reassured me he would be doing an extensive check knowing I wanted to tenant it, organised with the agent to do the inspection the following day, rang me immediately post inspection with a detailed verbal report in easily comprehended terms and then provided an extensive written report with corresponding photographs that same evening. Fortunately I was able to withdraw immediately from what would have been a disastrous purchase and notify my conveyancer of the same ( saving me further expense). Mikes expertise was obvious, communication timely and honest and advice sound. His professional standards are to be applauded and I would recommend without hesitation that he be used as a valuable asset in the lead up to any property purchase. Thanks again Mike.
