What we examine in a Building and Pest Inspection
Our inspectors are selected due to their vast experience, their ability and their thoroughness. Our inspectors examine all of the relevant components of the home you are looking to purchase and then produce a report that covers all of the findings. The typical inspection will last between two to three hours. We advise that you are present for the inspection so that the inspector can deliver an explanation of the findings and answer any questions that you have. If the inspector discovers any problems it will make a lot more sense to you if they can point them out to you in person and take you through the consequences. This will make a lot more sense than reading about this in the report and looking at the photos provided.
The inspector will identify:
- whether the problem is a major defect, safety issue or minor defect
- which items will need replacing and which should be serviced or repaired
- items that are in a suitable condition but should be monitored closely
We will even tell you about any routine maintenance that should be performed. This can be a great help, especially if you are a first-time homebuyer.
