Professional House Inspector and Qualified Builder - Why Inspect?
Obviously, it's best to know what you're getting into before you invest in a property. However, few of us have the technical knowhow to spot potential problems in something as complex as a house.
Andrew is a registered builder and building inspector with years of experience. This experience allows him to accurately report on the condition of your intended purchase and in simple terms explain what needs to be done.
It is our responsibility to independently and without bias expertly provide this information, so that you can buy with confidence.
The Pre-Purchase Inspection Report
You will receive a detailed and comprehensive document completed in accordance with the Australian Standard that dissects the house into all the various building components - describing the condition of each area and whether it requires attention. Our reports also contain a glossary of technical terms.
