Property and Pest inspections Melbourne

Buying a house is one of the biggest purchases in your life so you really need to get it right the first time. A pre-purchase house inspection from an experienced building inspector can help you make a qualified and knowledgable decision. ‘Cover-ups’ in properties for sale are one of the main ways we can save you a lot of time, money and problems when buying a home or investment property. Our house inspections reveal  common tricks that vendors do to conceal home repair problems.

Your Property Inspection Report will identify both major and minor faults for you before you make a decision about  buying the property. Our building inspections show you what parts of the property are in sound good condition and what areas require property repairs or replacement. Every council and area have different building codes and standards so we cannot guarantee your potential property purchase will abide by these codes but we can provide specialist guidance about any major or minor building faults your property may have. Our building inspection services recognize and report on evidence of timber pest activity and/or damage produced by termites and borers.

Our termites and borers inspections look for any indication of any prior timber pest contamination or existing conditions that can make the property more receptive to timber pests. For instance timbers in contact with the soil and excessive moisture sources, such as leaks from showers and any plumbing defects. Safe and Sound  building inspectors use the latest tools and technologies to assist us in identifying Termites. House inspections are an indispensable tool for pre-purchase.
