Our building inspectors Melbourne can prepare a detailed and accurate cost estimate report on any renovation, building or repair work.
Building Inspection reports are different from cost estimate reports when dealing with the rectification of defects. Prices for remedial works should not be attached to the Building Inspection Report found during a pre-purchase inspection.
Why? – For transparency.
- It is unfair and inaccurate to give an estimate to you the client without further detailed investigation and analysis of a particular defect. A cost estimate report enables us to fully calculate and convey to you the nature of the defect before remedial actions are agreed.
- In the Australian Standard for pre purchase inspections, there is a specific recommendation against the practice of inclusion of prices on the inspection report.
- The trades-people assigned to undertake the remedial works will provide the real cost of the actual job, and there can be significant differences depending on the difficulty and scope of the job.
A Cost Estimate Report is a special purpose document for when accurate and detailed costings are required for remedial or additional building work.
Talk to our experienced building inspector to provide itemised cost estimates based on our deep industry knowledge of pricing works and trade experience.
