Property inspection report emailed within 24 hours

After the property inspection, the building inspector will promptly email you a detailed building report. It will identify any minor or major defects, structural issues, problems and potential problems. It also includes photos and clear explanations, so you have a full picture of what is going on with the property.

Post inspection conversation

Once you have had time to consider the report, your building inspector will contact you to talk about the findings. This gives you the opportunity to ask any questions or clarify anything that you are unsure of.

If the inspection has identified areas of concern, your building inspector will provide you with recommendations as to further investigations or remedial works that are necessary.

Property inspection

Our licensed property inspector will then visit the property to conduct the property inspection, at the arranged time. If you are able to attend, the property inspector will be more than happy to discuss any issues or concerns you have.
