Building and Pest Inspections 1300 776 072 Book an Inspection

What the experts say

Buyers’ advocates, real estate agents, property journalists and consumer affairs lawyers agree: you’d be crazy to buy a property without commissioning a building inspection first.

“The best money that people can spend is on a building inspection. People stretch themselves to buy the property they want and sometimes find they then need to spend another $60,000 fixing it.”
– Leonard Teplin, Collins Simms Real Estate, Clifton Hill.
(From “Agent’s tip”, Sunday Herald Sun, March 18 2008)

“It’s a very sensible idea to do your due diligence and have the property inspected by a qualified person prior to purchase. The inspections do cost a couple of hundred dollars but as you are spending a couple of hundred thousand on the home it will be money well spent.”
– John Grabyn, president, Real Estate Institute of Victoria.

“A building inspection can identify cosmetic improvements covering up faults not picked up by the untrained eye.”
– Dr Claire Noone, director, Consumer Affairs Victoria.
