Pre-Purchase Building Inspections

Pre-purchase inspections are designed to provide prospective property purchasers with competent advice on the condition of the property they are considering purchasing. Building Inspection Specialists comprehensive reports cover 100’s of inspection points, thereby giving you insight into the likely maintenance issues and likely future problems.

Scope of works

The scope of works explains in detail the procedures, processes and recommendations that we suggest be applied to your individual building issue. It also allows you to understand the steps taken in remediating your building environment. A list of areas that require repair or maintenance prior to carrying out the remedial works will also be incorporated. In addition to this, a quotation for the cost of performing the building remediation will be included.

Pest inspections

Building Inspection Specialists pest inspectors will uncover any visible termite damage and identify the conditions that are likely to attract termites.



Asbestos Reports

Asbestos is a dangerous fiberous material that was used heavily in construction in the 1970’s. If your house was constructed before the 1990’s it may contain asbestos materials. Building Inspection Specialists can perform an asbestos inspection to determine if asbestos is present in your home, as well as determine if the asbestos in your home needs to be removed. This is to ensure you and your family are not at risk of exposure to this dangerous material.

Insurance / defects reports

This report is used to ensure that the builders of your new home have fully completed the job before the handover. It will list any defects or major structural problems that may still exist at the completion of building. Do not hand over another dollar to your builders until you get your own independent inspections done.

Defect Inspections are conducted on properties and are designed to provide the client with a list of faults and defects, or non compliance with the relevant building codes at the time of construction. A building or an element can become defective through age or lack of maintenance and professional advice should be obtained to ensure that replacement or works undertaken are using materials and current systems of application that are appropriate to the building. A professional inspection and report provides accurate information on defects, as well as maintenance items that require attention so that remedial works are undertaken to a suitable standard.

Insurance Assessment Inspections

Covers a wide range of inspections including:

  • Flood Damage
  • Accidental Damage reports
  • Storm Damage
  • Fire Damage

Our Insurance Assessment Inspections document all damages with photographic evidence, materials used and includes a dangerous materials registry.
Any structural components that have been damaged can be assessed for immediate faults and danger. The structural integrity of a building can be established and necessary action can be taken immediately..


Pre-listing inspections

Pre-Auction Inspection
Once the hammer is down it’s too late to get a building and pest inspection. Let us inspect the property before you bid! If you have concerns about outlaying money for properties you may not end up purchasing, we suggest you start off with a building report first. If that is positive, proceed to a Timber Pest Inspection.

Pre-Sale Inspection
Don’t wait until a purchaser requests an inspection to learn about the defects in your home. Have a Pre-Sale Inspection done on your property before you even list it. Avoid those costly surprises.

After B.I.S has inspected your property, you can:

  • Alleviate inspectors and agents coming through your house every time you have an interested buyer.
  • Address the areas that require rectification.
  • Have time to correct any areas of concern at your leisure.
  • Negotiate a fair price.
  • Prevent the potential for buyers to have second thoughts by reading a report they have commissioned.
  • Be put on the spot with unrealistic prices to fix them which you have not had time to investigate.
  • Prevent the delay of the sale from having to fix items at the last minute.

So why not be completely upfront at the start and save valuable time. Have your home fully inspected and ready for sale by displaying our pre-inspected sign on the estate agent’s board. People passing by will be interested and impressed with your honesty.

Home Owner Warranty Inspections/ Owner Builder Warranty InspectionsThe Home Building Act 1989 states that an Owner Builder must provide Home Warranty Insurance if selling within 6 years of completion of the project. This insurance is required where a seller who has constructed, extended or renovated a building under an Owner Builder icence and where the contract value of the whole project (labour & material) was more than $12,000.
