Building inspections

A pre-purchase building inspection is a top-to-bottom, non-invasive visual inspection of a property. The inspection is to identify any significant defects, overdue maintenance, possible future problems, poor building work or other areas of concern.

 

We offer three building inspection packages: Premium, Gold or Platinum. For details and pricing click here. To book our services click here

Our process

At Buysafe Home Inspections Ltd, we understand that buying or selling a property can be stressful. That's why we have a simple and transparent process to make things easier for you.

On arriving at the property, our inspection begins at the external front left corner of the home. From there we continue to inspect all side elevations, including the base/foundations, cladding, joinery, eaves, spouting, down-piping and roofing/flashings. We assess the current condition and any risk factors relating to the property. Our findings are entered via smartphone into the latest software, generating a comprehensive detailed report with photos, which is emailed directly to the client.

 

The interior process is the same: starting at the front entrance, we continue in a leftwards direction, carrying out room-to-room inspections. We also inspect the ceiling space and the level of insulation that is in place. Lastly, we perform a moisture scan around all joinery (including wet areas) using the latest technology spot-scanning device.

 

Our inspection also covers fences, retaining walls, driveways/paths, ground-level risks, drainage risks and carports and garages.  Our reports are very clear and are presented with colour photos to help understand any areas of concern.
