We are Qualified Building Inspectors in Melbourne

SafeHome Inspections have been in the pre-purchase building inspection service in Melbourne since 2004. When you use our services, you’re getting a building inspector who has 14 years experience in the building inspection services to accurately advise you on the property’s condition.

Not all persons doing pre-purchase building inspections are qualified

They don’t need to be, but we are. Peter has a Diploma in Building Surveying which is the only qualification recognised by the Victorian Building Authority. If your house inspector in Melbourne does not have a Diploma or Degree in Building Surveying then he can not claim he is a qualified building inspector. Some say they a certified house inspectors but this is obtained by completing a 2 day course with a company in NSW and is not recognised by the Building Act 1993.

Recognised and Insured Building Inspectors in Melbourne

SafeHome Building Inspections is a fully registered Australian company.

We are also members of the Master Builders Association of Victoria.  

We carry professional indemnity insurance to the amount of $1,000,000.

In addition the director of SafeHome Building Inspections, is a qualified building inspector (Diploma of Building Surveying) and timber pest inspector.

Our 14 years experience, combined with our training in the detection and reporting of building defects and our dedication to customer service, guarantees that you will be in an informed position before you buy. We provide you with real detail – we photograph defects for the building inspection report, and explain whether they are major defects, minor defects or safety hazards.  

We state what is required to have the building defects assessed of rectified.

SafeHome assisted in the development of a software program for qualified building and house inspectors in Melbourne to use in the field. It contains over 1000 potential defects that each inspector must assess before completing the inspection. This is a great indicator of how committed we are to the building inspection profession – in other words we love our job.
