Building Inspections Melbourne – Cost of Inspections

When deciding on a building inspection company in Melbourne to assist you in your purchase please be aware that in Victoria some businesses carrying out pre-purchase building inspections are NOT qualified building inspectors as per the Building Act 1993.  You need to have successfully completed a diploma or degree in building surveying to be recognised as a qualified building inspector. You also don’t need to be insured in case they miss something.  

My advice to to request qualifications in writing, a copy of a report and a copy of their insurance certificate, 

You have come to the right building inspection business if you want the following:

  • An Inspector who has been doing pre-purchase building inspections for 14 years.
  • A qualified Building Inspector – Diploma of Building Surveying.
  • A qualified pest Inspector.
  • An Inspector with the latest Thermal imaging Equipment and Termite Detection radar.
  • An inspector who checks all walls for damp using moisture meters.
  • An inspector who is a Member of the Master Builders Association.

  • A detailed 80-100 page reports for a building and pest inspection report with photographs.
