Building Inspections Explained

Building Inspection and Property Reports (or a Pre Purchase Building Inspection for newly constructed homes) are comprehensive reports that comments on structural damage, conditions conducive to structural damage, as well as any minor defects or safety hazards.

The written report will also highlight any areas the inspector was unable to access on the day of the property inspection, or on the specific inspection time. Detailed photos may show building defects and/or areas of concern that the inspector has noticed in the course of the building inspection. View our gallery from previous inspections to see some of our findings.

The Building Inspection Report will contain a description of the property and the materials used in the construction of the building, and is typically conducted prior to the purchase of a property. In fact, the QBCC recommends making it a condition of your contract that you are satisfied with the outcome of your inspection. 

Timber Pest Inspections Explained 

When looking to purchase a new property in Australia, it’s important to get a timber pest inspection by a certified pest inspector to check for any termite activity or damage.

Termites tend to avoid open air and bright lights, and as a result, their colonies are typically underground, out of sight or within roof voids. For this reason, it’s important to get a professional combined building and pest inspections to detect termite damage or conditions conducive to termites. Our inspections will give you full understanding of the affected property and a detailed report of the damage. 

Our pest and termite inspections involve a visual inspection process of the readily accessible areas of the property for evidence of termite activity and/or termite workings or other minor damage. The areas that will be inspected include the interior and exterior of the building as well as accessible roof cavities and subfloor areas. The findings of the inspection will then be noted in your pest report which will be issued via email the following morning, including any recommendations for a suitable termite treatment plan.

We service the entire Wide Bay region, including Bundaberg, Maryborough, Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) and Gympie. Contact Inspect My Home's office team today for your building and pest inspection needs.

After Your Building & Pest Inspection

You have received your report, now what?

After your inspection, the building report will highlight any defects to the property and their urgency. It will also indicate any conditions conducive to structural defects.

Our reports are easy to follow, highly detailed and will include recommendations to help you make an informed decision on your property. If you are unable to attend the inspection or are unsure about something in the report, contact your Wide Bay inspector immediately for clarification before making any decisions.

Here are some basic tips on what to do once you've received your report:

The great majority of buildings we inspect have faults to some degree. This should not necessarily deter you from purchasing a property. The final decision is up to you and depends on your individual circumstances. Our reports provide a detailed description of the property and any faults found, to equip you with the facts and allow you to make an informed decision. View a selection of sample reports from various inspections.
