+ Do you do termite inspections?
If anything it’s more important to have the house inspected before it’s five years old so that any defects can be rectified before the builders warranty expires.
+ What if a scheduled inspection cannot be carried out?
If a scheduled inspection is cancelled or postponed less than 24 hours prior to the appointed time we will invoice the full quoted price. However, if an inspection is scheduled and access is not available, a $150 call our fee will apply to re-visit the site.
+Do you provide a guarantee?
We do not offer a fixed guarantee but our services are covered by professional indemnity insurance in case of negligence.
+Can I be present during the inspection?
We encourage you to be present during the inspection if possible as you will gain a better understanding of the process and of the report, and we can also provide you with an on the stop verbal run down on the property.
+Do you inspect the sub-floor space?
Yes if there is unimpeded access to the sub floor space. Please note that we require advance notification if a sub floor inspection is required.
+ Do you inspect the roof space?
If possible and depending on the type of inspection. Australian Standards for property inspections state that the roof must be accessible with a 3.3 metre ladder and that there must be a minimum clearance of 600 millimetres in the roof space.
+ How long does the inspection take?
It depends on the size of the property, but it can be as little as one hour for a small apartment or up to three or four hours for a large house.
