We are confident with providing you the most thorough inspection you can get on the market, and our staff will spend enough time with you to make sure all the questions or concerns you might have are answered.

Why Should You Perform a Inspection with us?

Our friendly team will:

  • Discuss with you and organise a suitable appointment time
  • Organise with the tenant for access to the property if need be
  • Notify and remind you of the time and day of the appointment so that you can attend
  • Email you digital special purpose reports containing photos within 24 hours

The InspectIt Homes team will be looking for a lot of different things and will essentially tip each other off whenever they find an area of concern. This is why you need to have specialist eyes on the job, so that the house inspection is thorough. Provided there’s enough access, our team will look at the following areas of the property:

  • The exterior of the house
  • The interior
  • Carport and/or garage
  • Driveways, fences, and pathways
  • Out building like granny flats etc.
  • The Sub floor between the ground and the bottom
  • Retaining and structural walls
  • Ceiling space &
  • Roof inspections

Besides of our quality services, here are 4 reasons why you need a professional building inspection:

Health risks

External variables can change the shape and structure of buildings over time. If houses that contain asbestos are left unmanaged for several years, it could expose the residents to toxic chemicals. Similarly, properties built before 1978 might have lead based paint, and exposure to this can lead to high blood pressure, headaches, joint pains, and other health issues.

Your future property could also be rendered uninhabitable if it’s infested with both insects, termites and vermin. This problem is quite hard to identify at first sight. However, our house inspectors are guaranteed to identify any infestation.

We also have strict quality controls regarding water in your future property. We will examine the age and quality of piping in the property, and recommend within our special purpose reports if any of the parts need to be replaced.

Structural Defects

Dampness is one of the most common problem for buildings. It leaves a distinctive odour, and is rather unhygienic. Places exposed to a lot of moisture, such as where flooding has occurred or around leaks in pipes, roofs and windows usually cause mould to grow. Mould is responsible for many respiratory conditions, which could affect the residents of the property.

Potential for Accidents

Dilapidated construction work is not always obvious to the eye on the exterior parts of a property. But with our experience in the industry, we report all of the building work that is deemed below the recommended quality check level.

The stairs to your home should always be safe and reliable for all users. Uneven edges and inconsistent stair steps can cause tripping. We will also look into the structure of the stairs and give you a full report.

Faulty electrics can cause serious injury or even death to visitors or residents of the property. We take this very seriously, and we will do our due diligence to notify you if there’s any potential threat.

Pool Safety Inspections

If you require pool and pump inspection on your property or even a pool fence safety inspection, ensure you mention it when booking, so that we can organise for this inspection to be done as the house inspection is conducted.

Currently, all spa and pool fences have to be certified by a pool fence inspector when renting or selling property; otherwise, you will be required to have the spa or pool fence certified within a 5 year period. Keep in mind that the safety of your family and other children is paramount, and that children are usually clever at coming up with new ways to access the pool.

Each year, there are many injury cases and drowning and we want to take part in reducing this number. Having your pool inspected regularly and rectifying the areas of concern will help keep your pool at the highest safety standards. Moreover, it’s the responsibility of the pool owner to keep their pool fence in compliance with the current regulations.

Although spas and pools are great deal of fun, they can be a very expensive problem whenever they are not operating as they should. Water leaks could translate into huge damages around the property, and pump failure could be very costly. It’s therefore recommended that you get a licensed plumber of pool builder to inspect the spa, pool, pump etc. and report their condition.

Pest and Termite Inspection

Our professional termite inspectors are highly trained to conduct pest inspection, and they can take up to one hour on site. The pest and termite inspectors can also help you with the required treatments and upgrades as necessary, in order to minimize the risk on the property.

Valuation of the Property

Do you need property valuation services? We can organize for your property valuation with a professional company, which can be performed at the same time as the house and pest inspection to save on time.

Non-Compliant or Unapproved Construction

Numerous properties have unmanaged extensions that have been carried out without the required permission. In such cases, official standards and guidelines might not have been upheld. If you are aware of such an activity, it can be used as a great bargaining tool as the potential buyer. Our inspection and reporting services are there to make you aware of such kinds of work, which might not even be complete.

What Else is Included in the Official Report?

Photographs of all the major issues around the property will be included, since they tell their own story. To minimize wastage, pre-purchase building and pest inspections should be booked for the same time. In general, a building inspection will last a few hours, depending on the size and the condition of the property.

The purchaser is often required to obtain building and pest reports and follow up inspections from landscapers, engineers, arborists, etc. so that they can obtain a formal scope of the construction work, the condition of the property. All of our inspectors are licensed with the QBCC to operate within Brisbane and the surrounding areas.

Unable to make it to the Inspection? No problem.

When the building and pest inspection is complete, our inspectors will call you, and they will walk you through all their findings. Upon receiving your report, you will essentially have the access to the mobile numbers of our inspectors, and you can reach them should any queries arise.
