Chris, our local building inspector, knows what it's like to buy a family home or investment property. It can be an incredibly stressful experience, which is why he is here to help. When he is contracted to do an inspection, he always approaches the job as if he is buying the house himself, so you can be sure he’ll leave no stone—or floorboard—unturned.

Do you really know whether the property you are looking to buy is structurally sound, or a nightmare, hiding future repair job, after repair job? Chris will use the latest technology in inspection tools such as thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, and aerial drone property inspections plus the wealth of knowledge he has accumulated through years of building houses across Tasmania when inspecting your future property.

Chris our building inspector, doesn't leave a property until we are 100% happy that we can provide you, our clients, with a detailed professional pre-purchase building report.

The pre-purchase reports also comply with the scope of the relevant Australian Standard, AS 4349.1.

 Pre-purchase building inspection reports costs

Inspection costs depend on location and the size( sqm.) of the buildings.

Our reports are usually emailed to you within 24 hours of the house inspection, but if required, we can get them to you on the same day—just let us know.

Chris was recommended to us and so glad we contacted him! Chris was able to meet our tight deadline for a purchase inspection, arrived on time and thoroughly went through the property. This included going into the roof space/ceiling cavity, as well as under the house. He provided a comprehensive report within days and followed it up with a phone call to ensure we understood the outcome. We would definitely recommend him.

Chris provided a pre-purchase inspection and managed to save us from a potentially very costly nightmare of a purchase. He went above and beyond to provide us with advice and a quality report. Do not be fooled by going with a buidling inspector the real estates want you to choose. I have already asked Chris to inspect our next potential purchase and will not heistate to call upon his services again in the future.
