Can’t speak highly enough of the Service Chris offered. He was extremely professional and accommodating to my needs. When there was an issue he felt I needed additional professional information on he was able to provide me with a list of people to speak with and spoke with them also to clearly explain the issues. He was prompt and always willing to go the extra mile. I would not hesitate to recommend him or use his services again.

I can’t imagine a better building inspector than Chris Westcott of Hobart Building Inspectors. Chris was totally professional at every level and his inspection report covered more than everything we needed to make an informed decision on a property we were interested in. I can’t recommend Chris highly enough.

Chris was an absolute professional to deal with when we were purchasing a property from interstate. He patiently explained to me how to go about about the building clause when I had no idea. His advice was fantastic. Chris attended the property we wanted to buy at very short notice and provided a detailed report with photos within hours. He paid attention to detail and flagged anything which was a potential issue, recommending we get it checked further. Luckily for us, there were no issues but we appreciated Chris helping us through the process and giving us piece of mind. We highly recommend Chris and would not hesitate to use him again in the future.

Chris did a great job for us on a pre-purchase inspection. Clearly he has a great eye for detail and pointed out a lot of small things you would easily miss.
