Buying a house can be a stressful process. A pre purchase house inspection from a qualified building inspector can help you ease that stress. ‘Cover-ups’ in houses for sale are one of those uncertainties. Our house inspections uncover all the tricks that vendors do to hide defective problems.
During a house inspection, a Property Report will identify both major and minor defects in any house. Our building inspections check that the building conforms to the relevant building codes and standards and give specialist advice regarding any major problems. We will identify and report on evidence of timber pest activity and/or damage caused by termites, borers or fungal decay. Our termite inspections look for evidence of any previous timber pest problem or conditions that make the property more susceptible to timber pests. For example timbers in contact with the ground and excessive moisture sources, such as leaks from showers and any plumbing defects. Our building inspectors also use the Termatrac T3i to assist us in identifying Termites. The Termatrac T3i is the most advanced termite detection device for property inspections in the world. House inspections are an essential tool pre purchase. During our house inspections we look for termites, asbestos and defective cover-ups.
Our building inspectors are fully registered builders with years of experience and will give you peace of mind.
We offer building advice whereby we visit you at your home or office to discuss your specific questions. Whether you are about to undertake a renovation or wish to add an extension on your house, we can assist you with all your questions and concerns.

Buying a New Home? Ensure a Quality Investment with the Help of a Melbourne Building Inspection Company
Buying a house is expensive. From the down payment to the transfer fees to any improvement you want or need to make before you can move in, it stands to reason that purchasing a home is one of the more significant investments that the average person makes in their lifetime. In this maze of costs and steps, it’s all too easy to overlook or skip one of the most critical stages of the entire process: the building inspection. After all, the house looks perfect, and the buyer seems trustworthy. Why shouldn’t you trust them? Why shouldn’t you forego the inspection and use that money to cover improvements, furniture purchases or moving costs?
Why You Should Hire a Building Inspector
As tempting as it might be to forget about the inspection and move forward with purchasing your home, there is a long list of reasons that you should rethink that strategy. Hiring a building inspector, in the grand scheme of things, is a small investment. If you have already decided that you can afford to buy a house, then paying for an inspection is probably not going to break the bank.
In return for that investment, though, you will get something extremely valuable: peace of mind. The fact is that you can never be sure that a home is free of defects or problems. Yes, the previous owners might be perfectly lovely, and sure, the house might look flawless. However, even the most pristine looking homes can have flaws. There might be a crack in the foundation. The house could contain shoddy electrical work that is not compliant with building codes. There could be a termite infestation that you can’t see visual signs of yet because it’s in the early stages. You never know what’s hiding out of sight in a house. Hiring a building inspection company will tell you things that the naked eye can’t see and that sellers won’t typically reveal.
Choosing Melbourne House Check for Your Melbourne Building Inspections
At Melbourne House Check, we provide a building inspection service geared towards providing buyers with sound peace of mind. Before you commit to purchasing a house, and certainly before you put down any money, give us a call. We will check every aspect of the property, from the foundation to the roof, to ensure that it is structurally sound and fully compliant with all relevant building codes, regulations, and Australian Standards. If there are termites, electrical faults, foundation problems or other issues, you can trust that we will find them.
Simply put, our building inspections in Melbourne are designed to help you make the correct decision before you buy a property. Again, purchasing a house is a significant investment and a momentous decision that will impact every facet of your life. Make sure you are fully informed by calling Melbourne House Check for an inspection before you buy.
