Melbourne House Check conduct house inspections Melbourne wide. We are a team of builders that are registered and insured and we are qualified to thoroughly assess the condition of houses.
Our house inspections consider the structural elements of the house including the roof exterior, roof space, the subfloor and the entire site of the property. We document all major and minor defects in a professional property report in order for you to make an informed decision prior to purchase.
Our Four W reporting method – Our reporting method is extremely thorough whereby we tell you the following:
1. What the defect is.
2. Where the defect is.
3. What the likely consequences will be if the defect is not repaired.
4. Who is the suitable trade’s person that is required to rectify it.
We call this the four W method and we are proud that it provides you with a thorough assessment of each problem. After the house inspection we can also estimate the cost of rectification of any defects if requested.
