Building Inspections and Reports

What a Building Inspection and Report involves

When we conduct an inspection, everything is taken care of for you.

That means we;

  • arrange access with the real estate agent (but never disclose what we find to them, unless approved to do so)
  • spend 1-2 hours assessing and documenting the property’s condition (including photos),
  • phone you that same day after the inspection, or meet on site to talk through what we’ve found and
  • send you a fully comprehensive, easy to follow report the next business day.

We will never re-sell your report to another buyer you can be SURE of that.

We also do Pest Inspections

Your Building Inspection can be done on its own or you can choose to combine it with a Pest Inspection for better value, and also a Compliance Report if you want to be sure the property has all its required council approvals.

Choose how detailed you want your Building Inspection and report to be 

To suit your budget and inspection needs we offer three levels of building assessment, Fundamentals and Peace of Mind.

  • In Fundamentals you receive a comprehensive assessment of the property’s fundamental structures, fixtures and maintenance.
  • The Peace of Mind inspection goes further, assessing the working condition of electrical appliances and power points on top of the fundamentals building inspection (but not the wiring – for that you’ll need an Electrician).
  • If you want even more detail in addition to your choice from above. you can ask us to include individual room and utility space (fridge cavity) measurements . We can also offer a general pest assessment for other pests like Possums, Rodents, Ants & Cockroachs. Call 1300 767 741 for more details on this service.

As well as everything covered by the Fundamentals building inspection, the Peace of Mind inspection tests everything on the property that is powered by electricity by running it through a normal cycle.

“Bruce and the team were professional from the start. Appreciated the time, effort and detail that Bruce took to carry out the inspections, also appreciated the ongoing communication. The report was very detailed. Would highly recommend Surety Property!!”

Les Ison, South Coast Buyer

“Thank you again for everything you’ve done to help us, and for your understanding and patience with the constant rescheduling. And a big thank you to Brendan for taking the time to explain everything to us – I honestly could’ve listened to him all day long!
When I started looking for a property inspection company, I asked everyone I could think of, then went on Google and did some homework. We narrowed it down to three companies, and I called you first because 1.) you had the best reviews and 2.) the sample report was very impressive.

That first conversation I had with you set the standard for the rest of the bunch. You took the time to listen and discuss what we were looking for and what our concerns were, which no one else did. In fact, I only rang one other company and quickly decided I wasn’t even going to waste my time ringing the third as I’d already made up my mind.

In terms of price, while Surety charges more than others, I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for. The inspection and report were absolutely worth every dollar (and probably more). Brendan picked up on issues we never even thought of, and not only detailed them with photos, but got our builder to agree to fix them with no argument. That was particularly impressive, especially considering the builder. And the report – no one else puts that level of effort into their reports. Surety’s reports should be an industry standard.

Again, thank you so very much for everything, and we wish you and Brendan all the best. Next time we buy (not build, learned that lesson), we’re coming straight to Surety again, absolutely no question about that.”
