Tips for Finding the Right Building Inspector!

Finding the right building inspector is important. Spending money now to ensure your new home is defect-free could mean saving several thousands (or tens of thousands) later. Unfortunately in Perth, Western Australia, over 40% of building inspectors listed on Google are uninsured and are not registered builders. This means your approach to finding the right building inspector should be considered carefully. This will help you make the right choice when choosing a building inspector.
When assessing different building inspection companies use this checklist, ask the right questions, and find the best building inspector for the job.

Hi there, 

We see you have added an Electrical, Plumbing and Gas inspection (EPG) with a Pre-Settlement inspection. 

Please note these are very similar inspections, just performed at different times. The EPG occurs during your pre-purchase inspection, while the Pre-Settlement occurs 5-7 days before settlement. 

If you require both please proceed to check out. Alternatively, remove one and continue.

If you would like further information, please call our office before proceeding to check out on (08) 6184 5624
