Why a Master Builders Association Accreditation is Important!

Elias Oostveen of Home Integrity Building Consultants has become an Accredited Building Consultant with the Master Builders Association in New South Wales. On the east coast, a building inspector is required to be qualified and registered, and to become accredited must meet certain criteria, as well as having a minimum of 10 years’ experience as a registered builder.

An experienced Registered Builder has the background to identify defects, understand the cause of the problems and provide options to remedy the defects.That is certainly why the experienced qualified Building Inspectors at Home Integrity are able to conduct thorough inspections and provide you with a detailed quality report at the end.

Home Integrity Building Consultants are not a franchise. We are an independent Western Australian owned business with over 20 years’ practical experience in the building industry. The extent of our knowledge has been gained from completing building projects across all construction sectors – from basic home renovations and extensions, to apartment and housing developments, right through to major commercial projects.

Home Integrity Building Consultants have the knowledge and expertise to complete your Pre-Purchase Building inspection quickly and efficiently, and will easily highlight any major defects or safety concerns if found during an inspection.

In Western Australia, there is no licensing requirement for building inspectors.If someone is presenting themselves as “licensed” you should be cautious.Check the qualification of the person actually conducting the inspection.Builders in Western Australia are registered with the Building Commission and will also have a Builders Registration Number. Don’t be confused by some of the “licensed” building inspectors around.The “license” may just refer to the ability to operate in a specific location.

All Home Integrity Pre Purchase building inspections are in accordance with the Australian Standard AS 4349.1, giving you the confidence of making an informed decision on one of your most valuable purchases.

A Home Integrity Registered Builder can also inspect and report on spas and swimming pools including safety barriers, arrange retrospective approvals on all structures by local Council and Shires, inspect and report for insurers to take out Home Owner Warranty Builders Warranty Insurance, Handover and Defects Building Inspection Reports, and Building Consulting.

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
