Are you planning to invest in a property? Before you make any decisions, it’s crucial to have a registered builder conduct your pre-purchase building inspection. Here’s why opting for a professional building inspector is your best bet:

1. Expertise and Qualifications

The Australian Standard AS 4349.1 mandates that pre-purchase building inspection reports must be completed by an experienced and qualified individual – a Registered Builder fits this criterion perfectly. Just as you wouldn’t trust anyone but a skilled mechanic with your car, entrust your property inspection to a professional builder.

Our inspectors are all registered builders who have a deep understanding of local building codes and regulations, ensuring that your home meets the latest Australian standards.

2. Government Recognition

In Western Australia, there are no government licensing requirements for building inspectors. However, Registered Builders are recognized by the Building Commission WA, ensuring credibility and reliability in their assessments.

3. Expert Advice on the day

Concerned about the time it takes to receive your inspection report? With a Registered Builder, you’ll receive immediate feedback after the inspection, with the full written report issued on the same day, giving you peace of mind and clarity about the property’s condition.

4. Value for Money

While hiring a registered builder may involve higher upfront costs compared to unlicensed contractors, the long-term value they provide often outweighs the initial investment. Their expertise, reliability, and commitment to quality result in a superior end product that enhances the value of your property.

5. Insurance Coverage

Home Integrity carries $1 million in professional indemnity insurance specifically covering building consultancy work, including pre-purchase inspections, offering you additional peace of mind.

6. No Property Age Limit

Whether the property is brand new or decades old, a thorough inspection is essential. Mistakes and shortcuts can occur at any time, and a Registered Builder can uncover hidden defects, even in seemingly perfect homes.

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.
