Defects found upon inspection that need addressing immediately.

Safety hazards that require urgent attention.

Superficial defects that are classed as normal maintenance.

Pest inspections

For complete peace of mind before buying a home, our building inspections can also be combined with pest inspections to look for signs of infestations.

Our inspectors are fully licensed builders

To ensure you are getting comprehensive and accurate information, you’ll want your investment checked by someone with the right experience. Here in South Australia, formal qualifications aren’t required to conduct a building inspection. This may mean a person without enough information on the building process is assessing a property on your behalf.

Before getting quotes, ask about the qualifications they hold. Builders will have the insider knowledge required to check those problem areas and ensure the construction is of a high standard.

Our pre-purchase inspections are the best and most reliable in the Adelaide region, with a team who have a keen eye for the finer details and who will never inform the home’s agent of the results of the report. We make it our mission to cover every inch of the property we are inspecting using only the latest technology and a wealth of experience and knowledge. Our building and pest inspectors know exactly what to look for and how defects have come about.

A trusted building advisor for sellers

Are you considering selling your property? Our professional inspectors aren’t just helpful for buyers; they can also prepare current owners to ensure they get a fair price. Acting as your trusted building advisors, we can attend your current property and give you a list of any underlying issues that may hold up a sale for potential buyers.

Getting professional insight from experienced builders allows you to enter the selling process with reasonable expectations regarding price. As an independent and objective party, we’ll evaluate the property’s condition in a methodical manner and offer any advice in terms of further action. For some, this may be lowering the asking price to match the work needed on the property.  Some sellers may choose to complete some repairs before listing their property to improve chances of a higher selling price later.

What our clients say about us

“Thanks for the reports. We hadn’t noticed the uneven floors and never imagined what could be (or not be!) under the house. I will be in contact again soon for another inspection. By the way, as suggested I’ve just liked your company on Facebook.”

Home Inspection FAQ's

  • Is a Building Inspection worth it?
    YES! Organising a pre purchase building inspection is a great idea. You can use your report to determine what issues the property has prior to purchase or to bid with confidence at auction time.
  • What is a Pre Purchase Inspection?
    A pre purchase building or building and pest inspection is a visual inspection capturing all major and minor defects, safety hazards and termites to give you a understanding of the condition of the property prior to purchase.
  • Do you need a qualification to be a Building Inspector in SA?
    Short answer is NO! Anyone can conduct a building inspection in Adelaide. This is why it’s super important to ask your building inspector if they have a class 1-10 building supervisors licence along with professional indemnity and public liability insurance as a minimum.
  • When should I get a Building Inspection?
    In South Australia your cooling off period is only 48 hours from when you receive your Form 1. It’s generally best practice to get your building and pest inspection done in this time so you are aware of any potential problems, defects or even termites and can move forward with confidence in the purchase of the property.
  • How much does a Building Inspection cost in SA?
    A pre purchase or pre auction building inspection price depends on a few things; the service, the location, and the size of the property. There is no one set price. On average a small unit or apartment within the metropolitan suburbs of Adelaide will cost you around $400-$450 for a building inspection only. A family home, 3 or 4 bedrooms can be anywhere from $495 - $850. All prices are dependent upon the property size, location and service required.
