Frequently Asked Questions

All of our inspectors have the essential skills and knowledge to carry out your inspection – they know how buildings go together and how they can fall apart!  They are happy to explain their findings and answer your questions so you can make an informed decision about your purchase or construction project.

We have also developed our own custom-built inspection report that can be completed on-site via an iPad, so you can be assured that it incorporates all the essential elements and photos needed for a thorough inspection. We often receive feedback from our clients saying how professional and easy our reports are to read.

We are professionals in the building industry, which means we have actual on-site experience. Collectively, our team of property inspectors have extensive building experience and we receive ongoing training as products and building construction techniques constantly change.

We offer a 100% money-back guarantee on the services we provide. We are also covered by $1m professional indemnity insurance and $5m Public Liability.

We cover a wide range of locations from metropolitan Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

With just one phone call, our Leading Building & Pest Inspections team will organise everything to meet your requirements. Our communication between clients and sales agents or vendor is exceptional.

Approximately 1-2 hours, depending on the size and condition of the house.

Our report covers about 250 items on the house, including structural elements both inside and out, the wet areas, water pressure, hot water service, roof and gutters, insulation, etc. We also check for safety switches and smoke detectors.  Refer also to our Terms & Conditions which outline what we do and do not cover.

Yes, you are welcome to meet the building inspector on site near the end of the house inspection, i.e. about 45-60 minutes after the inspection appointment time as this gives us time to systematically inspect the structure and test items and systems on the property in accordance with AS4349.1.

If you are available to meet on site, the Property Inspector can go through the report verbally immediately after the inspection and clarify each point raised. If you are not able to meet on site, the inspector will phone you after you receive the report and go through the report verbally. In both situations, the Inspector will  email you the report.

Leading Building & Pest Inspections accept credit cards such as Visa and Mastercard but unfortunately not AMEX or Diners Card. Payment can also be made in cash on site or internet transfer. An invoice will accompany your pre inspection agreement with a credit card popup with the electronic agreement.

No, we do not reduce the price for cash payment. Our reports automatically generate a tax invoice and all of our payments are recorded in our financial system.

Any building work is possible but we recommend that clients get advice from a structural engineer first before any work proceeds.

You need to get a Building Surveyor to issue a building permit and final Occupancy Permit. We can provide suggested names of Building Surveyors if required.
