We service all areas of Perth, North Perth, Joondalup and surrounding areas. 1. Pre-purchase Structural Inspection Report A Pre-Purchase Structural Inspection Report looks into the structural elements of the building. It is a visual inspection focusing on the footings and slab, floor tiles, internal and external walls, roof structure, patio, pergolas and retaining walls. A structural fault in a property is any area in the structure that has lost its designed structural integrity. This report is usually 10+ pages and includes photos of the structure. 2. Pre-Purchase Structural Inspection Report Plus A Pre-Purchase Structural Inspection Report Plus includes all of the above PLUS we also check pool structure and pool fencing for compliance to the Australian Standards, any structures not attached to the house, electrical and plumbing fixtures and fittings, roofing material, doors, windows and cabinets. It is a complete and extensive report of the condition of your home. This report is usually 25+ pages and includes photos of the structure, fixtures and fittings. 3. Handover Inspection Report The Handover Inspection Report is the builders final ‘To Do’ list at handover. At this stage we will check that the fixtures and fittings have been installed correctly, appropriate sealing has been made to the wet areas, external treatments have been completed and the workmanship is acceptable, that paint finishes are of a quality standard, all hardware is fitted and works including all doors, all plumbing and electrical devices have been completed and functioning correctly. 4. Six Month Maintenance Inspection Report When building a new home your contract will state that the builder is required to do a 6 month maintenance inspection. The builder only has to do this however if the owner notifies the builder within the first six months that there are some items they want the builder to fix. Most new home owners don't realise that the onus is on them to contact the builder so often this milestone goes past and the inspection never gets done. We can help you address this issue by inspecting your house in the 5th month which then gives you plenty of time to contact the builder to arrange the issues to be rectified. The format of this report is a two page checklist which will include photos if required. 5. Pool Safety Inspection Report Pool safety is important, every week it is reported that a child 0 to 5 years of age drowns in Australia. It is estimated that a further six children a week are admitted to hospital after an immersion incident. Our Pool Safety Inspection Report checks that the pool barriers meet the Australian Standard 1926.1 – 2007 Parts 1 & 2. Legislation in Western Australia requires that the owner maintains the barrier in such a condition that it functions at ALL times.
