How can Active Building Inspections help?

Active Building Inspections PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTIONS

At Active Building Inspections, our building and pest inspection is a visual inspection of a property to assess any structural damage and identify any signs of timber pest infestation. The inspection will be carried out by a qualified building inspector and pest management technician. We will inspect the interior and exterior of the property, looking out for any structural defects, signs of dampness, timber pest activity, and other issues. The report from the inspection will outline any problems that need to be addressed and, if necessary, recommend further investigations or treatments. This appraisal will be in comparison with properties of similar age and structure. The report generated whilst not a certificate of compliance will allow the purchaser to make an informed decision and a course of action planned.

“Paul from Active Building Inspections undertook a thorough inspection of our house and surrounds in Mount Ommaney on Monday 12 September 2022. Apart from being extremely professional, he was also very engaging and communicative in terms of the condition of our home. This is the first time we have had such an inspection and were not entirely sure as to what would take place. We are so glad that Paul’s name and contact details were given to us. We would strongly recommend Paul and his company to anyone needing a Pest & Building Inspection. In conclusion, It is always better dealing with friendly and personable people that possess a sense of humour! Thanks also to Ben (Office Manager) for arranging the inspection at very short notice.”
