Architect Inspect and Akii.tech Group are continuing to provide design and construction consultation support to our clients during this challenging time. We encourage you to make contact with us via telephone or via our social media channels. In cases where it is necessary for a private consultation or building inspection, our Architects take your health and safety seriously and are following rules and guidelines set out by the government in relation to social distancing, frequent hand-washing and not consulting while ill. Where buildings are being inspected or consultations are taking place, it is recommended that building owners sanitise surfaces and touchpoints after the architect has left the premises. Architect Inspect and Akii.tech Group would like to thank our community for their continued support during this challenging time.

Reliable Pre-Purchase Building Inspections in Melbourne

Why should I hire a Building Inspector?

Because it is a vital part of your due diligence that can save you money and stress. Purchasing a new home is a big investment and can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Our professional, concise pre purchase inspection reports will arm you with the information required to make the best purchase decision possible. Architect Inspect produces comprehensive inspection reports identifying building defects, faults and conditions that will be costly to rectify. We have saved our clients many thousands of dollars by alerting them to issues and identifying defects that they were unaware of before they proceeded with the sale.

What your Inspection will Cover?

Your qualified inspector will prepare a building inspection report in accordance with Australian Standard AS4349-2007. The Report will identify:
  • Major structural issues
  • Minor defects such as expected property maintenance and repairs
  • Information on works required, including tradespeople required and a cost basis estimate.
  • An overview of termite activity visible in any of the accessible timbers of the property (if ordered)
  • A review of current conditions that may attract or assist termite or timber pest infestation (if ordered)
Our pre-purchase building inspections are fully illustrated and contain descriptions of each defect to assist you to make a fully informed property decision. Our inspectors hold public liability insurance, professional indemnity insurance and use state of the art technology and equipment to ensure that they provide the most accurate inspection report possible.

When will I get my report?

Reports are dispatched within 1 business day and the inspector is available to answer any questions that you may have right up to settlement.

When Should I commission the report?

If the home you are interested in is being sold by private sale, we would recommend making the contract of sale subject to a building and pest inspection and giving yourself plenty of time to undertake the inspection. Real estate agents may try to talk you out of an inspection but remember they that they are normally working for the vendor – not you. 14 days is ideal because further investigations of certain items may be recommended. If you find a home you would like to purchase at Auction, it is often necessary to carry out a pre purchase inspection report before auction day. Contact us for further information or to request your free quote or inspection. If you provide the agents details we can arrange an inspection time on your behalf.
