A good point to remember when comparing prices of building inspections is the quality of the inspector and the report that you’ll be getting.
Trying to save $50 to $100 on a building inspection can potentially cost you thousands in the future because of missed defects.
Always make sure that your building inspector is fully licensed and has had many years experience as a builder and a building inspector.
What Parts of the House Does the Inspection Cover?
Many inspectors fail to go into the roof void – make sure that your inspection is thorough and covers all aspects of your property.
When you get a quote for your inspection, always ask what it includes and if they guarantee their reports.
Also, make sure they they are using a thermal imaging camera which can show a lot more than what can be seen by the naked eye.
Make Sure Your Inspector Has the Correct Qualifications
Also make sure your inspector has professional indemnity insurance as well as general and public liability insurance.

Your potential inspector must provide you with an inspection agreement form.
This will ensure that the inspector complies with current Australian Standards. If they fail to provide this form to you, there’s a good chance that they are not properly licensed or insured.
The cost of a building and pest inspection can vary depending on the size and type of property that will be inspected.
