Choosing the right person to inspect the property!

In Western Australia, there are currently no licensing requirements or regulations for building inspectors doing pre-purchase building inspections. This means that there is the potential for any person of any background to own and operate a pre-purchase building inspection service. Caution should be taken when nominating a building inspector; you should choose an inspector who at least is a registered builder.

At no time will employees or subcontractors be used to undertake the actual building inspection. It is the business owner’s license and reputation on the line, making it in the interest of Comprehensive Property Inspections to ensure you are completely satisfied with your report. 

What service do we offer?

At Comprehensive Property Inspections we realize that the purchase of a home is probably the largest and most exciting investment you will ever make. It is difficult to remove any emotional attachment you may have for a home due to its location, style, setting, etc.

A Pre-Purchase Building Inspection is a non-invasive, visual property inspection performed prior to finalising a sale and is usually a condition of your purchase contract. A Pre-Purchase Building Inspection identifies building faults and issues that affect your property and presents you with a detailed condition report so that your decision to buy the property is a fully informed one. The Pre-Purchase Building Inspection and Report are essential to providing you with peace of mind.
