I was extremely impressed by the service I received by the whole team at Informed Building Inspections. All the team were so helpful and responsive. I had a tight timeframe to work with and was able to book in quickly and I received the building report within 24 hours. The report was very detailed yet easy to read and understand. I cannot recommend this company and their service highly enough.

When conducting a Building and Pest Inspection, Building Inspection, or New Construction Handover/Stage Inspection we will inspect all visible and accessible areas of the property.

A Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection determines the structural integrity and current overall condition of the property at the time of inspection. We identify any Major or Minor defects as per the Australian Standards in the following locations: external and internal walls, ceilings, sub-floor, roof spaces, roof exteriors, floors, doors, cabinetry, tiling, patios and pergolas, retaining walls, sheds and yard spaces surrounding the property etc. If it is accessible, it is inspected. We also pay particular attention to wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.

Using non-invasive techniques and equipment our highly experienced inspectors identify termite damage and conducive conditions, high moisture, concealed defects, damage and any serious safety concerns. All inspections are thorough and reports are detailed, as well as inclusive of photos alongside explanations of findings.

This or That - why choose a qualified Building and Pest Inspector when buying a new home


We encourage everyone purchasing a new property to conduct a Building and Pest Inspection. Understanding the overall condition of the property is essential to ensuring you are making a good investment. Most properties will have some form of Major defect detected during our comprehensive inspections in accordance with the Australian Standards and QBCC Standards and Tolerances Guide. A Major defect does not mean the property contract should fall through. Some Major defects are easily rectified and identification of the defects allows you to consider and calculate additional costs. The purpose of your inspection report is to highlight immediate and future maintenance so that you can seek independent quotes and calculate maintenance and repair costs prior to settlement. It is essential to arrange your inspection early, especially if you have shorter contract time frames. We provide guaranteed 24 Hour turn around on reports, with same day reporting also available. In addition we encourage you to attend inspections to walk through findings on site.


When you engage Informed Building Inspections to conduct a pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection your report is a confidential document that is provided to you only. It is a useful document that can provide you with options when it comes to finalising your contract. These can include acting as a checklist for immediate and future rectifications or assisting in submitting price negotiations. The defects identified also allow you to determine what might be a non-negotiable resulting in you pulling out of the contract. Our aim when completing an inspection is to ensure you are well informed on the current condition of the property and confident in your decision moving forward.


If you are questioning whether to get a pre-purchase or pre-sale Building and Pest Inspection or New Construction Inspections, we always recommend you err on the side of caution and invest in a quality independent inspector to complete a thorough inspection and report. Our inspectors are extremely experienced registered builders and licensed building and pest inspectors. They will inspect the property thoroughly and identify all Major and Minor defects using their extensive knowledge, attention to detail and non-invasive equipment. If further investigation is required recommendations will be made in the report for the best trades to engage for repair, maintenance or monitoring. Informed Building Inspections values honesty, integrity and providing a high quality of support to all our clients. When choosing Informed Building Inspections you are guaranteed comprehensive reporting, quick turnarounds, competitive prices and a highly experienced inspector every time.
