If you’ve been thinking about buying a new home, then a pre purchase inspection is a prerequisite. A house is more than just a purchase, it is the place where your family will live and grow for years to come. It is also likely to be the biggest investment you are ever going to make.

With our leading building inspections, you can arm yourself with all the information you need to make the right decision for your family. We will independently assess and report any issues or potential problems that exist in the house, so that you are completely informed when you decide whether or not you will purchase the property, and how much you are willing to offer for it.
