How We Help You in Newcastle

If you’re planning to buy a property, our condition report is designed to give you all the information you require to make a well-informed and considered decision on whether to buy the property or not.

Our reports are drafted according to the Australian Standards and Quality Guidelines and are recognised by the real estate agents, as well as solicitors, in Newcastle.

Our condition reports are extremely easy to read and understand and could help you avoid a bad property deal that could be extremely expensive in terms of repairs. Here are the steps that we follow to prepare your property condition report:

PHASE ONE

Building Inspection Newcastle

Despite being told by the estate agent that the property you’re considering is in “brand new” or “excellent” condition, it is a good idea to get an industry expert to give you a second opinion.

The painted areas could be concealing flaws or rotting frames that may require expensive repairs and maintenance. Our Ipswich inspector will safeguard your investment by looking out for defects and coverups to find out the extent of the damage.

Our inspection team will bring with them all the equipment required such as specialist devices, powerful torches, ladders, etc. to inspect all the areas that are visible and they will also make use of thermal and radar equipment to check the insides of the walls for the presence of any moisture, leaks and termites. And, all these services are included in the base fixed cost and you will not be charged anything extra.
PHASE TWO

Pest Inspection Newcastle

Usually, pest inspection involves tearing out portions of the wall, which can be quite messy and cause a lot of disruption. And, often the nesting areas that are deeply housed are missed, which can have serious consequences in the future.

Our specialist team of inspectors make use of state-of-the-art technology that has been designed to specifically detect pests without causing any damage to your property. We make use of a blend of radar, thermal and moisture technology that enables us to look through the walls, floors and ceilings of the property without disturbing anything at all.

Our Newcastle pest inspector is trained to use the Termatrac equipment that can detect and locate the precise location of termites without requiring to penetrate the walls, ceilings or floors physically. The inspector will inspect each and every part of the property that is accessible and visible to detect any current and potential termite nesting areas.
PHASE THREE

Newcastle Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection Reports

Once the inspection is complete, we give you a condition report that is prepared as per the Australian Standards AS4349.1-2007 and AS4349.3. This report is written in a very straightforward and easy-to-read manner, and conforms to the legal requirements.

The report will highlight all the things you need to know about the property including any expensive repairs that you may have to undertake, safety hazards, etc. along with photographs, so that you are able to understand all the problem areas without any hassles.

Our reports included:

Latest Technology in Newcastle

Our expert RBI inspectors all carry the ‘Termatrac T3i’ and ‘Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus’. These devices can precisely detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites without needing to physically penetrate any walls, floors or ceilings and more importantly, it won’t disrupt or displace termite activity.
Termatrac Thermal
The ‘Remote Thermal Sensor’ can pin point significant heat sources generated by termites within conventional building structures and the Termite Detection Radar accurately detects and confirms the presence of termites in the suspect areas. It can also trace and locate termite nests and entry points.
Termatrac Radar
Using a calibrated radar signal, this device can identify termites through timber, brick, masonry, concrete, plasterboard, plastic and other common building materials. No more holes in walls, and no need for tapping or prodding. And because the termites aren’t disturbed, they remain active for easy and accurate detection by the Termatrac Termite Detection Radar.
Termatrac Moisture Sensor
The moisture sensor built into the ‘Termatrac T3i’ hand-held unit can measure and record differential moisture levels in building materials without damaging them. It can identify potential termite risk areas by the concentrated presence of moisture in most surfaces including wood, plasterboard, roofing, plastic, brick and concrete.
Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus
Our inspectors all carry the ‘Tramex Moisture Encounter plus (MEP)’. It is a non-invasive overall building inspection moisture meter. It’s fast, precise and versatile! It can measure and evaluate moisture levels through paint, wall coatings, plasterboard, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, roof coverings and ceilings.
