How We Help You in Sydney

Our condition reports follow Australian Standards and Quality Guidelines and are recognised by real estate agents and solicitors on the Sydney.
We’ve designed the report to give you the information you need to make well-informed decision about purchasing a property (or not).
Our reports are easy to read and may even help you dodge a bad deal that could costs you thousands in repairs. Here’s how we prepare your condition report.

PHASE ONE

Building Inspection Sydney

While the property looks great and the agent has told you of its ‘excellent condition’, it’s essential to get a second opinion from an unbiased industry expert. Freshly painted areas that look ‘new’ could be hiding rotting frames and evidence of pests.
A trained expert can point out actual, as well as potential issues that could be expensive to repair that may not be noticeable to the untrained eye. To keep your wallet protected, your inspector will be on the lookout for defects and seller ‘cover-ups’ to determine the ACTUAL extent of the damage.
They’ll bring powerful torches, ladders and other specialist devices to inspect visible areas. They will even use a thermal sensor, moisture sensor and radar equipment to check inside walls and cavities should the need arise. Unlike some other inspection services, we don’t charge extra fees for these value-added services. They’re all included in our fixed quoted cost.

PHASE TWO

Pest Inspection Sydney

Pest inspections in Sydney used to mean tapping, drilling and even ripping out sections of the wall! And not only are these methods messy and highly invasive, they can miss deeply housed nest areas.
Fortunately, our inspectors carry state-of-the-art technology designed specifically to detect pests WITHOUT damaging the property. Using a combination of thermal, moisture and radar technology, your RBI inspector can look through walls, ceilings and floors without leaving even a mark.
Each RBI Sydney inspector is equipped with (and trained to use) the Termatrac T3i device. This industry leading device can precisely detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites without physically needing to penetrate walls, floors or ceilings. You can be sure your inspector will check every visible area of the property for any nesting hotspots!

PHASE THREE

Sydney Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection Reports

Our pre-purchase building and pest reports are written in ‘plain ol’ English, and prepared in accordance with Australian Standard (AS 4349.1-2007 and AS 4349.3) requirements. We highlight areas of concern and point out safety hazards and defects that may need costly repairs. We also take extensive photos showing the location of identified defects and safety hazards.

Latest Technology in Sydney

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.
