Building Inspections In Hobart

Buying a property will be one of the largest investments you will ever make. That’s why we deliver easy-to-read reports to help you make the right decision.
Our condition reports are following Australian Standards and are recognised by real estate agents and solicitors. The report will give you the peace of mind to make an informed decision about purchasing a property in Hobart.
It 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

Home Inspections Hobart

While the property might look great and you’ve no doubt been told it’s in ‘excellent condition’, it’s essential to get a second opinion by an industry expert. Freshly painted areas could, in fact, be hiding rotting frames and what is easily identifiable pest evidence may not be noticeable to the untrained eye.
A trained expert can point out actual as well as potential issues that could be expensive to repair. To keep you 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 ladders, powerful torches and specialist devices to inspect visible areas.
They’ll even use radar and thermal sensing equipment to check inside walls and cavities should the need arise. Unlike some other inspection services, we don’t charge extra fees for these services, they’re all included in our fixed quoted cost.
PHASE TWO

Pest Inspection Hobart

Pest inspections in Hobart used to mean drilling, tapping and even ripping out sections of the wall. Not only are these methods messy and invasive, but they can also still miss deeply housed nest areas. Fortunately, our inspectors use state-of-the-art technology designed specifically to detect pests without damaging the property.
Using a combination of moisture, thermal and radar technology, they can look through walls, ceilings and floors without leaving even a mark.
Each expert RBI Hobart inspector is equipped with (and trained to use) the Termatrac T3i device which is an industry leading device that can precisely locate, detect and confirm the presence of termites without physically needing to penetrate walls, floors or ceilings. They’ll inspect every visible area of the property for any nesting hotspots!
PHASE THREE

Property Inspections Hobart

Our pre-purchase building and pest reports are written in ‘plain’ 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 provide photos showing the location of identified defects and safety hazards.

Latest Technology in Hobart

Our expert RBI inspectors all use the Termatrac T31 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 (Home Inspections)
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 (Pest Inspections)
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 (Property Inspections)
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 (Pre-Purchase Inspections)
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.

WE ACCEPT MULTIPLE FORMS OF PAYMENT

How Do We Keep Our Prices Low?

By having minimal face-to-face interactions between the RBI Inspector and the custodian of the property. To do this, you must provide access to the property at the agreed time and date. Coordinating access to the property is time-consuming, and we can’t afford to have our Hobart based inspectors calling agents and sellers to arrange access. Our commitment is to provide a high-quality condition report. But to do that, we need you to confirm access for our inspectors on our behalf at the agreed date and time. If you can’t secure a time for them to access the property, let us know 24-hours in advance so we can make book another time. Take a look at our price list for building inspection service.
