Building Inspections Across Victoria

It is always a good idea to get the second option of an industry expert while making a property investment, despite being told by the real estate agent that the property is in “as-new” or “excellent” condition. In fact, the painted areas could be concealing flaws or rotting frames that require costly repairs and maintenance. Our inspector can help to protect your investment by looking out for any defects and coverups by the homeowner and determine the extent of the damage. Our specialist team will carry with them specialised equipment and tools, powerful torches and ladders to inspect all the visible areas of the property.

And, to check the insides of the walls for any moisture, leaks or termites, they will make use of thermal and radar equipment. And, all these services are offered at no extra cost and are included in the base fixed cost. Our services are extremely cost-effective without making a dent in your pocket.

Why Choose Rapid Building Inspections in Victoria?

Expert Victorian Inspectors

While training is great, nothing beats industry experience! Every inspector is a licensed building and pest inspector which means they are experts and will be able to spot issues less experienced inspectors could miss.

Members of the Australian Institute of Building Consultants

We are active members of the IBC and regularly meet to improve our capabilities in building inspections, timber pest inspections and pre-purchase inspections.

All RBI Inspectors are Qualified pest inspectors

Our inspectors follow the Australian best practice in pest inspections and are trained and qualified according to the Australia inspection standards AS4349.3. We are authorised to conduct pest inspections throughout the greater Victoria.

All RBI Inspectors have Professional Indemnity Insurance

All our work comes with professional indemnity insurance of up to $5,000,000. We won’t need it, but it’s nice to know you’re protected if something does happen!

Latest Technology in Victoria

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 pinpoint 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.

How Do We Keep Our Prices Low?

Our commitment to our customers is to provide a high-quality and 100% unbiased pre-purchase building and pest report at a great price! How do we do this? It’s simple! By having minimal face-to-face interaction between the RBI Victoria Inspector, the owner and the real estate agent selling the property. This lets our inspectors get on with the job of inspecting the property and getting the report back to you! Coordinating access to the property can be time-consuming, and we can’t afford to have our inspectors calling agents and sellers to arrange access. Therefore we need guaranteed access organised by you for our inspectors 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 book another time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does rapid mean? It means fast dispatch, not missing the appointment and efficient turnaround time for your report!

When can you do the inspection? We never turn work away, so we will endeavour to make a slot available to you at the earliest convenience.

Could I attend the inspection? Yes, you can be on-site when the inspection is taking place, that way, you can talk to the Inspector directly and discuss any issues. However, we do ask that you allow the inspector to conduct his inspection unhindered and save questions until he is finished. This helps to ensure a thorough and uncompromised report.

Do you check the loft and roof? As long as our inspectors are able to gain access, they are areas that we will check.

What is included in the report? The report includes either a building inspection report, a pest inspection report or both. And all in easy-to-understand English.

How soon will I receive my report? You’ll have your report within 24 hours of the completed inspection provided payment has been received, or your money back!

Can I rescind my contract based on your findings? Our condition reports are in accordance with current Australian Standards and are therefore recognised by real estate agents and solicitors. Provided you have special conditions in your contract, RBI’s condition report is known as proof.

What happens after I book an appointment? Our RBI concierge will call to confirm the details of your property. We will dispatch the RBI inspector at your confirmed access time.
