How We Help You in Geelong

If you are planning to invest in a property and are looking for a company to design a condition report which can give you all the information you need to make an informed decision of whether or not to invest in the property, then you can depend on us to do it for you.

Our condition reports are drafted according to the Australian Standards and Quality Guidelines and are trusted by real estate agents and lawyers in Geelong. The condition report drafted by us is easy to understand and read and can help you avoid a property deal that could potentially cost you a lot in terms of expensive repairs. Below are the steps that our team follows to prepare the condition report for you.

PHASE ONE

Building Inspection Geelong

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.

PHASE TWO

Pest Inspection Geelong

Typically, when it comes to pest inspections, it involves ripping out portions of the walls, which is not only a messy process but can cause a lot of disruption to your routine. They can also completely miss the nesting areas that are deep-rooted, which can cause problems for you in the future.

We make use of state-of-the-art technology that has been specially designed for pest detection without causing any disruption or damage to your property. We make use of a combination of radar, thermal and moisture technology that enables us to look through the walls, floors and ceilings without causing any damage at all.

Our RBI Geelong inspector is equipped with the Termatrac equipment and is trained to use this, which can detect the location of termites accurately without the need to penetrate the walls, floors or ceilings physically. The inspector will inspect all the areas that are accessible and visible thoroughly for the presence of termites and for potential nesting areas too.

PHASE THREE

Geelong Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection Reports

Our inspection reports are simple and easy to read and are documented in accordance to the Australian Standards AS4349.1-2007 and AS4349.3. The reports also conform to the legal requirements. All the things that you need to know about the property will be highlighted in the report, including any repairs that you may have to undertake, safety hazards, etc. along with photographs so that you are aware of the problem areas.

Our reports included:

PHASE FOUR

The Findings

The pre-purchase and pest reports we submit to you conform to the Australian Standards AS4349.1-2007 and AS4349.3, which make them fully recognised and accepted by real estate agents and lawyers.

The report will highlight all the aspects of the property that can put your investment at risk, which will enable you to either terminate your contract or place you in a better position to bargain with the seller. And, all this means that you can be at peace of mind when you buy your new home knowing that you are getting the home you want, at the right price.

Latest Technology in Geelong

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
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.
