How We Help You in Melbourne

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. 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

Building Inspection Melbourne

While the property might look great – you’ve no doubt been told it’s “excellent condition” – it’s essential to get a second opinion of an industry expert. Freshly painted areas could in fact be hiding rotting frames, or flaws that will need the expensive maintenance.
To keep protected, your inspector will be on the lookout for defects and homeowner 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 equipment to check inside the walls for leaks, moisture and termites.
And unlike some other inspection services that will change you extra for these services, they’re all included in our base cost.

PHASE TWO

Pest Inspection Melbourne

Pest inspections used to mean drilling, tapping, and even ripping out sections of the wall. Not only are these methods messy and intrusive, they often 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 thermal, moisture and radar technology, they can look through walls, ceilings and floors without leaving even a mark.
Each RBI inspector is equipped with (and trained to use) the Termatrac device – the only device that can precisely detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites without needing to penetrate walls, floors or ceilings physically. They’ll inspect every visible and accessible area of the property for both current and potential nesting hotspots.

PHASE THREE

Melbourne Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection Reports

Our reports are written in plain English, and prepared under current industry practice. We’ll highlight areas of concern, and point out hazards and defects that may need costly repairs. We’ll also provide photos and recommendations on the work required to rectify the issues.

Latest Technology in Melbourne

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.

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 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.
