How We Help You in Blackburn

Buying property is not only difficult but is also one of the biggest investments one can make, which is why it is important to make the correct decision and this where our condition reports can help you. Our property condition reports follow Australian Standards and they are recognised by solicitors, as well as, real estate agents. The property report will give you complete peace of mind in making an educated decision when buying a property. It can even help you avoid a bad deal that may end up costing thousands in costly repairs.

Here are the steps of how we go about preparing your property condition report:


Building Inspection Blackburn

The property you are planning to buy may look really great and you may have been told that it is in excellent condition. However, in reality, the painted areas may be concealing flaws and rotting frames that will require expensive repairs and maintenance.
Our aim is to safeguard your investment and so, our inspector will keep a close watch for any coverups by the homeowner or defects to determine the level of damage. For this, they will also check the interiors of the walls for the presence of any moisture, leaks and termites.
Usually, all these services are charged extra by other inspection service providers; however, all the services are included in the base fixed cost that we charge you.


Pest Inspection Blackburn

Usually, pest inspection involves tapping, drilling and tearing out portions of the wall, which can be messy and disruptive and despite doing this, often nesting areas that are deeply housed may be completely missed out. However, thanks to the top-of-the-line equipment and technology used by our pest inspectors, the presence of pests can be detected without causing any damage to your property. Our inspectors make use of a combination of radar, thermal and moisture technology to look through the floors, walls and ceilings without leaving a trace.
Each of our RBI inspectors is trained to use the Termatrac equipment, which is the only tool that can detect and pinpoint the presence and location of termites precisely without the requirement to penetrate the floors, ceilings and walls physically. Our inspectors will inspect all the visible areas of the property for current and possible nesting areas.


Blackburn Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection Reports

The reports that we deliver to you are drafted in simple English and are prepared as per the current industry standards. In our report, we will highlight all the concern areas and pinpoint the defects and hazards that may require expensive repairs. Along with the report, we will also provide photographs and suggestions on the work needed to rectify the problems.

Latest Technology in Blackburn

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?

We are able to offer low prices to you by keeping minimal interactions between the property seller and the inspectors. However, to achieve this, we would need access to the property at the appointed date and time. Coordinating property access can be very time consuming and we cannot have the property inspectors calling the sellers or estate agents to arrange the access, as the process can get very complicated.

We guarantee to provide a condition report of the highest quality; however, for this, we will require you to confirm access to the property at the appointed time. And, if for some reason this is not possible, then we would request you to give us 24-hour advance notice so that we are able to reschedule the booking to another time.
