When it comes to acquiring Building Inspectors in Perth how do you know who is the right inspection company for you?
Every persons needs are different, you may have signed a contract to purchase a home or commercial building, or are considering buying an established home, building a new home, have a specific concern with your own home (for example a sagging ceiling or moisture appearing within the building), or you just simply want advice and for someone to talk to and listen to you concerns, it can be confusing with so many companies that appear listed under building inspectors Perth, we have listed some suggestions, which may assist in you considering which of the companies that appear under building inspectors Perth may be right for your needs.
Who better to review a company than their actual clients? There are many companies available under building inspectors Perth who have no client reviews at all or have only a very limited number of reviews. A company who provides the best experience for their clients are often found to also provided a timely quality service, have a great reputation and all at an affordable price. By spending a little time reading the client reviews of the inspection company you are considering is well worth it. (See ABI Reviews on Facebook)
Who will actually carry out my inspection? There are many companies listed under building inspectors Perth which list how many years’ experience that company has with building inspections in Perth, however did you know that a number of these companies do not carry out the inspections themselves and while you book with one company they pass the job to a contractor, how much experience does that person have? Are they registered with the Building Commission and for how long?
Can I communicate directly with the building inspector? There are companies listed under building inspectors Perth that are not accessible seven days a week to answer your questions, some of your question may be pressing and waiting until that company reopens on a Monday can be stressful. Ask if the inspection company or their inspector is available on the week-end and do they have a 24 hour building helpline, interestingly, some companies do not even allow their clients to speak with the building inspector directly. Affordable Building Inspections are available to be contacted 24/7
What am I really getting for the price I pay? There are companies listed under building inspectors in Perth that advertise ‘structural inspections from $$$’. The word ‘from’ can be misleading, does their inspection include a fully comprehensive inspection, rather than structural only? And what does structural even mean, as there is a difference between structurally sound and a structural defect. Is plumbing and electrical included in the inspection? If the home has a pool, is the pool and isolation fencing included? And what about that free-standing structure? Many building inspection companies charge extra for each add on. By asking these questions up front will ensure all areas are inspected and included within the building report and once you have their total pricing, ensure that it is a fixed price.

How long does the building report take to get back and who arranges access? Access into established home needs to be pre-arranged, some homeowner or tenants work all week, there are companies listed under building inspectors Perth who do not work over week-ends or may want the buyer to liaise with the real estate agent and arrange access for them. Does the building inspection company have flexible working hours to suit the current occupier of the home? Most sales contracts are time sensitive and the inspection and report needs to be completed by a set date, check that any inspection company you may be considering can meet the contractual deadline. Do I need a building inspection before I buy?

Can I speak with the building inspector directly?
