At Clear View Property Inspections we conduct building inspections to guarantee that both new and existing buildings meet the necessary building codes, Australian standards, and regulations. Our services include Pre-Purchase Building Inspection and Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspection. All of our inspections are accompanied by detailed reports.
A detailed building inspection report is crucial when buying or building a property. This report will help you identify defects or potential building problems. You can then use the report to negotiate with the seller, address the issues, or adjust the property’s price accordingly considering necessary repairs.
We are experienced and fully licensed building inspectors in Sydney, NSW. We can identify any defects or potential problems in the property, such as issues related to the structure, electrical systems, plumbing, roofing, and other systems. Licensed builders are required to carry insurance, including public liability and home warranty insurance.
A building inspection report can help ensure the property complies with local building codes and regulations. This can help the buyer avoid potential legal and financial liabilities arising from non-compliance. Our inspector will ensure your property meets the technical design and construction provisions for buildings.
When buying property, it is essential to invest in a reliable building inspection report you can trust. A thorough inspection conducted by a qualified building inspector can give buyers peace of mind and help identify any potential issues with the property before finalizing the purchase.
Common building inspection questions from customers collected from across Sydney NSW.
The cost of a building inspection can vary from $400 to $1500, depending on factors such as the duration of the inspection, the property’s location, the inspector’s level of expertise and experience, and any specialized equipment or technology required for the inspection.
Building inspectors will inspect all accessible areas of the home. These include floors, walls, ceilings, roof cavities, sub-floor, fences, roofs, bathrooms, kitchens, etc. They will look at the property’s condition, detailing the major and minor defects.
After your building inspection, we’ll fill out a complete building inspection report. As the property owner or future buyer, you’ll be able to see exactly what’s looking good and what needs some repairs.
At Clear View, we ensure our building inspection reports are straightforward to understand, even if you’ve never had a building inspection before.

Keep in mind that pre-purchase building inspection reports don’t deal with absolutely every aspect of a property. Building inspections are generalised inspections of the major visible issues in a building at the time of inspection.
From there, we offer other inspection services for more specific problems we might find during our pre-purchase building inspection. So, with all that being said, a building inspection report will not include:
Servicing several customers across Sydney, these are the common pest inspection questions when conducting a property inspection.
Our inspection aims to evaluate the presence of timber pests, including any visible signs of damage caused by them and conditions that may be conducive to their activity. At Clear View Property Inspections, our team consists of certified Pest Management Technicians equipped with in-depth knowledge and expertise in identifying concealed termite ingress spots. With decades of experience inspecting and treating numerous homes for termites, we guarantee high-quality advice on preventive measures.
It is important to note that the standard inspection process is non-invasive, primarily relying on visual examination and limited sounding of elements for evaluation. Sellers may have reservations about invasive methods such as cutting holes in walls or moving furniture due to practicality and feasibility concerns.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to hire a qualified Pest technician specifically trained in timber pest inspections. It should be noted that very few inspectors are certified Pest management technicians, while others may have completed only two modules of the pest management course allowing them to inspect homes for timber pests.
The duration of a timber pest inspection can vary depending on several factors, including the property’s size, construction type (subfloor or concrete slab), roofing composition (flat or pitched), and land area. It is important to consider the qualifications and reputation of the inspector rather than opting for cheap prices that may result in fast and careless inspections lasting only an hour.
On average, Clear View Property Inspections dedicates approximately 3-4 hours for a thorough timber pest inspection. However, we are committed to spending additional time if necessary without compromising on attention to detail. Rest assured that our priority lies in providing comprehensive inspections rather than rushing through them by cutting corners.
Clear View Property Inspections invests in their training and knowledge.

In recent times, there has been an increase in building defects in Sydney, posing significant challenges for homeowners and builders in NSW.Request a building inspector
It is not uncommon for homes to have previous termite damage or active termites. Many homeowners, due to busy lifestyles, neglect regular termite inspections and may unknowingly have a termite infestation in their homes. Active termites are often found in homes that are up for sale. Homeowners also frequently attempt to conceal the fact that they have had termite problems. In NSW, there is no legal requirement for homeowners to disclose past or current termite issues. With our years of experience in treating termites, Clear View Property Inspections have become experts at identifying previous termite damage.Request a termite inspection

“ Initially we met Robert when he was inspecting our house for the purchaser of our property.
We found him so polite and thorough. We asked for his details and used him for the purchase of our new home. We are very happy customers. The inspection gave us a clear view of what we were purchasing. ”
“ Robert was recommended to me by friends of ours. Not only was he professional from the first conversation but being he is a licensed Builder and Pest controller put me at ease. The report was very detailed and was followed by a phone call to discuss his findings. In the end there was some major issues with the property so we decided to not purchase. Well worth the $$$. ”
” Robert has been looking after our home for over 7 years now and there is nobody I trust more than him to do a proper and thorough job. His service and communication are the best in the business and to top it off, he is gentleman to deal with. If I could give 6 stars I would as I highly recommend Robert and Clear View Property Inspections. “
