Why Choose Clear View Property Inspections

building inspections are a valuable tool for ensuring the safety, compliance, and value of a property. They can help identify potential issues early on, provide peace of mind, and give property owners and buyers negotiating power.

Detailed Building Inspections

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.

The turnaround time for receiving a building inspection report can vary depending on the inspector and the scope of the inspection. In general, most building inspectors aim to provide the report within 24 to 48 hours after the inspection has been completed.

Licensed NSW Builders

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.

Identify potential issues: A building inspection can identify potential issues or defects in a property that may not be visible to the untrained eye. This includes structural problems, plumbing and electrical issues, water damage, and more. Identifying these issues early on can prevent them from becoming more serious and costly to fix in the future.

Building Compliance

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.

Peace of mind: A building inspection can provide peace of mind to property owners and potential buyers by confirming that the property is in good condition and safe for use.

Trusted Inspections

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

  • As standard we will use Tramex moisture meter to identify high moisture areas.
  • Ladders to access roof cavity and roof top
  • Second story home we use Top of the Line DJI Drone Mavic 2 pro to take pictures of second and third story roofs.
  • High performance torches for our roof void and subfloor inspections.
  • Shoe covers while we are inspecting inside homes.
  • Latex gloves to ensure we leave no finger prints on man hole covers or anything else we touch.

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.

Your building inspection report will include the state of:

  • Your garage, carport or garden shed
  • Laundry, Kitchen and toilets
  • Small retaining walls (non-structural)
  • Steps and stairs
  • Fencing
  • Surface water drainage
  • Stormwater run-off
  • pavement and driveways

Also, if you’d like a specific area or item inspected during your building inspection, please let us know and we’ll include them in your personalised building inspection report.

Clear View Property Inspections include the following in all our reports:

  • Identification of Safety hazards
  • Identification of Major defects
  • Identification of Minor defects
  • Review of any conditions that might cause a future deterioration
  • Detailed photography to identify and describe the issues in a report
  • Suggestions about what can be done to rectify the identified issues

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:

  • Areas of a property that were obstructed or couldn’t be inspected
  • Matters outside of our expertise at building inspectors
  • An estimate of costs for repairs required (we can help with estimates to negotiate with the seller) We can recommend trades to give you estimates and we at Clear View can provide estimates on repairs also.
  • Full termite and pest inspection beyond any visible identification

Pest Inspections

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.

Termite Damage

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.

Pre-Purchase Building Inspection

This inspection is done before a property is purchased. It identifies any existing or potential issues that might not be visible to the untrained eye, such as structural defects, pest infestations, and moisture-related problems.

Pre-Sale Building Inspection

Like a pre-purchase inspection, property sellers conduct this inspection to address issues before listing their property for sale, ensuring transparency and potentially enhancing its marketability.

New Construction Inspection

These inspections occur during construction to monitor compliance with building codes and standards, ensuring that the property is built safely and to a satisfactory standard.

Dilapidation Inspection

This type of inspection is often carried out before construction or development occurs on adjacent properties to assess and document the condition of neighbouring properties. It helps prevent disputes by providing a baseline for any potential damage claims.
