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.

Property Development

Proximity to beaches, parks, and other attractions makes the area desirable for families, young professionals, and retirees. Various commercial properties are also available including office spaces, retail shops, and restaurants with high foot traffic making it a lucrative business location. Significant growth is being experienced with numerous construction projects underway from new residential developments to infrastructure upgrades. While some areas like Vaucluse and Double Bay have highly expensive properties, more affordable options can be found in suburbs like Maroubra and Randwick. Property management companies specialize in managing both types of properties offering maintenance, tenant management & rental services.

Building Construction

The growth in sales levels, particularly in middle and outer suburban areas, has also impacted the building inspection market in the Eastern Suburbs. While these areas have experienced rapid sales growth, the inner suburbs have seen slower growth or even a population decline. This slower growth in the inner suburbs has resulted in less retail building investment and, consequently, a lower demand for building inspections in these areas.
