As a new home buyer in the East Gippsland region the issues that would normally plague home buyers were very unknown to me. Mr ALSOP gave me a no BS estimate of issues and repair costs for the property I was purchasing, so I could make the best informed decision when purchasing. The detail and thoroughness of the inspection left nothing to the imagination and gave me a very very good picture of the work that lay ahead of me in regards to the property. These guys are punctual, personable, and professional full stop. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a property in the area.

We used Steve twice for our pre-purchase inspections; the first for a lovely fully renovated home which we had bought that turned out to be a lemon. The property had such serious structural defects (the house floor was sinking) that it rendered our sales contract void. The second inspection was for the home we eventually purchased.Steve's reports are so detailed and thorough that every aspect of the building structure was inspected; they almost border on condition reports. His reports are full of photographs that clearly illustrate the problems encountered. He uses state-of-the-art measuring equipment to detect hidden but important flaws like moisture in the walls/subfloor and uneven floor levels that are not easy to see with the naked eye.I can understand why some vendors would be disappointed by Steve's reports, but ultimately he works for us buyers, and is there to protect us from buying defective properties. Personally, I would want my building inspector to be as diligent and strict as possible in assessing compliance to building standards. Buying a home is for most of us the biggest financial decision of our lives. There is no one else I'd rather use to ensure I have all the relevant information available to make an informed purchasing decision.Highly recommended.

Steve was excellent, the report he provides is highly detailed and helps you work out the current state of the building you are considering on buying. I have to say, given these difficult times to not be able to view places due to Covid lockdowns, Steve has made that process a hell of a lot easier. The report will cover every aspect of the building you can imagine, detailing areas of concern and photos to show what is going on if there is concern. Through out the whole process Steve has been an excellent communicator, breaking down the information he presents to a non-builder and giving tips on how to tackle things going forward if required. I am really happy with the help and information he is given and highly recommend his services. The pest report was also thorough and gave me confidence I needed in making some big decisions. Thanks guys – great stuff!

Honestly, Steve did an amazing job for us. It was our first home purchase, so scary enough on it's own without double guessing our decisions, so having a building inspection was enormously helpful. He's local knowledge, having done an apprenticeship in the area and being a former builder gave us a great deal of confidence in his work.He has a work ethic second to none (seriously I wish we could find a working builder with similar work ethic!...). He did the inspection Friday morning, was in the hospital with his kid over the weekend and we still had the report in our by Monday 11am.Report was 63 pages with a solid few hundred photos and explanations for everything, plus a fair bit of assistance on the phone

Steve's house inspection report and ihis recommendations saved me a lot of money and heartache. Because of issues with the house I wanted to buy, after the report I cancelled my offer.Steve recommended I engage a Structural Engineer to check out elements of the home and it was the best advice. If Steve recommends that you do that, follow his guidance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Home & Property Inspections

A home inspection is a well calculated and limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home. There are various home inspections that can be performed based on the need. East Gippsland Housing Inspections offers home inspection for the following:

  • Pre-Purchase Inspections

When inspecting a property, our team of pre-purchase property inspectors leave no stone unturned. We start by evaluating the living area which includes the kitchen, bathroom, ensuites, laundry, toilets, bedrooms, lounge and common areas, doors, windows, carpets and tiles, architraves, stairs, storage spaces and wardrobes to determine if any (major or minor) damage is present. Similarly, we inspect the outdoor elements such as stairs and decking, patios and pergolas, sheds and garages. We also check walls, lintels, doors, windows, water systems; as well as the site itself, including fences, driveways, any walking paths, steps to identify surface drainage and outbuildings. We also thoroughly examine the roof cavity (interior) for any problems with insulation, framing and sarking. For the outsides, we will inspect the home’s tiles, gutters, gutters, downpipes, vents, flues and eaves to detect any sort of damage or defect. 

Most of our inspections are completed within 24 hours of instruction but on special occasions, as in a pre-auction inspection, we will have your reports delivered the same day.
