Is your home inspector a registered building practitioner?

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
  • Pre Sale Inspections
  • Pre Handover Inspections
  • Pre-Auction Inspections
  • Pest & Termite Inspections
  • Combined Building & Pest Inspections
  • Rental Property Evaluations

The main advantage of hiring a registered building practitioner is obvious, they are tested and approved professionals. This guaranties property owners that the license holder is a knowledgeable and capable builder who knows what they are doing. This gives property owners and managers a peace of mind, knowing that the work being conducted will be a job well-done. Honestly, you can’t say that with a non-licensed builder because their skills and knowledge have not yet been tested and proven in front of a board of professional home builders.

East Gippsland Housing Inspections have the qualifications approved by the Victorian Building Authority, take the advantage of using a registered tradesperson!

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.
