New Home Building Inspections

The best way to protect your investment in your new home is to have a new home  inspection carried out. This will ensure that all work has been completed to an acceptable standard before you move in

Usually a new home building inspection is carried out when your builder is finished a stage (including house frame inspections, pre paint inspections, lock up inspections and pre handover inspections). We will identify any defects in your new home, as well as any non compliant issues.

Our rates start from $300 (inc GST)

Building & Pest Inspections

Our pre purchase building and pest inspections will  provide you with not only peace of mind but potentially save you a lot of money. You can choose to have either pre purchase building inspection or pest inspection or both.

With a pre purchase building inspection we will identify all major issues, (including any structural issues) as well as smaller defects for you. Our pest inspection will ensure that there are made aware of any pest infestations - especially termites.

Our rates start from $250 (inc GST)

Vendor Reports

Our vendor report provides you with detail of any major defects that your home has -  so  you can have the choice of rectifying them before you put your house up for sale.

A vendor report can also be used as a pre purchase inspection report by the prospective buyer as part of the selling process.

Our rates start from $350 (inc GST)

Maintenance Reports

A maintenance report provides you with information about any major defects and safety issues your home may have. The report lists out the work that needs to be done so there is no further deterioration.

Your maintenance report will give you confidence that your home is safe for both you and your family.

Our rates start from $350 (inc GST)

VCAT & Dispute Resolution

It is an extremely stressful time when your new home has building defects.  Unfortunately it is not always possible to resolve the dispute with your builder directly. This means you will have to escalate matters to the Domestic Building Resolution Victoria (DBRV) or even  (VCAT) to get the dispute resolved.

At New Home Building Inspections we have extensive experience in helping home owners prepare for both these dispute resolution options. This experience extends to being Independent Expert Witnesses at VCAT.

Slab Inspections

At New Home Building Inspections we find that slab inspections are one of the most popular stage inspections we perform for new homes. This is no surprise as you need to get the foundations of your new home right!  If there are issues with your concrete slab it can lead to structural issues. These issues include cracked walls, ceilings, floors and tiles. It may also mean that you can't even open your windows.

We do our concrete slab inspections in two parts. The first part is done BEFORE the concrete is poured, so if there are any issues at the preparation stage, including steel reinforcement and boxing it is picked up before the concrete is poured. The second part of our inspection is done AFTER the concrete is poured and we make sure the floor is straight and level as along with other factors.

HomeBuilder Grants

The Australian Government has recently announced HomeBuilder Grants of $25,000 for new home builds – including first home buyers. If you have been thinking of building your dream home then now could be the time to make that dream a reality. This is especially true as the new HomeBuilder Grants scheme only lasts until 31 …

The New Home Building Inspections Difference

We understand that buying a home is likely to be the biggest investment you will make for you and your family. The last thing you need is to buy a home and then find out soon after purchase that it has defects. Even worse, the defects require a lot of costly repairs.

Most people are not aware that in Australia, the general rule is ‘buyer beware’ when it comes to the sale of houses. This means that sellers are not obligated to let you know about even serious issues such as terminate infestations and structural issues. Check out our gallery for the many examples of common defects we find we do home inspections.

Every home is different. That is why we take the time to provide a customised inspection report that is easy to read and understand. It is also professionally written to Australian standards.

We are fully independent and not affiliated with any Estate Agents. Our only purpose is to provide you with an unbiased report. That’s why we have so many Google 5 Star reviews!

Whether you are buying a brand new home, an existing home, bidding at auction or thinking of buying an investment property you can trust us. This is because we have the knowledge, skills and experience so you know what you’re buying!

Testimonials

"This guy really knows his stuff . We employed Paul for a handover inspection on a new home with a few concerns we had . We got him out as a back up to voice concerns to our builder. What he found was amazing obviously him being in the industry himself has a good eye for detail.

Over 50 issues he pointed out and supplied a report of defects that were not built to Australian standards. The building company agreed with his report and fixed everything on it. I would have no hesitation in recommending him in the future.

Thanks so much."

We take COVID-9 serious. We also understand a lot of our clients are having homes built and we continue working to identify any defects or non compliant items to ensure that you get what you have paid for. Our vehicles have hand sanitizer on board and our inspectors wear gloves so we don’t need to make contact with any surfaces during an inspection of your property. For distancing restrictions, we ask that you let us attend the inspections on our own and we can send you a written report so no contact is needed.
