Building Inspection Sydney

Why is a building inspection so critical

How to avoid the building crisis in Sydney. Protect your family and your financial investment.

Building Inspection Sydney uses a technology-first approach to uncover hidden and hard-to-find defects that no other instruments can detect. Then our building inspectors explain the technical details to you in plain English. All within 24 hours.

The growing number of building defects emerging in Sydney is terrifying! Every day our Building Inspectors discover more and more major building defects. This is mainly due to a self-regulated Construction Industry. The former New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejikan says the system of regulation in the building system is not working. Ms Berejikan actioned an immediate repose by appointing a Building Commissioner with the goal of restoring the transparency, accountability, and quality of work that the community expects from the Building & Construction Industry.


That's why it's now more than ever that Buyers should obtain a professional building inspection report. The small amount you pay for a pre-purchase building inspection in Sydney could easily save you thousands – possibly tens of thousands of dollars – in the long run, but you should know: every Building Inspector in Sydney is NOT the same. Some are in fact qualified and licenced, like us, but you won’t find another that uses the same technology and rigorous building inspection techniques to find everything lurking under the surface.

That’s a problem because the majority of defects are hidden from plain sight and you can’t simply “eyeball” a building inspection like so many Building Inspectors in Sydney try to do!

If you don’t get the right type of building inspection, major defects could appear later – which can lead to severe financial loss, injury and in some cases, even death. That’s why a pre-purchase building inspection is considered to be a minimum level of due diligence when buying or selling a property. Whether its an apartment inspection or a house inspection, it's essential that you protect your family and financial investment!
