What You Get

  • Identification of minor defects like expected property maintenance
  • Detailed photos describing defects
  • Works required to address these problems with the building
  • Which trades are required to do the work

What others are saying

  • "I was really happy with the service I received from start to finish. Andrew was well-organized, arrived at the property on time, conducted a thorough inspection, answered all of my questions and sent a comprehensive report to me via email on the same day. Having a building inspection done was well worth the money because I was provided with a list of all of the potential problems which needed to be addressed with the property, many of which I would not have noticed myself. Very happy to recommend this service."
