We service most of Tasmania with key locations throughout the state.
A building inspection is designed to give you independent and objective advice about the physical state of a building. This advice enables you to make an informed decision, usually about whether to purchase a property or not.
Inspection reports are a snapshot in time. Therefore, you should always ensure you refer to a current inspection.
These inspections are also carried out for the purpose of risk management, new construction management, dispute resolution, insurance claims, compliance with legislation and regulations and to inform renovation and extension decisions.
