Jim’s Building Inspections Melbourne & VIC services all of Victoria, 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.
Building 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.

Jim’s Building Inspections originated in Melbourne in 2011. Each of our team members operate in territories that they are familiar with and as a consequence they are often the local go to expert for that area of building work. For example, inner city and inner urban construction around Melbourne and Port Melbourne, Richmond in the east and Yarraville in the west.
Team members have specific experience with weatherboard construction, Victorian and Edwardian homes and Californian Bungalows. Our team also have extensive experience in new construction supervision with some of Melbourne’s major and prestige builders and know what to look for in terms of timber frame, brick construction and even infill developments.
