Which inspection would I require from Preferred Building Inspections to have if I was selling my property
Pre-Sale Inspection is the one required.
Is a Pre-Purchase Inspection really necessary?
A pre-purchase inspection is quite necessary, as it could in some cases save you $$ and so, can avoid potential issues and hidden costs. Preferred Building Inspections can help you obtain the benefit of having a building inspection report done, and thus providing you in advance to purchasing the property if there are any problems structrually, or just maintenance. The report could be used as a negotiable outcome where there are issues that may affect the settlement and final contract agreement. The report would benefit you long term as well.
How soon would the report be ready after inspection has taken place?
Usually within 24 hours, as long as they been paid in advance when invoiced.
Are the Inspectors actually qualified?
We have carried out more than 3,000 building inspections around Perth. Our building and property inspectors have carried out specialised inspection training specifically to meet the requirements of the Australian Standards For Building Inspections AS4349 1 - 2007 and are fully covered for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance. Our reports and inspections comply with the current relevant Australian Standards AS 4349.1 – 2007 - Inspection of buildings, Pre-purchase inspections— Residential buildings.

Does Preferred Building Inspections provide Pest Inspection?
Yes they do. The Australian Standards under AS4349.3-2010 Inspection of Buildings Part 3: Timber pest inspections. The purpose of the pest inspection is to provide advice about the condition of the property concerning timber pest activity as outlined in the Scope of this Agreement.This Standard provides minimum requirements for non-invasive inspection of buildings for the activity of timber pests and preparation of associated reports.
Can I contact the Inspector after I have received the Inspection Report?
The reports will be easy to understand. The Inspector will actually call you to debrief once the inspection has been completed and will send you the report within as long as its been paid in advance once invoiced or booked. Once you have read the report and still may have questions, please email your queries as we are busy attending to other jobs and may not be able to answer you clearly.
Why do you require payment upfront?
The reason we require payment upfront is because of our past experiences where after a debriefing of the property inspected, the client decides he has the information and therefore doesn't need to pay. This is not fair, as the inspector has allowed his time, etc to carry out the inspection. Inspections will be booked and completed ASAP required, however the report will be issued when payment confirmation has been made. Credit Card payments register instantly, EFT and direct transfers may take up to 2 days. To facilitate receiving your report as soon as possible we ask that you email to us a receipt of the bank transfer.
What type of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, credit cards, payment through Pay Pal, and direct deposit.
Do you travel over 50 km for an inspection in Perth?
Yes we do, but will be quoted accordingly to allow for petrol allowance.
