Yes, you are welcome to meet the building inspector on site near the end of the house inspection, i.e. about 60 minutes after the inspection appointment time as this gives us time to systematically inspect the structure and test items and systems on the property in accordance with AS4349.1.

If you are available to meet on site, the Property Inspector can go through the findings verbally immediately after the inspection and clarify each point raised. If you are not able to meet on site, the inspector will phone you after you receive the report and go through the report verbally. In both situations, the Inspector will email and text the report to you.

We prefer bank transfer (EFT) as the invoice will have the inspectors bank account payment details, we accept credit cards such as Visa and Mastercard but unfortunately not AMEX or Diners Card. Payment can also be made in cash on site. An invoice will accompany your pre-inspection agreement that will email and text to your smartphone.

No, we do not reduce the price for cash payment. Our reports automatically generate a tax invoice and all of our payments are recorded in our financial system.

Any building work is possible but we recommend that clients get advice from a structural engineer or builder first before any work proceeds.
