FAQ – Adelaide Home Inspection

What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a visual, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home that provides one of the most valuable indicators when deciding to purchase a property.

Our inspections provide an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the home, providing you with an expert third party opinion and professional report on the condition of the property.

Our inspection reports provide advice regarding the incidence of major defects and an opinion regarding the incidence of minor defects, relative to the condition of similar homes that have been reasonably well maintained.

Our inspections comply with the requirements of the current Australian Standards and we inspect the following areas, where safe and reasonable access is available;

(a) The interior of the home.

(b) The roof space.

(c) The exterior of the home.

(d) The sub-floor space.

(e) The roof exterior.

(f) The property within 30 m of the home subject to inspection.
