A visual building inspection report will provide a description of the property and report on any damage/issues and any conditions which if not addressed may cause further damage in the future. The inspector will also comment on general defects to the secondary and finishing elements of the property.

The inspector may also recommend you seek further advice from an appropriate trade professional regarding defects which are outside of the inspector’s area of expertise. These should be followed up prior to purchasing the property.

Please note a building inspection report is not a maintenance report which is available at an additional cost.

Buying a new home
Sherlock will inspect your home to the high standard that you would expect. We will access all areas of your property within the OHS guidelines. We encourage you to be present at the inspections and are more than happy to talk to you after you have the report.

Going to auction
Sherlock will inspect your home and advise you on any issues that may hold up the selling process. This inspection will also give the people buying your home confidence in the property, thus making the auction process easier for all concerned.

Let us help look after your investment

Ensure your investment is in good condition and being maintained. Sherlock will report on any potential or actual problems in the inspection such as termite or water/moisture issues. We work with you to ensure your investment is cared for.

When going into business
If you’re buying a factory or offices, it’s just as important to know of any potential issues. Sherlock will inspect your commercial property and inform you of any defects or pest problems.
