Q: Can I attend the inspection?

Q: Does the report include photos?
A: Yes, our handover inspection reports contain digital photos of the defects found.
Q: Do you comply with a Code of Conduct and a Code of Ethics?
A: Yes, we strictly adhere to a Code of Conduct and a Code of Ethics. Please view ours by clicking here.
Q: How long will the inspection take onsite?
A: The length of time the inspection takes is affected by a range of factors including the type, size, method of construction, whether the client will be onsite and overall quality of the build. It generally takes at least one hour but may take two or more.
Q: Is there an inspection agreement that I need to accept?
A: Yes, all inspectors are legally required to provide an inspection agreement prior to an inspection. When we receive a booking request, we will email to you a link to our terms and conditions for you to read and accept. If you have any questions, please ask for clarification before the inspection proceeds.
Q: What are the next steps?
A: Once you have requested a booking and accepted our quote, we will send you a confirmation email of the date and time for the inspection together with a link to our terms and conditions for you to read and accept. A separate tax invoice will be emailed to you so that you may pay by credit card online. We require acceptance of our terms and payment before the inspection. Book Here.
