Dominic had my best interests at heart and gave the best detailed building report. As soon as I contacted him for a competitive quote he immediately contacted the real estate agent to inspect the property as quickly as he good. I highly recommend both Jim's building inspections and Dominic.

Pest Inspection at Moe area.

The Service was very good, it was done exceeding our expectation. The inspection was ordered for pest and the report was widely furnished with more technical information in regards with some building element's issue which is highly appreciated.

Extremely thorough, so professional and trustworthy.

I am so happy to have had Riccardo at my pre-handover inspection. He picked up everything that was either not compliant or just poor workmanship. The report was an eye opener and revealed areas that I can question with my builder. Without Riccardo's trained eye, I would not have picked up the areas that need immediate attention. Thank you kindly Riccardo, you are a blessing. To those of you living on Bribie Island, make sure you to contact Riccardo for a thorough analysis and a comprehensive report. You will not regret it.

I asked John to perform a building and pest inspection on a property for sale with very short notice. He arranged the whole thing with the real estate agent on my behalf in record time and provided a very thorough report the following day. He made the process so much easier than expected.
Big thank you :)

I have a few friends that work within the real estate business. I asked them for recommendations on who provides the most meticulous inspections. Both of them said that if they were to buy a house, they would use Gary Payne.

Meticulous, thorough and professional inspections. Reports are comprehensive and easily understood. Highly recommend Gary Payne to do building and pest inspections.

Reliable and Trust worthy service

Andy did a thorough and impressive report on the unit that I'm buying. I'm a first home owner so don't have a lot of experiences yet. So I asked him to inspect the unit when it's actually hadn't been finished. He couldn't inspect the unit the first time and was happy to come back again the 2nd time without any additional charges.
I'm very happy with the report as it has clear photos and clear explanations of areas of concern.
highly recommended and will work with him again

I have used Phil for multiple inspections since 2017 and he is fantastic. More recently I attended on site with him for an inspection and he explained issues as he identified them. His reports are thorough and he’s always happy to discuss elements of the reports.

Andrew carried an inspection on a pre purchase I was thoroughly satisfied with his observations and advice. He took time to call and discuss all the issues which were relevant communication skills were excellent. I end up purchasing this property and since I have recommended him to my children who were purchasing property. I found that he had massive care factor and expert knowledge in this field. i would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

David Dorcich inspected a home i was planning to purchase at Auction, he provided the building inspection report within 24 hours which was very helpful as the Auction was only 3 days after, the report was very detailed. David also took the time to explain all his findings over the phone which helped me understand all findings. I went to the Auction with confidence knowing all issues with the property and not therefore not having to worry if i was bidding on a property with major issues. Thanks David, i will use your services again on the next property i plan to buy.

Hi
I am building with one of the major builder and they reassured me that they have their own 3rd party inspectors to check through all the stages of build from checking of materials used as in contract till handover. But of course I would not take their words for it. Especially when there are so many inexperienced tradies around that go for fast job and fast money! Do you do such full stage inspection? How much will it cost and for which stage? Thanks matey!

Hi Elle, I totally agree with you, do not trust what the builder says regardless of the size, they always try to cover their fedects unless it’s too obvious or you bring it up. We did not do a full stage review, we only did a final stage inspection but even so lots of defects were identified, some of which you would never be aware of! It cost us only a couple of hundreds and it’s well worth it. The inspector gave us a very detailed inspection report plus lots of advice on how to deal with the builder which is very useful. Hope my answer helps.

Hi Ellen,

Z. Chen seems to agree with you, and I have to say, so do we. You want someone in your corner. We can certainly help you out here. In order to provide a quote, I need to get the local consultant to reach out to you directly and discuss your exact needs and offer a tailored solution. If you would like me to do this, you can email us at info@jimsbuildinginspections.com.au and provide the property address (lot number is fine) and your best phone number to catch you on.

Hi Ellen,
I totally again with Z.Chen.
My builder promised my wife and I that he would build our master piece, and just before the build started I said I was getting my own private inspector in and said that I'd have to pay a admin fee to allow the inspector on-site. So that scared us off as that fee wasn't in our budget. We do kick ourselves for not getting every stage done, but we are so glad that we did get the final inspection done as there were so many defects that I didn't even see and I would visit the property every 3rd day. We were ment to be settling this friday but thats no longer happening due to all the problems that were found.
I highly recommend that you do get every stage checked yes it may cost some $$$ but don't do the same mistake that I did. Hope this can help
