Cost of a Building and Pest Inspection in Melbourne

Never buy a property without a full building inspection conducted by a VBA-registered building practitioner. It's just not worth it.

Is cost important when considering your Building inspector?

No, it should never be the ultimate test if you are hiring a building and pest inspector to conduct a building inspection, and yet when future clients ring, the first and only question is always, “How much for a Building and Pest Inspection?” It is so infuriating, they should ask questions like, “Are you registered with the VBA as a building practitioner? How long have you been in business? What is checked during the building and pest inspection?””Can I please have your registration details to check with the VBA if your credentials check out?”

With most properties in Melbourne costing close to a million dollars plus, it’s so important to check out your future building inspector. Price,  although important, is not as important as detailing his or her qualifications first, as not all building inspectors are the same, and not all doctors are the same, In life, we make choices that we need to live by. Don’t be the one who only goes by the price and finds out later that your building inspector is not registered and you are stuck with being unable to terminate the contract or renegotiate.

Yes, this happens to so many people that they find after the inspection that their building inspector is not registered, and therefore they find themselves in no man’s land with nowhere to go unless the vendor allows them to conduct another pre-purchase building and pest inspection with another inspector who is registered.

As the industry in Victoria is unregulated, anyone can call themselves a building inspector and conduct building inspections. Many people get caught, so buyers beware. Do your research before hiring a building inspector based only on price.,
