Pre-Auction Building Inspections Melbourne

Are you planning to buy a new property from an auction in Melbourne as your next purchase? If yes, you must do everything to ensure a good value property.

One of the important reports to help property buyers make an informed decision is a pre-auction building inspection and pest inspection.

Many real estate agents strongly recommend these pre-purchase inspections and reports, especially when acquiring a new house in Melbourne.

Pre-purchase building inspections are not required but a must for potential home buyers. Pre-auction inspections, also called pre-auction pest inspections, must be done by professional inspectors who know the job.

Problems faced when buying/selling property:

Structural issues:

Properties may have structural issues such as cracks in  foundation/walls, roof leaks, uneven floors that can be expensive to fix 

Pest infestations:

Pests such as termites, rodents or ants can cause significant damage to a property & may be difficult to detect without a professional inspection.

Plumbing issues:

Leaks or blockages in the plumbing system can cause water damage & may require costly repairs or replacements. 

Compliance issues:

Some properties may have compliance issues such as unapproved structures or additions, which cause problems with local council regulations & affect property’s value. 

Defects issues:

Major components of a building, including the exterior, ceilings, walls, floors, windows, doors inspection of any structural building defects.

Insulation issues:

Poor insulation or ventilation can cause energy inefficiencies, leading to high heating & cooling costs for residents

Why Pre-Auction Home Inspection Report Is Important


Pre-auction building inspections are the same as pre-purchase building inspections. However, with pre-auction inspections, you need to get your report completed before auction day ensuring there are no hidden surprises and defect free of structural major issues.

Once you have bought a property at auction, you cannot back out and you cannot ask for a building pest inspection, you need to arrange a building inspection before auction. Once you have made the winning bid, it is too late. This means you may end up with a property that may have a lot of unexpected repair costs. This is especially true as the seller is under no obligation to let you know about any structural defects the property may have.

You are assured when engaging House Inspections, that you will receive a strictly independent building inspection report that will be comprehensive giving you peace of mind . 

How A Pre-Auction Building Inspection Affects Your Finances

Getting a new property from an auction still requires you to spend any amount of money, depending on the bids you place. Therefore, you always want to ensure that every penny you spend will be worth it. Having a pre-auction building inspection gives you peace of mind and creates a financial sense.

A qualified building inspector in Melbourne will provide you with a detailed report about the property available for auction. This will help you to have a holistic view of the property and assess whether it is worth the buy.

A pre-auction inspection is an excellent service that should be done before placing your bids. Included in many pre-auction inspection services are pest inspections and overall house inspections. A property inspection is being performed by a building inspector. A detailed inspection report will show photos of the defects, their position, and how best to rectify them.

Advance Tools & Technology​

Moisture Meters

Moisture meters are used to detect the presence & levels of moisture within building materials such as wood, drywall, & concrete. These meters help identify areas of potential water damage, leaks, or moisture intrusion, which leads to structural issues or mold growth.


Thermal Camera

Infrared camera building inspections identify problems by viewing differences in temperature on a gradient scale through thermal imaging. his is a non-invasive temperature measurement tool that can keep you from spending money on repairs in the future.


A borescope is a flexible tube with a camera and light attached to it. It’s used to visually inspect areas that are difficult to access, such as inside wall cavities, ductwork, or pipes. By using borescope, our inspectors can examine the condition of hidden components and identify any defects or damages.

Termatrac Device

Termatrac’s detection technology is unique to the market, designed and specifically calibrated to detect termites and other insect activity. The radar technology confirms movement by penetrating through most building materials to locate and track termite and other insect activity.
