“Select Inspections are an excellent operator – efficient and thorough. The inspection was done in a timely manner and the information was presented in a detail but clear and easy to understand format. Our inspector was more than happy to answer questions I had regarding some of the observations outlined in the inspection report. I was so pleased with his service, I recommended him to friends who have also been really happy with his work. Thanks Select!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My contract includes a Structural Inspection clause. Can I have a maintenance report completed?
The above reports both comply with AS 4349-2007 and the REIWA Major Structural Defects clause.
Q: How much do you get paid from your inspection partners?
We receive nothing from our inspection partners. Our partner relations are based on mutual trust and respect. We trust them to do quality work. We refer clients to one another regularly. It’s a win for our respective clients and for each other. In turn, our partners have partnerships with other suppliers who provide you with an end-to-end service.
Q: How much does a pre-purchase structural inspection cost?
Pre-purchase structural inspections start at $297 for units and apartments, and $397 for villas and houses. Once we have more information, we can provide you with a written quote.
Q: What type of report do I need?
If your contract includes the standard REIWA Major Structural Defects clause, you should obtain a structural report completed in accordance with Annexure A of AS 4349-2007. Both the above reports mentioned above comply with the standard. If your contract includes another "structural defects" clause, then seek advice from your buyer's agent, lawyer or conveyancer as to the most appropriate choice of inspection.
Q: How long will the report take?
You will receive your pre-purchase property inspection report via email within two working days of receipt of your order.
Q: When should I obtain a structural inspection?
The REIWA Major Structural Defects clause requires you to complete the inspection within a specified period. Failure to obtain your report within this timeframe could result in the clause being waived. And that could mean being forced to buy a property with a major structural defect.
Q: Are your inspectors qualified to complete a structural inspection?
Pre-purchase property inspections are completed by Jason Cotton from Select Property Inspections. Jason is a licensed building surveyor (BSP2411) and has completed over 7,000 property inspections.
