Professional Home inspection Caveat

These days, it is uncommon to employ an architect to design and renovate homes. This can lead to corners being cut, and shoddy building work being done. As a property owner, it is important for your peace of mind to engage a home inspection to ensure you’re not hit with any nasty surprises in years to come. This is especially true if you are renting and not physically at the property to deal with issues as they arise.

Our company is a trusted provider of home inspection reports. Also, we deliver a fully costed, comprehensive report with recommendations to engage professional services as necessary. On this page, we explain some of our most frequently asked questions, such as ‘what does a home inspection include’ and ‘why should I get a home inspection’

What do I get out of a home inspection?

As followed by law, home inspectors must provide written home inspector contracts and written inspection reports after a costed inspection.

  • Roof descriptions and systems such as solar heating and flashlights.
  • Lighting
  • Electrical components
  • Plumbing systems including traps, pipes and water tanks.
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Interior design and features.
  • Fireplaces
  • Insulation
  • Ventilation

As you’d expect, this is a comprehensive list to ensure you have received a home inspection for your peace of mind.

What’s out of scope in a home inspection reports?

Keep in mind Home Inspection Caveat only cover what inspectors can see and access. They are not engineers and do not take apart components of your home for their report. Further, it is especially important that nothing is broken or misplaced during the inspection as we are liable for any such damages.

Furthermore, things you will not find in an inspection report include swimming pools (we are not qualified to comment on large in-ground water systems), fire and smoke systems, appliances, TV satellites, sheds, asbestos, or pest control. This is because these are specialist bodies of knowledge which are managed by professional services companies.

What is a home inspection meant to do?

In a nutshell: create peace of mind.

Home inspections:

  • Unearth potential environmental issues
  • Predict and uncover any structural issues
  • Determine any potential legal encumbrances
  • Make sure what has been promised is what is being sold to you if you’re a home buyer.

Do not buy a home without having carried out a home inspection. This is a vital mistake which many first home buyers usually make.

How much do home inspections cost?

From our experience, expect prices to vary based on the size of the home.

Small homes can be $200-300 for around 1000 sq ft.

Medium-sized homes can be around $300-$350

Larger homes can be around $400-$450.

As you can imagine, these are not bank-breaking costs and are well worth the investment, particularly if you are renting.
