Building Inspection Prices Vary
Canberra Building Inspections Prices vary. Many people from Canberra want the full Pre-Purchase Inspection for selling. That includes a Building Inspection, a Termite and Timber Pest Inspection, as well as an Energy Rating. Plus the Compliance Report. Plus, the government file of plans.
Our Pre-Purchase Building Inspection – just before you buy – is also very popular in ACT and NSW. In ACT it is popular just before any purchase. And some bank lenders insist on it for a unit purchase. Also, some people like it as a second opinion against the seller’s building inspector. That is fine too.
Travel Costs to Outer Areas
Generally, travel costs will vary, but travelling to Yass and Bungendore in NSW is within the below prices. So is Googong, Karabar and Queanbeyan, within New South Wales. So, with Canberra in the centre, you can see how far out we will travel and back.
Towns beyond Yass are extra. We have been as far as Major’s Creek, Jindabyne and Lake Eucumbene. That is, we travel a couple of hours there, and back. But if you require it you pay for the travel. We do not mind travelling. Australia is a magnificent country, and it is a privilege to experience it.
Call us for the price of the travel time.
All prices here are plus GST of 10% as below.
Other Inspection Works
There are also Staged Construction Inspections, different Commercial Inspections, and Dilapidation Reports. There are also Legal Reports, Expert Witness Reports, Court Attendance and more.
Just ring, and ask. Our Building and Pest Inspector is registered here at Access Canberra. Our number is 111.
How we work is that we try to do your work, as we would want you to do your work for us. We try to treat others the same as we would like them to treat us.
If you have a last minute postponement there may be a postponement fee. We can speak of it if it happens. Postponing the inspection two days beforehand is no problem.
Postponing the day before puts us at a disadvantage, and we know it is generally no fault of you. Often it is just bad luck. But it is fair that the client share some of this luck if they postpone.
So, we think postponing the day before the inspection should attract a fee. The same would be for cancellations. On this, we like to discuss it job by job with the client should it happen.
Our Prices Are For Averaged Sized Buildings
Prices are as follows, and are for a usual, an average sized property getting the inspection, in average condition.
For example, a single storied, three bedroom house with two bathrooms, a dining and living room and an alfresco would be usual.
Tell us if it is bigger, has more rooms, more than one floor, or if is two residences, please. Also, please provide us the address so we can see the property online. For more on this please see this page Special Conditions on Prices.
