How much does a building inspection cost?

The prices of building inspection services vary based on the inspection type and the size of the property being inspected (prices may also differ from state to state). Whilst it’s reasonable to look for the cheapest inspection – it may not always result in the best outcomes. It pays to use an inspector with significant experience, the relevant qualifications, specialist equipment, proper insurance and the ability to produce high quality reports. The average price of our Building and Pest Inspection service is approximately $576 (May 2018)

How long does it take?

  • Depending on the property itself, we generally allow one hour for the inspection.
  • Some take less or more depending on the degree of accessibility and depending on the number of defects found.
  • We then prepare the report and liaise with the client on the findings.
  • The report is usually available within 24 hours of inspection.
