We service most of Tasmania with key locations throughout the state.
A building inspection is designed to give you independent and objective advice about the physical state of a building. This advice enables you to make an informed decision, usually about whether to purchase a property or not.
Inspection reports are a snapshot in time. Therefore, you should always ensure you refer to a current inspection.
These inspections are also carried out for the purpose of risk management, new construction management, dispute resolution, insurance claims, compliance with legislation and regulations and to inform renovation and extension decisions.
JBI continues its national expansion and is now delivering services throughout Hobart and the majority of Tasmania. The team is led by Paul Commerford and Kirt Walters who is an experienced builder from a local family based in Richmond.

What others are saying
"Brian was very helpful when I called him to get a quote. He wasn’t pushy at all like previous company’s I had spoken to. "May 23, 2014 by MelInspector Jim’s Building Inspections (Yokine, WA)
"I was really happy with the service I received from start to finish. Andrew was well-organized, arrived at the property on time, conducted a thorough inspection, answered all of my questions and sent a comprehensive report to me via email on the same day. Having a building inspection done was well worth the money because I was provided with a list of all of the potential problems which needed to be addressed with the property, many of which I would not have noticed myself. Very happy to recommend this service."April 22, 2015 by Marco SanInspector: Jim’s Building Inspections (Adelaide, SA)
