BUYING A HOUSE
A Pre–Purchase Building Inspection provides you with the information you need to make a sound financial decision, plan for renovations, budget for repairs and ultimately confirm if the property is worth the asking price.
Master Property Inspections is not your typical run of the mill building inspection company. We comply with the Australian Standards (Pre-Purchase inspections – Residential Buildings AS 4349.1-2007) and go over and above with additional maintenance repairs required. We look for all the structural related defects but we also keep in mind the minor issues as well so you will have a guide. We will assist you with repair budgets so when you make an offer or we have come in when you have signed a contract subject to a building inspection, our price and service also consists of being a building consultant to renegotiate or walk away. Price is very important when hiring a building inspector but the over and above service we provide will exceed your expectations.
TERMITE & TIMBER PEST INSPECTIONS
When looking to purchase a new property in Australia, it’s important to get a Termite and Timber Pest Inspection to check for any termite activity or timber damage.
Termites tend to avoid open air and bright lights, and as a result, their colonies are typically underground, out of sight or within wood materials so more often than not, termite damage is hidden away from sight. For this reason, it’s important to get a professional pest or termite inspector who knows common areas to check for termite damage or conditions conducive to termites.
Our pest and termite inspections involve a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of the property combined with equipment to help assist our process to find evidence of termite activity and/or termite workings or damage.
The areas that will be inspected include the interior and exterior of the building as well as accessible roof cavities and subfloor areas, not forgetting the property itself up to 30mtrs radius.
The findings of the inspection will then be noted in your termite and timber pest report which will be issued via email, including any recommendations of a termite treatment and/or management plan.
All our Building and Pest Inspectors have public liability and professional indemnity insurance, so you can make your next purchase with complete confidence.

Meth use and the discovery of drug and meth labs across Australia is on the rise. Smoking meth in your home can leave behind a residue which is toxic, not only to those who live in the property, but also to anyone who may access the property. Master Property Inspections are now offering quick, affordable, reliable and confidential methamphetamine screen assessments
THE HEALTH RISKS
Exposure to methamphetamine can cause a wide range of health problems including:
- Behavioral problems in children
- Loss of appetite
- Respiratory issues
THE FINANCIAL RISKS
Contamination levels greater than .50μg per 100cm2 are dangerous and require a property to be remediated which can be a very costly exercise. Remediation might involve treating or ripping out carpet, soft furnishings, removing furniture, wall linings, ceilings, electrical wiring, air conditioners, heating and insulation. Discovering contamination early on makes remediation less expensive. It also means that meth-using tenants can be evicted before contamination levels increase any further.
WE TEST FOR THE PRESENCE OR RESIDUE OF METHAMPHETAMINE
Smoking meth regularly can return property contamination readings as high as those produced by a meth lab.
Meth labs can be found almost anywhere – in houses, apartments, cars, storage units, holiday homes and motorhomes.
