Knock Down Rebuild Inspection

As new land in the inner suburbs is no longer available, more and more people are choosing to build a new home on the site of an existing house, known as a “Knock Down Rebuild”. Building a new home in a built-up street often has many more challenges for the builder than in new estates, and the value of the property is usually much greater, which is why it is so important to have your new home inspected…

Whether it’s your first, second, or subsequent home, making the decision to build your dream home on your existing home site is an exciting one, however this can soon change to a nightmare when the quality is not up to standard, and issues start to arise.

We help every step of the way

As you have no-doubt heard, building a new home can, and often does go wrong…

The main problem is that the building industry is self-regulated, and if
you don’t have experience and expert knowledge in building and home
construction, or do not have a thorough understanding of the building codes and standards, many of these issues and defects will go un-noticed, until sometimes many years later, when it’s too late or too difficult to have the builder rectify it.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend that you have us inspect pre slab pour, frame stage, pre plaster, fixing and waterproofing, and at the pre handover. If we inspect all 5 of these stages, there is nothing that we will not get to inspect on your new home, ensuring that all areas are properly inspected. We also offer a bundle deal for all 5 stages, saving you money on your knock down rebuild project.

The inspections for your knock down rebuild project will normally take 1-2 hours each, and unlike most inspection companies, our detailed pre inspection reports will be completed and sent to you within just a couple of hours of the inspection, allowing the builder to start working on the issues immediately.

In order to provide you with the best possible service, we require a PDF copy of the following documents;

        • Building plans
