OUR DIFFERENCE

See the most of what we got

Independent Property Inspections was established by builders with over 30 years experience across family homes, investment developments, home repairs
and renovations. We saw a real need in the market for reliable, independent building inspectors offering consistent costs and results with the backing of a professional company structure. The IPI process was developed by designing custom technology that incorporated the expertise of our builders with
Australian Standards.

This enabled us to provide all IPI building and pre-purchase inspectors across the country with consistent, thorough procedures. Additionally, our inspectors abide by a strict Code of Ethics, to ensure each client experiences the value and quality promise of IPI. This means you deal with a transparent system which gives you complete peace of mind from negotiation, to the moving day and years after.

  • The expertise of a building professional, without the “tradie” attitude.

  • Plain language reports you can understand and use to empower your negotiations.

  • Regularly trained personnel to maintain up-to-date standards for compliant reports.

  • Full time Professional building, pre-purchase and pest inspectors, abiding by our strict Code of Ethics to ensure a transparent and consistent process.

5 STAR CONDITION RATING

A rating system is a great way to get a snapshot of a property or compare several properties. As a leader in building and pre-purchase inspections, IPI developed a new rating system based on the Australian Standards. By matching the Standards we developed a checklist and a software to guide the inspector and generate consistent reports which can be available delivered same day.

With each Independent Property Inspection Report you will receive the rating on the condition of the property. In a typical 3 bedroom home, the rating is based on the inspection of 350 items, and 1296 possible defects. This increases in larger properties.

The check covers all structural components of the house including walls, floors, ceiling, roof, foundation and framing. We then check everything above, underneath and around the house including all the dark and dusty corners. Our system ensures that no latch, cupboard, hinge, tap or door remains untested.

Each item is weighted by importance to contribute to the overall score. The result is that aside from the thorough and detailed report you also get a simple rating to summarise the state of your home. As a seller, the rating demonstrates the depth of the building inspection, minimising the chance of the buyer insisting on another test and delaying the sale.

Most professional inspection ever. Sam was very thorough. Will use as a guide to repairs and keep watch on items in the future. Re-installed faith in the whole home inspection profession.

William Palladino

I just wanted you know your work resulted in a re-negotiation of the contract and provided me with the leverage to get over $3,200 in price concessions from the seller to fix the problems you found. Your fee was the best $385 I spent in this whole process, Sam Duro did a great job and I received more than my money’s worth. Thank you.

Kim Hamilton

Sam Duro was very thorough, yet finished in a timely manner. He was very professional and very polite & helpful. He helped make what could have been an unpleasant & apprehensive situation a very easy, comfortable & pleasant process. We were at the inspection; I was also very impressed with the care & respect he displayed for the present owner’s property. We will definitely refer you to friends and family & intend to use your services in our future endeavors.
