We highlight any issues

to enable you to complete any potential remedial work


House Pre-Sale Inspection

Before you decide to present your home or investment property to the market for sale, we encourage you to obtain a pre-sale home inspection assessment from BuildQual. Our comprehensive reports will highlight any issues with the structure, to enable you to complete any potential remedial work. You can then present the report to your real estate agent, showing clearly the state of the property, and therefore making your house even more attractive to potential buyers.

What do we look for? 

When we assess a property, our qualified inspectors cover the entire dwelling, working methodically through a detailed checklist. As part of our assessment, we check:


Moisture readings


Wall alignment


Major structural defects and faults


Minor structural defects


Suggested future maintenance


Floor levels – on an as-required basis and at extra cost.
