My husband engaged Peter to complete a building inspection on the home we are buying. Peter crawled all over the house and provided a very detailed report and provided great direction on what to look out for with preventative maintenance. His website is also a great place for tips on what to look out for and helps improve your knowledge. Is the price more expensive than other reports, yes. Do you get value for report when making such a substantial purchase, absolutlely. Would highly recommend to anyone who really wants to know what they are buying.
If you want someone to provide you with a comprehensive, not biased building inspection report in an easy to understand format, then Peter will provide you with this service. His report also included helpful information in regard to future maintenance needs too. Thank you! Kind regards, R Federico.
Peter was strongly recommended to me I’ve used him on a couple of occasions he saved me on both times making a major mistakes.Hes been very helpful a willing to show me things that will help me in the future when looking at property.Very approachable if I ever need advice.When it comes to buying property you want this man in your corner.
Peter carried out a detailed, timely inspection and report. His report makes use of photos which are referenced to his findings and observations – very helpful pre-purchase and future reference. He was happy to spend time ensuring you understood his findings and take questions. Bruce Wallace December 2019.
I called Peter while looking for a building inspector for our new house build. Peter gave me some terrific advice about needing to find a structural engineer and emphasised the need to get footings, slab and frame inspected correctly at the appropriate time to ensure the builder is doing their job correctly. He said the engineers needed to compare the plan against what they see and do specification checks. Peter gave me some terrific information to help me avoid other companies who would take the money but provide inappropriate reports at the end of the day. I really appreciated Peters honesty, experience and willingness to assist. Regards Craig.
We had a fantastic experience with Peter. He is honest and will give you a true picture of the property. Peter was very thorough and drew our attention to extensive problems with a property (which meant the property was uninsurable). We will definitely use Peter again for building inspections and his service is worth every cent.
I would never use anyone else to inspect a property I’m about to purchase. Peter is thorough, knowledgeable and frank when communicating the pros and cons of a property. We’ve used Peter twice and still feel relieved that he saved us from buying ‘problems’. He’s also incredibly committed to helping people learn what to look for themselves.
Peter was recommended by my friend, and I’ll definitely refer him to my other friends. He is so experienced. He always thinks more carefully and closely. He stands on clients’ side. Excellent job!
My husband found Peter on Google as our inspector due to very informative and helpful blogs that Peter wrote about building inspections. We are very happy we engaged Peter’s services as the experience was great. We appreciate the information, the thorough inspection, the advice on what to look out for in the future to make sure it doesn’t get worse. It was our first experience with pre-purchase house inspection but we could not have selected a better inspector. really detailed debrief on site after inspection and very detailed report the same day. Once again, thank you so much and totally recommend. We also appreciate his advice on pest control inspector who we were satisfied with as well completely.
Have used Peter on multiple occasions and will continue to do so. Not cheap but would not use anyone else.
Peter assisted with my query. He was honest and told me it wasn’t something he could assist with and pointed me in the right direction, saving me a lot of money and from the wrong advice. Thank you very much, Peter.
Peter is fabulous. From the first initial phone call to see about engaging his services Peter gave me invaluable knowledge which helped me to even choose my solicitor. He spent a great amount of time at the property I am looking at purchasing and then sent the detailed report the following day. While on site he walked me around and showed me what he found, and also gave me information which is helping now towards the end of settlement. Peter advised I was able to contact him at any stage to ask for help, information, expertise. I have done this and Peter was more than happy to help. His loyalty to his customers rather than the sellers and realtors is remarkable. I cannot recommend Peter more highly and will be engaging his services in the future for the remodelling.
I have used Peter many time for pre-purchase inspections. He provides an in-depth service, he is incredibly thorough. I have used another company earlier this year and was disappointed that the inspection was nowhere near Peter’s standard and the report was hard to interpret. Peter’s reports are clear and easy to understand highlighting problems without being alarmist. I trust his judgement completely.
My decision to engage Peter to conduct an independent building inspection of my property and his subsequent detailed report supported by more than 70 photos has been the most important decision I have made in recent years. His report identified 3 major issues that have not only prevented potential disaster but also many thousands of dollars. I received his report the same day he did the inspection and glanced through it. At the same time, I had reason to call an electrician. Peter had noted the potential for damage to the wiring in my roof space space most likely caused by rats chewing the wiring. Sure enough, the electrician confirmed this reality and the foil ceiling insulation had to be removed so the full extent of damage to the wiring could be seen and rectified. Peter’s report thus saved me from a potential fire in my ceiling and possibly my life. Secondly, he noted termite activity on some of the sub-floor concrete stumps. I would never have seen this evidence of termite activity myself because of the position of the stumps inside the sub-floor space. I immediately engaged Peter’s recommended pest inspector Mark Southam who did a thorough inspection followed by barrier treatment. So, my timber house is now protected for the next 5 years. Thirdly, Peter reported evidence of hail damage on my roof about which I had no knowledge. I already had a claim about a leaking skylight lodged with my insurance company, and I lodged another claim for the hail damage. Investigation of this by the insurance assessor found extensive hail damage to the entire roof and I have just been informed that the whole roof will be replaced under my insurance policy. These are major findings that Peter’s report alerted me to and I am forever grateful that I found his comprehensive website and contacted him. I wanted to know the condition of my property and get maintenance recommendations because I was tossing up whether to downsize or stay put. What I learned from Peter’s extensive report saved my house, will add value and further discussions with him have given me direction in dealing with the less critical aspects of maintenance and prevention into the future. Also, I have decided to stay put because I like my house and when the new roof is shining in the sun, I will be confident that all is well with my home. Thank you Peter.
We have had Peter do all our pre-sale inspections and keep coming back. In the past he has saved us from buying a house with severe rising damp hidden behind some sheeted walls which could have been a disaster. Most recently he saved us $5k on the purchase price of a property after we negotiated with the sellers based on Peter’s report. He reports, like his inspections, are thorough, easy to follow and worth every cent.
Awesome service! Top quality advice that saved me a fortune. Peter didn’t just write an extensive report, he made sure I understood what it all meant, so I could avoid trouble next time. If he says there is likely to be a problem, you can bet there is. If he recommends getting a specialist to look at something, DO IT! I will definitely be calling him next time.
Peter’s passion for his work had definitely one of the best if not the best building inspector in QLD. This is the second time I have used Peter’s service, as always he went the extra mile to ensure buyer is best informed about the single biggest investment one will make. Not only he provide the best advice possible, one may not realize how much resistance Peter can get from the selling agent who only welcome inspectors that work in their favor. I am so happy with his work that I encourage Peter to write a book about what he does and share with people who are willing to do the right things. Well done Peter!!! Gary
Initially we reached out to QLD Home Buyers Inspection Service given concerns with the contrast of proposed work efforts outlined in quotes for a roof repair. Without a doubt Peter is very approachable, incredibly generous of time, honest, knowledgeable and demonstrated a genuine interest in ensuring the best client outcome. Extremely helpful and professional.
I’ve used Peter three times now, for inspecting an old Queenslander (which I quickly learned was a money pit), a townhouse and a studio. Peter is extremely knowledgeable and is all for the customer, and making sure they know exactly what they are purchasing. He even answers calls or questions after the fact and even on prospective purchases. Excellent service. Highly recommend.
Peter came recommended as someone who will thoroughly inspect a property while working clearly in the interest of the buyer rather than the housing industry. He crawled around underneath the house, went into the roof as well as up onto the roof and saved us from buying a property that would have turned into an absolute money-pit. His reports are detailed, extensive and worth every penny.
