Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I must have read dozens of reviews and sample reports for home building and pest inspections (and gotten quotes all along the spectrum) before I decided on Inspect East. The reviews absolutely do not lie. Brett is meticulous, diligent, scrupulous, and worth every penny. We had entered into a contract of sale that had a 7 day cooling period (to allow for inspections). The house was brand new and freshly built by licensed builders, who were also the vendors. Consequently, I wasn’t expecting any issues, and only engaged Brett out of an abundance of caution. I’m SO glad I did – he identified a number of major defects that were not visible on typical property inspection. His report was extremely thorough and transparent, and each comment was accompanied by photographic proof. His follow-up was fantastic, and he made himself available for every question I had. I’ve seen reports from other inspection companies that friends have commissioned, and they pale in comparison. Thanks to Brett, the vendors agreed to fix all of the major defects, and I was pleased to pay Brett to go out there again to verify the fixes. I honestly think that the vendors would have worked extra hard at them knowing Brett was on the way for a second time. I’m now really looking forward to the settlement of my dream home and I am grateful to Brett for his impeccable work.

Incredibly grateful to Brett for this thoroughness and advice. We engaged Brett to view our property prior to cooling off period and we are extremely grateful we did.

The report highlighted issues with the house we were not made aware of. Our builder did an inspection and he also noted the same issues highlighted in the report. As a result, we subsequently backed out of the sale before the cooling off period.

The vendor came back and offered to renegotiate, and we were able to negotiate a lower price taking into account the expected cost of renovations.

Vendor got the sale and we bought our dream house in our dream locations.

Very grateful for Brett’s services as he has saved my partner and I an incredible amount of $.

We are first home buyers and I found Inspect Easy when looking for a building inspector. It had a 4.9 rating and as I looked through the reviews I could easily see why. Brett was courteous, flexible and willing to work with the property agent, especially since the house was tenanted. I met him immediately after the inspection and his love for buildings and construction was so obvious! The property report was super minute and detailed. He spoke to us at 8.30pm that night and explained everything we asked him. Even though the property looked dated, he assured us of the strong construction and also the repair work that it would entail. His report gave us the confidence to fix our budget. We knew exactly what we were getting into. Unfortunately, we lost the auction but that was our luck. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Brett for our next inspection, whenever that comes up. Gems like Brett are hard to find! Smitharead more

There are not enough words to say how helpful Brett has been and how thankful we are for all of his help! From the minute we first contacted Brett he was so accommodating and explained the entire process. After having so many issues with our first home purchase we were trying to avoid our next home having the same stresses attached to it, Brett was so understanding! Brett was very thorough with our Pest & Building inspection that some major defects that could cause us some serious issues were located, allowing us to successfully negotiate a $10k decrease on our original offer. We contacted Brett so much he should be on our Christmas card list! THANK YOU BRETT!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!! I will be recommending you to EVERYONE!!read more

I would strongly recommend Brett to everyone for his building inspection services. I contacted Brett to do a building inspection at short notice for a property I was interested in but unsure about. He liaised with the Agent and turned around a quick inspection and report on the same day before the auction was due that week. This confirmed my suspicions about the property and the quality of the building, saving me from potentially $40,000+ of poor workmanship and damage that needed to be renovated and repaired and I ended up using his services again on another property. With a building background, Brett is highly skilled and experienced at building inspections and able to identify issues in detail. He gives a very comprehensive service and detailed explanation for even the basic questions I had, taking the time to explain various aspects of the report in layman's terms that provides you an understanding of the potential costs and time to repair, as well as what ultimately matters or not. He is very responsive and accommodating in his services, providing his service at short-notice to meet the deadlines of various stakeholders in the process, and put in an enormous effort to work around my work schedule with a few time changes. He also kindly answered all the questions I had as they came to mind in several follow up calls post inspection. Being a potential first home buyer in the market and without the experience of home ownership, Brett provided me with a lot of peace of mind and reassurance in what is a stressful experience of searching for a property and gave me the knowledge to understand what to look for in a property.read more

I highly recommend Brett from Inspect East. Between February and May 2018 Brett inspected five properties for me before at last I found the right one.I was really keen on buying the second house he inspected and was going to bid on it at auction - until I read Brett’s report. He’d found that despite the house being only five or six years old, both bathrooms were leaking into the ground underneath. Had I not had his report I might have bought the house only to get a nasty surprise down the track. Brett saved me the cost and the stress of replacing two bathrooms for which I’m extremely thankful.Brett was able to do inspections at very short notice. His reports are very detailed and he includes plenty of photos. He also gave me verbal reports over the phone shortly after he’d inspected the properties.Given my recent house hunting experiences I’d never contemplate buying a property without having it inspected. And I’d never contemplate using anyone but Brett to inspect it.read more

Brett provided us with an amazing service responding to our last minute request to inspect a property and got the report back to us on the same day. He gave us a thorough report but more importantly talked through the report with us to ensure we understood and taught us a lot of the nuances of inspections and how to understand the quality of a building. I also called him back later on the same night to ask him more questions. He not only agreed to talk further with us at 8.30pm but had us on the phone for about half an hour discussing the property. He is incredibly trustworthy and personal in his dealings and I can't recommend him enough.read more

We engaged Inspect East to provide a inspection on a 'fixer-upperer' we were looking at and the service and detail provided far exceeded our expectations.The inspection was handled through the vendor by Brett and was completed quickly and thoroughly with an extremely detailed report provided on the same day of the inspection complete with photo evidence. He then went through the report with us that night answering any questions we had and ensuring we understood what was found and what the consequences were.He noted many items in his report which we wouldn't have thought of looking at, even as experienced Project Managers working within construction and refurbs. Brett is knowledgeable and a wealth of information and helped us make an informed decision in regards to the property.I cannot recommend this company highly enough and we will definitely engage them again when looking for inspection services for a purchase.read more

I am very happy that I hired Brett before finalizing my purchase. I had made the contract subject to inspection which turned out to be a wise decision. The friends that I consulted with believed that inspection is not necessary for the property as it was still under builder warranty and only 5 years old. The real state agent believed that it would be ridiculous to have an inspection! Nevertheless, I asked Brett to do a building and pest inspection hoping that he will give the ok to go ahead. Brett did a through inspection and found multiple important issue. Most importantly he realised that rain water was going under the building which can have terrible consequences if left un-remedied. He was also very patient answering all my questions some of which I guess would look silly to him since I am not an expert in building issues.One of my friends who is a civil engineer himself has recently purchased a property. When I showed him Brett's report, he was very impressed and decided to hire Brett to inspect his new home to see if any thing needs to done to prevent future issues at his home. The report is very through with many photos and clear description of the issues.read more

I used Inspect East Building inspections recently for a house that I wanted to purchase. Brett was amazing! He was so helpful, I called him last min and he was able to fit me into his busy schedule and did the inspection on the same day. His report was so easy to follow/understand and he called me straight after the inspection to have a chat about the house. I have been looking for a house for past 1 year and have used a lot of different places for building inspection. I definitely recommend Inspect East Building inspections as they have been by far one of the best AND I want to say THANK YOU Brett for doing an incredible job!read more

InspectEast helped us review a place before we made an offer. Brett was very detailed, providing photos of all issues and points of notes for us. Brett was also very easy work with, and highly responsive to text messages and phone calls. The report was provided to us the night of, and then spoke to us promptly in the AM, providing clear and easy to understand. Specifically Brett picked up both leaking showers, and the water damage which had led to rotting wood in the subfloor, and also the insufficient ventilation underneath the house that had high potential to cause further water damage. Brett picked this up despite the vendor (who was a builder) taking active steps to conceal the issues, hoping to pass the issues off to the next unsuspecting home owner. Thank you Brett and team!read more

Our first experience hiring a professional building inspector, and what can I say, he delivered much more than I could of hoped for. Not only with Inspect East do you get a fast turn around, but it is backed up by a strong professionalism - from the quality structure of his reporting, to the details that they find in their inspections. Always being available to answer any specific questions about the property in terms of its structure, quality, and fittings - their experience in the building industry shines through. You won't get a more honest, and professional service. Do not hesitate to give Brett a call.read more

We could not recommend Brett enough and appreciate how genuine and passionate he is about his work 🙂 Thank you Brett!!!read more

After dealing with Brett for the second time in the last few years, I can reaffirm once again that all the 5 star reviews here are absolutely on point! I simply cannot heap enough praise on this man. From his incredible customer service, to his genuine care and investment in your situation, to his unbelievable attention to detail and comprehensive reports... the list just goes on and on. I had to organise an inspection on 1 days' notice, as I was in the middle of negotiations on a property and was desperate for Brett to come through before I signed anything. Acknowledging the urgency of my situation, he rejigged his calendar, organized the whole thing with the real estate agent and had an 85 page report with photos and easy-to-read comments/analysis in my inbox on the same day!! Have showed the report to my brother (who is in the industry) and he was very impressed. Thank you Brett, so so much.read more

We have been extremely satisfied with services from Brett (Inspect East). Instrumental in our property search, he has always been there on time, dilligent in his inspection and thorough in his report, giving us not only the confidence before making in the plunge but also the satisfaction that there has not been any hidden aspect that has not been looked into. On all the three ocassions that he inspected for us, he was available at a very short notice and was considerate to work his schedule around. Brett saved us from a disaster when he inspected a property for us which had significant water damage and consistent issues with leakage which were beautifully concealed but could not remain hidden from him. If not for his inspection report, we would have signed the papers only to incur thousands of dollars worth repair work which would have still not solved the problem. Given our recent experience as first home buyers, I'll never buy a property without having it inspected, and with no one other than Brett himself. Thank you Brettread more

I highly recommend Inspect East Building Inspections. I instructed Brett White to inspect a newly completed apartment I was purchasing, after having some difficulty finding a building inspector licensed and registered with the Victorian Building Authority - as required by the inspection clause in the Sale of Real Estate Contract. Brett is licensed and registered with the VBA, and gave me his registration number for peace of mind. He understood my worries about the apartment and put my mind at ease with his professionalism and thoroughness. Brett took all of my calls personally, and arranged an inspection and follow-up inspection within days of each call. His attention to detail is exceptional. He identified some major defects in our apartment which could have been financially ruinous if they had gone unnoticed. His report was clear and easy to understand. But even so, Brett called me personally after each inspection to make sure I understood what he had found.I can highly recommend Brett as a professional, careful, and friendly building inspector.read more

In the past few months, Brett completed thorough inspections on two properties that were of serious interest to me. In both instances, he gave a detailed, in depth account of the strengths and weaknesses inside and out. He was clear, took time to explain various situations, provided photos and even revisited a property when the agents/tenants had restricted access to a certain section of the property during the inspection. He saved me from purchasing two properties that had enormous problems that would have been extremely financially costly and stressful to fix. I would highly recommend Brett as a building inspector.read more

We used Inspect East for a property in Bentleigh and were absolutely blown with the quality and professionalism of the service that was provided. Brett was incredibly professional and was able to quickly arrange an inspection and produce a detailed and thorough, but very readable report complete with photos to help show areas of the concerns. Brett was also available to speak with us so we could fully understand what we were getting into. The report showed that there were some clear issues with the place we were intending on buying and there was no way we would have been able to identify these issues without Inspect East's review. We were able to factor that into how much we were prepared to pay. When you look at the cost of the property versus the cost of the inspection, it's money well spent.read more

The report was detailed, thorough and prompt, and Brett kindly took the time to review this with us over the phone and outline the key takeaways (something we found very valuable, given our lack of expertise in this sector!)Brett was very patient with our questions and we will certainly utilise him again and recommend him to anyone seeking a building inspection in the inner east and bayside suburbs of Melbourne.Thanks Brett!!read more

FAQ

There are common questions that businesses and homeowners in Melbourne ask when looking for building inspection services. We answer some of them here.

Fundamentally the inspection process does not differ we still inspect the property with the same procedure covering all areas reporting all defects with the same consistent standards. However the wording in some sections of the reporting process is different to accommodate the sale process.

You can book an InspectEast Inspection by calling us at (03) 8657 0007. You can also submit your request online at the online booking form, see link.
In order to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we require at least 24 hours notification.
Your report will be emailed to you on the same day of the home inspection.
The inspector will also verbally communicate findings to you once you have at a minimum read the major summary section of the report/s (the page is positioned at the front of the report/s immediately after the index so you cannot miss it).
You may request a hard copy of the inspection report at no extra charge.
We accept major credit cards (VISA, MasterCard).
Other acceptable payment methods are bank transfer.
All hard copy requests are accepted via email. Be sure to indicate the address that you would like the hard copy sent.
A typical home inspection of an average single-family home three bedroom and two bathroom, takes approximately 2 hours however this can depend greatly on the condition of the home.
If you wish to be present during your home inspection we completely understand, however we will not accept any distractions during the process as this may lead to missing items during the inspection. We will discuss any questions you may have after the inspection process is completed.
If you have any questions about the report you can give us a call. We will make every effort for you to be comfortable with the report/s on your home.
Yes. An inspection is always recommended before purchasing a home (old or new). Just because the home is new does not mean that everything is ok. Defects not rectified during the building process can cause deterioration in quite a short time span.
