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 $.
