More information about our Sydney building and pest inspection service
Before purchasing a Sydney property, many prospective buyers will organise a pre-purchase building and pest inspection. This ensures that the building isn’t affected by any significant issues like termites, rising damp or structural problems. If problems are found, this gives buyers more leverage to negotiate on price or walk away from the deal altogether.
If you’re on the verge of purchasing a Sydney property, it’s time to contact Sidepost. Our experienced inspectors will leave no stone unturned when examining your potential new home. When conducting our inspection, issues we typically focus on include roof damage, pissues, plumbing issues, wood rot, termites and mould. These are considered major deal breakers for many buyers, so it’s essential to address them asap.
Quick turnarounds for your pre purchase building report
Property purchases aren’t always straightforward, and sometimes unexpected issues can arise at the last minute. For example, if multiple buyers are interested in your dream property, you might need your report ASAP to help seal the deal. That’s why we offer a same day service for our Sydney customers, so you can get the information when you need it most.
In addition to fast turnaround times, we also deliver high-quality building and pest inspection Sydney reports that are simple to understand. Our reports for building inspections include pictures and descriptions of potential issues, making it easy for you to make the right decision.
Trusted Sydney building inspectors
Our team of building inspectors are experienced and qualified, having to go through various courses and exams to become competent professionals. During their pre-purchase building inspections, they will also utilise top-of-the-line equipment like thermal imaging to detect moisture and an infrared (IR) Thermometer to check air leakage and insufficient insulation.
All in all, we have every sensor available to provide you with the most thorough and accurate building inspection report.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a building and pest inspection?
A: A building and pest inspection assesses a property to check for structural damage and infestation signs. A licensed inspector usually performs one before a property is purchased. If no defects are detected, the property should be clear to proceed with the sale without further delay.
Q: How long does a building and pest inspection report take?
A: Most building and pest inspections take 90 minutes to 2 hours to complete. The length of time it takes for our building and pest inspector to assess the property will depend on its size and condition. Buildings with more accessible areas, or those in need of several repairs, will take longer to inspect.
Q: Can I be there for the inspection?
A: Yes, clients are more than welcome to be present during their building inspections and pest inspections. However, we ask that you refrain from requesting the inspector any questions during the inspection, as this can interfere with their work. If you have any questions, please ask them after the review has been completed.
Q: What equipment do your inspectors use?
A: All of Sidepost's inspectors are fully equipped with the latest inspection technology, including thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, and more. They'll also carry ladders, torches, and other necessary equipment to conduct a thorough property inspection.
Q: Are your inspectors licensed?
A: Yes, all of our inspectors under the Sidepost company are licensed and qualified to carry out building and pest inspections. They're also highly experienced, having worked in the construction industry for at least 5 years.
Q: Can I reschedule a pest inspection booking online?
A: Absolutely! If you need to reschedule your inspection, you can log into your Sidepost account and do so from there. You can also cancel your inspection, but we advise you to do so at least 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged.
Q: What does a building and pest inspection cover?
A: All building inspectors will cover the structural integrity of the property, as well as any potential issues with its plumbing, electrical, flooring, and roofing. A pest inspection will check for signs of infestation by common.
