We encourage you to ask questions during the Inspection. The inspection is for your benefit and this is the time to ask away. We encourage you have a list if it is necessary. You can refer to the standard of Practice to see what is and is not inspected during an inspection.
Every inspection is unique but the average home takes between 2-5 hours depending on factors such as, size, age, outdoor fixtures, polls, outdoor buildings, etc. An approximate time frame is the usual and will be set aside but no inspection is rushed or left unfinished.
The inspection price is as stated for the inspection performed. Infra Red cameras are carried by all inspectors and will be used as they feel fit on regular inspections. If the infra red camera is used on the above inspection there will be no extra charge.
We have three inspectors.
