How will a Plumbing Pre Purchase Inspection benefit me?


If you are preparing to purchase a new home or business, or sell a property, ensure that the plumbing meets all of your expectations.

A comprehensive property inspection is about much more than just ticking the boxes, it extends to an invaluable peace of mind that the property is free from serious defects.



The majority of  pre purchase building inspections available do not include in-depth checks on plumbing.

Plumbing problems like leaking showers or broken and leaking drainage can be some of the most costly repairs home owners can encounter, can you afford to take that risk? Don't waste your money on inspections that have a fine print disclaimer that all plumbing should be assessed by a licensed plumber.


We provide you with a comprehensive pre purchase plumbing property inspection which includes a detailed report outlining the condition of all aspects of the properties plumbing and related fixtures.


We are a member of the Master Builders and Master Plumbers Association and our pre purchase inspections are carried out by  qualified plumbing inspection professionals and use the latest technology to identify problems that are not easily visible and can lead to expensive repair bills if left undetected.


There are many hidden problems that will surface after purchasing a new home or investment property and Plumbing problems is certainly high on that list.

With a plumbing inspection you know that a licensed plumber has thoroughly inspected the property and has given you a comprehensive report that outlines all plumbing and drainage conditions which are not covered in a pre purchase building inspection.

If you're considering purchasing a new property and we identify  plumbing defects in our inspection, our comprehensive report will provide you with a valuable tool to negotiate a resolution or purchase price reduction with the vendor.

Or maybe you are considering selling?  Our property assessment will give you a competitive edge in the market, providing prospective buyers with peace of mind regarding the sound condition of your property and all its plumbing.
