Property Inspections

Fairview Inspections offer a comprehensive Northern Rivers property inspection service. Our services cover everything from pest inspection reports, pre-purchase reports, building inspections, pool inspections as well as mould and asbestos identification. Our inspectors will travel throughout the Northern Rivers region including Ballina, Casino, Lismore and Kyogle.

Pre-purchase Inspections

Our building and pest inspectors conduct thorough examinations of properties throughout the Northern Rivers area. If you are considering purchasing a new property, be sure to call us first.

Pre-purchase Building Inspections

Having a building inspection prior to making an offer for sale is an important part of any real estate transaction. We report on the condition of the building, outlining any defects or areas of concern.

We provide a comprehensive report that details the entire site, including the interior structure, roofing, building exterior and subflooring. These reports allow the purchaser to make a more informed decision on the value of the home. If we uncover the property requires major structural repairs, the report can assist with the negotiation of a better sale price. Alternatively, you may choose not to proceed with the sale due to the cost of the repairs. Our detailed reports include photographic evidence of our inspection findings and are professionally presented.

We can provide you with a free quote on this service; simply give us a call to discuss your needs.

Pre-purchase Pest Inspections

Our inspectors carry out and report on pest activity for pre-purchase buildings. We inspect for timber pest activity, timber pest damage, potential timber pest conditions and other safety concerns that are present in the property. Our inspections can also include the use of thermal imaging to detect heat, moisture spots, movement and defects in the cavity of interior walls.

These comprehensive and professionally presented reports aid clients to arrange for the issues to be corrected, or at least to be aware of the problems prior to final sale of the property.

Swimming Pool Safety Inspections

Fairview Inspections, carry out pool safety inspections throughout the Northern Rivers area. When correct pool safety procedures are followed, they can help save a life. Safety features should be your number one priority when purchasing or if you own a property with a pool.

From the 29th April 2014, if you are selling or leasing a property with a swimming pool, you will be required to have the pool certified by an accredited inspector. Our licensed inspectors will inspect the pool, the surrounds, fencing and gates, landscaping, boundary fencing, windows, screens and security screens to ensure your pool meets the required Australian Standards.

If your pool passes the safety inspection, we will provide you with a detailed report and certificate of compliancy. Should your pool not meet the requirements, our inspectors will make recommendations on the areas of concern. Once these have been rectified, our inspectors will re-inspect your pool for compliancy.

Asbestos Identification

1 in 3 homes in Australia are built with materials containing asbestos. This is a highly toxic mineral substance that causes lung disease when asbestos spores are inhaled. Our inspectors can identify asbestos materials that are present in your home.

Prior to undertaking renovations, it is vital to inspect for the presence of asbestos. Call us today to book an asbestos inspection and receive a report detailing any presence of this potentially deadly mineral. We can also explain the legalities of removal and disposal.

Pest Inspections

Our pest inspectors will complete a visual check for the presence of termites and other damage-causing pests. This inspection will look for timber pest activity, favourable conditions and areas for pests (to avoid future infestations) and timber pest damage.

If you are a homeowner, we recommend an annual termite inspection to safeguard against infestation. Our inspectors provide advice on preventative treatments to help you protect your home.
