Landmark’s new home building inspections are a valuable tool to discover any problems with your build at key milestones, providing the opportunity to remedy the issues before the next stage commences. Identifying any defects as early as possible can result in the avoidance of not only the additional costs of making-good later, but also major delays to your project.

Peace of Mind Knowing Your Investment Isn’t a Gamble!

As an investor, you’re possibly spending a lot of money on building a new home, renovations, or any other project for that matter, which means you need to be confident that the work is done right. While it is impractical to be present at the site 24/7, the professionals at Landmark Inspections ensure that your best interests are safeguarded. Our new home building inspections help to identify potential issues early on or at any later stage so that they can be remedied before construction progresses to the next stage. If anything, this stage-wise approach saves you an immense amount of time and even money moving forward since even minor defects can often become a major problem later on.

FAQs

What Happens If The Home Fails An Inspection?

Our inspections aren't about failing or passing. The objective is to help keep building owners or project owners informed about key aspects of the project, including the suspicion or evidence of defects. If measures committed to by the contractor aren't being met, they are highlighted in the report, which gives you the opportunity to meet with the contractor to get the issue fixed before moving forward.

What Do New Home Inspections Cost?

The cost of a new home inspection varies based on the project's scope, size, and type. However, we can provide an estimate based on the information you give us about the project.

Do You Ensure The Home is Compliant With Local Regulations And Building Standards?

The report will outline if there are local regulations and compliance issues. For instance, if the structure does not have the required mandated fire safety implementations required by the city of Melbourne.
