Non-Standard inspections

Want to ensure the residential or commercial property you’re considering purchasing is free of asbestos?

Maybe you want to make sure the plumbing is free of tree roots, the solar hot water panels or system is operational or that the electrical wiring or structure is sound?

These are just some of the inspections and problems a Total Inspections pre-purchase electrical, plumbing or building inspection can identify and solve for you.

With residential and commercial properties being bought and sold more often, pre-purchase electrical, asbestos, plumbing and other types of pre-existing building inspections are being used more and more by vendors and potential purchasers.

Also, a Total Inspections pre-purchase solar, plumbing, electrical, structural or other inspection may be conducted on your request, your client’s request, as a recommendation arising from a previous building or pest inspection or a vendor’s request.

Either way, a Total Inspections pre-purchase solar, plumbing inspection, electrical or other inspection provides you with certainty and can be used for:

  • Asbestos identification inspections
  • Water leak inspections and reports
  • Pre-purchase plumbing inspections
  • Solar panelling and system inspections
  • Commercial and residential electrical inspections
  • And identify any structural decay underground or behind wall linings
  • Additionally, a drone inspection may be a great way to inspect high-level wall or roof linings that are inaccessible as well

On the rare occasions when one of our licensed qualified building inspectors finds an issue that may be outside his or her normal field of expertise, don’t worry. We’ll work with you and arrange for a qualified licensed tradesperson experienced in that specific field to inspect and investigate any additional issues found as per Australian building inspection standards and regulations.

These additional trades or inspectors may include but are not limited to:

  • Electrical inspections
  • Asbestos inspectors
  • Solar roof panelling and system inspections
  • Structural engineer
  • Mechanical inspections

  • Also if issues are found and need further investigation such as a destructive investigation, approval will need to be given by the owner of the residential house or property but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
