About Us

Comprehensive Building Inspections has been established for 24+ years, servicing Sydney’s Northern Beaches and the Sydney Metropolitan areas.


Our inspectors go through each room of the property examining the ceilings, walls, floors, windows and doors. They climb into the ceiling cavity and crawl under the floor looking for any damage, irregularities, sub-standard workmanship and damp. They look for cracking in the walls, sagging in the floors and leaks through the roof explaining clearly the seriousness of what they find. The condition of the electric wiring, plumbing, hot water tank and gutters and downpipes are an important part of the report. In the front and back yards they look at the drainage and the condition of fences and paths. All repairs required are itemised and an estimate of the costs noted.


Our building and pre-arranged pest reports are approximately 30+ pages long, contain at least 20 coloured photographs, extremely detailed, do not contain ticks or crosses and are easy to read because they are written in clear non-technical language. The reports have 3 main functions:

  1. If the property is in good condition the buyer can purchase with confidence.
  2. If the property is in poor condition the buyer may abandon the purchase.
  3. If repairs are required, extent of rectification work can be nominated to allow cost estimates to be established, so the buyer can negotiate a lower house price or arrange for the Vendor to correct items as agreed.
  4. We can then email the full report (Photo’s included) to you, your Solicitor or both in pdf format. We are happy to talk with your solicitor if required.
