If you need a pre-purchase house inspection in Melbourne, Geelong or Central Victoria, you have come to the right place.

Are you a first home buyer?
Buying an investment property?
Upgrading or downsizing your home?

Whether you’re a first timer, an investor ready to build a property portfolio, or you’re just wanting a location change, the team at The Home Inspection Hub can take the stress out of making your purchase decision.

A Pre-Purchase house inspection from an independent and reliable Inspector is a worthwhile investment. At The Hub, we have a team of Building Inspectors, accredited Architects and specialist Inspectors who are all highly experienced. Our Inspectors are equipped with an exclusive mobile app, that has been designed to produce a thorough house inspection report, covering the inside and outside of the property.

To know what you’re buying, there are some important elements to consider. Your Inspector will assess these items to make sure you know exactly what you’re paying for. These elements include:


Look for driveway cracking, concrete lifting, clogged gutters, sagging in the ceiling of the garage, carport and water under the house or a wet backyard.


Look for settlement inside the house, doors sticking, squeaky floorboards, rising damp on solid brick homes.


Check for rotten timber stumps, settlement under strip footings and cracking in brickwork.


Check for leaking outside of the shower recess, damaged skirting board, mildew on bathroom walls and ceiling.


Inspect for rotten window frames and sills, water damage to balcony floor frame, pointing or mortar loose/cracked to hips / ridges / valleys.


Inspect for safety switches not installed correctly, smoke alarms not fitted in correct location, low water pressure, water dripping from hot water service.


Examine the area for mould growing underneath the floor and leaks in the roof space.


Look for termites/white ants, and soft, hollow timber in skirting boards, windows and doors.

Depending on the size and condition of the property, a standard inspection will take approximately 1-2 hours to complete.

Your Inspector will be happy to meet clients on site at least 45 minutes after the confirmed inspection time. If you cannot make it on site, your Inspector will verbally take you through the details and your report will be emailed directly to your inbox.
