"So far is a good experience using APBI. They gave prompt reply to the enquiries, and they done the inspection and reports in timely manner. The inspector is easy to be contacted. They also gave a very good price!"
"I needed an urgent Building Inspection for the purchase that I made. I contacted APBI team and explained my circumstances, they organized an inspection even earlier than what they first promised me and the report was ready and sent to me straight away."
"I wouldn't engage APBI for any future projects. I have been misled by the positive reviews on Google. It probably depends on the Inspector allocated to your property. I engaged APBI for all 4 stages of my build. My inspector has never picked any issue, not even a minor one for the entire build. 2 days moving into my new house, I faced issues with water blockages in the whole house including the toilets. That too happened on a long weekend!! 3 days later the builder sent plumbers and turns out the sewerage pipe that was supposed to be above ground in the front yard is buried underground. I encountered additional charges of living in a hotel for 3 days. I agree that builders make mistakes and that is the only reason we engage 3rd party inspectors. When I questioned APBI how they missed this; their response was they only visually inspect what is visible to them. The response baffled me. If only I had known this and I would have never engaged them. For an inspector who couldn't even point out a missing sewer pipe, I seriously question their capabilities and qualification to perform inspections."
"Very detailed and thorough report. Thank you for your business, much appreciated."
"I had a building inspection completed by APBI in February 2020. I had to reschedule at the last minute and the team were very understanding and easy to communicate with. The inspector showed up on time and was very respectful. He completed a very detailed report and was available for a follow up phone conversation which was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this service."
"Decent value, fast turn around Pre-Auction inspection. Good communication with real estate agents. Perhaps not as much detail in the "hard to reach" areas of the house as I would like, e.g. stumps under house. Also I think they missed some water damage in the garage ceiling, but nothing major."
"We would highly recommend APBI as they were prompt and extremely helpful in providing feedback and guidance even during the actual inspection."
"This company was easy to speak to and organise an appointment and everything was complete quickly would definitely use them again and recommend them"
"Good experience, professional and through report. Dealt with company a couple of times and very easy to deal with. Have referred clients to them for reports as needed."
"I had a few last minute properties to inspect prior to purchasing our first home. Not only did the team accommodate us quickly the report was complete also within a short time frame. The inspection looked at things we didn't even consider and we actually did not buy a property based on structural issue that could not be seen by everyday people like us. Thanks for saving us a ton!"
"As first home buyers, its nerve racking to go through you first build without any experience or know how. Im really happy I've found APBI also through recommendation of a previous customer. David the representative was really helpful even after the inspection for some follow up query. Absolutely recommend everyone to get your own private inspector when building, this is for your own peace of mind. Thank you APBI"
"I used ABPI for inspection for building and termite, I received reports for both on time and staff were prompt to book time and cater my needs. I contacted both inspectors later one to follow up and ask question and they were both professional and helpful. I recommend APBI for next inspection you may have."
"We hired Australian property and building inspections prior to attending an auction of a house that needed major renovations. Australian property and building inspections were so helpful from the minute I called to sending a staff member out within a couple of days. The report was promptly sent to my email a day after the inspection and was extremely thorough breaking down each part of the house which really put my mind at ease when attending the auction. Would not hesitate to contact for my next building inspection as very professional and efficient service Thankyou!"
"I had a pest and building inspection with APBI. Extremely happy with their service. Report was quite through and we'll presented. Recently referred them to my friend. Which went great again. Highly recommended."
"I believe you get what you pay for. This company provided a thorough inspection and we were able to go ahead with the property purchase. Very reassuring to have such a good inspection service."
"Our experience was fabulous with the Company.they were quick with the report and it was very detailed.Also they set a direct contact with the agent to schedule an inspection...just the kind of experience that we hoped for."
"Great company to deal with. Good communication."
"The inspection and subsequent report provided less information and professional evaluation than could be assessed by yourself. It overlooked key issues that we identified and instilled no confidence in the skills or professionalism of the company. When presenting these issues to the company, they were unhelpful and dismissive of my complaints. There are better inspectors out there, so please save yourself time and money and avoid this company at all costs."
"Easy to deal with. Very prompt and professional. Highly recommended."
"Building inspection report documented issues I had already identified without providing reason for the defects. In other words I could have written the report myself without paying the $500+ price tag. Provided the report to my house builder who basically laughed in my face. Beware what you ask and pay for, as this was just a waste of money."
"I need a pre-purchase building and pest inspection report done urgently and APBI handled the process amazingly. The report was very detailed and professional. Great value. Will definitely use them again."
"I reached out to Greg and he was very helpful. The response time was quick and Greg kept it simple. Highly recommended!"
"Easy, affordable and fast."
"We recently hired this companies service to inspect a property we were interested in. The property inspection and report were taken out very professionally and in great detail. We were very happy with the service they provided, will definitely be using this same company for any future inspections."
"This guys are the worst! They charged $418 for pre slab inspection. They never showed up, they still generated a report saying it was done and all was fine. WRONG!! plumbing was forgotten, slab wasn't done correctly and they won't take responsibility or refund my money. Be very careful.. Report saying was done at 3pm when I stated no one showed now they saying 1:45 pm I was told he was running late 3:15pm that day too. Nothing makes sense.. I'm left with so much problems now.. Please stay away and save your money. Don't pay in advance as well.."
"APBI team has been absolute fantastic for new build inspection. I took their service for 4 stage inspection for our new build. The have a responsive team over phone and email, they are very flexible with the scheduling. Inspector capture every minute details and record them in the report. Very prompt in sending the reports and available to answer any questions we had. We loved the experience, buying a new home is a daunting task, but having APBI on our side helped us be relaxed w.r.t. quality of the build. They are very professional and experts in what they do. I highly recommend APBI. Thanks again team!"
"It was very good experience"
"Great service and easy to read detailed report. Will use again."
"Very flexible service, allowed me to change the booking times several times (due to issues with accessing keys from the agent) at no added cost and offered a reliable and value for money service generating a detailed report. They were prompt with email reviews and this allowed me to make bookings whilst overseas. Would use again!"
"Very easy to communicate with. The building inspector met the estate agent and we received a prompt report. Would prefer to meet them in person next time around to get some more in-depth answers on some areas which where inaccessible, but we didn't contact the agent to ask."
"Cancelled my building and pest inspection without notifying me. I only found out by calling them when they didn't show up. Customer service was not helpful at all and told me it had been cancelled two days prior"
"Great experience, thorough report. Can't ask for much more!"
"Easy to book in and the inspector showed up on time. He was helpful and I asked a few questions during the inspection which were answered then and there. Report was fairly thorough and caught the major issues but perhaps focused a bit too much on relatively minor issues for my liking (plaster cracks, broken floor vents, etc) while not checking more significant areas (eg. heating/cooling). Would recommend and hire again."
"We recently had a building and pest inspection carried out by APBI. Our inspector was very happy to focus his time and efforts on our areas of concern and to leave aside portions of a standard inspection that were unnecessary for us (as owner occupiers), effectively customising the inspection to meet our requirements. His advice on the day and within the final report were very helpful. Highly recommended."
"The report and inspection carried out was very generic in nature and definitely not worth the fee they charge."
"Glad to do business with. Quick response, prompt action"
"I have dealt with this company a couple times now and they have been very good, great service, value and have a quick turn-around with their reports. Highly recommended."
"I have contacted them for building inspection of my investment property. Since I have booked until completion,they were absolutely providing excellent service. Their reports were very good and I have contacted the inspector for a couple of questions. He has explained me very clearly which was much appreciated. I would love to use them for future for their great service and prompt timely response. Great value for money....."
"Australian Property & Building Inspections very responsive and easy to work with. They organised everything with the Real Estate Agents for Building inspections so we did not have to worry about anything. Only thing was that the Building inspection was not as detailed as expected but it was easy to understand and did the job well. Unbeatable prices as well."
"Great service and inspection and detailed report provided. I am very happy with the service and I will use again in the future. Thanks for all your assistance. I highly recommend this business"
"The building inspection and report were great. However, the building inspector used the toilet then tried to flush paper towel, resulting in a blocked and overflowing toilet... APBI were not helpful with resolving this matter, stating that they couldn't get in contact with the builder then failing to return my calls."
"Excellent and fast service provided by Chantelle and her team. I am very happy with the service and I will use this company again in the future. Thanks for all your assistance. I highly recommend this business."
"I had a very good experience with APBI, they were prompt with the booking, the report was easy to read and covered off exactly what we expected and allowed us to make a decision on whether to bid for the house. I will use them next time we require an inspection."
"It was our first building and pest inspection so we didn't really know where to go or what to expect! APBI was super easy and efficient. Received our report quickly and even called Ray - the inspector the next day who was lovely enough to answer some of our questions and clarify on any concerns we had. Would highly recommend!"
"I've been very happy with the service with APBI so far for our first home building inspection. I am impressed with their customer service, prompt response, integrity in delivery the service, follow up question I had and on time delivery of inspection report within 24 hour. Would highly recommend the service."
"I needed help quickly and the team sent Ray out to help me - he was on time and knew what to look for. Gave me great peace of mind and appointment was set up quickly and professionally. Would recommend for anyone who needs knowledge and experience to get their inspection done right."
"The building inspection I purchased from APBI was completed in a professional manner and within the given time frame. I contacted the building inspector Greg via email for a clarification and he responded very quickly. Overall I was happy with the service."
"I am very impressed with the report APBI has shared..Its very detailed and did help me to point out couple of things to the vendor which i couldn't notice myself even after inspecting the property 3-4 times :).

ABPI were fantastic, very responsive, they organised the inspection between themselves and the real estate agents and did the job with no other requirements from me. The report itself for very detailed and allowed me to cost all the parts that need to be fixed prior to auction. Will be going with them again. Beth"

"The team at Australian Property and Building Inspections were fantastic. From my first phone call to them I felt at ease. A thorough inspection was completed and an informative report given, for a reasonable price. One of the Realestate agents also said to me just recently that the gentleman whom attended the property to complete the inspection was lovely. So that?s also good to hear. Really happy with the whole process, would highly recommend having an inspection done, great peace of mind. Thank you to the team at Australian Property and Building Inspections, great work."

I would use them again for my next build & highly recommend them."

He pointed out many areas around the exterior and garage that need attention giving me a great to do list for once I move in. I am extremely satisfied with the report and would recommend APBI to anyone wanting to purchase a home with confidence that they know what they are buying."
"I used Australian Property & Building Inspections Melbourne services after extensive online search and found their service to be professional, friendly and convenient. There seem to be lot of property inspection companies out theres who charges exorbitant prices. I found their services reasonably price yet service that had been carried out was thorough and second to none. The inspector who did the inspection arrived on time and spent lot of time going through every detail and made it easier for me a make relatively large financial decision based on his report and my own judgement. One factor to keep in mind no matter which inspector carries out the inspection no company seem to take the liability on any defects not picked up during their inspection therefore your own due diligence is a must."
"I am very satisfied withe the APBI. They have done excellent task for me. Just within a 24 hours of booking they completed the inspection. Greg, the inspector, explained me all bits and pieces of the report and helped to take my decision about the property. I surely recommend them."

Overall report was very detailed and readily helped us to go ahead with our decision. Quite happy with the service."

"We?ve used this team twice for house inspections and we bought the second house that they inspected. Very thorough and comprehensive, right down to comments on caulking and grout to maintain waterproofing, photos were also very helpful."
"Tony was great! with his professional eye for detail, we were informed that the roof had had water damage to the beams and also there was evidence of termites in the surrounding garden beds. Without this advise we would have gone ahead and brought the property."
"Dave was an exceptionally outstanding inspector who conducted our pre- purchase inspection. He was honest and gave us his professional opinion on the day. We are so glad we went with such a remarkable company who assisted us in purchasing our first home. I was nervous phoning up, unsure of what to do however Jade the lovely consultant was a great help and even arranged booking times with the real estate agent. The report was given to us the next day, it was extremely easy to read and I even passed it on to our broker who said she will be using this company in the future - as Dave left a great impression and his report was thorough and simple to understand compared to other companies. Definitely will be recommending to our friends and family!"
"This inspection was worth every cent! We'd found a place we really loved and were prepared to bid hard for it at the auction the coming Saturday. It was last minute, but on the Wednesday I called APBI and they were able to do the inspection the following day with a written report submitted to me the on Friday morning. Michael was great. He called me as soon as he'd done the inspection and told me the house had major structural issues and a major termite and borer infestation! His call alone was enough to make us pull out but the written report was great. Super thorough, full of photos and good explanations of every issue. I also called him the next day to chat a bit more. He was happy to answer all my questions and was very knowledgeable. His report saved us from buying a total lemon! I highly recommend theses guys and we'll be using them again when we find another place we like."

"Great service. Quick response and inspection timing, especially considering how fast we needed it done! Very thorough report as well. Highly recommend."

"Great efficient service with a detailed report that helped us realise that the property had minor flaws we would not have picked up. Would happily use them again."
"My husband and I recently engaged in the services of the Australian Property & Building Inspections Melbourne. I was so pleasantly surprised to receive the report within hours of the scheduled inspection. The report was 48pages long. First though was OMG the house we are looking to buy is falling to bits. How wrong I was. The report was so easy to read with accompanying pictures next to each item. I particularly liked that next to the noted issue the inspector noted what trade would be required to fix the issue. I have already recommend Australian Property & Building Inspections Melbourne to family and friends and will continue to do so."
"We have used APBI for two inspections now (June 2019 and July 2019). They have been great both times; prompt, clear, accurate and timely. They offer what they say they offer and have liaised perfectly with us and the real estate agents on both times. Would recommend as a easy and quick building inspection company."
"Easy to deal with, quick response time and thorough report"
"Received a detailed report about the building which helped me learn a lot about the building condition. I was present at the time of building inspection, they checked it very thoroughly. Could not be happier with the service from APBI."

"Experienced and knowledgeable inspector. Communication with the office is easy and prompt. Report is detailed. Getting the house inspected with APBI helped me heaps and saved me heaps."

"I needed an urgent inspection on a property that I was purchasing, with specific instructions on which areas of the property I needed checked by a qualified builder, and they were able to book and complete the inspection in the short time-frame that I needed. I received a very comprehensive report from Greg, who gave me detailed information and advice on what areas in the house needed repair/maintenance both now and in the near future, including the foundations and water drainage since the property was on a sloping block. The team at APBI were very easy to deal with and responded to emails and phone calls pretty quickly. The whole experience was really easy and straight-forward, and the cost was very reasonable. Would definitely recommend these guys to anyone needing a building/property inspection."
"Fast service, detailed report provided for records which was easy to read and understand. Great customer service, friendly and helpful staff. If I would need building and pest control inspection service again, I will be surely coming back to apbi."

"Super convenient. Very easy to book and appointment and pay. They arrange a meeting with the real estate agent and organize the inspection without my intervention. The final report is detailed and lucidly explained. Would definitely recommend them.."
"This was our first home and we wanted to be very sure whether we are making the right decision. Inspector was very punctual, friendly and did the whole house inspection meticulously. He was very patient to answer all our queries and suggested ways to keep house in a better condition and avoid damages. The details provided in the inspection report was too good and every nook and corner of the house was covered. APBI helped us make the right buying decision. Would definitely refer it to all first home buyers."
"Prompt service and the report was available in one day. Although the house did not pass the inspection but the service was good. i am planning to use the service again in the future."
"I liked the report provided by APBI, the inspector was professional and went through all details and answered my questions clearly. I do recommend them to everyone going to buy a new house."

"APBI were prompt with their correspondence; their report was thorough and professional. Overall quality of work is outstanding."
"Truly professional and worth every penny."
"Our inspector found defects which was hard for us to find out and which we would have definitely missed out.But few common things, like spikes of carpet,scratches on wardrobe etc we only got to his notice which we felt alright as anyone can find these faults but structure defects which he found was critical."
"APBI provided a comprehensive pest & building inspection with quick turnaround and the booking process was easy. My only criticism is that their opening hours here state they are open on weekend, but when I tried to get in contact on Saturday and Sunday via phone/text/email, I only recieved a response on Monday morning. Otherwise great service."
"Most of my experience was good. Inspection staff is very well experienced and highly professional. Only thing which I want to add is to add more packages different phases. Currently, you are having only 1 cost package for all 4 stages. No other comments. Keep up good work."

"It's been great experience with APBI...you guys are champs..."
"Great service Excellent communication throughout Inspector was excellent and was very helpful when I called with questions from the survey and was clearly really thorough. Current owners of the home we were buying remarked how long the inspector was on site for and how thorough he was. Highly recommended"
"I signed a contract for a property over the Easter period and conditioned the property to a building and pest inspection. With only 7 days (technically 4 minus the public holidays) to arrange the inspection it was pretty stressful. I picked APBI because of all the positive reviews and after seeing a sample of the report which is clear and details exactly what they will check for each area of the property. In addition the quote was provided upfront on the website and I know exactly what I will get and how much I will pay which is a very reasonable price compared to all the other quotes that I got. When I made my booking, they were available on the same day and the staff on the phone grab the details, the rest, APBI took care of and arranged with the agent. After inspection my inspector happily provided information and recommendations to me when I called twice. The advice was helpful and helped me to negotiate a concession for the price for repairs. The only feedback I have is that ABPI is not bookable on the weekend and public holidays so might not help if you have a tight deadline. Also I wasn't notified that the inspection was completed therefore I had to follow up to confrm. Other than that great company and people to deal with."
"Easy to book inspection and the price was competitive."
"Highly recommend APBI, they?re professional and obliging."

Highlighted absolutely everything that I was aware of and all the things I wasn't aware of. Would highly recommend APBI to anyone looking for an urgent and/or comprehensive building and pest inspection."
"We were very happy with the inspection by APBI. They were thorough and highlighted the major issues with the property we were looking to purchase. Subsequently we didn't purchase due to their great work in finding a leaky roof amongst other things. Would highly recommend!!"
"Highly recommend APBI. I personally have chosen them for all the stages of my new home inspections. The report get to me on the same day and its thorough.. even my builder loves to see what are the things they have missed so overall a great experience. I have already recommended them to my friend who is also choosing their services. Thanks"
"Overall great experience and would highly recommend. Shweta was very helpful in booking the building and pest inspection we needed within a few days of requesting it. The inspector assigned to our property turned the report around quickly and even took the time to clarifiy questions we had and was friendly. Very smooth process."
"I have contacted many Builders but due to short notice they could not come and do the inspection. But APBI - David Roth delivers and exceeded my expectations. I booked online and within the day I received the booking confirmation. APBI report detailed all defected things that needs to be done before the settlement. Photos are clear and explained why it's needed to be fix under Australian Guidance and Tolerance. if you build a house I advise you use them- it will your time and heaps of money. Since it is the Final payment, it is important you bring in someone who are knowledgeable and experience in this field. I would use them again in the future."
"Very efficient. Quick to reply and book in the inspection. Would definitely recommend to friends and family."

"It was very easy to arrange a house and pest inspection through APBI with one phone call / email. They liaised directly with Real-estate agent and completed the inspection promptly and issued the report the next day. The report was very comprehensive and easy to interpret. They gave very objective comments as well as an overall slightly more subjective comment which was re-assuring to know that the house presented well. Booking, payment and receiving the report were all super easy to complete and pricing was well less than several other companies i got quotes from. Overall, very satisfied and happy to recommend to others purchasing a property."
