Compliance with Regulations

The VBA is the regulatory body responsible for overseeing the building and plumbing industries in Victoria, Australia. Engaging a professional with a domestic builder unlimited license ensures that your property inspection is conducted in compliance with all relevant regulations and standards. This is crucial for both your safety and the long-term integrity of the property.

Thorough Examination of Structural Elements

Domestic builder unlimited license holders are trained to assess and analyse the structural integrity of a property. They can identify potential issues with the foundation, walls, roof, and other critical structural components. This thorough examination is essential for uncovering hidden defects that may not be visible to the untrained eye.

Understanding of Building Materials and Techniques

A licensed domestic builder possesses in-depth knowledge of various building materials and construction techniques. This allows them to identify any issues related to the quality of materials used or the construction methods employed. Such insights are invaluable when assessing the overall condition and durability of a property.

Risk Mitigation

Engaging a registered VBA practitioner with a domestic builder unlimited license helps mitigate risks associated with property transactions. By uncovering potential issues during the inspection, you can negotiate repairs or price adjustments before finalizing the deal, saving you from unexpected costs down the line.

Professional Code of Conduct


VBA-registered practitioners are bound by a strict code of conduct, ensuring a high level of professionalism and ethical behavior. This commitment to professional standards adds credibility to their findings and recommendations during the property inspection process.

Access to Specialised Knowledge


A domestic builder with an unlimited license has specialized knowledge in residential construction. This expertise is especially valuable when inspecting homes, as it allows for a more nuanced understanding of the unique challenges and considerations associated with residential properties.

In conclusion, choosing a registered Victorian Building Authority practitioner with a domestic builder unlimited license for your property inspection is a decision that can significantly impact the outcome of your real estate transaction. The combination of expertise, regulatory compliance, and a commitment to professional conduct makes these professionals the ideal choice for a thorough and reliable property inspection.

Adam was recommended to me, and he was very thorough in the Building and Pest Inspection. Booked in easily and quickly, and received the report by the end of that week. He picked up on all issues with the house with detailed photos and images. Would definitely recommend!

We called Adam to get a quote and he managed to book in building and pest inspection within 1 day. We got the report within 3-4 hours after inspection. Adam was really thorough, and his report was comprehensive. There are pictures for every defect was found which makes it super easy for us to understand the problems for future repairs and maintenance. I emailed and asked him a few questions about the report at 7pm and he called immediately to explain to me in details. Excellent works, I Highly recommend Adam.

Adam has always made himself available at short notice, providing a very detailed report with photo evidence to make it easier to understand. His service has provided me with confidence throughout the build that the workmanship and compliance to building regulations were being scrutinised and itemised if found to be not up to standard. His services have been like having a protection policy in place, allowing me to enjoy the build without worrying about the building process, something I have very little knowledge of.
