About Our Pre-Purchase Building & Pest Inspections

Buying a new residence? Need a quality building and pest inspection in Brisbane or South East Queensland? You’ve come to the right place.

At Compass, we’re passionate about providing you with a comprehensive inspection and equally detailed building and pest report — so you can take the next step on your buying or selling journey with confidence.

We understand that we only get one chance to provide you with an accurate result. That’s why we only employ qualified, experienced team members who take great pride in their work. We go above and beyond to ensure that every building and pest inspection we carry out is staffed by two qualified inspectors who look for building defects and pest issues, both inside and outside. And rather than using non-licensed inspectors who operate under the ‘umbrella licence’ of the business, every single one of our inspectors is fully licensed in their own right — leaving you with total peace of mind.

Compass is also a proud member of the Queensland Master Builders Association, and all our inspections exceed Australian Standard 4349.

Our easy-to-understand building and pest inspections include:

  • A full internal and external property inspection (for example, roof, roof cavity, sub-floor areas, outbuildings, fences, and gardens where accessible)
  • Two licensed and insured inspectors visiting the property at the same time
  • Inspections completed with the most advanced tools in the industry, including thermal imaging camera and moisture meters
  • A detailed written report on each inspection with digital photographs

We provide a quality pest inspection and report — every time.

Whether your home is 1 or 100 years old, we’ll take the same care that we always do during inspections. It’s easy to assume that brand new houses won’t have any problems — but at Compass Building and Pest Inspections, our inspectors never assume anything! Instead, they meticulously work their way around your home to provide you with the most accurate result.

Want to join us during your building inspection and pest inspection?

If you’d like to be present during your inspection, that’s no problem! In fact, we actively encourage our clients to be at the property as we carry out our work. This allows you to see exactly how thorough the inspection has been, which gives you further insights into the process and any issues that may arise.
