Why Do you Need a Pre Auction Inspection?
Pre auction building inspections are the same as pre purchase building inspections. However, with pre auction inspections you need to get your report completed before auction day.
This is due to the fact that most auction conditions are not usually conditional upon you obtaining a satisfactory building and pest inspection. Once you have made the winning bid it it is too late. This means you may end up with a property that will have a lot of unexpected repair costs. This is especially true as the seller is under no obligation to let you know about any structural defects the property may have.
You are assured, when you engage All Checked Out, that you will receive a strictly independent buildinginspection report. This means you are fully informed about the condition of the property before you decide to bid at auction.
With reports starting from a low $450 (inc GST), it is well worth it for your peace of mind.

What is a Pre Auction Building Inspection?
A pre purchase auction inspection provides a detailed, easy to read report, that tells you about the major faults a home has. This includes any cracking walls, rising damp, leaking roofs and safety hazards. The report will also highlight any unauthorised work, as well as whether the faults can be fixed.
It is recommended by Consumers Affairs Victoria that you consider engaging a qualified building inspector to make sure all faults are found. This includes one where attempts have been made to cover them up!
We provide three types of pre auction inspections:
Pre Auction Building Inspections
We provide a detailed report highlighting any issues with the property. These issues range from structural issues to more minor issues.
We provide a detailed report highlighting any pest infestations. In particular, we make sure that you are aware of any termite issues.

Pre Auction Pest Inspections Melbourne
It is not commonly known that you only need 2mm for common timber pests (such as termites) to gain access to a property and start causing damage. It is also not commonly known that your home insurance is unlikely to cover the cost of repairing your home if you discover after purchase that you are infested with termites.
That is why we specialise in providing pre auction pest inspections for all Melbourne suburbs. When All Checked Out provide pre auction pest inspections our reports are on all types of pests. This includes termites, borers and fungal decay. This way you are sure that you are fully informed before you make the decision to buy your Melbourne property at auction.
Within 24 hours (or even sooner if required) you will receive a detailed report. This report has photos outlining any issues with the property. The following are the areas we inspect when we perform a pest inspection:
- Roof void
- Interior of building
- Exterior of building
- Sub floor area
All pest inspections comply with Australian Standard 4349.3-2010. This means all our inspections identify any evidence of timber pests. This includes termites, as well as other pests such as rodent. We will also report on conditions in the property that could cause an infestation of pests in the future.
Pre Auction Building & Pest Inspections
If you want complete peace of mind before you make the decision to buy your Melbourne property at auction, then we recommend both a building and pest inspection. This is especially true as building defects can lead to pest infestations.
Remember that it only takes 2mm for common timber pests (such as termites) to gain access to a property and start causing damage - damage that is unlikely to be covered by your home insurance if the property was infested by pests prior to purchase at auction.
All Checked Out specialise in providing combined building and pest inspections in Melbourne - so you can be sure that you will get a report that highlights all the issues the property you are thinking of buying at auction.
