Luke, the principal property inspector is a Registered Builder with the Building Commission of Victoria (Licence no: DB-U 44801). All our Pre Auction Building Inspections meet the Australian Standard AS4349.1-2007.
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 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 building inspection 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.
Combined Pre Auction Inspections
Our combined detailed pre auction building and pest inspection provides you with complete peace of mind. Most clients choose this option.

What is a Pre Auction Pest Inspection Melbourne?
It is not commonly known that you only need 2mm for common timber pests (such as termites) to gain access to a property. This is all it takes for pests to cause extensive damage. As well, most people don't know that their home insurance is limited in such circumstances.
This is because it is unlikely they will cover the cost of repairing your home if pests were present before purchased at auction. As a result, it is essential that a pre auction pest inspection is undertaken before you buy.
That is why we specialise in providing pre auction pest inspections for all suburbs of Melbourne. When All Checked Out provide pre auction pest inspections our reports are on all types of pests. Types of common pests include termites, borers and fungal decay. This way you are fully informed before you make the decision to buy your property in Melbourne at auction.

The following are the areas that we check when we do our pest inspection. These are the areas where a pest infestation is most likely:

- Check for mould in wet areas
- Check for any leaks
- Use thermal imaging
- Check skirting boards, doors and window frames
- Check inside of roof for signs of pests
- Make sure correct amount of ventilation to avoid moisture
Outside the Home
- Check external timber within 50 metres of home
- Inspect suspicious looking trees and stumps
- Check external buildings for evidence of pests
- Make sure that there is no poor ventilation - especially garden beds against the home
- Check for any eaking and broken plumbing
Sub Floor of the Home
- Check ventilation and moisture levels
- Make sure water is not leaking from the home
- Check for any signs of sagging floors
- Make sure that there is no timber in contact with the soil under the house
Pre Auction Building & Pest Inspection Melbourne
If you want complete peace of mind before you make the decision to buy at auction, we strongly recommend both a building and pest inspection. This is especially true as building defects often lead to pest infestations.
By having both inspections done you get the most comprehensive condition report available. As All Checked Out specialise in providing combined building and pest inspections in Melbourne you are sure that you'll get a report that highlights all the issues the property you are thinking of buying.
