We used South West for the peace of mind package of inspections on our knockdown rebuild. The reports have all been done in a timely manner and are very detailed and helpful. Whilst there were not any major issues found during our build, and a few moderate and minor ones, I am so glad they were picked up so the builder could fix them before it was too late to do so. I have also been impressed by the little things found that we just could never know. If I was ever to build again I would hire South West straight away.

Fantastic service. Easy to book, inspection all arranged via my agent and the confirmed with the vendors, before I even reached out to confirm it. I had my in-depth report by the end of the day the inspection took place. Photos, descriptions, even small chips, paint defects and everything in-between. Great work, fast turn around and quick to respond to all emails.

Very quick turnaround time with a very detailed report. I was blown away by Mark's professionalism and approachability. When he called to talk to me about the report, he was very accommodating regarding any questions that I had.

I used South West inspections for all stages of a new house build. Happy with the ease of booking, where they directory coordinated with the site supervisor to arrange the inspection time.The PCI inspection was done by Mark Panetta and he was very thorough finding a number of issues. Even the site supervisor was impressed.

We got the inspection performed for "Pre-Lining Inspection" stage of our new house construction. Kurt did an outstanding job in performing the review and capturing the details! The inspection report is very exhaustive with good quality pictures. The pictures of the roof were also captured brilliantly! The report gives us great confidence on the build quality. We would be using South West Property Inspection for other build stage inspections too. We would also be recommending SWPI service to others!

Thanks to Melanie for working so hard to schedule us in to their busy week. Thanks to all the inspectors who came to the place over the course of our build, Michael, Kurt and Mark. They were always polite and helpful when I needed clarification on things outlined in the reports.

We needed a building report to supply to both our insurance company and our new builder as our original builder has unfortunately gone into liquidation. I called several companies and was told they were either unable to meet our requirements or would charge over 2K. Thankfully I found South West Property Inspections. Melanie and Micheal went out of their way to accommodate us and reassured me they could facilitate our requirements. They arranged an early morning inspection within 24 hours and spent several hours accessing our property. Micheal was thorough and took time to explain all the defects and outstanding work. His knowledge and obvious passion for what he does is outstanding. A thorough report was sent via e mail that afternoon. I am so impressed with the service, the detailed report, the fair price and the professional approach. South West Property Inspections have alleviated so much stress and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

2 inspections done so far on my current build and I am very happy with the results.Slab and Frame inspections were performed by Damian and Kurt respectively with reports emailed to me on the same day.From initiation to communications (Melanie) you can't go wrong with SWPI. I have been very impressed with their reports and transparency. I literally did not have to lift a finger as SWPI liaised directly with my Site Supervisor to organise everything for me. I look forward to engaging with them again to inspect the remaining phases of the build (Piece of Mind option).10/10 I will absolutely recommend!Thank you SWPI!

All I can say is...Wow!From the moment I enquired with South West Property Inspections the service was second to none.I spoke with Karen and Melanie on separate occasions and they both answered all of my questions and you could really tell they cared about what was going on and what we were concerned about with our property inspection.We had Damian out to our property today to conduct the building and pest inspection, he arrived on time and was up to date with the information The girls had previously noted on our file and fully aware of what we were concerned about.Damian went above and beyond and took the time to listen ,explain and also gave solid and sound advice whilst carrying out the inspection.The report - delivered to my inbox on the same day! - was very detailed and has given us a clear and actionable list of things that need attending to, I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of our property.You cannot put a price on piece of mind.Highly, highly recommend.Thank you, Team!Elise and Grant

We hired Southwest properties to inspect all our build stages. We found them professional, helpful, punctual and extremely competent in their work. From Admin process to inspection reports, everything was smooth, thorough and on time. The turnaround time for report after inspection was only few hours and reports were always thorough. I contacted them multiple times over the phone as well to discuss the reports and every single time, my call and questions were answered. Highly recommend them.

It was smooth experience from booking to the actual inspection. They are responsive. They have provided a very thorough inspection report for the Practical Completion Inspection.

South West Property Inspections are the real deal. Professional, punctual and a pleasure to deal with. They first crossed my path 12 months ago when their inspector turned up to do a building inspection on my house for a potential buyer. I was so impressed with their work I engaged them to inspect a house I am now building.Melanie squeezed us into a fully booked schedule on extremely short notice, (greatly appreciated Melanie, thank you) so we could then move forward with our build. The report was very detailed and the inspector found a few minor problems, that we would have overlooked. I will be using this company again on my build and recommending them to any friends who need a property inspected. Great work South West Property Inspections. Thank you.

We are very happy with the service we received from South West Property Inspections. Michael was our inspector and he was fantastic. He was thorough and was able to explain the reasons we were having problems with our gutters and our flooring. He clearly explained what we would need to do to fix the issues. We have no hesitations in recommending this company.
Debbie D.

We engaged southwest inspections after receiving a lot of feedback from friends and I would say they have only exceeded our expectations. During our pre-slab inspection, Our SS said it was difficult to provide a fixed slab pour date due to unpredicted weather and then we only had left a day between formwork completion and slab pour. With just less than a day notice about this and all inspectors busy with planned inspections, Melanie from Southwest moved mountains to make things work for us. She is absolutely fantastic and get work done in best possible way and best possible outcome for clients. We were also lucky to have Michael as our inspector who did a through inspector of our pre-slab form work and noted few things which SS corrected in the morning or slab pour. He had to drive 3 additional hours for the round trip just to do our inspection intake, which we highly appreciate. It is always good to have an expert's eye over things and I can't recommend enough how important it is to have third party inspector and southwest for your property.

As a lot of people know, purchasing a new property can be very stressful. There are so many things that need to be done, legals, inspections, removals etc.Engaging the team at South West Property Inspections was one of the best choices we made with the purchase of our new home.Very responsive, professional and were able to meet our needs. This helped take some of the stress out of the process.We approached the team on the Friday, from there, they had arranged time with the Vendors of the new property and by the Monday night, we had our report.I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.Thank you very much for all of your help in getting this sorted.

I first engaged South West Property Inspections early in 2021 where they completed multiple inspections over different stages of my building journey. The entire team from Melanie in the office to Damien and Michael who carried out my inspections were fantastic. The reports were always received on the same day the inspection was carried out and were easy to read, stated what the defect was along with photos and relevant building codes where applicable clearly stipulating any breaches identified.This next sentence is a positive reflection on South West Property Inspections despite the initial wording. However, unfortunately South West Property Inspections easily earned their worth by identifying defects and issues well over the price of their services. On that basis and what was outlined above, I'd have no qualms recommending South West Property Inspections to friends and family in the future and if the need arose I'll be sure to engage them again.

I would totally recommending South West to our friends and family, the service is amazing. Both the admin and inspector are very responsive and professional. Money worth spent especially as a first home buyer with no prior knowledge about building a house, using South West has given us piece of mind knowing we have an expert looking after our build.

After many years of grinding away we have been able to afford to build our dream home, being probably the most costly purchase one makes in their life it was only right we have our build inspected by a independent inspector. The team i have dealt with have been great and the reports have been worth every dollar spent. Looking forward to seeing this house come to life :) Thank you ( Mel, Karen, Damian & Michael )RegardsBima & Nadia

We have used South West Property Inspections for both our pre-lining and PCI inspections. Both reports have provided us with large amounts of detail of what needs to be fixed up prior to us moving in or progressing with the build. Each time we have dealt with them they have been professional and it has been amazing value for money having them involved. Thankyou so much South West Property Inspections!

First Time Builder jitters are real.So, having a pair of trained and experienced eyes to go over the quality of our build was a top priority.I locked in Southwest Property Inspections after scouring over multitude of building forums and reading so many positive reviews for them.We’ve had 3 inspections so far (with 2 more to go) and I’m very happy with the clear and thorough presentation of their findings with plenty of pictures of the house.Their availability to explain and clarify any questions about the reports was great too.Damian and his team(Michael, Darrin, Mel) have excellent work ethics and went the extra mile to meet some of my requests. I would highly recommend them to anyone that wants that extra peace of mind with their build/home.

This is our first build and so having an independent inspection was a must. Michael, Damien and the whole team at South West have been fantastic. We used them during the 4 stages of the build and I'll also be using them at handover. The reports were emailed to me the same day of the inspection and were detailed and thorough. We especially loved the aerial shots of our house!I have recommended South West to friends who are building and will continue to do so. Looking forward to completing our building journey with them til PCI!

Just wanted to thank Michael, Justin, Damian and Melaine for the inspection on our new house. From my initial enquiry with Damian, this entire process has been faultless.Your communication is excellent and the level of detail you went through the inspection certainly put us, as first time buyers at ease and provided peace of mind. You explained everything in a way that could be easily understood.Your team comes highly recommended and that was very clear today. We will not hesitate to recommend Southwest Property Inspections to our friends and family.
