Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)



What are Glasgow Vendor Pre-Sale Reports?

Glasgow Vendor Pre-Sale Reports have been created for the Vendor when selling their home.  We at Glasgow have thought of a way to reduce the stress to Vendors, Purchasers, Real Estate Agents and Conveyances by designing our Glasgow Vendor Pre-Sale Reports.  Our Reports include our Structural Building and Full Pest Inspection & Reports, with our combined knowledge of 40 years!  Additional services added for Peace of Mind are our Electrical Safety checks, Owner Builder 137b Defects Reports and Project Management Services for any requested building works.

Why a Property Inspection will assist me?

The property inspection assists you in knowing any major defects and conditions conducive to structural damage for example: timber roof frame defects, damaged building elements; evidence of mould, lack of ventilation to the subfloor space, rodents inhabiting the roof space; cracking in the internal plasterboard lining and external cladding.  Knowing more about the property you’re deciding to purchase will assist you in determining a dollar figure for remedial or rectification works giving you the power of negotiation.

Are Verbal Reports cheaper?

Yes, verbal reports are cheaper.  You can join the inspector on site and get all the required information then and there or the inspector can phone you with the results of the inspection.  As this is not a professional written report, it is a cheaper option.  However, any major defects will be provided in written format.

Does Glasgow Building Inspections provide Pest Inspections?

Yes we do.  Glasgow Building Inspections can also provide you with Pest Inspections.  We have qualified Pest Inspectors on staff, that have been in the Industry for over 25 years, with the experience and knowledge that are second to none.

Is it cheaper to book a combined Building and Pest Inspection?

Yes it is.  If you require both building and pest inspections, then book a combined inspection, as each individually will be more expensive.

Are Glasgow Building Inspectors, Qualified, Registered and Insured?

Yes, Glasgow Building Inspections employees are all Qualified, Registered and Insured Building Surveyors and Building Inspectors.

You can visit the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) Website, (Registered Practitioners Governing Body), to check any Registered Practitioners Registrations.  Also, we have our I.D. Cards available upon request.
