      "After getting frustrated with another inspection group, I called apbi and hoping I can get some help/support. It was the wisest decision I have ever made. They worked in an efficient way - did not take long to get connected and book the appointment. The staff talked in a very professional way and very patient. They looked after this job well by contacting the agent to confirm date and time. On the day, the inspector / Mr Glyn Jones came on time, which showed his professional working attitude. He answered all my questions in a patient way with all details. He did a full check on the property, not missing a corner. The report he created is comprehensive and easy to read. Overall I highly recommend apbi for their high quality service and professional attitude."

      "We had Glyn come out and do a building and pest inspection report and he did an excellent and thorough job. He identified major to even the most minor defects and provided a comprehensive report and was available to answer some additional questions that I had. As a result we were able to get the issues resolved by the seller before we moved into our new home. A really great experience and I would not hesitate to use APBI again in future. Thanks Glyn."

      "I sourced this building inspector after a friend built the same home and had a number of serious issues with the build. When initially speaking with them, they provided good pricing and were easy to communicate with. I arranged for a four site inspection for a new build. The building inspector was thorough and brought to my attention a number of issues that could have cause problems if not located. I recommended Apbi to a friend as well and she had nothing but, praise for them. I would highly recommend them!"

    -  Salma Van der Byl

  • 25 March 2020

      "Went around the site with the inspector, so I could chat to him as he pointed out various things. I strongly recommend doing this - you learn so much more than reading the report. Report is very comprehensive with lots of clear photos and explanations. Saved me buying a potentially disastrous money pit, so fantastic value for me!"

    -  Jeff Gray

  • 26 February 2020

      "I chose APBI because of the high ratings, the demo reports on their website and their competitive price. I?m so glad we did! Auction happened on Saturday so it was short notice but they organised a time with the real estate within a day and the report was done within 24 hours. I was able to call Glyn who answered all of my questions (if he didn?t know he would say to get advice from a specialised person which is fair enough). The report was consistent with the demo report- easy to read and I appreciate the ticks (minor; major) which broke it down. Happy with the customer service when organising. Overall will definitely use again!"

Unfortunately, home inspections in Sydney are not pass-fail. ... Rather, they are part of your due diligence duties as a responsible home buyer. They give you the information you need to decide whether to proceed with the purchase and/or renegotiate terms with the seller.
Home inspection deal breakers in Sydney are deficiencies discovered that alters the client's decision to purchase a house. Examples include structural damage, roof damage, and aging electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems. Environmental issues such as lead-based paint, asbestos, and mold can also be a deal breaker.
State laws, including seller disclosure laws, are the only instance where a seller is obligated to pay for repairs after a home inspection. For everything else, it's up to the negotiations between the buyer and seller, and who pays for what depends on what is decided after the inspection report comes in.
