Yes I have done a search, and can't find one that specifically says anything about what inspections people should/shouldnt do or their experience of them overall. The majority of them have been about a specific problem and then building inspections done.

Also havent had any current building inspector (have gotten a range of quote) mentioned anything about precontract signing. Why would you have a building inspector go over your contract?

Hi All
Reading through all the various posts and am interested in thoughts from those that have used independent building inspectors.
Would you use them at each stage ie: slab, plate, roof, look up and PCI? Or just certain points throughout the build, and if so which one/s.

We are still in early planning stages, just waiting for our pre-start to happen but want to know to factor costs in for a building inspector. Have had a couple of quotes and they range in prices of $1400 - 2000 if buying as a complete.

I'm thinking it's worth it but with all the costs constantly adding up am also having a wee anxiety attack each time I look at the list. But also mindful of if something is wrong and not picked up how much it could potentially cost us later on.

Thoughts please?

TIA

Afternoon All
I have been having a look through trying to find costs for recent prestart costs (ie last 12 months) with Homegroup WA. We have our prestart at the end of the month and wanting bit of an idea of what we might be up for.
Some of the extra's we will probably look at:
- Extra double power points
- Extra tiling in ensuite
- Extra tiling in scullery
- Plumbing for water for fridge
- If anyone has had any smart wiring put into the house for pay tv, internet, speakers integrated into ceiling and alfresco, for security system.
- Upgrades of tapware from silver to matt black.
- Upgrade of underlay for carpets
- Upgrade for continuous hot water

And any other upgrades that you think we might need.

Thanks in advance :-)

Hi we had our prestart Dec 2017 and we were emailed this for electrical additions, with tiling depends on what you’re after full height with their standard tiles in bathrooms were quoted between 3-4K so we went 1m high instead which was $200,
I’m not sure about underlay but I know a few others on this forum last year upgraded their underlay and it was a couple hundred.
