The Melbourne building inspectors you can trust

Melbourne’s Leading Final Apartment Handover Inspections Service

When you buy your apartment, you want to be sure you get what you pay for. Your apartment must meet all the legal building requirements, the quality of finish needs to adhere to Australian Standards, and it should satisfy your own expectations.

So, you’ve bought your apartment, a very exciting, and possibly scary and uncertain time in your life. You’ve signed all the documents, paid your deposit and the building process has finished and the builder has finally completed the build.
