Pre-Auction Reports

Pre-Auction reports are a valuable resource to fully evaluate the property before placing a well-informed bid or making an offer prior to auction.

The Vendor may have completed a Vendor Report with Rod Poyser Inspections to provide the purchaser with an insight into the property before it goes to auction. If not, we can do a “Pre-Auction” report for you.
The process and format of the report is the same as a pre-purchase inspection for a property that is on the open market.

Construction / Stage Inspections

Are you overwhelmed or anxious about the construction of your new home or want an independent eye to examine each stage?

Take control of your property construction with a stage construction inspection with Rod Poyser Inspections who are completely independent of the house builder. Stage construction inspections are designed to ensure correct building techniques, workmanship and quality during the construction process. Issues not identified along the way can cause a bigger problem later on and delay each stage. Stages are:

  • Base/slab – prior to pouring concrete footings and slab area are inspected
  • Frame – prior to installation of interior wall frame and roof framing are inspected
  • Lock up/Enclosed – inspection completed of external walls, roof cladding, windows and doors and waterproofing before wet area flooring/tiles is installed
  • Fixing/Pre painting – prior to painting inspection completed of finishing as well as fittings and internal fixtures
  • Final Handover -inspection audit in accordance with the Australian Standards

Rod Poyser Inspections stage construction inspection process is as follows: You decide on the service required – either our Series Package of inspections; any stage you are concerned about; or the final handover only. We liaise with the builder/site supervisor for a suitable time to access the site during construction. An electronic report with coloured photos is sent efficiently to you along with a verbal consultation. Second inspections to check if defects or certain omissions identified in the report have been satisfactorily rectified. Be reassured that everything is being built to a high quality of workmanship, materials and finishes by engaging Rod Poyser Inspections.

Dilapidation Reports

Are you concerned about the effects a construction project will have on neighbouring properties and want to avoid possible disputes?

A Dilapidation Report is a report on the actual condition of a property at a given point of time. It is to document any existing damage of a property prior to adjoining property site works commencing.

The state of any specific aspects of the property that may be affected by construction work, demolition or exaction is clearly documented. It protects both the client seeking a dilapidation report and the adjoining property owners to avoid disputes.

Dilapidation reports are carried out on the adjoining properties both before work commences and after they are completed. Construction and demolition work normally involves the use of heavy machinery and equipment, and can involve some extensive changes to the construction site. This work has the potential to cause damage to adjoining properties even with carefully managed projects.

Each report includes coloured photos, notes and measurements giving an accurate picture of the state of the properties inspected. Authorities may require areas to be documented beyond the building site. We include photographic and written record on our reports of the driveway cross over; footpaths and road side kerbs.
The reports are normally signed off by the owner of the property being inspected and the party completing the construction.

Rod Poyser Inspections know what to exactly look for when assessing the building and site for defects. We can complete the report efficiently to meet project timeframes.
