I wanted to use the opportunity to tell about the advantages of using Independent Property Inspections. But I thought it would be better coming from our clients so I’ve included just some of the typical comments we receive regularly.
Hi Leon, Just a note to say thank you for a great effort, both Liz and I really appreciated your detailed explanations at the property, but we are overwhelmed by the detail in the report and you were right, the photo protection package was well worth it. We managed to renegotiate $5,800 off the price to allow for us to make the repairs you highlighted in the report. Thank you again and good luck with your business, you offer a great service.
Don & Liz Fox, Hobart. Hello James, RE; Old Monbulk Road, Belgrave.
Thank you again for your work. The report is great!! I’m seriously impressed with the speed in which you took to complete the report – including the design and layout of the document. The report – I feel – is also very thorough and we thank you for that. It’s been great to work with you and I trust the job has been completed more than satisfactorily
Thanks, Tamara Desiatov & Rodney W Cheuk.
WOW, what a fantastic service, I only rang to order the inspection yesterday and not only have you done the job but I’ve already got the completed report. I’ve just watched the DVD and it really does everything, I’ve inspected the unit three times but the DVD showed me stuff I hadn’t noticed before. We managed to get them to agree on getting the new roof put on before settlement so that saved us about eight grand and we don’t have anything else to worry about. Rob was fantastic to talk to and made it easy for us to understand everything. I still can’t get over how quick you made it happen. I only made one phone call. I have to say it again, WOW what a great service.
Jimmy Stephens, Huonville Tasmania Dear Dayle.
I had to thank you for your advice. Using the report you did on Tuesday I used it to renegotiate the contract price by $13,300. Although I tried for $15,000 I still think I got a good deal. I will take you up on the half price pre-settlement inspection offer, I’ll let you know when.
Thanks again for attention to detail and the promptness. I was amazed to get the full report with the photo protection package on Tuesday afternoon, I reckon you blokes have got the inspection business sown up. I will be telling every one I know about you.
Cheers, Robert Johnston. Brighton Tasmania.
I must say the inspection was a real eye opener for me, I’m really glad I took your advice and come with you on the inspection, I had no idea it would be so thorough and I learnt so much about the house. I know I would never go into all the places we did ever again. You know the best part was knowing a lot more about the house is was able to explain all the problems we found and get them to fix them all before we move in. I would have had to get contractors in to do the repairs and we all know how expensive and unreliable they are. I wanted to thank you and tell you I will be recommending you to everybody I know.

Hi Pete. Well what a disaster. Just goes to show I’m no judge when it comes to picking a house. If you hadn’t found the problem under the house before it was too late. That would have cost me an absolute fortune, I know the bank would not have given me any more money to have it all fixed. The engineers quoted over $45,000 to underpin the foundations and replace the damaged sections of brickwork. I owe you big time Pete, you just saved me from financial ruin. I’ll be getting you to inspect the next one I find even before I make the offer. I still can’t believe how thorough your inspection and report is. I’ll be in touch soon.

G’day Ross, You were first recommended to me by the agent, then my bank manager gave me your business card, then is was talking to the tea lady at the office and she told me you did a report for her son last week. Now after seeing what you do first hand I have to agree with them all. Excellent service, the best building report I’ve ever seen, the verbal report was also great but it was the report detail and the advice you gave me that really saved me thousands and the 5 Star Rating really confirmed it in my own mind. I know we have got a great deal. Thank you very much and sorry for all the phone calls to get your advice.
Bill & Sonya McGregor, Deer Park. Victoria.
Hi Leon, again! Thank you for doing our inspection at such short notice, I know you went out of your way to make it happen for us and both Rob and I are really grateful. You’ll be pleased to know we got the house at the Auction and paid much less than we were prepared to pay. However we would not have even put a bid in unless we had your report first. We got caught badly the last time by not having an inspection done and it cost us over twenty thousand in repairs. Anyway I just wanted to thank you we are both fans of Independent Property Inspections and we will be recommending your services when ever we can.
Forever grateful, Rob & Joan Rawlins. Churchill Ave. Sandy Bay.
Dear Leon. The service I received from your company was exceptionally professional, I was astounded at the level of detail in the report and the prompt service was just amazing. The inspection was done after lunch on Wednesday and I got a full verbal report at 3:15 then I received the written report with 50 something photos by 4:30. I managed to get a reduction in the price by $4,800 so I can get the items you found repaired after I move in next month. If everybody delivered their services like Independent Property Inspections then the world would be a much better place. Thank you.

Hello Dayle. I wanted to thank you for delivering a fantastic report yesterday, we didn’t expect it so soon. We knew the house was a bit of a renovators delight but we had now idea about the rusted out roofing and the old lead wiring. We can do the painting and cleanup but we had to negotiate the cost of the rewire and the new roof. They didn’t want to budge but when I showed them your report they stopped arguing and we got what we wanted. Thank you for all your advice and using the report to negotiate the price really did the trick. It saved us nearly $18,000 on the deal.
Yours sincerely Phyllis & Roger James. Derwent Terrace. New Norfolk.
Hi Leon, I’m so glad I took your advice, the building report proved to be the most powerful negotiating tool I had, even though it only cost me $350 I was able to highlight the defects you found and I was able to negotiate for the owners to fix some of them and they agreed to reduce the price by $7,500 to allow for me to get the site drainage system installed and have the new vents installed. And thank you for your referral to the drainer he was very prompt with his quote too, without your advice and detailed report I would have been left paying full price and then paying for all the repairs on top. I now know how valuable your service really is you have saved me a small fortune thank you so much.

As you can see the power of using a professional inspector and a detailed condition report cannot be denied.
