Not all pre purchase inspections are the same

When buying a home, commercial building or rental property you need an honest, unbiased, accurate evaluation from a qualified, experienced building inspector. 

I requested First Look Limited to undergo a building inspection on my home to ascertain any areas which needed maintenance prior to selling. On receiving the report, I was surprised with the extent of work required to bring it up to standard. The report was very detailed and easy to understand. During the whole process I found Ricky to be very methodical and professional. It put me at ease to know the inspection was carried out by an accredited building surveying company. I would highly recommend First Look Limited to anyone requiring a building report.

I take pleasure in providing this testimonial for First Look Ltd.

First Look has provided a very thorough and concise building report on my property at Albany to identify any deferred maintenance issues. Prior to receiving the report, I was fairly confident that nothing too untoward would be identified How wrong I was. Several significant items relating to water ingress and structural damage were highlighted along with incorrectly installed window flashings and roofing.

Being a qualified builder, Ricky also provided helpful advice as to how to best remedy these issues.

Ricky was able to provide his report to the agreed deadline [a very quick 4 days] and all dealings were of a cordial nature.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ricky and First Look to prospective customers seeking condition reports on their residential dwellings.

Ricky’s background in building provided me with the peace of mind that he picked up everything that required maintenance on my house. His written report was detailed, concise and professional.

He was also very helpful to explain on the phone areas of the report that I did not quite understand.

Overall, he was a pleasure to deal with and am very pleased with his services. I can confidently recommend him to anyone looking for a building inspection report.
