Tell us a little about yourself/your role at SPI Property Inspections

I am the Commercial Manager at SPI Property Inspections, and manage all aspects of Commercial work that comes in.  A few of the tasks I do, include coordinating the inspection services, allocating the jobs to our experienced inspectors, organise and approve proposals and general admin tasks within the Commercial department.

  1. Why do you think a building condition report is essential?
  • It can identify any structural or foundation issues
  • Identified issues can limit costly maintenance down the track / unexpected repairs
  • It can also give you buying power with the seller with negotiations


  1. What is the process? What do I need to do as the building owner when organising a building inspection?

Our process is fairly stress free….all we need you to do is contact us via email or phone with basic information about the property such as full address and size in square metres if known and we will do the rest. Once all relevant details are received, we will provide you with our quotation within 24 business hours. Upon receiving your approval of the quote, we will send your file to your Inspector for prompt booking with the nominated contact for access.
