Jim’s Building Inspections in Western Australia operates with one goal in mind – ensuring that you know as much as you can about a property before you spend. Buying a home can be an exciting and confusing time, so don’t risk falling in love with a house that could be costly in the future.
We offer a range of services, from pre-purchase inspections to asbestos, termites to construction inspections – so when you are thinking about buying a house, be sure to instruct Jim’s Building Inspections in Western Australia to give you confidence and peace of mind.
Choose Your Western Australia Building Inspection
When you are thinking of buying a new property, it makes sense to get an inspection. Following the boom that led to the demand for property outstripped supply – and housing standards suffered. Substandard buildings created by slipshod builders and unscrupulous construction managers.
Even after this had been recognised, there is still no legal need for a pre-purchase inspection – they are not compulsory. However, the responsibility of buying a house without defects rests with you – as the buyer. 1 in 3 houses in Australia are sold with significant defects, a third pf properties have asbestos, and 1 in 5 homes in Perth will be affected by termites.
These issues are not easy to find. They may be covered with ‘band aid’ solutions to get through the sales process, or not known about at all – so it makes sense to ensure that you are getting all the information you need before you make a purchase. Jim’s Building Inspections in Western Australia can help with all types of building inspections.
A pre-purchase inspection is a floor-to-eaves assessment that includes analysis from experienced inspectors. With a range of options, we can assess the house structure, other buildings, pool safety, wiring and plumbing – we use our experience to make sure that you are fully informed and empowered to make the right purchase decision.
- Termites/Timber Pest Inspection
Termites can spread fast and cause untold damage to a property if left unchecked. We work with Jim’s Termite and Pest Control division, so if we find a problem, we can give you a solution.
Although asbestos has been illegal in-house construction since 1989, there are still properties that should be investigated now. With the huge risk to health, and the large cost of remediation, an asbestos check could save your health and your pocket.
Western Australia has the highest methamphetamine use in the whole country – and illicit drug use in a property can contaminate it. Exposure can cause health risks such as headaches, nausea, respiratory problems and even birth defects and cancer.
We also offer Industrial and Commercial Buildings Inspections, Dilapidation Reports and New Construction Inspections, too – whatever your need, Jim’s Building Inspections in Western Australia can empower you to make better purchasing decisions.

Jim’s Building Inspections Perth – Serving Western Australia
If you are considering buying or building a property in Western Australia, you can protect your investment by getting one of our certified inspectors to check for defects, pest infestations and any other problem that could cost you money in the long run.
Building inspections in Western Australia are not compulsory before purchase, but we want to give buyers the confidence to be able to make an offer on what could be the biggest investment you are likely to make. Jim’s Building Inspections Perth are part of a network of building inspectors that complete 5,000 inspections every month in Australia – and that means we have hands-on knowledge and experience of building, construction and real estate agents that we can offer you.
We are there for you “before you buy, before you build” – and building inspections in Western Australia from this branch of the Jim’s trusted brand offer reliable, quality service whether you need an asbestos inspection, need advice and treatment for termites, or even a construction inspection for a self-build project.
Why Choose Building Inspections from Jim’s?
The Jim’s brand is known throughout Australia for customer-focused, quality, reliable service – and here at Jim’s Building Inspections Perth we are experienced and knowledgeable about all the problems that homes and businesses in Western Australia might face.
During the boom period in Western Australia, property demand outstripped supply, meaning that it was simpler for substandard buildings to be quickly thrown up by unscrupulous builders and construction managers. As the largest building inspections company in Western Australia, Jim’s has seen the way in which these houses may not have been built according to Australian Standards – or even where the build quality is just not up to scratch. We want everyone to be confident in their purchase, and that is why we offer comprehensive building inspections in Western Australia that can help you make better purchasing decisions.
What Inspections are Offered?
Jim’s Building Inspections Perth offer more than pre-purchase checks. Our well-trained team are knowledgeable in many different types of inspection, such as:
- Termite and Timber Pest Inspections
Termites can spread fast, and if left untreated can cause structural damage that could cost thousands of dollars of damage. Our Termite Inspection team understand the habits and behaviours of termites, recognising the conditions that they favour for nesting, breeding, and eating. We are lucky enough to work closely with the Jim’s Termite and Pest Control division, so if we do discover a problem, we are able to engage technicians to deal with the problem.
- Methamphetamine Inspections
Illicit drug use in a property can cause contamination, which can lead to health risks including respiratory problems, nausea, and headaches, with long-term issues like miscarriage, birth defects and even cancer. Methamphetamine residue is not visible and leaves no chemical odour, so it needs highly trained inspectors to assess and test areas of the property. Remedial work for methamphetamine contamination can cost anywhere between $5,000 – $50,000.
- New Construction Inspections
An experienced, independent inspector on site can keep construction on schedule, and Jim’s Building Inspections Perth can ensure that each stage of a build has been completed to the required standards – so you can make staged payments with confidence.
- Asbestos Inspections
Asbestos is an extremely dangerous substance, and with potentially thousands of products used in house construction before 1990 containing this material, it is especially important that any sources are found and dealt with safely. Lung problems and cancers are just two of the associated conditions that asbestos can cause, so a certified asbestos inspector will be able to inspect, assess and test a property to ensure that no asbestos is present.
Of course, at Jim’s Building Inspections Perth, we also offer industrial and commercial building inspections and property condition reports – so find out how Jim’s building inspections in Western Australia can help you make the best decisions about a property.
The decision to get your dream home inspected before you buy, is one of the best decisions you can make, to reduce the risk of inheriting structural damage, termites or even asbestos – which could cost you THOUSANDS to fix.
A termite, or any other pest infestation in either your current, or future property, can cause THOUSANDS of dollars in structural damage. We spare no corner or crevice when inspecting your property.
If your property was built before 1990, it is essential to get it checked for asbestos BEFORE starting any renovations, or purchasing. Our comprehensive inspections will find where the asbestos is, and what conditions it is in..
Building your own home can be a dream come true! Don’t let it become a living nightmare! When you build, make sure you get an independent building inspector to inspect progress at various stages of the process.
