Thanks to our Buildspect Report and its writer Matt Osborne we were able to identify all the defects within our home. We were able to provide evidence to VCAT that informed a very successful outcome.
Matt Osborne provided clear and detailed information that made clear to ourselves and VCAT the extent of the defects in our home.
Matt Osborne provided excellent witness testimony and was able to provide detailed knowledge and clarify to the court the basis of his inspection. I would highly recommend this service and in particular Matt Osborne.

Buildspect did not deliver and also did not honour their contract. Buildspect were paid several thousand dollars to oversee works, but they were ineffective. We still have a leaky, mouldy roof. When we approached Buildspect to remediate this issue, they claimed it was "outside of the contract".
I will never use Buildspect again and suggest others steer clear.

Like the previous review, Buildspect did not complete the task, yet still invoiced me. I have disputed this invoice and their response was to refer it to a debt collector.
I engaged them to put together a building inspection report, that could be used in a dispute with my builder. They accepted this engagement, however, on reviewing an existing report which was put together by the builder (which would have taken them 5min), declined to go any further stating they could not/would not add any value.
I assumed that was the end of it, but 2 months later received an invoice for a considerable amount.
I have referred them to Consumer Affairs

All was good except for the day the neighbour was upset as an appointment was made with her at 10am and the inspector did not turn up we later found out he was elsewhere and advised that he did not have a work order for the job. It was eventually sorted but neighbour was not happy and client would have preferred more communication all round.

Buildspect were requested to review a new build and provide a report on the quality and level of workmanship.
The report provided was clear concise and professional in its summary and presentation outlining all areas of builder related non compliance to standard and regulation throughout the job.
I would recommend BuidSpect and certainly use them to provide expert guidance.

We engaged Buildspect for a property inspection, prior to purchase. The review was detailed, thorough and provided quotes on rectification which we can now verify were accurate. They were timely, and it was easy to arrange. The consultant was also available to for a phone call to discuss any questions we had about the report. This was immensely helpful. Highly recommend.

My job was a small one but Buildspect treated as seriously as any expensive project
Review by Adewumi3 years ago
Peter was excellent. Very respectful of our pool. Report was helpful. Referred us to have the Pool X-Rayed and a Chemical Engineer - Andrew came to assist. From the outset Buildspect were on the ball. When everyone else in the pool business came up with all different theories as to what was wrong with our pool. Peter and Andrew did not assume anything. They conducted tests and gave the data; which showed where the pool builder had made mistakes. The pool builder then couldn't argue. Whilst we still haven't settled as the matter in now in VCAT the buildspec employees have always answered our calls promptly. They have always been respectful of our property. I would definitely use them again and would have no hesitation in recommending Buildspec.

Well, they were willing to take money for a half completed job could not accurately investigate and document a very simple building defect which stalled my case over a month with no right up. I requested my money back at. First, they were not forthcoming. To which I walked away from but said I would follow up when I had time. They eventually recognised and refunded my initial deposit.

John of Buildspect attended an AGM (after hours) to assist Owners understanding of the Engineers Report and steps to achieve a reasonable outcome for Owners if they decided to proceed to VCAT.
All Members present were satisfied with the advice given by John
