Searching for a building or pest inspector in Brisbane to give you an independent, unbiased review of a home or building you desperately want to purchase? Knowing who to trust can be confusing. When it comes to building and pest inspection Brisbane, it’s comforting to know that for over 20 years Australians have continually relied on Action Property Inspections. You can too. Here’s why.


The team at Action Property Inspections are not just builders who know a thing or two about property. They are professionally accredited and insured and, most importantly, licensed building inspectors. What makes their service stand out amongst the crowd however is that all building and pest inspections not only comply with Australian Standards, but exceed them.


Word of mouth and local referrals are always essential when seeking a qualified team to service your needs, especially when you are about to outlay a lot of money on a property.

Action Property Inspections pride themselves on the fact that over 80% of work is via the grapevine, or client referrals. Whilst originally undertaking domestic and commercial construction, Andrew Mackintosh moved into the building inspection sector of the industry and established Action Property Inspections in 1995. A well established company with an impeccable track record. A company that is here to stay. With almost 30 years of experience in the industry, they know exactly what to look out for.


It’s always important to hire a building inspector that is not aligned to either the Real Estate Agent or on side with the homeowner. When you can be guaranteed that the inspection will be completely independent, you can be sure that the facts presented in the final report will be a true reflection of the condition of the property.


Action Property inspections specialises in building inspections. It is beneficial and convenient to have building and pest inspections carried out on your property at the same time, and we are happy to coordinate with an independent, specialist pest inspector to provide this service.


In order to perform a thorough inspection of a property, inspectors utilise a range of equipment that helps to ensure results are not just based on surface level observations. Moisture detection testing and thermal imaging scanning are essential elements to a building inspection. Pest inspectors also carry Termatrac detection equipment as well as internal wall scope equipment.


There’s nothing worse than being handed a report at the conclusion of the inspection only to find out that it’s hard to understand and you’re left in the lurch not knowing what to do with the findings. Action Property Inspections provide free ongoing support so you can confidently ask questions when you need to. They also guarantee that their comprehensive reports will always be jargon free, backed up with extensive photographic evidence and be very easy to understand.

Use this building inspections checklist to assist you in choosing a building and pest inspection company. We are confident that you will see where the others don’t meet the reliability and quality offered by Action Property Inspections.

When it comes to organising a building and pest inspection for a property you are keen on purchasing, you can trust the team at Action Property Inspections. The locals in Brisbane sure do!

Action Property Inspection Reviews

reviews“Action Property Inspections are very prompt, thorough and professional. They provide the best service and value for money. Andrew is a very pleasant and professional person to deal with. His reports are very detailed and tell you exactly what is wrong and the time frame when it needs to be repaired. Other companies I have used in the past use the words “it appears” in their reports, with Andrew it is what it is. We managed to re-negotiate the contract price to get the repairs done using his report. I will definitely use him in the future! Highly recommend.”

reviews“Had Andrew inspect a property for me prior to purchase. He was exceptionally thorough. Went into and on the roof, under the floor, even checked the sheds. When it came time for the verbal report he went out of his way to ensure that the agent would not be able to overhear – which they actually tried to do. The written report was extensive with plenty of photographs. In fact, when I showed it to my friend, who has over 40 years experience in real estate and the building industry, his response was that it was the best prepared and most thorough report he’d ever seen. Based on that report I was able to cancel the contract which saved me thousands of dollars in repairs and future maintenance costs. I highly recommend both Andrew and Action Property Inspections. The fee may be higher than others in the industry, but it’s an investment well worth making.”

– Kezza,  Brisbane 2020

reviews”Highly recommend the professional service from Action Property Inspections. Andrew was very thorough, and explained everything in detail to ensure I fully understood what I am heading into as a first home buyer. From my dealings to date with API and Andrew, I believe they genuinely care about providing detailed and informed results for their clients.”
