REQUEST YOUR INSPECTION

The average time on site inspecting a dwelling and property is approximate 2 to 3 hours on site on and then another hour in the office proofing after a typist has completed the reports. The reports include colour photos and are presented to the client in a display folder mailed directly to the client in the post. Reports are also emailed to the Client and Solicitor or Conveyance if email addresses are provided.

WHY  THERMAL IMAGING

Using a HIGH END thermal camera, Mal can detect defects that cannot be seen by the naked eye that may prove to be costly repairs that the buyer would not have been aware of.

Thermal imaging cameras range in price and Mal being a qualified licenced builder knows that good tools do a better job so my thermal imaging camera is one of the expensive cameras costing over $25,000. Some cameras are as cheap as $3000 and would not detect as many defects.

The camera also detects heat which can be from termites and moisture from water leaks so it is essential to use someone that has a good thermal imaging camera.

Mal has been doing thermal imaging for over 10 years and has found termites and many other defects including water leaks by using thermal imaging.

OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Wow Incredible

To Mal Wright

My name is Samuel Shields and you recently inspected a property for me and my partner and we would like to thank you for the the pest and building report which blew us away with the quality of your services and how easy it was to read the reports; it was the best money I've spent on preliminaries.
The thermal camera was incredible a major water leak was detected with the thermal imaging camera that was not detectable with a naked eye which has now been fixed to prevent water damage occurring as the agent had their builder go out and fix it on our request while the purchase is under way. Thanks heaps and we will use you again on our next purchase.

We are from Sydney moving to Newcastle.

Good morning Malcolm
Please accept this email as a thank you for your thorough and prompt reports.
We are from Sydney and have been recently posted at Williamtown so we are new to the area, we went with the referral from fellow RAAF staff member my husband works with who highly recommended you and from your reports we can see why.
The reports were very easy to read and understandable, the pictures also helped. We liked that you followed up with a call to see if there was anything we need clarification on.
When we went to our Conveyancer and she asked who we were using to do our pest and building reports; when we mentioned your name her reply was "his the best your in great hands although the agent won't be happy"; " don't be surprised if the agent doesn't try and talk you into using another inspector"
We ended up buying the property although we provided a list from your report for rectifications under contract. Thanks we will also be recommending you.

Very Informative Reports.

Hi Mal,
Thank you for your reports.
I found the reports very informative, clear and enlightening.
They addressed the concerns we had about visible defects we identified in the property, and they also highlighted issues and concerns that would be apparent only to an experienced builder/pest inspector. It just shows how important it is to have an unbiased inspection by an ethical, qualified tradesperson.
We would not have known anything about the crack opening up between the two halves of the house if you hadn't identified it, and this is a defect that could end up costing a significant amount to rectify, if it gets worse.
Equally, we would have known nothing about the poor drainage beneath the foundations until it caused other problems, and by then the cost to us could be very significant.
Your identification the termite treatment drill holes also waved some red flags for us.
I am waiting on my solicitor's comments on the reports, but I personally believe that there are too many significant, if not major, defects/issues to make our purchase of the property, in its current condition, a sensible financial decision.
Many thanks for your inspection and the detailed reports.
Regards

Agents don’t like him because he is too thorough

Mal is very knowledgeable, thorough and passionate about his work. I discovered him just Google searching because I'm not a Newcastle local. I was impressed by his website compared to others and began to ask real estate agents if Mal was any good and their responses were basically "agents don't like him because he is too thorough". I thought this was a good thing and feel like I now have invaluable knowledge about my new house which I wouldn't otherwise have known.

More thorough than the opposition

When I was going off to buy my first house I thought it was a good idea to get two inspectors in. Off the first report we would have bought the house. When reading Mal's report however we reconsidered. Mal picked up on many defects that the first inspector missed, many of which would have cost us thousands in the very short term. He inspected our second choice and we are the proud owners of a home that needs minimal work. Thanks Mal.

I’d heard that Mal is pedantic and this is certainly true.

I have seen too many pest and building reports that are rushed, generic and superficial. When buying a property that we could potentially be in for decades to come, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars we really wanted to make a wise decision. I'd heard that Mal is pedantic and this is certainly true. His report was thorough and alerted us to a number of issues we would not have otherwise seen. He provided comprehensive explanations of not only the problems with the property but suggested solutions to fix them. He made an effort to inspect the subfloor and roof areas of the house and his report was filled with very helpful photos to accompany his recommendations. He was also happy to talk at length on the phone regarding the details he provided. Additionally, Mal (along with his administration support staff) were prompt, professional and very personable. I highly recommend his service.

Mal's attention to detail, thorough reporting, professional manner, and prompt service are second to none.

We will be recommending Mal to friends and family and will definitely be going to him for any future pest and building matters.

Best money we ever spent. Can’t thank Mal enough.

We have had a number of pre-purchase inspections over the years but none have been so thorough and impressive as the inspection done by Mal.

Mal took the time before, during and after the inspection to make sure we were fully informed and understood the process and the report. Mal had lots of knowledge and went above and beyond. Thanks for the information about the solar system, it was something we never would have known.

The report enabled us to negotiate a good purchase price. Mal's report was easy to understand and included a lot of information usually missed by other inspectors. We will use this to prioritise our renovations and make our money stretch as far as possible.

Thanks Mal, you are awesome.

Dear Mal,
I wanted to say thank you for the great service you provided us. You were prompt, professional and went above and beyond with your help and advice. It is invaluable to feel as though the house that we are going to retire in has been so thoroughly investigated.
It is a true saying that 'you get what you pay for' and I am sure had we gone for a 30 minute "cheapie" we would have been paying out a lot in the future.

No wonder they say you are the best in the business.

Hi Mal,
Thank you so much for your pest and building report on our recent purchase in the Newcastle area. The reason we used you is when we took a look at the house with the Real Estate Agent we noticed some defects with the house and then when we received our pest and building reports from another company the items we noticed were not in those reports so we asked around and on recommendation we had a second lot of reports done where we used yourself. After receiving your very very thorough reports we realised that the first inspections were inadequate, hard to read and the inspector had missed many items. There was no comparison between your reports and the previous reports we received with your report being very readable and the pictures helped. We managed to get a large price reduction on the property from being aware of all of the defects noted in your report where the other report from the other company would not have allowed us to do so as it did not alarm us with the defects to be able to make negotiations on the property.
Thank you so much once again..

I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone!

Thank you for your thorough inspection and reports. Discovering the defects on my potential investment property has provided me with the opportunity to approach the agent, who on behalf of the vendor have hired a builder to get an accurate quote on repairing/correcting the defects. This will allow for a fair re-negotiation of the property price before I sign the contract.

Wow Thermal Imaging and the Flexiscope

To Mal Wright
Thank you for your assistance with your modern tools in my day we didn't have that sort of technologically although televisions where just released for the common person and black and white TV is all that existed. I was referred to you from 3 different people and found your services fantastic and unbelievable, thank you for demonstrating the thermal imaging camera to show me what it does. You came to our house and detected termites that recent previous pest experts did not find and you even found live termites which was scary although you provided us a pest expert to treat the dwelling and rid the termites. My wife and I are over 80 years old and yes we were very distressed with your findings however have since realized without your expertise the damage over time would of escalated and devastate our home. Do other pest experts and companies know of your tools, do you advertise and why are you not a pest expert with your knowledge?
I have told all the people at the bowling club about you and I think others should know of what the tools you have combined.

Very Impressed

Good Morning Mal
I was very impressed with your services and after reading the pest and building reports this morning; I was amazed at the detail you went into, listing many items that require being addressed I was unaware of. The photographs included in your report was a big help along with the wording of your reports was very easy to read and understand as they say "a picture tells a thousand words". I am going to use the reports to try and renegotiate the price and if I end up with the property will use the reports as a check list to have works done so that when I sell the property and home, that the condition will be better than it was when I purchased the property. I come from Sydney and a new comer to the area; your services including the over phone conversation going through the report was immensely helpful.

Thank you again.

"Mal inspected a Victorian Era property for us, one which we had many concerns over due to its age. From the outset Mal provided timely, thorough and direct assistance.

Great work Mal

Thanks for the great work Mal providing the pest and building reports on time and they were very well presented in a professional folder. The defects you reported on was good reading which even my wife understood and gave us a great insight on what we are considering purchasing. I had no idea when we saw the house of any of the defects that you noted as we were looking at more where our furniture is going to go and only had you inspect the property on our solicitors advice.
Thankfully we took his advice and used you as we have had a builder estimate on the repairs which have been quoted at just over $30,000 and have decided not to purchase the property as the vendors will not re-negotiate the price. Will be in contact when we find another suitable property.

Hi Mal there are not enough words to thank you for your high standards of reporting, we used you twice as the first house we didn't buy and found a better house the second time for the same price with lesser defects. With out your assistance we may have settled on the first house and would of been really sorry latter on.
Lucky we didn't listen to the real estate agent who recommended another cheaper inspector even though we found out latter he used YOU himself when purchasing his own house off our friends just recently.

With Boundless Thanks

Dear Mal,
Please be my guest in submitting this testimonial on your web site.
Mal Wright just saved me from making the biggest financial mistake in my lifetime. In comparison to the amount of money that I invested in the building and pest inspection, it saved me hundreds and thousands of dollars and also saved me from mountains of stress and anxiety in addition to financial ruin! This all equalling to many sleepless nights in addition to having a negative effect on my health.
When I spoke to Mal his genuine concern shone through, where he went about explaining in detail the atrociousness state of the property.
Please note: that the property looked as pretty as a post card, there was no way the buyer could have known anything was wrong, the kitchen and bathroom had been renovated and the advertisement on the web stated (Nothing to do but move in)
The bottom line is that Mal Wright saved me $50,000 to $60,000 in fixing the pending issues, and on top of that the sales price of the property.
With boundless GRATITUDE!

Thank you Mal!!

Absolutely Amazed

To Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections,
Thank you very much for spending the time with us going through your detailed pest and building reports over the phone.
It was very handy after receiving the email and also receiving the hard printed copy in the mail which was very well presented and gave us something to keep as a record other than an electronic record.
We have shown many of our friends your report who some are in the building industry who commented on how professional your reports are.
When we rang around to find prices you were about $65 dearer than other options, however having heard horror stories of people choosing the cheaper option we thought $65 extra was not so much extra for such a large investment to be assured that the inspections were carried out by a professional such as yourself.
We have used the reports as a checklist to fix all the defects that you noted, minor and major so that one day when we sell the house we won’t have the problems you noted.
We are very proud house owners thanks to your great report.

Hi Mal you performed a pest and building inspection recently for us in Tea Gardens and we were both so very impressed with you service and knowledge of building and pest so we took it upon ourselves to send you this to use on your web site so others can see the difference between a cheap inspection and your service. We originally had another slightly cheaper inspector look at the property and there were things we even picked up not in the other inspectors report so we asked around and every person we spoke to mentioned your name adding that you are the best and very thorough so we went and ordered an inspection on your easy to use online booking form. Once we received the report the follow day after you performed the report we were flabergastered to see the amount of problems and defects you reported on that the cheaper inspector did not pick up or report on. You are worth every cent and we will use you again when we find another property we like.

Confidence and Trust in Mal Wright

We recently purchased our first home, which we learnt is a very daunting process.
As a young couple, we weren't aware of, a lot of the important exterior aspects to
the property, and we found Mal to be very informative and approachable towards
our understanding of these exterior defects. He provided us with thorough condition
reports combined with follow-up conversations on the defects found. The result of
these defects allowed us to successfully negotiate $10,000 off our original offer (as it
was subject to pest & building inspection) and we couldn't be more grateful.

We would like to thank Mal for his insightful knowledge of the building industry and
his exceptionally efficient service which at the end of the day, gave us the confidence
we needed to buy our first home.

We could not recommend Mal Wright more highly in every aspect of our dealings.

You came highly recommended and now I know why.

A quick note to say thank you so much for your comprehensive and professional building and pest inspection report you recently prepared for me with regard to the property I ended up purchasing in Port Stephens.
I work in financial markets and am a licensed real estate agent, and I come across such reports on a regular basis and am very familiar with their standard format and the limited information they usually contain. In contrast, your report was impressive in that the level of diagnostic details, feedback and suggested course of action it contained, supported by photographic proof, was just excellent; it provided me with a clear understanding of the state of the property, and was instrumental in my negotiation to secure a good deal.
Furthermore, your building knowledge and common sense ideas in relation to potential future work that could be undertaken to improve the layout of the property and maximise on its location and potential value was most appreciated and I can’t thank you enough. You came highly recommended and now I know why. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who is looking to move to or invest in the Port Stephens area.
Once again, my sincere thanks for a job well done.

I was tossing up if the slightly higher price was worth it.

This was the first time I used Mal, but the 4th building & pest inspection I have purchased. To be honest, I was tossing up wether the slightly higher price was worth it, but after the detail and service I received, I now know it was definitely worth it. Although I can't comment on other companies work, I can say that they certainly didn't sound as thorough or confident of their process. If anyone is unsure about using Mal, DON'T BE, he really is Mr Pedantic IMHO, even picking up on a minor defect at the front of the house that I walked straight past several times. He also gave me invaluable information on the extent of some of the more major defects that I wasn't sure about. And this is coming from someone who is pretty hands on. I think you will always get value out of an inspection by Mal.

Thank you for getting acess to the difficult areas under the dwelling.

Good Morning Mal
You recently performed a building and pest inspection at my place at Birmingham Gardens and I thank you so much for accessing the areas that was difficult to access as this showed up major defects that I would not have been aware of and allowed us to negotiate a lesser price so we can attend to having the issues rectified.
You are the best as they all told me before I used you and they were right.

It’s easy when buying an older house to get sucked into doing cosmetic fixes at the expense of the less glamorous work.

We recently engaged Mal to complete a post purchase pest & building inspection on our new home. Given the house was over 60 years old, we expected a few surprises. Mal was easy to deal with and quick to respond with information. The report he produced was comprehensive and provided a clear list of what needed to be attended to. He also made it clear what issues should take priority to ensure the houses structural and foundational integrity. It’s easy when buying an older house to get sucked into doing cosmetic fixes at the expense of the less glamorous work. Mal makes it clear what needs to be done and in what order to ensure the investment is protected and the house will remain sound. He is practical in his advice and this helps a lot when engaging people to do the work. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Mal Wright was a pleasure to deal with from initial contact to receipt of his inspection reports

I met with Mal on-site after he had completed his inspection. He walked me around the property, informed me of potential issues associated with the building and identified termite activity within on-site vegetation to help me make an informed decision prior to the purchase of the property. Mal was professional, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. His report documentation is particular and well-informed. Highly recommended and I will be referring him to my friends.

I found Mal to be most thorough and professional in the work he undertook in preparing the reports.

At the recommendation of my solicitor I engaged Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections to prepare Building and Pest Reports for our New Lambton Heights dwelling house prior to offering it for sale. This was to ensure that any building or pest issues raised in the reports could be addressed and rectified before the dwelling was placed on the market.

I found Mal to be most thorough and professional in the work he undertook in preparing the reports. His advice and guidance has been invaluable in ensuring that our dwelling has been able to be presented to potential buyers in the best possible light.

Your’re doing a great job!

Your're doing a great job! I discovered you by google searching and found your website to be the best. Then I began asking agents at inspections if you were good and most of them said that you were too anal and thorough but they would use you. They are right and we were so impressed with you and your thoroughness and advice and your easy to understand report. It's such a nerve racking process buying property so thanks for your help and wish us luck.
Thanks again,

You are the best Pest and Building Inspector

Thank you Mal for you inspections we have purchased many homes but have never had such thorough reports and the photos helped immensely.
We ended up buying the house at a reduced price thanks to your reports we were able to negotiate the cost of the repairs off the price so thank you once again. I have told our conveyance whom recommended you how happy we are and will pass you name on to anyone buying a property.
Being able to discuss the reports with you over the phone also helped so great service and was worth every cent.

Thank you for doing my Handover Report

You recently performed a handover building inspection at a dwelling I was having built in Aberglasslyn. The builder did his quality control and was ready to hand the house over, however a friend of mine advised me not to take possession until you had performed your handover inspection which was good advice. After receiving your super thorough report it became apparent that your standards of quality were understandably higher than my builders. On your advice I served a copy of your report to my builder who happily fixed all the defects you noted which would have been difficult to rectify after I had moved all my furniture in because of the dust and excess paint that would have been caused from the rectifications. It was a pleasure to see somebody who takes great pride in their inspections with such an eagle eye for detail. I would happily recommend you to anybody else having a new house built.

READ MORE

Unlike his competitors, Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections spends as long as it takes sometimes over 4 hrs inspecting your potential new home or investment, he actually crawls inside the roof and under the floor to find any faults that you NEED to know about. The in depth reports are easy to read and are presented in layman’s terms and include pictures so they are able to be read and understood by you, the client. Mal will discuss the report in full with you the client if required.

You will find operators who are up to $100 cheaper, BUT the faults they miss could cost you 10s of thousands of dollars ($$$) in the long run not knowing what you are getting into before buying the property.
