I had to share my experience when navigating the property marked I asked family and friends for advice they recommended CTP Pest and Building Inspections or Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections I chose Mal Wright as he had more experience. I could not believe local agents Shields and Co Property, Creer Property, LJ Hooker Warners Bay all had their preferred inspectors they recommended none of them were licensed builders with NSW Fair Trading and some reports I view was lacking in detail more like a tick and flick something the agent could have produced a matter of fact Leah Jay Property Managers do a more detailed Condition report between tenancies.

Thanks for picking up those couple of major defects, it was good to know before we made a decision to purchase or not. Appreciate your time on the phone and the detailed report.

Mal recently completed a pest and building inspection at a property we were looking at purchasing at Thornton. We received the reports the day after the inspection, it was detailed and had some pictures to show certain defects. Thanks for the service.

We recently had our final walkthrough with our site supervisor before getting the keys. We booked Mal to attend at the same time and he conducted a handover inspection separate to us. We received the report the next day with plenty of defects and pictures for us to pass onto our supervisor. These items will be getting fixed before we take possession of the property. We are glad we engaged Mal’s services, he was prompt and thorough. The whole process was very smooth and stress free.

Thanks

Mal completed a Pest and Building Inspection for us at Kurri, he was booked out almost 2 weeks in advance, but we had heard good things and were prepared to wait. Thank goodness we did, as there were quite a few issues with the property that weren’t picked up previously. Although we decided not to purchase that property, we will be using Mal for our next inspection. Thanks again Mal.

Mal completed a pest and building inspection for us for a purchase of a new property. We asked Mal to be very detailed and straight to the point and that’s exactly what he did. His reports were sent straight too us and they were very easy to read.

I had Mal do my building and pest inspection for a property that I am looking into buying. My partner (who works in the building industry) and I were so grateful and appreciative at how thorough and detailed the inspection was. Would definitely recommend to others. Thanks Mal!

Mal was very thorough, and very knowledgeable. No skirting around the issues. He told it as he saw it, exactly what I was looking for in a pre purchase inspection. Can highly recommend him.

I always knew that when it was time to finally take the plunge and buy a house, that I was going to rely on the best building and pest inspector I could find. And that’s why I decided to choose Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections was competitively priced and had good reviews, but I poured over his website and felt confident from the moment he responded to my initial email that he was a good operator and knew his business . His attention to detail was as advertised and I was very pleased at how responsive he was in communicating with me. Mal performed a combined building and pest inspection for me, including Meth swabs, and additional requests including inspecting a number of outbuildings, conducting a roof space investigation, and also to identify if specified pests that I am allergic to were present in the house. I also had the pleasure of going out on site and got to discuss my plans for my new home and watch Mal in action. He sure as hell worked for my dollar. He was covered in mud and grime and spiderwebs, and a great big smile and he truly was pedantic in identifying any and all minor and major issues with the property. What should have been a 1.5 hour inspection took far longer and he did it without complaint, making sure to really investigate all the areas needed. In sweltering heat and after normal business hours, Mal kept going until he ticked everything off my list. As Mal’s inspection took quite a bit longer than anticipated, he was very upfront that my report would also be delayed by a day on the basis of the detail he wanted to put in the report, and I was happy to wait. I was very happy to get his comprehensive report on the issues the property I was looking at had. While I had elected not to make my purchase contract conditional on the report, utilising an extended cooling off period instead, I was content that I understood what the issues were and had some good ideas on what to do about it, so I went into the sale eyes wide open ( which was great because there were issues , and some things that had not been done correctly by the vendor/ builder that would need to be rectified soon), and I was reassured as to the value and condition of the property thanks to Mal’s report and thoroughness. I would not hesitate to recommend Mal to anyone else seeking a building or pest inspection. I know that I will certainly use him again should I need his services again and endorse his skills and product as both value for money, and a smart investment in your future peace of mind.

Recently used this business for a pest and building report on a property we were looking to purchase. The report was thorough and detailed giving us the information we needed to make an informed decision to withdraw from the purchase. Glad to pay the fee, this has saved us a huge amount of money in the long run I am sure.

I chose Mal for our pest & building inspection after reading so many positive reviews, and I was not disappointed. Just like previous reviews, I too found him very thorough and his report was very detailed and well worth the money. Easy booking system, punctual, professional, not to mention Mal is just an overall lovely human being. Highly recommended

Mal recently completed a Pest and Building Inspection for us in Rutherford. He provided a quality service with a prompt turnaround of the reports. Mal and his team organised everything, which took away some of our stress during this already stressful time of purchasing our first property. Mal identified the problems from minor issues to major ones. Some of the safety issues identified were a bit worrying but we are working on getting these fixed before we settle.

Thanks Mal

Hi Mal, thanks again for your 5* work on the pest and building inspection at Aberglasslyn. Once again the reports were easy to read and you picked up on some safety concerns that we will be getting addressed before going through with the sale. We will continue to use your services in the future and recommend you to anyone that asks.

Mal completed a handover inspection for us recently for our new house build. As first time builders we had no idea what we were doing, Mal’s expertise and experience, filled us with confidence to ensure that nothing would be missed before we got the keys. The report was thorough and detailed, the pictures definitely helped. We were able to give the whole report to our site supervisor, who attended to the issues before we accepted the keys at handover.

-Jacob

Hi Mal thanks for your detailed reports and fast responses. Communication during the whole process was great, we appreciated being kept in the loop with how everything was progressing from the initial enquiry all the way to the follow up phone call to discuss some of those concerns we had.

Much appreciated

Highly recommend Mal’s services, he recently performed a pest and building inspection for us at Ashtonfield. We were getting close to the end of our cooling off period and we were very grateful that Mal was able to squeeze us in on such short notice. Mal emailed the reports to us the next day and they were easy to read with pictures showing some of the defects which was very useful.

Thanks Mal

5/5

Thank you for your pest and building reports, they were both very thorough and easy to understand. We appreciate your quick responses and good communication. It was really helpful to go through some of the issues over the phone with you, and have our questions answered.

Much appreciated

Hi Mal

Thank you so much for the report and your honesty. We have already decided not to go ahead with the purchase based on your report, we believe it will just be too costly to rectify all of the problems.

We will definitely use your service again when we find another property.

Kind regards

Mal recently completed an inspection on our new build at Chisholm. He inspected on the same day as our walkthrough with the site supervisor. He worked his way around the outside while we were inside and vice versa. He had the report back to us very quickly so we were able to send it through to our site supervisor to add to his list of fixes before handover. Experienced and professional. Great, thanks.

Hi Mal

Just wanted to say a quick thank you for your time and effort on the inspection you did at Ashtonfield for my partner and myself. Your report was very detailed and thorough and we really appreciated the pictures to explain the defects. We will recommend you to anyone that needs a pest and building inspection.

Thanks

Thanks so much for your pest and building inspection at the property in Gillieston Heights. It was such a relief knowing there were no major issues hiding beneath the surface, we appreciate you checking and reporting on a few of those specific concerns we had, it was definitely worth the peace of mind. We are pushing to get those couple of minor issues fixed that you raised before we settle.

Thanks again

Thankyou Mal for your recent inspection of a property, prompt service and information that has helped us in not making a huge mistake buying the property, will be recommending your services to others as you were recommended to us, thanks again.

Mal is a professional and makes time for his clients. I recently approached Mal about inspecting a property at Gillieston Heights, each time that I called he picked up which was very refreshing. If he couldn’t answer he called me back as soon as he could. Mal and his team organised the inspection quickly and the reports were sent the following business day, which made moving on the property much easier.

Thanks for your assistance Mal

Emma

5/5

I have used Mal’s services multiple times for pest and building inspections on properties I have been considering buying. Each time Mal picks up so many defects I would not have thought to look out for. The most recent property was at Thornton with minor defects and some safety issues found. Thankfully they are easy fixes and I can move forward with the purchase. Thanks Mal, your service is always prompt and efficient.

Cheers Ed

5/5

We recently hired Mal to do a pest and building inspection on a property for us in Metford and thank goodness we did as the house had termites and water damage which we couldn’t afford to fix. We are so glad that we booked the inspection before we put an offer on the house. We are now on the hunt for another house and will be using Mal next time as well.

Cheers

Mal recently inspected our new build in Cliftleigh. He attended at the same time as our final walkthrough with our site supervisor. He conducted his inspection separate to us and picked up on a couple of things we missed with our supervisor. The pictures in the report were very helpful to understand some of the defects more clearly. We had the report on the next business day, which we were able to forward to our site supervisor to address the additional issues that Mal picked up.

Thanks for squeezing us in Mal.

– Matthew and Lauren

We recently had Mal conduct a pest and building inspection on our rental property in Weston that we were considering purchasing. We are very grateful to Mal for the service he provided, he picked up some major problems which we could not afford to fix. We are now on the hunt for another property and will be using Mal again.

Mal inspected our newly built house in Chisholm, it was done on the same day as PCI. Mal picked up a list of defects that the building company’s inspector did not. We gave the builder the list of defects to fix before handover. Booking online was very simple and easy, Mal and his team organised everything. It was lovely not to have to chase things up ourselves like with many other businesses we have dealt with recently.

Thanks Mal

Ellen and Mark

We booked Mal in for a Pest and Building Inspection a few weeks ago for a property in Heddon Greta. He was booked out almost 2 weeks in advanced, we took that as a good sign of a quality inspector, so we were happy to wait. Mal was able to squeeze us in earlier after having a cancellation and we had the inspection completed and report received before our original inspection date. Very pleased with the efficiency and ease of the whole process, after filling in the online booking form, we didn’t have to do anything else except pay. Mal and his secretary organised everything. Thanks again Mal

5/5

We recently had Mal conduct a Handover inspection for our house in Chisholm. It happened on the same day as PCI, our supervisor said it wasn’t necessary but we wanted an unbiased opinion. We are thankful for the peace of mind that Mal provided. He found a few minor defects that the building company didn’t. We were lucky that there were no major issues but the cost was worth the relief we felt when we knew the house didn’t have any major problems. Mal had our best interests in mind and not the building company which is what we were looking for.

Thanks Mal

We recently had a pest and building inspection completed by Mal Wright on a house we were purchasing at Cliftleigh. Very happy with the service, Mal and his secretary were friendly and helpful. Mal took the time to go through the report with us. Lots of small things were picked up that we wouldn’t have even thought of. Thanks Mal. – Josh P.

5/5

We recently had a property at Largs inspected by Mal. When we called, he was very easy to deal with, he was booked up for the whole week but could get us in the following Monday. We heard he was really good so we were happy to wait. We got a call the next morning to say he had a cancellation and could get us in the following day. We were really grateful he’d taken the time to call us back and get us in earlier. After receiving the report we were amazed at how thorough and detailed it was. Very happy we didn’t go elsewhere.

Thanks Mal

-Maggie and Jeff

Hi Mal, just wanted to say a quick thank you for your fast and efficient service on our job at Ashtonfield. It was very easy to book online and we appreciated that we didn’t have to do anything after that. Thanks for setting it all up and getting the report to us the morning after.

Cheers Claire

We recently used Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections for a property in East Maitland that we were considering buying. Mal found a few minor faults and a couple of major ones and he explained everything in great detail. We were able to negotiate a lower price for the property and are now sitting pretty in our new home. Thanks Mal, your experience and expertise provided us with peace of mind when purchasing. – Terry

5/5

We recently moved into our new home in Cliftleigh. Being first time builders we were very anxious during the whole process, worrying about things being missed and trades not caring enough to make sure everything was right. When we were getting close to PCI (practical completion) a close friend suggested we get a private inspector to go through the property, as she had been burned through her own builders mistakes. We trusted our site supervisor, but thought it couldn’t hurt to get a second set of eyes look over the place. Very glad we did, Mal was able to pick up on a list of minor things the builders didn’t; doors not painted on the tops and bottoms, excess concrete on the alfresco area and rainwater tank sections of slab and a few more things which the builder fixed up for us before we moved in. Very happy with the end result, thanks for alleviating our nerves Mal. -Kiera and Pauline

5/5

My husband and I employed Mal’s services last month for a house in Raworth and we were pleasantly surprised at all the little details that were picked up during the pest and building inspection. The report was easy to read, Mal included pictures to help us see some of the issues and went the extra mile to inspect a few concerns we requested. If you are looking at purchasing a house I highly recommend you reach out to Mal and get an inspection done before buying.

Many thank Mary and Greg

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections provide a great service and are very quick at completing the inspection and report. Thanks for walking us through the problems Mal. We will be recommending Mal to our friends and family.

Mal recently inspected a property for us in Aberglasslyn , which we are so grateful for as it saved us a lot of money that we would have wasted trying to get the house to an acceptable condition. We will be using Mal’s services again when we find the right property.

We recently purchased a house in Thornton thanks to Mal’s comprehensive reports. He is fast, efficient, honest and tells you how it is. We booked inspection at the start of the week, had the inspection completed, reports given and we were ready to put an offer in by the start of the weekend.

Cheers Mick

Highly recommend a pest and building inspection from Mal Wright. It was our first time buying a house and we were worried about a few things so we called Mal to inspect the house and property at Bolwarra Heights. We received 2 reports the day after inspection and Mal called us and talked us through the issues he found, which was very very helpful. Will recommend Mal to anyone buying a house!!!!!!

– Kristy and Brent

This is our 2nd time using Mal for a pest and building inspection, he is very thorough and has a great attention to detail. He picked up defects that I certainly wouldn’t have even noticed. Thanks for calling us to go through everything. We ended up buying the property at Raymond Terrace.

Many thanks Sophie

We recently had Mal inspect a property for us in Metford. We used the online booking form which was super easy and simple to use, inspection was booked for 2 days later and we didn’t have to do anything else. Mal and his staff organised everything and we got the report back the day after inspection, which was amazing.

Thanks David

Mal has completed 3 separate Pest and Building Inspections for me on different properties.

The first property had termite damage that hadn’t been disclosed by the agent or vendor and we were so grateful we’d had Mal do an inspection and not trusted the agency supplied reports.

The second property everything was going well (or so we thought) until the agent let us know the day after we’d received Mal’s reports that someone else had made a higher offer and signed that day.

Third time lucky… (We were feeling a bit jinxed at this stage). Inspection completed. Reports received. Offer accepted! Phew.

Mal’s professionalism has not wavered during this entire period. He has provided us with a lot of advice encouraging us to stay positive. I must also say that his reports were of an extremely high standard which we were able to easily read and interpret.

If you’re looking at purchasing property my recommendation would be to get Mal out to complete your pre-purchase inspections. It is worth every cent.

 

5/5

I recently purchased a townhouse property in Newcastle and needed a Pest and Building Inspection completed. A family friend had recommended Mal Wright but when I mentioned an inspection to the agent, he said they liked to use someone different. I was a little confused so asked my friend for more information why they used Mal. My friend had almost the same experience – the agent said not to use Mal but he still went ahead and used him as he wanted someone impartial. I went ahead and booked with Mal and once I had received my reports and read through them I understood why the agent wanted to use their own inspector. There were so many defects! Some were only minor but a lot of them the agent had just brushed off as nothing to worry about! It really made me step back and question whether I wanted to go ahead with the purchase. Mal’s help and expertise were great and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking at property.

5/5

After shopping around for the best price for a Pest and Building Inspection, we chose Mal Wright. He wasn’t the cheapest. But after speaking with a few inspectors, he knew his stuff. He listened to my questions on the phone (others just didn’t have time or just weren’t bothered). His secretary took all the details and booked everything in for us & gave us a confirmation date of later that week (yes, he was busy, but that’s another good sign). The reports arrived via email as promised the day after the inspection. I found them easy enough to read and only had a couple of questions in regards to termite treatments which Mal was more than happy to go over on the phone with me. I would definitely use Mal’s services again – he was a great help.

5/5

I recently booked Pre-Purchase inspections online with Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections. Being able to book online was handy due to my work hours and the online forms were easy to follow. I’d been given a couple of inspectors numbers but Mal’s website and reviews were much better than others I had read. I was able to get my inspection completed a few days later and asked if I could meet Mal at the property afterwards (I wasn’t sure of the rules due to COVID-19). Mal was happy for me to meet him at the house at a certain time and he was then able to give me a quick run-through of some of the problems he’d found. I still received my reports the next day via email and they have been great to read through and learn what I will need to tend to once I move in. Mal’s service went above and beyond in my opinion and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again and refer his business to others.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building did inspections at a property in Newcastle I was selling at auction. He came about a week prior to the day of the auction so we could have the reports on the day to present to potential buyers. This also allowed us to get a quick sale as the purchasers then didn’t have to wait to get Pest and Building inspections done themselves. I have previously used Mal’s expertise on different properties I’ve looked at and he always seemed to find things that a lot of other inspectors would oversee or just not include in their reports. I will continue to use Mal Wright and recommend his business.

5/5

We had recently just finished building a new house in Farley (out towards Rutherford) and needed an independent Handover Inspection completed. We googled a few inspectors but Mal Wright’s reviews were by far the best. He made arrangements to meet the building supervisor at the property to do the inspection and we got our reports the next day. It was a big report. Bigger than I had expected. Sure, I’d had concerns about a couple of things but Mal had picked up on so many defects! I was a little gobsmacked that the builder actually thought they could get away with just ‘ignoring’ issues and we would move in. I’m so glad I had Mal come and do the inspection. We are now waiting to have meetings with the building company and supervisor to get everything remedied. Mal has certainly done an excellent job and even though we now have to wait a bit longer until we move in, I’d do it all over again. You pay so much money building a new house – you’d expect it to be up to standard before you moved in!

5/5

Mal Wright came highly recommended to us by a work colleague who used to work in Real Estate. She said he had a reputation with the agents because he was ‘too good’ at finding problems in properties. This was confirmed when I told the agent I was getting Pest & Building inspections done by Mal. You could tell he was a little nervous. Mal’s reports were emailed through to us the day after he did our inspection. Nothing major – which was good. There were a few minor defects which we asked the vendor to repair. Mal also gave us a call the day after we had received our reports to make sure we understood everything – great customer service! We will also be highly recommending Mal Wright.

5/5

Being first home buyers was so daunting for us – so many things to consider. Do we build? Do we buy new? Do we need a conveyancer? There were sooo many things. We had done our finance through a broker and were in the process of looking at houses when we found a beautiful property in Fletcher. The broker had told us to get Pre-Purchase Pest and Building Inspections done and recommended 2 different people. Mal Wright was one of them. We actually phoned Mal first just to see what his prices were and ended up booking him in after speaking with the other person (they didn’t seem to be as knowledgeable). Mal’s office contacted the Real Estate and gained access to the inspection for us which was one less thing I needed to worry about. Once he’d done the inspection he gave us a call – just for my own reassurance really. Our reports were emailed out the next day. I was dreading having to sit down and bore myself to death reading about something I didn’t understand but surprisingly, they were very easy to read! We made sure we passed on our thanks to our Broker for his suggestion and told him to keep referring Mal! Mal was a great help and made buying our first home a little less stressful. Thank you.

5/5

Thank you for your help with my recent property purchase in Thornton. Your reports were very informative and the photos were great in identifying where the issue was. I feel quite privileged that I was able to engage your services after you were recommended by a few people I spoke with who said you were ‘the best’. I will refer your services to anyone I know that needs inspections completed.

5/5

I had phoned Mal Wright to book in a Pest and Building Inspection on the recommendation from a friend who just raved about him. He was booked out for 4 days in advance but I was happy to wait since he was so highly recommended. Mal’s office must have called the Real Estate agent not long after I spoke with them because the agent phoned me. He told me that I needed to have the inspections done straight away as there were other interested buyers and that the reports that had been supplied should have been sufficient. Well, I wasn’t happy with the agent’s attitude so I told him I was happy to wait to use Mal. I had read the other reports but our conveyancer agreed that because they weren’t in our names they weren’t legally ‘our’ documents.

Mal gave me a call as soon as he’d finished the inspection just to quickly go over a couple of things I needed to be aware of. He emailed the full reports out the following day. They were fabulous. They covered every aspect of the property. He even picked up on little things like the garden tap out the front having no support. Much more detailed than the other reports I had seen.

We did go ahead and purchase the property although the real estate agent wasn’t happy we went back and negotiated the price with the report in hand.

I too would highly recommend Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections. If you want someone who is thorough and does the right thing by the purchaser (not the agent or vendor) then he’s your man.

5/5

I must say, Mal Wright helped me a lot recently with my first home purchase. My conveyancer recommended him & another person but said Mal was better – if he was available! That made me think he must be good if he’s usually booked out! When I phoned, he had 1 spot left for the week so I jumped on it. The staff took all my details, and that was that! Once I’d received the reports and had a read through them, I gave Mal a call just to go over a couple of things I was unsure about. He was patient and even called me a week later to see how I went. If you’re a first home buyer and need someone professional, courteous and knowledgeable – Mal’s your go-to!

5/5

Mal was a great help during a recent property purchase. He had come and inspected our house which was on the market for a potential buyer and we had a chat whilst he was there, and he left me his business card. My wife & I had been looking for a new property but we hadn’t settled on one straight away. We eventually found a house and I still had Mal’s card on me so gave him a call to book Pest and Building Inspections. I was impressed with how knowledgeable he was. His office staff were efficient and had our inspection booked in for that week. The reports were emailed the following day and they were great. Colour photos and descriptions of what and where the problem was. Much more detailed than reports I’ve seen in the past. I’m glad I gave him a call (and his price was pretty great too!)

5/5

I work in the industry and was purchasing a substantial sized property. I wanted to make an informed decision so decided to have 2 inspections done by separate companies. Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections was one of them, and I used another company that offered a cheaper price.

Mal’s reports were by far the better choice. They were very detailed and he had picked up on numerous items that needed rectifications where the other inspector had not noted them at all. In comparison, Mal’s Building report was around 56 pages and the other inspector’s was only about 30 pages.

Mal had given me time on the phone to discuss different items with him as well, whereas when I called the other inspector, he was vague with details.

I know who I will be using in the future and who I will be recommending to my clients.

 

 

 

5/5

I was interested in a property out at Maitland. The Real Estate agent disclosed that it had previous termite damage but ‘nothing to worry about’ as it had all been fixed. Well, I was a little worried and wanted to know how much there actually was. Mal Wright was recommended to me by a builder friend as ‘the best’ so I phoned and booked in a Pest and Building Inspection with him. Mal was able to complete the inspection the same week and once he’d finished he gave me a quick call to discuss a couple of things.

First of all, the termite damage that had been ‘fixed’ was a lot more extensive than I was made to believe. And secondly, even after having termites, the owners hadn’t kept up with the termite treatments. Wow. I couldn’t believe it. Mal had certainly picked up a few things that needed serious consideration. I’m glad I had given him a call and decided to not listen to the Agent. Mal has literally saved me thousands of dollars and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again or recommend him to fellow home buyers.

5/5

We went with our gut and booked a Pest and Building Inspection with Mal Wright – going against what the Real Estate agent recommended. They had provided reports, but we just didn’t feel comfortable relying on them. Thank god we didn’t use them. Mal picked up so many defects that were non-existent in the agent supplied reports. Some were just minor things but there were a couple of things that should have definitely been picked up! Mal’s reports were also very detailed. The building report was around 35 pages long compared to 15 pages in the agent supplied one. They were like chalk and cheese. We didn’t end up buying the house and are still looking. We have Mal’s number saved in my phone and will be calling him the minute we find another property.

5/5

We recently had a Pest and Building Inspection completed with Mal in Maitland. He was very informative over the phone when I had a few questions and when we received our reports we were very pleased we had used Mal to do these inspections. He had picked up several defects that we didn’t realise were there as well as termite damage (no live ones fortunately). It has really made us take a step back and think about what our next move will be. We would highly recommend using Mal to complete your inspections as he could save you thousands.

5/5

We contacted Mal Wright to get our house inspected recently. We weren’t selling, but had decided it was about time we got repairs ‘up to date’ while we had so much time on our hands (thanks COVID-19). Mal came out and did the inspection. He was right on time and spent around 1.5hrs taking notes and photos of different things. It was hard to not follow him around everywhere and ask questions! He emailed the report out to us the following day. It was great to have everything itemised and we could then prioritise what needed to be fixed and tick it all off as we went! So I now have a list of things for my husband to fix (he’s so happy lol). He won’t be bored anytime soon.

5/5

Thank you for your help recently with my Pest and Building Inspection reports. Your time on the phone and information you gave me was invaluable. It’s wonderful to know that there are businesses still willing to help their customers after the transaction has been completed. If I ever needed another inspection done I would definitely be giving Mal Wright a call. He came highly recommended to me, so I will be paying it forward as well.

I met Mal a couple of years ago when he did a Pest and Building Inspection on a house I was renting and the owners were selling. He spent quite a bit of time going through the house, taking photos, writing stuff down and at the time I thought ‘wow, what a waste of my time’ (having to be at home to let him in). That was until I was looking at buying. Mal had left me a business card that day and I’d shoved it in a kitchen drawer and forgotten about it. I rummaged around for maybe 10 minutes and found it! I gave him a call to see if he was still doing inspections and he was! Being a first home buyer, I was a bit nervous with the whole process but Mal explained what happened and so I booked it in. The reports were surprisingly easy to read and they’d emailed them to my Conveyancer as well. I called an spoke to Mal and covered a couple of things that I didn’t understand and he totally put my mind at ease. He was so helpful and genuine. I’d definitely use his business again – and so should everyone else!

I phoned Mal Wright after googling his business and seeing the reviews he had gotten. I asked him a couple of questions in regards to the property and he was very professional so I booked in a Pest and Building Inspection for a home in Corlette. His office made the arrangements with the Real Estate to complete the inspection that week. I had a couple of specific items I wanted him to double-check while he was at the house so I sent him an email with them listed. The reports came via email the day after the inspection. My requested items were covered, along with other things I had not noticed. The reports were fabulous – very in-depth and informative. He’s certainly worth more money! I am currently in negotiations but certain of a positive outcome thanks to Mal’s reports. Thanks for your help and we will pass on your details to anyone we know who needs inspections.

I took advantage of Mal’s lower prices during the COVID-19 pandemic and I was not disappointed. I had pre-purchase Pest and Building Inspections done at a property in Aberglasslyn. I had wanted to meet Mal at the property but due to the restrictions in place I wasn’t allowed to so Mal offered to call me once the inspection was completed and go over anything he thought was of concern. The reports were of a very high standard and covered everything about the house. We opted to not have printed copies sent out via the post as well just in case anything spread via the mail. Mal was very professional and he is definitely worth more money! I can highly recommend him and would use him again in a heartbeat.

5/5

I was having a lot of trouble finding someone to complete a Pest and Building Inspection for me due to the Coronavirus pandemic. A lot of businesses weren’t operating. I was told to call Mal Wright, who was still performing inspections in line with current restrictions. I was able to book my inspection in during that week and he still had the reports out to me the next day. Thank you Mal for all your help. Stay safe!

5/5

Mal Wright does annual Pest inspection reports for me each year on my investment properties I have in Newcastle. His reports are always emailed out to me the day after the inspection and he has always given my tenants ample notice. I will continue to use Mal as he is one of the best inspectors around.

5/5

We recently had Mal complete a Pest and Building Inspection for us on a property at the Central Coast. We hadn’t realised he traveled to the area but we were pleasantly surprised to find out he did when we gave him a call for a recommendation. We had used Mal for the last property inspections we had done in Newcastle. As usual, Mal’s reports were fabulous and we were thankful he completed them as we know how much time and effort he puts into them. We will continue to recommend Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections.

5/5

Mal completed an inspection at our property in Kotara earlier this week as we are planning on selling (soon, hopefully) and we wanted to see what we needed to repair before putting our house on the market. The whole booking online process was very easy and Mal’s office phoned to confirm the day and time of the inspection. Mal showed up on time and he was very polite. He started the outside of the property first and then before coming inside he made sure he used hand sanitiser. Due to the amount of people concerned about the Covid19 virus pandemic at the moment I thought this was very reassuring since he was coming into our home. He also took off his shoes lol.

Our reports were emailed out the following day and pretty much as we expected. It was great to have them handy (and the printed copy we received) so we could then prioritise what needed to be done and tick it off our list as we went! We will be hanging onto Mal’s number as when we have sold our property we will be calling him to do inspections if/when we buy again.

5/5

I was lucky enough to get my Pest and Building Inspection done on the same day I booked online due to someone else canceling their inspection. I was very surprised at how quickly they responded to my request. So I had my reports emailed within 24 hours, really. Fabulous turn around! The reports were also quite detailed so they weren’t pumped out generically. I can highly recommend Mal’s business and will be gladly letting friends and family know.

5/5

I have had used Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections previously for a Pre-Purchase inspection but needed to get a Handover inspection completed on a home I was building in Huntlee. He’d done such a marvellous job last time, I had no hesitation in using his business again. The office staff booked everything in with the builder and all I had to do was email Mal a copy of the plans. I also included a note of a couple of things I wanted him to check while he was there. Mal had the report emailed to me the day after he did the inspection and, as I expected, it was very detailed. He had included the items I’d asked him to check but also picked up a lot of other minor problems. It was great to get the printed copy in the mail as I used it when I met with the builder to go over everything that needed amending.

I’d highly recommend Mal for any of your inspection needs.

5/5

Mal and his staff were great to deal with when I booked a Pest and Building Inspection in Heddon Greta recently. They made all the arrangements and all I needed to do was wait for the reports. I received them the day after the inspection and found them easy to go through and understand. I did have a couple of questions, so I phoned Mal who was happy to go over things on the phone. I haven’t used an inspector before so found that all their help and advice made things run smoother and I wasn’t as stressed. I’d highly recommend Mal Wright for any inspections that you need completed.

5/5

I have previously used Mal’s services for a Handover inspection but recently called him to complete a Pest and Building inspection on an investment property I was buying in Jesmond. His work ethic, knowledge and experience have been very helpful in this case as we needed to inspect the property with access from 4 different occupants. Our Conveyancer was also impressed that we were able to complete the inspection on one day. Mal’s reports were thorough and what I expected since using his business before. If you have any inspection needs, Mal is the guy to call.

5/5

Thanks for your help with our recent purchase in Rutherford. Your Pest and Building reports were of a very high standard and we were impressed at how detailed they were. Your reports helped us re-negotiate a price with the vendors and has saved us a few thousand dollars. If we are ever in the market for another property, we will be giving you a call.

5/5

Thanks for your prompt service getting the Pest and Building Reports out to us for the property at Bolwarra Heights. 24hr turn around is quite impressive and the reports we received were very detailed. You can see a lot of effort went into them. Your time on the phone was equally as valuable. Your knowledge and advice has assisted us immensely. We will happily pass on your details to anyone who needs these type of inspections done.

5/5

Truly excellent reports, would recommend you to anyone needing an inspection and will call on your services in the future if we ever need them.

5/5

Mal did Pest and Building Inspections for us at a property in East Maitland. We had made arrangements through the Real Estate to meet Mal at the property and let us know of any problems. He spent around an hour of his time with us explaining a few things and chatting before finishing our inspection. We still received our reports the following day and he even phoned us to check we understood it all. His attention to detail was fantastic and we can’t recommend him highly enough.

5/5

Hi Mal,

Thank you for your assistance last week with our Pest and Building Inspections. Being a first home buyer, your service has made this experience a lot less stressful. The fact that you have taken time out of your day to talk over the phone and offer advice and help has been excellent. We will gladly pass on your details to any other friends/family/colleagues who also need inspections. You have helped us immensely. Thanks again.

5/5

Mal came and did a Handover Inspection for us on a new build in Thornton. We had a few concerns about brickwork and painting which we wanted checked at the time of the inspection. Mal’s office made all the arrangements with the building site supervisor to go there and do the inspection. Our report arrived in a timely fashion but also confirmed that the brickwork was not up to standards, lots of painting needed to be re-done and there were other issues that needed to be addressed. We made an appointment to speak with the builder and took the report with us to back us up. We are currently waiting for things to be rectified by the builder and will be getting Mal back out to re-inspect if it doesn’t look up to scratch. In our opinion, getting the independent inspection done was such a great relief as we were able to go ahead and get the problems rectified before moving into the property.

5/5

I had Pest and Building Inspections done by Mal Wright at a house in Kurri Kurri. He had come highly recommended by a friend of ours who had used his services when buying in Gillieston Heights. Mal was great on the phone when I called and he answered a few of the questions I had. Once I had booked in the inspection, I sent an email outlining a couple of things I was concerned about so he could double-check them whilst he was there. I got the reports the day after my inspection and Mal had commented on the things I had emailed about as well as picked up on a number of other things. I liked how he had included photos of areas where problems were found as well. It made understanding it a lot easier. Mal followed up with a phone call the day after I had received my reports too – great customer service in my opinion. I’d definitely use his business again and have already passed on his number to a colleague.

5/5

I was looking at a property in Aberglasslyn and the Real Estate agent recommended a Pest and Building inspector. Upon googling the inspector’s name and seeing the bad reviews I quickly established that I wasn’t going to use them. I came across Mal Wright’s reviews which were far more positive so I checked out his website. I ended up doing an online booking right then and there. Mal’s office received the booking and phoned the Real Estate to book it all in. Once the agent found out I wasn’t using ‘his’ inspector, he didn’t seem very happy. The inspection went ahead and I has the reports emailed to me the next day. Mal had found a few minor defects, which were itemised in the report with photos, but he also found some previous termite damage which had not been disclosed by the agent. Needless to say, we weren’t impressed and let our feelings known to the agent as well. We are still looking for another property and we will definitely be using Mal Wright again.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections completed my pre-purchase inspections at a property in Maitland that we were buying as an investment. I have used inspectors before but Mal was very client-focused. He emphasised that he works for his clients, not anyone else, which made me feel comfortable asking difficult questions that I wouldn’t get a straight answer from a Real Estate Agent. The reports I received were informative yet easy to read. The addition of photographs made identifying defects simple. If I am to buy another property, I will be using Mal again. I have his details saved in my phone already.

5/5

I had previously used Mal Wright to do a Pest and Building Inspection on my home in Metford when I bought it, but I was now moving and looking at other properties in Port Stephens. I had found a lovely little place in Corlette and phoned Mal to book inspections in once again. Like last time, he was very professional, the reports came out via email and in the post and they were really easy to read (which made my day). My conveyancer also mentioned how great they were. There were only minor issues with the property I was looking at so I went ahead and bought it! Ever so grateful for Mal’s assistance and expertise once again.

5/5

I made so many calls whilst ‘shopping around’ for a good Pest and Building Inspector. Some of them didn’t have the time or just didn’t care. When I phoned Mal Wright, he took the time to speak with me even though he was on a job. He answered my questions and when I asked to book in the inspection, he said he would get someone to call me back to get my details. Well, his office phoned almost straight away! I was surprised. They took all the information they needed and booked everything in so I didn’t have to chase the Real Estate and arrange a suitable time. The day after the inspection, I received the reports via email. Very informative, had photographs and suggested solutions for some of the defects. I was pretty happy. There were a couple of things I didn’t understand but phoned Mal and he again took the time to explain things. He offers such a great service and I would happily recommend him to anyone.

5/5

I had been looking at houses for a while before I found one in Bolwarra Heights I wanted to move forward with. My Conveyancer had given me a couple of recommendations so I did a bit of research on both before booking one in. Mal had great testimonials on both his website and through Google so I opted to book an inspection online. His secretary followed up with me the next morning and confirmed the inspection. They had arranged to get into the property through the Real Estate and meet the agent there on the day. My reports were very good. Emailed to me the day after the inspection, they had colour photos and were very detailed and described any issues and suggested how to remedy the problem.

I would recommend Mal and his business, he was very thorough and when speaking with him on the phone, he was a wealth of information. I’d definitely book with him again if the need arises.

5/5

Mal Wright has completed 4 inspections for me. His reporting style has been excellent and has saved me from buying a couple of dud houses.

Buying a house has been a stressful time especially since I found myself ‘competing’ with other people for the same property at one stage. Having Mal do the Pest and Building Inspections has saved my sanity a little bit and saved me thousands in money I would have had to spend on repairs.

I had my last reports emailed earlier in the week and I’m onto a winner with this one. The reports confirmed everything was OK and I have had my offer accepted.

I would highly recommend having Pest and Building Inspections done before buying anything and can highly recommend Mal’s business.

5/5

I needed an inspection done before Christmas and wasn’t having much luck finding an inspector who wasn’t booked up. I had phoned Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections and spoken with Mal, but he also said he was booked out but referred me to a couple of other inspectors. After phoning both of them and finding out they were also busy, I called Mal again to see if he had any other suggestions. He offered to do my inspection early on a Sunday (his only day off). I was relieved to say the least. His office staff took over and booked everything in, Mal completed the inspection and got it out to me the next day. Amazing. The reports were very detailed. He had come highly recommended from a colleague and I’m glad he could fit my inspection in.

5/5

I initially phoned Mal for some advice on who I should get for a Pest Treatment as he’d previously done Pest Inspections for us at our rental property in Medowie and got chatting about one of my other properties that I was maybe going to sell. He mentioned that he did Vendor Reports which were basically a Pest and Building Inspection for people wanting to sell so they could either have the report there ready for potential purchasers or use it as a guide to what needed fixing before selling. I thought about this for a couple of weeks and decided to book an inspection in, just to see what I needed to have done ready to sell. As I expected, Mal’s reports were thorough and when I spoke to him on the phone he had some great advice and insight on what I should prioritise. We will wait until our current tenants move out and then take the time to fix the issues and put it on the market. Mal was a great help and I would recommend his business to anyone.

5/5

It was coming up to Christmas quickly and we needed (wanted) to have everything signed off on a house we were buying before everyone went on holidays. We had heard Mal Wright was a very good & thorough Pest and Building inspector through a couple of friends so we gave him a call. Of course, everyone else wanted their inspections done before the Christmas break too so he was very busy but he squeezed ours in on a weekend just before his office closed for holidays. We had the reports emailed to us on the Monday morning and saw our Conveyancer that afternoon. Luckily there were no major issues with the property and we could proceed as planned. We can highly recommend Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections as we personally know he works hard for his clients and goes above and beyond. Thanks Mal.

5/5

Mal was a great wealth of information when we recently had a Handover Inspection completed with him. Our new build was ‘ready’ to move into according to the builder but we found there were a few things we weren’t happy about. So we contacted Mal after he was recommended by one of our new neighbours who had used him. We received our report from Mal and there were more than a few things that needed to be remedied. We were grateful we had Mal’s help as we are now getting things fixed by the builder properly. We would highly recommend his business to anyone building a new home.

5/5

Mal completed Pest and Building Inspections for me some years ago now when I was buying in Nelson Bay and now my son is about to buy his own place in Port Stephens so Mal is doing his inspections too. So wonderful to find a familiar business that is still operating all these years later and offering the same great service with even more experience. We look forward to seeing the reports and talking to you about them.

5/5

We were supplied with Pest and Building Reports for a property by the Agent that was selling it in Maitland. We read through it and it all seemed ok, but I just didn’t like the fact that the Real Estate had used someone they recommended. Were they reputable? Or did they just write up a report so the house would sell? I asked a couple of friends who they used and they said Mal Wright was the best, so I gave him a call to see what he thought.

Upon finding out that the reports would not be legally binding if anything was wrong because they weren’t in our names, I booked Mal in to do inspections and produce new reports.

The reports were like chalk and cheese. Mal had picked up on a lot more problems with the house than the original reports. It was still a great house, though. It just needed a bit more work to bring it up to where we would like it.

We spoke with the Real Estate and they said the vendors were open to offers, which was great.

So in the end, we are more than happy with our inspector, Mal, and the reports he provided us. We will be passing on his details on to everyone.

 

5/5

Thank you for the inspection and reports on the property at Morpeth. We have thoroughly read the reports and armed ourselves with a bit more information and are meeting with the Real Estate Agent this afternoon to negotiate a better price. Your help and wealth of information has helped us to no end. We really love the property and can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds.

5/5

Mal Wright’s reports gave us a great insight into how much work we needed to do before we sold my mother’s home in Tenambit. Some things were more urgent than others so we used the reports as a guideline, ticking things off as we went. When we were ready to sell, he came back and ‘updated’ the reports ready for the purchasers to read. Mal was very helpful and the house sold within a week of being on the market. Thanks for everything.

5/5

It was great to know we had Mal Wright completing our Pest and Building Inspections. We had heard from so many people that he was THE inspector to get. We couldn’t be happier. His reports were, as promised, very thorough, easy to read and we used them to negotiate a better price on the property we were looking at in Branxton. We have already told family and friends to pass on his details!

5/5

I asked to meet Mal at the house when he was doing my Pest and Building Inspections and he was more than accommodating. I had a few things I wanted his opinion on and would rather be there to point them out. He was polite and very helpful with ideas and information that I needed to find out from Council. Overall, my experience with his business was very positive and I have already shared his details with people who have asked for recommendations on Facebook.

5/5

There was a great little house I wanted to buy in Maitland. My Conveyancer suggested I get Mal Wright to do the pre-purchase inspections as he was very thorough. I checked out his website and booked it online as it was late at night by the time I’d gotten around to looking at it after work. The next day his office phoned me to confirm and let me know their next availability. It was few days away, but if he wasn’t busy I’d probably be wondering why. They went ahead and arranged to go to the house with the Real Estate agent. My reports were very good – outlining all the defects as well as giving suggestions on what needed to be done to fix the problem. He was indeed very thorough as my Conveyancer said. I was very happy with everything and wouldn’t hesitate to pass on Mal’s details.

5/5

I was in the midst of buying a new house in Maryland and needed a Pest and Building Inspection completed. I phoned around a few inspectors but they didn’t answer, were going to call me back and one was too busy. Mal Wright took my call while he was doing an inspection and said he would get his secretary to call me back. I hung up thinking I wouldn’t hear back but she phoned me back literally a minute later! She took all the details and was going to arrange the inspection with the Real Estate. All booked in and paid, all I had to do was wait for my reports to be emailed. Once I had them and read through them I was glad I’d gotten onto Mal as he had picked up on quite a few things that needed attention. I’m glad I had him doing my inspections and would recommend his business to anyone.

5/5

My Pest and Building Inspection reports were completed by Mal Wright and I received them, as promised, the day after my inspection. I was so thankful for this as my cooling off period had almost ended and I needed to have them done asap. The reports were very informative and Mal also spent some time on the phone to me explaining a couple of things. I can highly recommend his business, as the service he offers is outstanding.

5/5

We had Mal complete inspections at our home when we were selling, and again when we purchased a new property.

Both times he was courteous, professional and went above and beyond – fitting our inspection in on a weekend due to a busy schedule on our behalf.

The reports were great and had colour photos included to help identify problem areas.

Our vendor report was a massive hit with potential buyers and they all commented that it was an excellent idea. We believe our property sold a lot faster due to the fact that we had done the inspections already and Mal was a reputable inspector.

We would highly recommend using Mal for any of your inspection needs, and we will certainly use him again if the need arises.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections conducted a Handover Inspection on our new home in Tenambit.

We had ‘ummed and ahhed’ about getting an independent inspection done. The builder said it wasn’t necessary (of course) and others we had asked just didn’t know. We were speaking with our broker about it and he said to definitely get one done and gave us a few names. Mal’s name also came up in our google search as well as in a Facebook question we posted online.

We booked online, giving the supervisor details and Mal’s staff followed up and made sure they could get in to look through the house. We didn’t attend the property at the same time, so just waited to receive our report via email the following day.

The report was fairly straight forward. Minor defects, major defects, safety issues, inside and outside. From what our builder told us, there wasn’t a lot to be fixed. But the report said otherwise. There were quite a few issues so we immediately gave the building company a call and arranged a meeting at the house.

Mal’s report actually saved us money because if we didn’t have these done, we would have had problems down the track and then would have been chasing the company to fix them after we had moved in. If you’re building a new home, we’d highly recommend you get Handover inspection done. And give Mal Wright a call.

5/5

We used Mal Wright 18 years ago for a Building Inspection at Salamander Bay and all these years later, here we are using him again for our new home at Corlette. Someone that has been in business all this time has only gained knowledge so we had no hesitation in using Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections and found that the reports were extremely thorough and we will continue to use him in the future.

5/5

Mal Wright was recommended to us by our Real Estate agent but we had heard from different people not to use the inspector referred by your agent. We’d also heard that Mal was very good. We decided to ‘ring around’ a few inspectors and see how their phone manner was. A couple of them weren’t very informative when we asked different questions and another one said he’d call us back but didn’t. Mal was very comfortable answering our questions and said he would get his secretary to call us to get all the details. She called within 5 minutes of us hanging up from Mal! Outstanding! She took all our details, followed up with the Real Estate and we didn’t have to lift a finger. Our reports were emailed the following day after the inspection and we found them to be very informative. Mal called us to make sure we understood everything and strongly recommended we get a Pest treatment done on the property asap (something the real estate said we didn’t need to worry about). We are glad we used Mal’s services and would use him again if we needed to.

5/5

Thanks to Mal from Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections for the prompt inspection and reports provided on a property in Metford. We were in a ‘race to the finish line’ to get inspections done and an offer accepted before another potential buyer came in. Mal offered to complete the inspections on a weekend so we would have them first thing Monday morning. He also gave us a call after he had completed the inspection to keep us updated. We are very thankful that he went above and beyond and would recommend him to everyone.

5/5

Thank you for completing Pest and Building Inspections on a property at Rutherford for us. We hadn’t expected there would be a lot for you to report on as it was just under 10yrs old, but your reports were still very informative and gave us a general scope of what will need to be done prior to us moving in. We would highly recommend your services after having such a positive experience.

5/5

Mal completed inspections for me several years ago when I bought a unit in New Lambton. I recently found the copy of the reports when I was looking at some things I had in storage. I was getting my unit ready to sell, but needed to have inspections done at a new place I was looking at moving to in Cameron Park. I googled Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections, found the website and made an online booking. Mal’s staff took care of contacting the Real Estate and I was very pleased when I found out my inspection would be completed and I would have the reports before the week was out. The reports were again very informative and the colour photos helped identify areas of concern. If I ever need another inspection completed, I’ll be using Mal Wright again.

5/5

The Meth Testing was great! Positive result was surprising. We recently had a Pre-Purchase Pest and Building Inspection done in Metford and filled in the online booking form at the Mal Wright website to include Rapid Meth Testing so we could get an immediate idea of if the house was contaminated with Methamphetamines from previous tenants. The results, to our surprise, came back positive as the house looked relatively well maintained but we decided not to go ahead with the purchase. We will be using Mal Wright when we find another property.

5/5

We had heard of Mal Wright through many different people when we asked around for a property we were looking at purchasing in Newcastle including our Conveyancer, work colleagues and neighbours. When we told the Agent we were using Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections, they quivered and said ‘he’s too thorough’ and asked if we would use someone else, which made us want to use him even more. Upon receiving his reports he excelled and the information allowed us to re-negotiate on the property which saved us thousands of dollars. Why use anyone else when you can use No. 1 – Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections.

5/5

We contacted Mal Wright Pest & Building Inspections in regards to doing an inspection on our new house at Thornton. Once we made contact with them, it was effortless from start to finish. I give him 20/5 stars for his service, reporting and presentation of reports. Mal Wright Pest & Building Inspections goes well and above any other inspector and for such a large purchase, the information in the reports was worth every cent.

5/5

We purchased a house through Charlie Lund 4 years ago at Rutherford and have now purchased another house at Aberglasslyn through a different local Real Estate Agent. We continued to use Mal Wright Pet and Building Inspections as we found him brilliant and will continue to use him. The reports were very thorough and easy to understand and Mal was always easy to contact to discuss the defects found. I highly recommend his company.

5/5

The first property we ever bought, the inspector was hopeless. Didn’t pick up a lot of problems with the house and we had to get a second ‘proper’ inspection done. This time around when buying, we took our time and did research on inspectors before booking anyone. Mal’s name came up in a few different conversations we had with people as well as recommendations from strangers on Facebook. We liked his website and booked our inspections online. We read through the reports the day after the inspection and we were so impressed. They covered absolutely everything from the front door to the shed in the back yard. If anyone asks us in the future, we will gladly give out Mal’s details.

5/5

Mal completed a Building Inspection for me on a unit I was keen on purchasing in Nelson Bay. He has quite a good reputation in the Bay as a great inspector. I had spoken to friends and family who all said he was very thorough. The report was emailed through to me very promptly and also sent to my Conveyancer. I understood all the wording in the report but Mal also gave me a call to see if I had any questions. I’d highly recommend his business.

5/5

Being a first-home buyer is such a nerve-wracking experience but knowing that the home you’re buying is structurally sound is so important. I didn’t hesitate to book Pest and Building Inspections in when my Conveyancer suggested it. I had heard about Mal Wright being a very good inspector through a few different people and had done my research early on when I knew I was planning on buying a house. Mal’s staff took my details and booked everything in which also helped with my stress levels! It was also very helpful to be able to speak with Mal over the phone about things once I’d read the reports. I’d happily recommend Mal to anyone buying property.

5/5

Thanks for your assistance with my recent Pest and Building Inspection, Mal. Your reports were received in a timely manner and easy for me to read and understand. I can now move ahead with my purchase knowing what needs to be rectified. I will pass your details on to anyone who is in need of a great inspector.

5/5

I was very happy with the quality of the Pest and Building reports provided by Mal Wright. I have used other inspectors before but Mal’s reports were by far the best I have seen. Comprehensive but easy to understand and they covered everything I needed to know about the property. If I need any more inspections, I will definitely be giving Mal Wright a call.

5/5

Mal Wright was extremely thorough and took a lot of care to check every square inch of the property I was buying in Maryland. He was very helpful and friendly and was happy to explain what he was looking for and pointing out issues that he found. The final reports were very well presented, broken down into sections and detailed with recommendations of how to best address everything that was found. I have and would continue to recommend him to friends and family who have also been equally happy with his work.

5/5

We were building a new house in Metford and after months & months of waiting we finally got to the stage where we could walk through with the builder and go over things that needed fixing. We were really happy that there wasn’t much that needed amending but then spoke with some friends who had also built recently and they told us to have an independent Handover inspection done. They’d had so many issues after they moved in and said they wished they’d had one done. Mal’s name came up in the conversation so we gave him a call to see what was involved. It was pretty straight forward and his staff booked it all in for us as well as getting access from the site supervisor. We also attended on the same day but went through with the builder. The reports were emailed to us the following day and wow. The amount of problems he picked up that the builder had not included was a lot greater than I had expected. We had a meeting with the builder and the supervisor the following week and gave them copies of the defects and we are now in the process of ticking them off to be fixed before we move in. Thanks to Mal we are moving into a house that will be in much better condition. Well worth it.

5/5

Mal’s reports saved us from buying a ‘lemon’ of a house. We had booked inspections through the website as we were interested in a property at Jesmond. We were buying it as an investment property so wanted to make sure everything was fairly sound and didn’t require hundred of $$ spent on it. Mal phoned us as soon as he had finished the inspection to inform us the house had termites and was out of level in a few areas. We received the reports later the next day as he had to spend a lot more time on them. We are so grateful we had the inspections done and saved ourselves a lot of money and time. Needless to say, we are looking for another property to invest in and will be calling Mal to get our next lot of inspections done.

5/5

Thanks Mal for doing our Pest and Building Inspections in Rutherford. Your recommendation for a termite treatment was noted and done as soon as possible as a few other small defects were fixed by the vendors without us even having to ask. The reports were a great asset and we are going to keep the printed copies to look over in years to come.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections provided us with reports prior to selling our property in Maitland outlining areas that needed attention so we could either have them fixed or let potential buyers see the reports and they then knew upfront what condition our home was in prior to making an offer. We didn’t have many huge problems, so we went forward with an open house ‘as-is’. We had a few people comment how great it was that we had done the reports and some even said that they’d heard great things about Mal so we looked at that as a positive selling point. After 2 open homes (with some repeat lookers) we had 2 offers. We are so glad we’d had the inspections done and produced before the open homes. We really think it boosted our chances of an offer. We would highly recommend Mal if you are buying or selling!

5/5

Mal Wright completed a Building Inspection for me when I was buying a Unit in Kurri Kurri. His report was very good and it included things that needed repairs on the inside as well as the outside (which, for me, would have been an issue for strata). The reports really helped me with making a decision. I can highly recommend his work.

5/5

I had called a few Building Inspectors before I phoned Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections. I was trying to get inspections completed before the end of the week (it was a Monday) and was having trouble getting anyone who could complete them in time. Mal had one appointment left on the Friday and could give me a call after he had finished. I grabbed it. His office then called me on Wednesday to say they’d had someone postpone their inspections and they could bring mine forward and complete it that day. Even better! Mal still phoned me afterwards but I had the reports emailed the next day and my Conveyancer also had a copy to look over. I was pleased they had thought of me and offered to do my inspection earlier than planned. What a great system they have in place. From now on, I will be passing on Mal’s details to anyone needing inspections.

5/5

Mal Wright did inspections for us in Medowie and I was very happy with the supplied reports as well as the booking process leading up to them. I have used Mal once before and was impressed with the process as well as getting a follow up phone call from him. His advice was appreciated and I would recommend his company to anyone needing pre-purchase inspections completed.

5/5

Thank you for completing our Pest and Building inspections. Your reports were very informative and allowed us to step back and take another look at the property without our rose coloured glasses on so to speak. Very happy with your services.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building completed inspections for us at Telarah. Mal was very helpful and spent a bit of time on the phone explaining different aspects of the reports after we had read them to make sure we understood it. It was refreshing to find a business who went above and beyond. We can highly recommend his services.

5/5

Great inspector! Knowledgeable, polite, efficient, reports arrived in a timely manner and very well presented. I will highly recommend your business to anyone looking at real estate. Thank you.

5/5

I was referred to Mal Wright from another Pest and Building Inspector who couldn’t perform the inspections in time for my cooling off period. Mal was also booked but he squeezed in my inspection on a weekend so I’d have the reports ready for Monday morning for my Conveyancer.

It was a nervous wait over the weekend to get the reports and make sure everything was ok. Mal had emailed the reports directly to my Conveyancer so I didn’t need to which was fabulous as it gave me more time to sit down and read through them before my appointment and get together any questions I had for her. I also gave Mal a quick call after I had read them just to confirm a couple of things. He was more than obliging to talk over the phone and give me some direction which helped a lot.

Thanks Mal and staff for your help and getting our inspection done on a weekend. It is very much appreciated and I will pass your details on to anyone I know needing inspections.

 

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections was recommended to me by a colleague who had used him for inspections on a property purchase. I was looking at a unit in Charlestown and Mal came out and completed a Building Inspection. It was great to have colour photos in the report as well as a list of the defects that needed attention. It was very informative and I will pass on his details to anyone wanting inspections done!

5/5

We had a great experience using Mal Wright Pest and Building inspections for our Handover reports on our new build in Gillieston Heights. He dealt with the access through the site supervisor, which was great and walked through and did the inspection a few days after we booked it in. The report was very good and we took it with us to our next meeting with the builder to ensure we were getting everything installed/repaired before we took the keys. We are glad we had the report done by an independent inspector as he found more defects than the builders let us know about. We would highly recommend getting Mal out for your Handover inspection!

5/5

I have had Mal complete a few inspections for me over the past 5 years and each time he is a true professional. He has often taken the time to call me after an inspection to let me know how it went and spent a lot of time getting reports ready for me. I wouldn’t use any other inspector as I know how hard he works for his customers.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections were recommended to me by a family member after they’d had Mal do a Handover inspection for them.

I needed Pest and Building inspections on a house in Merewether so contacted Mal’s office and they booked it all in for me. They also followed up with the Real Estate agent as part of their service.

The reports were emailed the day after my inspection and had photos, descriptions and offered suggested repairs for different defects. They were as thorough as I was told they would be. We even used the reports to negotiate and have a few things repaired by the vendors before we moved.

Mal will be on my list of trades to recommend to people from now on.

5/5

After having a few people tell me that Mal Wright was the only person they’d get to do inspections, I decided to google his business before I booked. The web site was quite informative and I ended up booking my inspection online. It was organised and confirmed for a few days later by Mal’s staff so I didn’t really have to lift a finger. The reports were emailed to myself and my Conveyancer, so I didn’t have to follow up with them either. Very easy. I’d definitely use Mal again (like everyone else said!).

5/5

Hi Mal,

Thank you for your in-depth reports on the property at Hamilton. It was great that your staff handled all the enquiries with the Real Estate – buying a house is stressful enough without adding extra things on top. We would gladly give your details out to anyone buying property.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections came and did a defects report for us on a house we own in Mayfield.  We knew the house was needing repairs but we wanted to know exactly where to start. The report was very in-depth and it really helped us outline what areas of the house needed fixing as a priority. Thank you Mal, for your professionalism, expertise and time on the phone!

5/5

Mal Wright recently completed Pest and Building Inspections for us at a property in Ashtonfield. We were more than happy with his services and the reports were delivered promptly. Our Conveyancer also mentioned that she was impressed with the amount of detail included. We will be using his services again if they are needed.

5/5

I sold my house in Nelson Bay and was looking at another property in Soldiers Point. Mal Wright was highly recommended to me to by a friend & so I googled his business to check him out. I was pretty happy with everything I read on his website and booking online was the easiest option for me. An email confirmed my booking and from there they handled everything. The reports came the day after the inspection and also went to my Solicitor. They had colour photos and descriptions so it was easy to understand. I also liked that there were suggestions on who to contact to fix the issues. I will be passing on Mal’s details in the future to anyone purchasing property.

5/5

Mal did Pest and Building Inspections on my house last year for a buyer when I was selling and I was impressed (and a little worried) about how much time he spent doing them. I spoke with him just before he finished up and he gave me his business card. I hung onto it as I was going to look for a new place once I’d taken some time off to travel a bit.

Well, I recently returned to the area to visit friends and saw a property for sale that I just adored! I wasn’t done travelling but knew I had to take a risk and jump in. I called Mal and his staff arranged everything for me and the inspection was booked in for the same week. I was going overseas, but he was sending all the reports to my Conveyancer anyway and I knew he would cover everything.

It all went as planned, only a few defects and I could get a handyman on the job once I moved in. The vendors even agreed to a long settlement so I could finish my holiday.

I can highly recommend Mal to get the job done thoroughly and professionally.

5/5

Thanks for doing the Pest and Building Inspection for us on a house in Mayfield. We knew that being an older house there would be problems but you certainly gave us a lot to think about before committing to the purchase. There were a few more issues than we were lead to believe, and obviously we’re not builders so had no idea. Your reports were very informative and we able to go and get estimates for repairs without them being at the property and disrupting the current owners. You’re worth your weight in gold and we will let you know what we decide to do! Thanks Mal.

5/5

We had Mal Wright complete a Handover inspection for us at our new home in Gillieston Heights. We’re glad we spent the extra money to get an independent person come and do this. The list of problems with the house was phenomenal. Our builder had said there were only a ‘few small issues’ however we noticed more than he mentioned and decided to get this inspection done. So we now have a full report with photos on everything and have approached the builder to get it all fixed before we move in.

5/5

Mal’s Pest and Building Inspection reports are some of the most comprehensive yet easy to read reports I have come across as a Conveyancer. Our clients have certainly benefitted from his inspections and we will continue to recommend him.

5/5

After getting Mal to do a Pest and Building Inspection for us at a house in Bolwarra, we wouldn’t use anyone else. He took the time out of his busy week to squeeze in our inspection urgently on a weekend AND after he’d finished he gave us a call to go over a few things he’d found. This was ABOVE AND BEYOND what we expected and we are so, so grateful. We can definitely highly recommend Mal’s business!

5/5

Whilst researching for a Pest and Building Inspector, I read all sorts of horror stories about them finding termites, concealed water damage and leaking roofs. It made me wonder why people don’t get their properties inspected? I get that there’s a cost involved but getting it done for my own peace of mind far outweighs that. I’d rather know now what I’m up for than in 6 months time find that termites have destroyed my home.

Mal has done 2 Pest and Building inspections for me and both of them found concealed issues – excessive termite damage in one (it got crossed off my list) and a leaking roof space in another (still in negotiations with this one). I’m thankful for Mal’s expertise and attention to detail in his work as I would never have known about these issues otherwise.

If you’re planning on investing a lot of money in buying a house, the cost of a Pest and Building Inspection is just a drop in the ocean. Mal is the person I would recommend to anyone.

5/5

I was purchasing a house in Bolwarra and Mal’s business was highly recommended to me by a friend who had previously used his services. Mal’s office staff took all the details, booked in the inspection and liaised with the Real Estate so I didn’t need to worry about anything. The reports were emailed to me the morning after the inspection and were easy enough for me to read although Mal still phoned and checked that I understood everything. Luckily there were only minor issues with the property that were easily fixed. I will now be passing Mal’s details on as a satisfied customer.

5/5

Thanks for your patience with us when we booked our Pest and Building Inspection with you but ended up postponing it twice. Your understanding during this period of uncertainty (due to banks lack of communication) made us feel a bit better. The reports you produced for us were great – we had a copy forwarded to our Conveyancer as well and they mentioned how in-depth they were. We will be keeping your details handy in case we come across anyone who needs your services.

5/5

Thank you Mal and staff for your assistance in booking a Pest and Building Inspection for me at a property in Raymond Terrace. Being a first home buyer, everything was so daunting but having you follow everything up instead of me having to do it took a lot of the pressure off. The reports were easy for me to read and I appreciate you taking the time to call me afterwards to see if I had any questions. I will definitely be passing your business details on.

5/5

I have used different inspectors a few times when I’ve bought property in different states so knew a bit about what they inspect. Mal was recommended to me by my Conveyancer (amongst a couple of others) and when I checked out his website I was impressed with how much experience he had and the fact that he was also a licenced builder. I decided to give him a call to book in rather than do it online so I could ask a few questions about how he did things and I was pretty happy with his responses. My reports were great – they arrived via email the day after the inspection and a printed copy in the post a few days after that. They covered a lot of things about the property and I’d have to say they were more extensive than other reports I have had done for me previously. I think that the amount of time he spent on the property shows just how dedicated he is to his clients. I will need inspections done again next year, so I will be saving Mal’s number and using him again.

5/5

Thank you Mal for all of your assistance doing Pest and Building Inspections on not 1, but 2 properties for us! The information provided in your reports has been invaluable for us making a decision prior to purchasing. We will gladly pass on your details to any friends, family or otherwise who need your help!

5/5

Thank you for completing Pest and Building inspections at a house in Medowie for us. I know we had a couple of hiccups along the way and had to postpone for a week, but your staff were lovely and understanding. The completed reports were very informative as well. We are glad our friends recommended you!

5/5

Hi Mal,

Thank you for the reports on my mother’s house in Rutherford. We were unsure what to do when the Real Estate suggested getting Pest and Building inspections done prior to selling, but you took charge and have made this process so much easier for us.

Your reports have outlined what needs repairing immediately as well as suggesting how to go about getting the repairs fixed.

We are so grateful for your help and support during this difficult time for our family.

 

5/5

I live in Kurri Kurri and wanted someone local to do a Handover Inspection on a house in Abermain that was being built. I contacted Mal Wright as it was nearing completion to see how far in advance I would need to book in. He said as soon as I knew my PC date, to give him a call. I called the same day the builder let me know as booked Mal in at the same time. As I was walking through the house with the builder, Mal was walking through doing his inspection. He emailed the report out to me the next day & I was surprised at how many things he had found. Luckily I was able to take my printed copy to the builder the next week and asked for it all to be fixed. Thanks for your help, Mal. You’ve saved me a few headaches by completing this report!

5/5

Mal’s reports were very helpful when we decided to sell our house in Bolwarra. We had Pest and Building Inspections done prior to putting the house on the market so we knew what was wrong and we could fix some of the issues that arose. Having the printed copy was handy as we ticked things off the list as we made repairs. We also had him return when we were ready to sell so potential buyers could then see that we had done recent maintenance and everything was up to scratch. We are now just waiting on exchange and we are planning on traveling but if we ever come back to the area and buy, we will be calling Mal to do inspections for us.

5/5

We were looking at house in New Lambton and were keen on purchasing but knew there was going to be a lot of work to bring it up to what we wanted. Mal was recommended to us by a local builder who we had spoken to in regards to future renovations at the house. Mal was able to book in our inspection as well as take our list of questions about different aspects of the property and give us answers in the reports. What a patient man is all I can say. That list was long. It did take him a little bit longer to get the reports to us, but we knew to expect that. We will happily recommend you to friends, family and anyone who will listen. We are currently now renovating and hoping to move by Christmas. Fingers crossed.

5/5

Hi Mal,

Thank you for taking the time out of your weekend to get an urgent Pest and Building Inspection done at a house in Rutherford for us. We really appreciate the effort and getting the reports to us first thing on the Monday morning. We apologise for our ‘rookie’ error and leaving this till the last minute with time ticking away on our cooling off period. Next time we will be well-prepared and call you earlier.

5/5

Hi Mal,

It was amazing to receive your reports and have all the photos there showing us the major defects. My husband and I were very impressed with the detailed information which allowed us to negotiate the price and make a successful purchase within our cooling off period. I have already given your number to several of our friends looking at purchasing and would not use anyone else.

5/5

My husband and I met Mal when he was performing a Pest and Building Inspection on our house for the people purchasing it. We were impressed with his work ethic and how polite he was. He was certainly thorough with his inspection and we knew we needed to get them done at the property we were moving to, so we asked him before he left if we could book inspections through him. He took our number and said his secretary would call us soon. Less than 10 minutes after our conversation, his secretary called to book us in! Great service! She explained that we would have our reports the day after the inspections were done and took all our details. Easy! As promised, our reports were emailed the day after and they were very informative. We feel lucky to have met Mal and used his business. We have spoken to several people since then and they’ve all said how good his reports were.

5/5

Thanks for the comprehensive Pest and Building reports for the house I was buying in Gillieston Heights. It helped me negotiate the price as I knew what repairs and maintenance I was going to be up for. Your advice over the phone was invaluable. Thanks for all your time.

5/5

I recently had a Pest and Building Inspection done on my house before getting it ready to sell. Mal was very accommodating with his availability as I was working and wasn’t able to be there to let him in at certain times. He was punctual, polite and just got on with the job at hand, really. He has an impressive work ethic. My reports were as I expected – a few minor issues that I could get fixed myself, but I wasn’t worried too much. Just having the reports available for purchasers was a great thing for me. I feel like it shows you’re not hiding anything. And Mal has a very good reputation. Money well spent in my opinion. And when I’m ready to buy another property I’ll be contacting Mal to inspect it before making any major decisions.

5/5

Thank you Mal! Your hard work on producing the Pest and Building reports for the 110 year old property we were looking at is so very much appreciated. We know we had to wait a little longer for our reports than usual and considering the amount of time you spent at the property we totally understand. They certainly were a book to read when we received them. Your reports have helped so much us in regards to understanding what we need to look at moving forward in regards to renovations. It’s certainly going to be a big project, but once we are finished it will be glorious. We will keep you updated!

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building completed a Defects report for me on a house I own but was looking at renovating to eventually rent it out. I wanted to make sure there were no ‘invisible’ water leaks, get the subfloor inspected and just have a general over-view of the house. I was very happy with Mal’s reports and he spent a bit of time on the phone to me afterwards giving me advice, for which I am grateful. I can recommend Mal’s inspection services very highly.

5/5

I sold a property about 6 months ago and Mal Wright came to complete the Pest and Building Inspection for the buyers. I was pretty happy with how professional he was. He was polite and went off doing the inspection without any fuss. He was there for over an hour and gave me a business card when he was finished. I hung onto it as I knew I was going to be buying a new house.

We haven’t found a house we love yet. We thought we did and had Mal all booked in for inspections, but we were out-bid unfortunately and had to cancel. We are still looking and will definitely have Mal booked in for our next home.

5/5

Mal completed a Handover inspection for my partner & I at a house we were building in Gillieston Heights. After chatting to him on the phone we were confident we had made the right choice in getting an independent inspection done and by choosing Mal as he understood what I was talking about when referring to different things about the house. Our builder wasn’t overly happy – we had expected that but they have to let us have another inspector if we want. Mal’s reports were very thorough and we were very happy we had him complete the inspection. He discovered a lot more defects than even we had spotted. So with our report in hand, we have approached the builder and they now have to remedy the defects before we move in. Yes, it’s taking longer but we’d rather have tradesmen in there now rather than after we’re moved in and they mess up our new house. If you’re building a new house, I can’t recommend Mal enough.

5/5

Very impressed with Mal’s reports on a Pest and Building Inspection he completed for me on a house in Chisholm. The booking process was easy, his office made all the arrangements and my reports were emailed the day after the inspection. I probably spoke with Mal twice after I had received my reports and he was very accommodating and answered the questions I had professionally. I would highly recommend his business.

5/5

Mal was a great help during a recent Pest and Building Inspection I had him do at a house in East Maitland. The reports were great – very informative but I still had so many questions! Mal was patient and took the time out of his busy day to answer a lot of them for me, which helped me make some important decisions. His background as a builder has certainly helped him as an inspector and I will be recommending his business to anyone who is buying property.

5/5

Being a first home buyer, I literally had no idea what Pest and Building Inspections were or what they discovered.

My Conveyancer recommended Mal Wright, so I googled before I booked anything. It was good to see he had so many positive reviews.

I did a booking online and they followed up with an email to let me know it had been confirmed and what day the inspection was going ahead. That’s all I had to do, really! It was fairly smooth sailing from there. I got my reports (so did my Conveyancer) and there wasn’t anything major wrong with the house (it was fairly new), so it all went ahead! Mal even phoned me the day after I received the reports to make sure I understood it all.

I did get a printed copy of the reports in the mail later in the week, which I want to hang onto in case I ever sell. It will be good to look at in the future and see how much has changed!

Mal gets my First Home Buyer tick of approval.

5/5

Mal was a great help with our recent Pest and Building Inspections. He offered us advice as well as some peace of mind after we realised there was a bit more damage to the property we were buying than we had originally thought. Thanks to Mal and his Thermal Imaging camera – it showed moisture in both bathroom shower area walls. We are still going ahead, but we are now armed with reports which show this and we will re-negotiate with the vendors. It was well worth the time to have these inspections done and we would highly recommend them to anyone buying a house.

5/5

I recently sold a property in Cessnock and Mal Wright was the inspector that came out to complete the purchaser’s Pest and Building Inspections. He arrived at our house on time and introduced himself. I was impressed by how attentive he was to just about everything in and out of our house! I also noticed he took a lot of photos. I asked a few questions about what he found too, but he was loyal to his customers, not giving anything away. He left me a business card which I kept handy as I knew I would be looking for another property sooner or later. When I had decided on a property to purchase, I rang Mal and booked him in to do my inspections. Now I know why he’s so popular. He must have gone over the new house with a fine tooth comb too. Found things I hadn’t noticed and definitely gave myself a good ‘book’ to read about my new house. Well worth it and I will pass on is details to anyone buying property.

5/5

I had used Mal Wright for pre-purchase inspections at a unit I was buying in Nelson Bay several years ago, so when I was looking at upgrading I googled to see if Mal was still inspecting & was glad to find out he was! It took me a few months to find a place I liked but when I was ready I called Mal to book in inspections again. This time I had him do inspections on the place I was looking at buying in Soldiers Point, as well as the unit I owned so I could have reports ready for potential buyers to see. Thanks to his reports, I was able to negotiate a better price on the property I was buying and the reports he did on my unit helped me to gain a buyer quicker than I expected. So I’m extremely happy once again with his business and would recommend him to anyone buying OR selling.

5/5

We had booked in pre-purchase inspections with another company when they unexpectedly cancelled on us at the last minute. We were frantically googling inspectors to get our inspections completed before our cooling off period ended. Luckily, Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections came to our rescue! They’d had someone cancel a spot so we swooped in and grabbed it! Turns out, Mal is a very busy inspector so we felt very lucky to have gotten in so quickly. As promised, he had our inspections done and the reports emailed to us (and our Conveyancer) the next day. They had colour photos and descriptions of the problems that were easy to read and understand. He had found a few things we weren’t aware of when we had looked at the property ourselves, so we’re glad we had an inspector who was so thorough. Thanks Mal for all your help and we will pass your name out to friends and family who are in need (of an awesome inspector!)

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections were very helpful during a recent property purchase in Maitland. Not having ever bought a property before, I had lots of questions which Mal answered for me – even before he had done the inspection! After I had read through the reports, I called him with a few more questions and he was still happy to chat on the phone to help. It’s not often you find someone, in any industry, who will put you first. If I ever have an opportunity to purchase more property, I will be giving Mal a call!

5/5

I was looking at purchasing a property in Raymond Terrace. The Real Estate agent had informed me that there had been termite damage to the property around 5 years ago, but it was isolated to one area in the house and had all been fixed and treated, so there wouldn’t be any issues. I was a little hesitant so got straight onto Google to see who was experienced in Pest and Building Inspections and would be the best person for the job. It took a few phone calls and questions but I eventually got onto Mal Wright with his Thermal Imaging Camera. I discussed my concerns with him about the house & termites and he explained how his camera worked. I really liked the house so booked Mal in to do the pre-purchase inspections.

Mal gave me a call after he had finished the inspection to give me a quick rundown of what he had come across. There were no live termites, but the damage had been a lot more extensive than I had been led to believe. So I was left with a huge decision to make whether I was going ahead with the purchase or not. And if I went ahead I would be making a much lower offer than I had been thinking.

Mal’s expertise in this area was awesome as if I had just gone ahead and bought the property with the information given to me, I would have been thousands of dollars behind. He has very helpful, informative and I would definitely use his company again.

5/5

I was in the process of purchasing a house in Rutherford and needed to get Pest and Building Inspections done before my cooling off period ended. Mal was recommended to me by a friend who has used him when she had inspections done at the house she bought in Aberglasslyn. I gave his office a call and after speaking with Mal, booked it in. He was going to complete the inspection later that week and I got the reports the next day. The reports had colour photos and descriptions of problem areas. I was very happy with the service and the reports and can highly recommend him to anyone looking for an inspector.

5/5

We were pleased with the service and reports supplied to us from Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections. We booked online after reading the reviews on Google and the website. The house we looked at was in good condition, but we wanted to have a thorough inspection from someone who was non-biased. Mal also spent some time on the phone with my husband going over a couple of details. Very happy with everything & would highly recommend his services.

5/5

My parents had Mal Wright complete their Pest and Building Inspections when they down-sized and raved about how helpful he was, so when my husband and I were buying a new place, we decided to give Mal a call to see if he would be able to do our inspections. We had to wait a few days, but once we had our reports, we understood why. The report covered a lot, yet was still easy enough to read and understand. We also spent a little bit of time on the phone with Mal discussing a couple of issues, and he was happy to help out. We really would recommend Mal Wright for anyone who needs Pest and Building Inspections completed. Worth the wait!

5/5

I was buying property in Clarence Town and my real estate agent recommended Mal Wright to complete the Pest and Building inspections. Rather than just take my agent’s recommendation, I googled to see what other people thought first. He certainly has some very positive google reviews, the website was also very informative and there are lots of testimonials. I did look at other companies online but they weren’t as convincing. I rang Mal Wright to have a chat about the inspection, how long it would take, when I could expect my reports and asked if I needed to be there for the inspection. Mal answered all my questions without hesitation. I immediately went back online and booked an inspection.

My inspection was completed the same week, the reports were emailed the day afterwards and they also emailed copies to my conveyancer. I was pleased with the quick turn-around, but even happier with the quality of the reports and how easy they were to read. Mal followed up with a phone call the same day I received my reports which allowed me to ask a few more questions. How many other businesses do you know that would take the time to do that?

I’d use Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections again in a heart beat – I can highly recommend them!

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections has been a well-known business name throughout the Real Estate industry for years now. Many agents I know have always said to avoid using him as Mal picks up every detail of the property. There is an exception to that rule though – a lot have used Mal when they are buying their own properties, because they all want to know they are buying the best property they can. I’ve used Mal a couple of times myself when buying property. I’m not in the Real Estate industry any more now but would definitely refer him to anyone wanting Pest and Building Inspections done.

5/5

I recently had Mal complete inspections for me at a property in Bolwarra Heights. I was referred to him by a friend who had used his business when purchasing her property.

I was very happy with how easy it was to book in and I didn’t have to follow up anything with the Real Estate – they did all that for me. The reports I received were great – colour photos, descriptions of defects and they included a lot more than I thought. Needless to say, my friend was right and he was extremely thorough. I’m more than happy to give anyone a positive testimonial and recommendation for his business.

5/5

I’ve bought and sold several properties over the years as investments and each property I purchase I have used a Pest and Building Inspector. I think it’s important to find out if there’s any hidden surprises before you buy the property! I’ve used many different companies to do them, depending on the area, but after buying recently in Jesmond and getting Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections in – I won’t use anyone else! His reports were by far more in-depth and not just a quick yes/no type of answer. He went well beyond what I thought was the ‘norm’ for inspections and I’m impressed. I’m hoping to buy another property in the next 12 months and Mal’s phone number will be saved ready to call and book.

5/5

Mal Wright did inspections at my daughter’s property and they had been very happy with his reports, so when it came time for us to down-size we remembered to give Mal a call. He was friendly and very helpful on the phone. Our booking was entered and confirmed by his office staff and after that all we had to do was wait for the reports.  Everything went smoothly and we are now looking forward to moving into our new house in a matter of weeks. Thanks for your help, Mal.

5/5

I was looking at purchasing an older dwelling in Maitland and needed someone to do the Pest and Building Inspections who had a good eye for detail, was patient and thorough. I looked up Mal Wright’s website after a customer of mine mentioned they had used him and he was fabulous.

His website told me everything I needed to know – he was a licenced builder, fully insured and Real Estate agents disliked him (lol).

I booked online, but also rang around half an hour later to discuss with him different aspects I’d like him to pay attention to. Mal was very accommodating.

The inspection went smoothly (although took a little longer than usual) and he phoned me afterwards to have a chat about a couple of things.

My reports were emailed the day after and were full of information, including the areas I wanted double checked.

I am more than impressed with the service Mal provides to his customers and will be sure to pass on his details.

5/5

I had heard of Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections years ago when I was working Real Estate. A lot of agents wouldn’t refer him as he was ‘too thorough’. I moved out of real estate and started working in Newcastle and wanted to buy a house nearby as the commute was a pain.

When I found the house I wanted, I immediately knew I had to book my pre-purchase inspections with Mal.

Mal was very professional and courteous on the phone while he answered my questions. Then his office staff took my details and booked it all in.

The reports I received were fabulous. They covered all the rooms, garage and the garden shed. The defects were listed, some with photos, and the whole report was easy to read. I was impressed and now know why agents don’t recommend him!

Thanks for your help, Mal. Even though I’m no longer working in the industry, I will still refer people to your business.

 

5/5

Mal has helped us with Pest and Building Inspections a few times now, and we would keep coming back if we didn’t finally settle on the last property!

His reports have helped us make informed decisions and in the long run, saved us thousands of dollars.

He did inspections on 3 properties in the Maitland area for us. One we decided needed too many repairs, another one we were out-bid on and then it was a case of third time lucky for us.

If we ever buy another property, we will be giving Mal a call.

5/5

My partner and I were buying a house in Corlette. He has lots of friends who are tradies so asked around for the best Pest and Building Inspector. Mal Wright’s name came up quite a few times. We were happy with our friend’s recommendations, so booked our inspections online. We secured an inspection time later that same week and emailed through a list of concerns we had with the property.

When we received our reports the day after the inspection, all our questions had been answered and other defects he had picked up whilst there were also included. They were such comprehensive reports, yet they weren’t difficult to read. After reading the reports we approached the Real Estate agent and negotiated an amount off the asking price using the reports. Only a small win, but everything counts!

 

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections were very helpful during our recent house purchase. Not only did they complete our inspections and send us reports that were easy to read, Mal actually spent a bit of time with us at the property whilst he was completing the inspection answering our questions. And after we had the reports he called to make sure we understood it all. It was very reassuring and we felt that he had our best interests at heart. We will be recommending his business to everyone.

5/5

Thank you, Mal, for your prompt, professional and in-depth reports on my property purchase in Tanilba Bay. Everything seemed a bit daunting being a first home buyer, but you helped make the process a little less stressful. Your reports were also very good – I could read and understand them! Anyone buying a house should be using you for their Pest and Building Inspections!

5/5

After purchasing a property in Telarah, we were so excited about getting into our new place that we forgot all about the Pest and Building Inspections! It wasn’t until the Real Estate reminded us that it needed to be done that we realised. We quickly googled and liked the look of Mal’s website. We decided to phone instead of doing an online booking as we wanted to make sure it was completed asap.

We were lucky to get a spot that same week and were very grateful. After it was booked in, we spoke with a few people and they all said Mal was very good, so we were a bit relieved we’d made a good choice.

Our reports arrived the day after the inspection and even though they were quite detailed, they were still easy to read and had different photos of certain defects which helped identify them.

Our praises go to Mal for such a great service that he provides and was always so professional when we spoke with him.

5/5

We were more than happy with the outcome of our Pest and Building Inspections completed by Mal back in April.

He had found a few defects that were more than just ‘minor’ things to fix, so we went back to our Real Estate Agent armed with his reports and negotiated an amount off our original offer.

Without the inspections we would have been none-the-wiser about the defects, so Mal has saved us a lot of time and money in the long run.

We will be shouting out your name to people looking at open houses whenever we drive by! lol

5/5

I’d heard of a few colleagues who’d purchased property and used Mal Wright for Pest and Building Inspections. I asked around and everyone who had used him had been very happy so once I’d decided on a property I got online and booked my inspections.

I wasn’t too concerned about the house as it was newer, but there were a couple of things that I specifically wanted Mal to look at. After speaking to him on the phone, I was glad I booked him. He was pleasant on the phone and assured me that the extra items I wanted him to look at would be included in the report.

There was so much about the property that was covered in the reports and I was pretty impressed. Once I had read through the reports I called to thank him.

Like my colleagues, I can now say how great Mal’s inspections are. Thank you again.

5/5

My parents recommended Mal Wright Pest and Building when I said I was going to purchase a property. They’d bought a house in Green Hills a few years ago and remembered how great he was.

I was buying nearby in Morpeth so gave him a call to get the inspections booked in and out of the way (one less thing to stress about then!)

They were able to book them in the same week and I had the reports the day after (pretty efficient!) They were easy to read, had colour photos and, thankfully, there were no major issues (just a few small defects that were easy to fix).

I’m very happy with the outcome and can say I’d definitely use this service again, if the need arises! In the meantime I’ll just pass on Mal’s details.

5/5

After purchasing a house in Tea Gardens, I needed inspections done! Mal Wright Pest and Building was recommended to me by my Conveyancer.

I rang and spoke with Mal and he confirmed he had an availability that week to complete it and I would get my reports the following day.

I wanted to meet him at the house while he was doing the inspection, and he gave me a time part-way through the inspection when he could stop for a bit and give me an update. Mal was very informative and gave me some great information in regards to the property.

I’d be more than happy to pass on his details to any prospective buyers who need an excellent Pest and Building Inspector.

5/5

Mal completed Pest and Building Inspections for me on a house in Tenambit.

He offers a great all-inclusive service for customers – he chases up the Real Estate so he can go to the property, completes the inspections and also sends the reports to your conveyancer.

I was quite impressed at the length of the reports and they were well presented. Value for money and peace of mind at the same time.

5/5

I heard of Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections through a colleague when he used Mal to do inspections at the house he bought in Fern Bay. I had a look at the reports he’d been sent out and was very impressed. I was buying in the same area so booked an inspection online through his website.

I heard from his office the same day and they let me know it was all booked in and going ahead. I didn’t need to do anything else.

The reports were emailed to me the day after the inspection was done and they covered everything I needed. I even used them to negotiate a little bit off the asking price for different things that needed repairing.

I’d be more than happy to pass Mal’s name around to colleagues or friends needing inspections.

 

5/5

I’m glad I googled and found Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections when buying my house. There were certainly a lot of positive comments about the business but I decided to give them a call first.

Mal was very friendly and professional on the phone and it made me comfortable knowing I had the right person to do my inspections.

I was a little hesitant to read the reports, worrying about the terminology but I didn’t need to. They were easy to read, included photos and Mal was happy for me to call afterwards to make sure I understood everything and go over any questions.

I would happily recommend them to anyone looking at purchasing a house.

5/5

We saw Mal’s car at a property while he was doing an inspection in our street. We took down his number and looked him up online as we were also in the process of looking for a new house.

Once we had decided on a property, Mal was one of the first people on our list to call. We wanted to know everything was structurally sound and would have no major issues.

His website labels him as ‘Mr Pedantic’, and it’s pretty spot on! We met Mal at the house towards the end of the inspection and he had already spent an hour there inspecting, writing and photographing different things. He spent about half an hour with us going over a few things and then still had more to do!

We received the reports the next day by email and even though we had spoken to Mal at the house, reading them was a good refresher and they also included other smaller issues he didn’t cover in person that day.

We are more than happy with the whole process of the Pest and Building Inspections offered by Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections and can highly recommend them.

 

5/5

Being first time home buyers we were bit lost in this area. We had looked at several houses in the Aberglasslyn area before finding one we loved.

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections were recommended to us by some friends and we couldn’t have been happier. Mal was friendly and professional over the phone. We were very impressed with the detailed and easy to follow report that came back the day after the inspection.

The whole process went smoothly and we will definitely be recommending Mal to our friends.

5/5

Thank you for the Pest and Building Inspections you completed on a property in Bolwarra Heights we were looking at purchasing.

The reports arrived promptly the day after inspection via email and were quite detailed but still easy to read.

We would recommend Mal Wright’s services to anyone who is buying a house!

5/5

My partner and I just want to say thank you very much for your time inspecting the property yesterday and also for the prompt turn around on having the findings emailed through this morning.

The detailing of the report itself absolutely represents your meticulous attention to detail and it was great reassurance to know how thorough you were. We’re glad we had you complete the job. I thought reading through the reports would be an overwhelming process but the way you had it in layman’s terms with the photographs and a description on the improvements which can be made were beneficial.

I’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone I know requiring a Building and Pest Inspection in the future.

5/5

I initially submitted an enquiry online through the Mal Wright website and received a response the same day. When I was ready to book my inspection, I called and within 10 minutes I had my booking. Mal was easy going and really accommodating. Nothing was too hard. I spoke directly to Mal after the inspection and he talked me through my results and offered ways to resolve any issues. It was just the clarification I needed as the reports were quite comprehensive. Over all a great service that I would recommend to anyone needing an inspection done.

5/5

A thank you to Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections for your fast and informative Pest and Building inspection; it was extremely helpful. You shed a lot of light on our purchase. Moving forward, we will be taking your advice and getting a termite treatment done on the property right away. We would happily recommend you to family, friends and strangers!

5/5

On behalf of my wife and myself, I would like to thank Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections for a hassle-free pest and building inspection process, an informative report and a very quick turn-around time. The information contained in the reports has definitely given us peace of mind and enabled us to make a more informed decision on the purchase of the property in Glendale. Thanks again we will be recommending you guys when asked who did our Pest and Building inspection.

5/5

I have referred business to Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections on many occasions and all my client feedback has been extremely positive.

Mal is very reliable, professional and always personable. My clients have often commented on his depth of knowledge and efficient service.

I personally find Mal a pleasure to deal with and would recommend him to anyone considering purchasing or building property.

5/5

Thanks so much for your very detailed Pest and Building Inspection reports on the property at Merewether.

Both my husband and I were greatly impressed with the level of detail you provided. We’re not sure whether we’ll bid on this place, but we’ll definitely get you to inspect any other properties we’re interested in.

5/5

If you’re looking for a professional Pest and Building Inspector with a wealth of knowledge, Mal Wright is the one for you. Mal came and completed a Handover inspection for us at our new house in Cliftleigh.

He picked up faults that we would never have noticed ourselves with our lack of knowledge regarding certain codes and building standards. Armed with the detailed report provided by Mal, when the issues were raised with our builder all problems were swiftly rectified with no complaints. Mal was also always happy to answer any questions we had or explain in detail any parts of the report we did not fully understand.

I would highly recommend Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections to anyone building a new home. Prices are fair and reasonable and the whole process gave us peace of mind.

5/5

Thank you very much Mal for your detailed reports. It was absolutely a wise decision that we chose you to complete our Pest and Building Inspections. We will pass on your details for sure as Mal is very nice man – professional, patient and kind. We appreciate your professional service and thank you.

5/5

Mal performed a Handover inspection on our new build last year in North Rothbury. His professionalism, vast knowledge, attention to detail and advice are some of the reasons that I recommend him to anyone building a new house. However, the most important service he offers is peace of mind, knowing that your build is as compliant with building codes as possible.
I would (and do) highly recommend Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections to anyone that is looking to build a new home.

5/5

Your Pest and Building Inspection on a potential property my wife and I were purchasing in Maitland was very through and the comprehensive report was easy to read with good photos. I was also impressed that you rang me to discuss the issues involved.
Because there were several issues with the building you inspected, we withdrew from the contract. We are still looking for a place to buy and when we find what we’re looking for we will definitely be calling you to have the Pest and Building Inspections done. Thank You!

 

5/5

Thank you to Mal from Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections for your timely and flexible service. Thanks for the honest and no fuss approach, your advice helped me a lot. I will be using you again.

5/5

I contacted Mal Wright and got an appointment to suit my busy schedule for a vendor inspection (prior to selling).

Mal arrived on time and after the inspection gave me a verbal briefing of the outcome. I had the formal report in my inbox the next morning. His assessment was thorough, and his communication style was really effective and reliable.

The end to end process from contact to receiving the report was quick and efficient. I highly recommend Mal’s services for your next house inspection.

5/5

Having Mal complete Pest and Building inspections at a property I was interested in at Carrington certainly put my mind at rest.

It wasn’t a big house, but I just needed to know what was going on in the places I couldn’t see. The roof space and sub floor were 2 of those concerns.

Mal was kind enough to give me a call once he had finished his inspections and have a chat about the house before I got my reports the next day. He was very helpful and even though there were easily fixed, small issues, he put me at ease by giving me possible solutions (things I thought were big problems, really weren’t!). I used the reports to follow up with the different qualified trades I needed and they also reassured me.

I now know what I’m up for financially before I even sign on the dotted line which has helped me immensely with budgeting and prioritising.

I’d say if you’re unsure about a property, you really need to get those inspections done. Mal is the one to call!

5/5

My partner and I went to an open house where they had a copy of a Pest and Building Inspection for the property available to look at. It wasn’t very in-depth, and I felt like it just ticked off boxes for the vendor to sell the house. We decided we wanted to put in an offer, but also get another inspection done by Mal in the meantime. Our friends had recommended him after purchasing property and had said how great he was. The Real Estate agent wasn’t too happy about us having an independent inspection done and when they found out that it was Mal, they tried to convince us to get a different inspector. That made us even more determined to find out what they hadn’t covered in the reports. Mal’s reports came via email the day after the inspection, but he actually gave us a call before we had a chance to read them. He’d found termite damage which hadn’t been disclosed to us. We were speechless. Didn’t expect that at all. But even though he hadn’t found live termites, the damage was done. Thousands of dollars in repairs made the decision for us to pull out of the property negotiations. Mal literally saved us A LOT of money. So get those inspections done regardless of whether they have had them done already. Unless it’s done by Mal, of course. You’d have no idea if they were dodgy or not.

5/5

After going through the whole process of buying a house, you’d be crazy to not get Pest and Building Inspections done. I didn’t think there was much wrong with a property I was buying in Thornton, but when I received the reports, there were numerous defects. Yes, they were mostly smaller things I could fix myself, but they all add up in the end. I would always have inspections done just for my own peace of mind. I’m not a builder or a pest inspector so those qualifications are invaluable. Thank you Mal, for taking the time to do such thorough inspections and also for taking more time to speak with me over the phone.

5/5

Thank you so much for your thorough inspection of the property I am buying in Kotara. Your staff were polite and helped me with the booking process. The reports were emailed to me in a timely manner and were extremely helpful. I especially liked that they had colour photos and I also received a printed copy in the post! I’m thankful my friends recommended you.

5/5

I went and looked at a house in Maitland that I was interested in purchasing. I went back two more times before putting in an offer and being accepted. I booked in a Pest and Building Inspection with Mal Wright as soon as I could as I had heard he was an outstanding inspector.

My inspection went ahead a few days later and the report was emailed the following day. Mal picked up on quite a few defects that I didn’t realise were even an issue….. and I’d looked at the property 3 times!

I’m grateful I had Mal complete the inspection. I still went ahead with the purchase, but just with better knowledge!

5/5

My husband and I had inspected the property personally. Thankfully, Mal’s thorough process and detailed inspections detected issues with the property that we hadn’t realised.
Mal and his team organised everything on our behalf which was wonderful, taking some of the stress away from the already stressful process of buying a house. Communication was professional, prompt and the reports easy to interpret.
I can highly recommend Mal and his team for his Pest and Building Inspections.
Thankyou.

5/5

Mal is such a wealth of knowledge! After he completed a Handover inspection on our new house in Heddon Greta, he took the time to talk to us on the phone and explain different things before we approached the builder with our report. We are so glad we had him come and do the inspection for us, as there were so many items we didn’t realise that needed fixing! We are so grateful for all your help & will be letting our new neighbours know of your good work.

5/5

Mal did a handover inspection for me about 9 years ago when I built a new house in Newcastle. His name always stuck in my mind (having the same name helped) so when I was buying another property in Nelson Bay, I knew who to call to get my inspections done again.

The reports I received this time around were even more thorough than the first time (if that’s possible?). I was very impressed and although he only found a few defects, I felt the report was a great help so we know what to look out for when we go to do repairs.

Thanks for you help once again Mal. I’ll call you again once I’m ready to increase my property portfolio.

5/5

I’d made the decision after so many years renting that it was time to buy my own place. The whole process has been daunting. Looking at houses, speaking with Agents, Conveyancers and the bank! There’s so much paperwork to fill in as well! When my Conveyancer mentioned that I will also need a Pest and Building Inspection done I was gobsmacked thinking it was just another form I’d have to fill out and pay money for. I was almost not going to do it, but spoke to a few friends about it and they all agreed it was money worth spending. A couple of them had use Mal previously and said he was very good at his job so I booked online. He carried out the inspection within a few days and emailed out my reports the following day. I was amazed at how much detail was in the reports and honestly, he covered things I didn’t even realise would be included. There were a few minor issues with the property which were easy enough to fix but a drainage issue caught my attention. After speaking on the phone with Mal, I approached the Real Estate agent with the problem and he then spoke to the vendors. It was great to be able to use the reports to back me up and have the problem fixed. I’m so glad I had the inspections done – it has actually worked in my favour. If you’re buying a house – get Mal to do the inspections!

5/5

Mal’s reports were very informative and comprehensive but at the same time easy to read. They covered everything about the house and property. My conveyancer even said how thorough they were. We were very happy with Mal and his staff and will be using his business again!

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections were great when they completed inspections for me in Singleton. I didn’t realise he traveled out that way so that was a pleasant surprise. He made all the arrangements for the booking so all I had to do was provide the details. I’d come across Mal’s name a couple of times – a friend mentioned that he’d done an inspection at their property when they were selling and my Conveyancer had also said he was very good. A google search confirmed his credibility! I was very happy with the reports that I received even though there were a few issues that had come up. They had been covered well in the layout and I was able to use the reports to go back to the vendors to negotiate. Overall, I was very happy with the outcome and will be passing on Mal’s details to everyone I know buying, building or selling.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections completed inspections for me when I bought a house in Tea Gardens. He was very helpful as I had lots of questions about the house. He explained a few things to me as well so it was very nice of him to take the time out of his busy day for me. I would recommend him to anyone.

5/5

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Mal from Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections after he inspected a property for me in Medowie. I met him at the property part-way through the inspection to go over a few things with him and discuss any ‘problems’ that he may have found. He was very helpful and I didn’t want to take up too much of his time so he offered to call me once he had completed it entirely. He phoned me back later that afternoon and I’m happy to say he didn’t have any bad news for me!

Surprisingly, my reports were actually emailed to me the next day! I thought it would be a few days at least. They covered everything I had asked him about and a few minor items that weren’t really concerning. It was all very easy to read too.

Glad I had Mal’s expertise on the job and I will recommend him to anyone.

5/5

My brother-in-law told me to get Mal Wright to do the Pest and Building Inspections on a property I was buying with my partner. He had previously used Mal and was very pleased as Mal had found termite damage which the vendor hadn’t disclosed.

I initially phoned Mal to check on his availability and was lucky enough that he had 3 availabilities left for that week so I booked one on the spot.

Once Mal had completed the inspection, I got the reports the next day via email. It took me a while to read through them (quite comprehensive, but easy to understand). There was nothing bed that stood out so that was great, but I did have a few questions as we wanted to renovate some areas. Mal was more than happy to chat on the phone and was able to answer the questions I had.

I can see why my brother-in-law was so stoked – Mal was a wealth of information. I’m glad he did our inspections as I know I’ve got nothing to worry about.

5/5

I’d was building a new house in Gillieston Heights and it was nearing completion when a friend asked if I was going to get an independent Handover inspection done. I hadn’t really thought about it until then so did some research online and called a few inspectors. When I spoke with Mal on the phone, he asked questions about the house and who the builder was and genuinely seemed interested so I booked an inspection online through his website later that day.

My builder wouldn’t allow me to be at the inspection when Mal was there and didn’t seem impressed that I’d booked an inspection so I emailed Mal a list of items I wanted to be checked.

Mal’s report was great – it included the items I’d emailed him but also a few more that I hadn’t realised. I had to book in a time with the builder and his supervisor to look at the defects list so it was very handy to have them all there in the report. It also meant that they couldn’t try and get out of doing the repairs or make excuses.

Overall, I’d say having the Handover Inspection was money well spent and can highly recommend Mal Wright.

5/5

We had googled before booking our Pest and Building Inspection with Mal Wright. There were quite a few we found online, but Mal’s website and testimonials stood out.

The house we were looking at was a bit older so there were a few areas that we wanted to be thoroughly checked and Mal seemed like he was the man for the job.

We were very impressed at the amount of detail that was in our reports and he’d included the areas of concern for us. We also received a colour printed copy of the reports in the mail.

We’re more than happy with the service and expertise we received from Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections and will be passing on his details to anyone who needs them.

5/5

I contacted Mal after a friend (who is a Real Estate agent) mentioned he had done inspections on his newest property purchase. He’d said how great Mal was and I should book him in to look at the house I was buying.

I went home and googled Mal Wright and was very impressed with what I read on both his website and the Google reviews. I rang his office the next day and booked an inspection.

There was a couple of days wait but really, if he was quiet and could do it straight away, I’d be questioning that! It gave me time to go back to the house and have another look in the meantime anyway. I also gave Mal’s office a call and asked if they could double-check a few things while he was there. And they were more than happy to accommodate that request too.

The day after the inspection I was emailed the reports and Mal followed up with a phone call later that day. The things I’d asked for to be looked at were included in the report, there were colour photos and recommendations for repairs.

I wonder if every inspector is this thorough? Maybe you need to ask yourself that before you book someone else. Thanks for your help Mal.

5/5

I purchased a house in beautiful Nelson Bay and Mal Wright went and completed the Pest and Building Inspections. I’d had Mal do inspections for me years ago when I bought a house in Newcastle, so I knew what to expect. He was still just as thorough and I received an emailed copy as well as a printed copy of the reports! A couple of days after I’d had time to read the reports, I phoned Mal and picked his brain over a few things. He took the time to explain things and was very polite. I can’t recommend his services enough! He should be the first person you call if you buy a house.

5/5

Mal’s Pest and Building reports were great. A friend had given me his details after they had inspections done. He took the time to explain a few things to me over the phone that were in the reports and answered questions. It was really nice of him to take the time to do that and it was appreciated.

5/5

I had been undecided as to whether I wanted to pay the extra money to get a Pest and Building Inspection done. I didn’t think it was really necessary. The house looked fine?!?

My Conveyancer had recommended Mal (and a couple of other inspectors) when I’d had an appointment and I’d looked at each online. Mal’s website was impressive – lots of information & good reviews. I still wasn’t 100% convinced but when my conveyancer pushed a bit more, I had to book one.

I had a week to get it done due to my cooling off period ending. Mal had it booked in and completed within a couple of days. He actually called me from the house on the day he was doing my inspection to have a chat to me. Turned out he’d found termite damage – but luckily no live ones. It was still going to be a process to get another inspection to check for further damage inside the walls and then repair the damage. It certainly gave me something to think about that day.

I guess the moral to this is – ALWAYS get a Pest and Building Inspection done. If I hadn’t done it, I’d be living in a house that quite possibly could be falling down around my ears.

Mal’s reports helped us negotiate with the vendors with price and repairs, so we are very grateful.

5/5

Mal Wright did pre-purchase inspections for me at a house I’d put an offer on in Rutherford. I’d booked online and Mal’s office took care of the booking from there. They acquired access to the property and Mal went and did the inspection within a couple of days. My reports were emailed the day after the inspection and I took a couple of days to read through them thoroughly. I called Mal a few days later and he was more than happy to answer a few questions I had. I will be passing on his name and number to anyone who needs inspections done.

5/5

Having recently purchased property in Thornton, I can highly recommend Mal Wright for your Pest and Building Inspection needs! The reports I received went above and beyond what my expectations were. He also phoned me after I had received my reports just to make sure I understood everything. Such a great service he offers.

5/5

Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections did pre-purchase inspections for us on a property in Chisholm we were interested in. Although it was a fairly new house, we still wanted peace of mind that everything was going to be ok and there were no maintenance issues that would break the bank. They emailed our reports to our conveyancer as well as us which saved us time when speaking with our Conveyancer again – she’d already had time to read them. We will happily hand out Mal’s name and number to anyone we come across who is buying or selling!

Mal has completed a couple of inspections for us in the Newcastle area. Each time he was very professional and took the time to answer our questions. His reports have also been great tools to help negotiate price and repairs through the selling agent. We are planning on increasing our property portfolio again soon, so Mal will be one of the first people we contact again when we’re ready to buy!

5/5

100% I would not hesitate to recommend Mal Wright or using his service again with any future property purchases. From the first phone call to Mal he provided a professional service and made everything so easy. Mal had our inspection well underway on our arrival at the property and ensured he introduced himself to us. He took the time to explain any potential issues and to show us any problem areas and he was extremely polite and professional. Our reports were emailed to us the following day and Mal had said to call him if there were any other questions.

Being a first home buyer, I wanted a thorough inspection by a skilled, experienced, and qualified inspector. I wanted a clear description of any concerns. I chose Mal Wright because he offered a combined Pest and Building Inspection and the information provided on his website looked reputable and trustworthy. Mal did a great job and I’ve already referred him to a colleague.

5/5

Mal has previously done Pest and Building Inspections for me on investment properties. His reports are professional, thorough and he takes the time to explain things to you. He is an asset to anyone buying (or selling) property. I wouldn’t get anyone else.

I bought a house in Newcastle and had the usual Pest and Building Inspections done under the guidance of the Real Estate Agent I had been dealing with. Everything seemed great as it had been recently renovated so I went ahead with the purchase.

Around 6 months later, I noticed a few things didn’t seem right. There were cracks appearing in the newly painted exterior. A few tiles fell off a wall in one of the bathrooms. One particular window was becoming harder to open/close.

Not sure what was happening, I asked a few friends what they thought and they recommended Mal Wright to come and have a look.

Mal was available to take a look that week and brought his Thermal Imaging Camera and Moisture meter with him. He spent around an hour going over the house, listening to my concerns and writing things down. After he was done he quickly explained what was wrong.

When I received my report the next day, I was able to sit down in my own time and go over it carefully. Mal had explained everything and given me ideas on how to fix the problems (moisture issues). I believe that the previous owners covered up the issues by renovating and the real estate didn’t help by getting in their own inspector either.

So glad I had Mal come out, but it might have been better if I’d had him do the original inspections. It could have saved me some money in the long run.

We bought a house in Tea Gardens and Mal Wright was recommended to us to get Pest and Building Inspections completed. He was very polite and professional on the phone when I called to book in the inspections. He also made all the arrangements with the Real Estate to get in to the house so we didn’t need to do much at all! The reports were emailed the day following the inspection and they were easy to read. I had a couple of questions though and Mal was more than happy to chat on the phone about them. We now know why Mal was recommended to us. It was apparent to us that he works for the person buying the home (his clients), not the vendor or agent. Thanks.

Thanks Mal for all your help with my recent Pest and Building Inspection. Being a first home buyer, everything is pretty daunting, but you have made the process a bit easier. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, explaining things to me and your advice. It really was invaluable. I’m glad I had you on my team!

I required an inspection of my property due to unexplained mould on a wall in my house. Mal was able to come out and have a look at it and used his Thermal Imaging camera to help identify if we had possible rising damp or something else.

It turns out that his Thermal Imaging camera is a wonderful device and picked up a small leaking pipe inside of the wall! Having such an accurate outcome has allowed me to notify the trades I need to come and repair it and they know exactly where it is already.

Mal’s inspection has been invaluable.

I had Mal Wright complete a Pest and Building Inspection on a house in Maitland for me about 6 months ago. There were a few things that he had picked up in the inspections that needed to be amended so I went back to the Real Estate agent and asked for them to be fixed. Apparently the Vendors weren’t willing to do the work and saw it as a waste of money for them. I stuck to my guns though and was eventually able to negotiate a better purchase price. I have just had trades come through and repair some things so I am able to move in. I’m so glad I had the inspections done and would highly recommend Mal to anyone.

I purchased a unit in Raymond Terrace and my Conveyancer recommended I get a Building Inspection done. I googled a few Inspectors and narrowed it down before deciding to use Mal Wright as I liked the look of his website and his google reviews were very positive. After speaking with Mal on the phone I knew I had made the right choice.

The booking was easy – Mal’s secretary took all my details and she booked everything in from there. I didn’t have to make any arrangements with the Real Estate or the tenant.

My report was emailed ( as well as a hard copy arriving by mail a few days later). It was easy for me to understand but Mal also phoned to see if I had any further questions. It was great of him to follow up as I was wondering about a couple of things so his advice was appreciated.

If you are needing any type of inspection I can highly recommend Mal and his staff.

My partner & I recently built a house in Fletcher and needed a Handover inspection completed before moving in. I rang and booked one through Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections as I’d heard from friends he was very good. My building inspector wouldn’t let us be on the property while Mal was doing the inspection which I thought was strange but I went along with it and waited for my reports to be emailed the day after the inspection.

I had believed that the builders and supervisor were doing their job properly but apparently not! The inspection identified several faults including the stairs not being installed correctly, drainage problems and shoddy painting. Needless to say, I went back to the supervisor with the report and tried to calmly ask why…. So we are now waiting a bit longer to move into our new house as I won’t move in until it has all been fixed. The builder isn’t happy but so what, neither am I. I’m also considering having Mal come out again to re-inspect the house after the works have been completed.

Thanks to Mal for his expertise. We may not have known any different if we didn’t get him to do the inspection.

I met Mal when he came and did Pest and Building Inspections at a house I was renting that was for sale. I took notice of how long he was there, the things he looked at and was quite amazed at how much he wrote down (the house was fairly new so not a lot wrong with it). I asked for his business card once he was completed as I was eventually going to buy a place of my own.

12 months later as I was looking at properties I remembered and hoped he was still inspecting. A quick google search confirmed he was and once I found ‘the one’ I booked the inspections online. I also added a few questions about a couple of areas I wanted him to pay particular attention to.

My inspections were booked and completed within a few days and the day afterwards I received the reports via email. The questions I had asked at the time of booking were answered clearly. The reports covered everything about the property and were pretty thorough.

I’m glad I came across Mal Wright and had him do the inspections. He has helped me immensely and the reports have helped me understand what I will need to prioritise in maintenance.

I didn’t realise how much time and effort was involved in getting a Pest and Building Inspection done until I had Mal Wright come and do them at my house before I decided to sell. I wanted the reports ready for when my house went on the market so the potential purchasers had them handy and could look while they were at the open house.

I organised an afternoon time with Mal so that I was there if he had any questions but he pretty much focused on the job at hand and off he went. He was busy inspecting and writing things down for almost 1.5 hours.  He had a chat to me about a few things before he left and I received emailed copies of the reports the next day. Fairly quick turn-around in my opinion.

If you’re buying, or selling, I can highly recommend Mal’s services. Very professional.

I phoned a few places to get prices for Pest and Building Inspections before deciding to go with Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections. He wasn’t the cheapest, but just talking to him on the phone made that decision for me. He was easy to talk to, answered my questions and confirmed that was licenced and insured without any hesitation. The reports were emailed to me the day after the inspection and after reading them Mal was happy to set aside some time to answer a few questions I had. I certainly felt like the services he provides are personalised. If I need any other inspections done I will be sure to give him a call.

5/5

We have had Mal Wright come and do inspections for us a few times now in the Rutherford/Aberglasslyn area. Each time he has delivered informative and thorough reports. He actually saved us a lot of money on one property! We wouldn’t use anyone else and always recommend him to anyone we know who is buying.

5/5

Mal had been to a house we were renting in Newcastle when it was for sale and completed the Pest and Building Inspections. I noted how professional he was when he booked the time in with us and also when he came to the house. He was very respectful and polite. He probably spent close to 1.5 hours inspecting the property inside and out. When the time came for my wife and I to buy our own home we called Mal straight away as we had been so impressed with him. This time we even more impressed as we got our reports and it noted every defect in the house, the outside covered fences, driveways and the garage. It was really in-depth. I’m so glad we had him do these reports as we can now buy knowing exactly how much money we are going to have to spend on repairs and budget accordingly. We can definitely recommend Mal Wright!

I work in a Real Estate office and was purchasing my own home so asked a few different agents who they had used for Pest and Building Inspections. All of them said Mal Wright. Most of them said they don’t recommend him to potential purchasers though as he is very thorough. I was able to book in an inspection for the same week and very eager to get my reports to make a final decision. It’s so hard waiting to find out what the verdict is!! Very suspenseful. I was lucky though and there were only minor defects found so most were an easy fix. My offer was accepted and now I am waiting to move….more suspense (although there is lots to do!). Thanks to Mal – I will be sure to pass your name around to friends as well as clients.

Mal was very helpful when my partner and I were purchasing our first property. It wasn’t gorgeous and we knew it needed work but we had great plans for it. Mal spoke with us in regards to which walls were load-bearing and gave us a few ideas of what we could do differently. He seemed very knowledgeable and we are both grateful for his input. We will be recommending him to anyone and everyone!

I recently purchased a second property and called Hunter Valley Pest and Building Inspections as I had used them previously. They were on holidays and unable to do the job within the time frame needed so they recommended getting Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections. I must say Mal was just as impressive as HVP&B. The reports were great and I spoke with Mal afterwards about a few things. I can highly recommend using Mal Wright (and I would use Hunter Valley Pest and Building again too).

5/5

We were purchasing property and our Conveyancer in Kurri Kurri recommended Mal Wright Pest and Building Inspections. Mal actually found a couple of major defects at the property but we were able to use the reports and negotiated a price deduction with the vendors. We were so glad we decided to have the inspections as it has saved us a lot of money in the long run.

5/5

I had Mal complete Pest and Building Inspections for me after reading a few recommendations for him on Facebook. I was extremely happy with the reports I received and Mal spoke with me on the phone to make sure I understood everything. I’d be more than happy to recommend him to anyone through Facebook or just verbally. He offers an excellent service.
