Michael recently did an inspection on a property I bought and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. He is very personable and professional ! His report was extremely thorough and as a first home buyer I was extremely impressed. He explained everything and was able to accommodate my request at short notice.

As a First Home Buyer, Michael was so helpful and made the inspection process easy. We faced some challanges with tenats and a 50 Year Old Unit, but Michael was very thorough and ensured I understood everything that was mentioned in the report. I would reccomend Northern House Inspections to anyone I know needing a inspection done! Thanks again Michael!

I used Northern House Inspections for a building and pest inspection at a property I purchased in Bundoora and was very impressed with their service. Their reports were thorough and easy to read. They included lots of pictures and many recommendations. Even before engaging their inspection services, Mike kindly gave me much advice about common problems to look out for when buying a property. I highly recommend this company and will happily use them again.

My wife and I couldn't recommend Michael any higher. He came out and inspected our house after settlement and provided a thorough building and pest inspection. As we had already purchased the property and had the keys, Michael was able to walk us through the building once he had completed the inspections and discuss each issue in detail including solutions/recommendations. Every interaction with Michael has been a joy, he is professional with great communication skills. Stop looking and ring Michael now!

Honest, reliable and trustworthy.

Mike did a very thorough building and pest inspection report on the house we are buying and made himself available for a detailed discussion which helped identify the small jobs needed to bring the house back to the level we will want once we move in. His advice was extremely useful to us. While we hope not to need to use him again we would highly recommend him to others going through the process of buying a house and needing an inspection.
26 May 2023
I had Mike out to inspect my first property purchase. He's very easy to deal with, and let me know exactly what's going to happen and when. He talked me through the defects he found, and recommended ways to fix them. He even pointed out things that could become problems in the future, which I found really useful as a first time buyer. The written report I received was very thorough, without being nit picky. I was stressing out about the purchase, but Mike helped put my mind at ease. Worth the money just for that! Highly recommend

Mike is the man you need for all your building inspection needs. He leaves no stone unturned, finding those less obvious issues that you wished you had of known about before you bought (e.g. bathroom moisture). He provides a professional and comprehensive report that he talks you through, ensuring that you understand his findings and feel confident in your decision to either purchase or run for the hills! We've used Mike for multiple properties and can't recommend him highly enough.

With really short notice, Mike was a savior and provided us with a building and pest inspection right before auction. He was prompt and professional from the get go. The report was detailed and Mike even ran through the report over the phone to simplify it. You can tell he knows his stuff. I can see why he has a great rep in the north. Thanks Mike for your prompt service. We got the house!

05 Apr 2022
I requested Michael to inspect an old house (5 BD 2BT) I recently bought as I wanted to know what I am getting into, any repairs needed etc. He was prompt in attending the site, spent 2 hours going into extra detail to provide a very comprehensive report. Best of all before releasing the report he called me and explain in that order of most to least concerning items. That I found to be quite helpful. He is an excellent person to deal with. He did a similar inspection on an investment property I bought so I know the level of detail he goes into. I highly recommend him no doubt. Cost is reasonable compared to others out there too.
06 Mar 2022
I contacted Mike about a house we wanted to purchase and he gave us excellent advice and we moved on to a different location.. Subsequently we asked Mike to assess another house and we were able to purchase this one with a significant level of confidence. Mike is professional and very courteous. Best of all he had our report ready very quickly, a must when you are going to auction. We have no hesitation in recommending Mike to anyone needing a building / house inspection. Happy to be contacted at 0419 896 635.

olivers620 from Fitzroy
Mike called us after the inspection and stepped us through the report, answering all our questions in simple terms. We'd gladly recommend NIH, with one small caveat: our roof wasn't accessible with a 3.6m ladder and so Mike wasn't able to inspect it - he made this clear up-front and it wasn't a surprise. But it's something you might want to consider if you have a high or difficult-to-access roof.
11 Nov 2021
Great property report. A must have when purchasing your next property. Thanks Mike
08 Nov 2021

Mike was fantastic! I needed the Building/Pest Inspection done within the week and he was obliging, professional and thorough. I highly recommend him to everyone.
11 Aug 2021
NHI recently completed an inspection on our property for a future buyer. The professionalism, and eye for detail in advising us on his concerns shows true integrity in any property. With this in mind we knew when we found a potential house to buy, NHI were the right people for the & they sure were!! Their level of detail from the initial phone call, on the process of completing the inspection was great. Due to Covid NHI were able to adjust the inspection times to suit our needs and were able to provide a prompt verbal inspection advise to allow us to make an offer. Post the inspection, the level of detail in this report was outstanding [Building and Pest]. Whilst it may seem a grim report due to some many small things potentially requiring attention. We preferred this to allow us to understand if this is the right house or not. Detailed descriptions, photos & recommendations in the PDF doc we top notch A few days later we receive a follow-up call, regarding the reports, did we have any questions & how did we go with the offer on the house. NHI had all the time in the world to provide recommended support in areas i was unsure off. In the end we were successful with the house and cannot thanks NHI enough. We will be sure to pass NHI details onto anyone we know looking for a building or pest inspections.

Getting an inspection through Northern House Inspections was one of the easiest processes I have had to do. From the instant I spoke with Michael, the inspection process was ready to go.

This was the third time I have received a report from Northern House Inspections and the service each time has been impeccable.

I could not be happier with the service from NHI! Mike was such a pleasure to deal with - and just made the process so easy. We used their services for a home that went to auction, and then for the final apartment we purchased. In both occasions Mike worked quickly, efficiently, provided a super clear to understand report and always followed up any questions in more detail over the phone. The price for the services is highly competitive and yet didn’t skimp on anything we needed information on before making an informed offer. It made first home buying much more of a breeze - and will definitely be using again!
23 Dec 2020
Michael was available at shirt notice. I appreciate the concise feedback.
23 Dec 2020
Mike was very efficient in his inspection and communication was extraordinary.

His written review afterwards was incredibly detailed and exactly what we needed. We highly recommend Mike to everyone looking to buy a house. He saved us a lot of money and hardship.
30 May 2020
Terrific job. Mike was recommended to me by a building professional after I bought a house and became suspicious about the original pre-purchase home inspection, which found no major or structural issues. Mike's inspection was very thorough and professional, and he found multiple major and structural flaws with the property. Upsetting to learn, but I'm very grateful to Mike that I now know what I'm dealing with and can take action. In addition, Mike took his time to show me all the issues and explain them carefully, and to answer all my questions. If I ever need another home inspection I'd call Mike again without any hesitation. If I'd called him the first time it would saved me a lot of money and stress.
27 May 2020

10 Nov 2019
Mike made an excellent first impression. He turned up on time, looked at the concerns I had with the property, explained what would need to be done to fix the problems and gave me an estimate on what it would cost go fix. This was all before he even started his inspection. After his inspection he explained how to keep an eye out for leaking showers etc in the bathroom. This is just one example of how he goes the extra mile to help his customers. Overall I found Mike knowledgeable, trustworthy and helpful, and would have no hesitation using his services again or recommending him to others.

I found this business very helpful, friendly, professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Upon completion I received a phone call explaining all the details of the report in a very easy to understand friendly manner and all questions I asked answered and explained. This was followed up by written reports emailed to me that same day. I would not hesitate in recommending this company.
16 Jul 2019
My wife and I recently purchased a house and wanted a building and pest inspection done to be on the safe side. We had doubts about finding someone we could trust until we went through the process with Mike. He was extremely prompt, thorough with the entire process, answered any question we had and was full of helpful information which made us feel very comfortable in that we had made the right decision. Some defects were identified in the building by Mike and he guided us through each one to assist us with making the right decision moving forward. Mike has continued to show support post inspection answering any other questions we had. For anyone looking for a through honest building inspection look no further than Mike from this company.

After searching long, we came across “Northern House Inspections’’. We had to be quick in getting building inspection carried out on a property. Mike was polite, helpful, and very friendly and the inspection was comprehensive and informative. I strongly recommend Mike especially if you are a novice person and first home buyer. The report Mike gave it us was easy to understand. Fast, reliable, and hassle-free service Mike provides. We are definitely going to use Mike service in the future. The best part of Mike is he understands and values client needs and priority and advise them the best solution to get out of the problems. Myself and my wife would like to give heartfelt thanks to Mike once again. Thank you Mike. Merry Christmas!

Excellent explanation and prioritisation of issues found in report. I believe if we didn't get this report we would have been prepared to pay tens of thousands more than we should have for our home. Michael's report gave us the confidence to negotiate. Our agent noted how thorough his check was compared to others she has experienced.

Highly recommended. Michael organised everything, kept me updated and produced a comprehensive report in a really quick turn around. I'm pretty ignorant about construction and really appreciated his thoughts and break down of the report. His help really took the pressure off during a stressful period!

Michael was responsive, courteous and diligent. On short notice, he was able to conduct a thorough inspection of a 3-bedroom house going to auction that weekend. He called to explain the main points in detail over the phone the same day. His report was clear, comprehensive and provided within 24 hours. Highly recommended.
