      Regis Towers Sydney

      The unfortunate events at Regis Towers, one of Sydney’s newest and biggest apartment blocks started to unfold in January when Beryl Hardy Nisbett decided to sell. Things might have remained hidden for longer if the couple who wanted to buy her apartment hadn’t insisted on bringing along a building inspector. The inspector produced a 16-page report which concluded that “reasonable habitation of the unit would be extremely difficult”.

      Moreover the inspector, Dominic Ogburn, determined that the problems in the Meriton development were unlikely to be isolated. There were, after all, 554 other residential units in the three Castlereagh Street, Pitt Street and Campbell Street buildings that make up the block.

      “We strongly recommend that a comprehensive building survey be undertaken on the common areas by the owners’ corporation, not least of which to identify similar incomplete unit-separating walls and defective external render”       – The Sydney Morning Herald

      I recently employed Dominic at Access Property Services to inspect a newly acquired house. He was highly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very approachable. He was very thorough in his inspection and helped us to prioritise jobs to prepare our home for living. He also provided us with recommendations of highly skilled trades people specific to the jobs needed.
      He is easily contactable, his response and report swift, and advocates for his clients very strongly. I highly recommend Dominic and will definitely employ him should the need arise in the future. Blue ribbon and 5 gold stars!! Thank you Dominic!!

      Dominic recently undertook a prepurchase inspection of a flat in Ashfield for me. At short notice he provided a really thorough assessment of the condition, compliance against various building codes and an understanding minimum requirements for rectification. His report (which
      raised some red flags) in conjunction with the findings in the strata report meant I have not proceeded with this property. Definitely glad to have been fully informed and have no doubt will use Dominic again.

      I highly recommend Dominic!! Dominic assessed leak issues with my kitchen & bathroom windows in my unit end of November 2021. I found Access Property via a Google search. I received an instant reply, which is uncommon. I was most impressed by Dominic's technical
      knowledge and his ability to explain problems in my language. I received the building report very quickly and it described the exact issues and recommended solutions. I wouldn't hesitate to use Dominic again in the future.

      Dominic inspected an old Victorian property for us in Summer Hill and pointed out some rising damp issues with the house which made us reassess whether we should put an offer in for the house. My partner and I have no building experience so we wouldn't have noticed many of the issues Dominic mentioned regarding the house. He saved us tens of thousands in repairs and a lot of heartache!

      Dominic came to the rescue when I was looking to buy an apartment but was unsure of the quality of the build. He was super responsive and was able to do the inspection at very short notice. The report was thorough with details of things I would never even think to look at (such as dust in the vent fans) and told me how to know if they had been fixed properly. I cannot thank him enough and would recommend him to my friends and would have no hesitation to use him again in the future.

      Highly recommend this company for Building Inspections. My husband's construction business has worked with Dominic for the past 10 years and has always found his work to be of the highest standard with a level of attention to detail that you won't find elsewhere in Sydney. If you want peace of mind, you've found the right person in Dom for building inspections.

      We couldn’t recommend Dominic enough! His communication was excellent. He was regularly available at short notice to complete inspections on properties we thought we wanted to move quickly on. He was extremely honest in his appraisals and went to extra lengths to make sure he had thoroughly inspected the properties we were looking at. We finally found the right house for us and we couldn’t have done it without Dominic.I have recommended him to our closest friends and they were all very happy with his inspections. Feel assured you are getting a trustworthy inspection on your property before you buy.

      Professionally I've not met a business with more integrity and high standards. They expect excellence and will not compromise. This is a typical in the industry and represents exceptional value where quality is increasingly a mystery to many trades.

      Fantastic service from a reputable builder with vast experience and knowledge. We have engaged Access Property numerous times over the last 28 years. Extremely happy with the thorough and meticulous building reports we have received.

      Dominic inspected my new property and I was overwhelmed with how professional he was, how thorough he was and how inclusive his report was. His report covered everything including photos of the defects with an explanation for each. I would never buy a property again without having it inspected by a credible building inspector.

      I cannot recommend Dominic highly enough. We engaged him twice to inspect properties we were interested in buying (nervous first time home buyers), and he delivered above and beyond. Not only did Dominic do a thorough job with the inspection itself, he also made time to ensure my partner and I understood the next steps we could take to address the minor defects he spotted. He is trustworthy, and from our dealings with him, it's clear that Dominic takes professional integrity seriously and key to that is placing the interest of his clients at the top of his list. We would gladly engage Dominic again, if we ever have to.

      We were looking to bid on an older (fixer upper) property in Sydney's Inner West and wanted to make an informed decision on whether to purchase a property and the risk associated. We had particular concerns and questions about the property, and after speaking to a number of potential inspectors realised that Dominic offered a service and professional building construction insight that the others didn't. Domonic's pre-purchase building report and recommendations were extremely thorough. He was also more than willing to explain items of concern in layman's turns which left us feeling well informed and confident. If you're serious about wanting to obtain detailed information on what may arguably be one of the most expensive investments you make at the time, don't skimp. For us, Dominic's report exceeded its $ value. And we can't recommend him enough.

      I have known Dominic and Access Property Building Inspections for over 20 years. In that time my wife and I have bought a lot of property and APBI is the only business I would trust to do a property inspection.With a $1m+ investment, you must have complete faith and trust in the competence and ability of the business you engage to undertake your building inspection. It is, when all's said and done, the only opportunity you'll have to uncover any problems, avoid a massive and costly mistake, or have the chance to negotiate the sale in full knowledge of what has been found. When it comes to off-plan pre-settlement, you definitely need to call APBI - there is noone in Australia with the level of knowledge and skill required for this critical stage of your purchase. Put your property transaction in safe hands - do yourself a massive favour - call APBI for your property inspection. Do NOT settle for anything else.
