      Many inspectors restrict their inspection to the apartment itself but Dominic went beyond and reviewed my strata report and inspected the common areas of the building. He has specific knowledge of multi-unit buildings and strata in general. Dominic communicated with me following each stage, clearly and concisely so that any concerns I had were alleviated. Thanks,

      After months of investigating options to assist in prioritising the many maintenance and upgrade tasks required around my home, I found Dominic! Professional and efficient, within minutes of arriving Dominic was telling me what was important to rectify before I had already pulled out my list. The jobs I have completed so far have been completed by Dominic recommended trades people. He doesn't just recommend, he helps them to understand the work required, checks quotes and the finished result. He supports both the trades and his clients. It is great to be part of such a collaboration and definitely less stressful than going it alone.

      Like everyone else, I had a great experience with Access Property Services. Dominic did a pre purchase inspection of an Art Deco apartment I was hoping to buy. Thankfully, he rated it 8.5/10! Dominic keeps it real, is honest, and is super responsive (even at odd hours of the day!) He also has a good sense of humour! His report is comprehensive, and includes photos with notes on works/ repairs needed. He will recommend tradesmen, where needed. If you require this service, you will not be disappointed with Dominic btw .. check out his bio! Amazing!

      Thanks Dom for fitting me in at short notice, wrangling with the real estate to get access to the property so you could do the inspection, talking me through issues and providing a thorough report. Steered me in the right direction in a couple of areas. Appreciate your no nonsense approach and thoughtful respect of my particular circumstances. Highly recommended!

      It was great to have Dominic's assistance to undertake a building inspection of our home prior to putting it on the market. It was a comfort to know there were no major concerns that might reduce the value of the sale or give a prospective buyer a bargaining chip down the road. It also gave us an opportunity to decide which minor fixups we wanted to address ahead of selling. Look no further for all your building consult needs!

      Dominic at APBI empowered us with an incredible amount of detailed information to understand the issues and potential repair costs of a property we were considering on purchasing. He has a friendly and no nonsense approach and we feel lucky to have had his expertise and calm logic during a stressful time. Thank you Dominic!

      Dominic is a highly experienced professional inspector, who knows the building industry inside out. He altered his schedule for me to do an inspection on an apartment very quickly so that I could make an offer and take it off the market. His report was thorough, and he was able to give me a good summary of the overall state of the construction quality. The process of buying an apartment in a bigger building is very stressful, I was almost tearing my hair out after reading the 685 page strata report and trying to decipher whether any of the faults listed were minor or major. I didn't want to make a big mistake and regret it in 10 years time. Luckily Dominic was able to give me his expert opinion in record time and I was able to have peace of mind that I'm buying a good property. I can't recommend Dominic and Access Property Services highly enough.

      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
