Pears inspectors have assessed billions of dollars of properties across Northern New South Wales, Western Australia, Queensland and Indonesia (Bali). Our inspectors have specialist training in the inspection and reporting of building defects, concentrating on Building Pathology and Building Forensics. Our expert knowledge of building materials and building methods is combined with decades of experience in how buildings fail over time, not just what is expected of them at construction.


Pears has implemented a quality management system which conforms to the requirements of both the Australian and International Standard AS/NZ ISO 9001:2008.


Raymond Pears is an active member of Standards Australia Technical Committee BD-085 “Inspection of buildings” that wrote and manages the AS 4349 suite of Standards covering building and timber pest inspections. Raymond represented the Institute of Building Inspectors Inc. at Standards Australia and was the Founder and inaugural President of the Institute of Building Inspectors.

Your calls will be answered by Annet Pears who has decades of customer service (as well as on-site inspections in her own right) and she will make your enquiry a pleasurable beginning to what we believe is the best customer service experience in Australia.

You can call us for pre-purchase building inspections in thorough Australia including Casuarina, Pottsville, Byron Bay, Northern Rivers, Perth and Kingscliff Area.

If you need to speak with the Inspector, Raymond & Scott will make the time, every time.

Ray and Annet

Thank you very much for the extra time and care you invested yesterday.

Buying a home that we hope to live in with our family as it grows, is part of an exciting adventure,
however, it is filled with some apprehension of the unknown.

Having you go above and beyond in answering our numerous inquiries, on top of what was obviously a very thorough inspection, provided us with the reassurance we were after.
