You wouldn’t let someone without a licence drive your car, so don’t take any risks when it comes to a building inspection.

My jaw dropped when I heard you can be a building inspector without being a licensed builder — and I’m sure I’m not alone. The good news? House Inspect Australia is determined to give you what you deserve when it comes to your biggest investment.

Mama of two, Litsa Adamou works alongside her partner in life and business, Barney, and with their business associate, Mike Pearl, they’re the backbone of House Inspect Australia. Founded by Mike eight years ago, House Inspect Australia is a proudly South Australian owned and operated business with a branch in New South Wales. This kick-ass queen is a qualified building inspector holding a current builder’s licence, and she’s more than breaking the glass ceiling — she’s shattering it.

“Currently, you don’t need to be a licensed builder to be an inspector, but we know that’s what you need. All ourinspectors hold a builder’s licence and qualifications, so they’re experts at telling you what’s right and wrong with a property. When so much weighs on that advice, it’s vital to get it right!” Litsa explains.

House Inspect Australia knows the areas they operate in like the back of their hand. They can tell you exactly how specific weather, terrain and locally or commonly sourced building materials can affect the quality of a build. “You want to make sure someone knows what they’re talking about — it could make or break your sale or purchase of a home, investment or business. That’s a big deal!” Litsa says.
