1) DEFECTS INSPECTION FOR NEW, RESALE, RENTAL & RENOVATED PROPERTIES
Absolute Inspection can conduct comprehensive assessments on your property, including:
- Inspections for newly TOP projects
- Pre-purchase inspections of resale properties
- Post-renovation inspections
- Pre-tenancy and Post-tenancy inspections for rental properties
We will identify defects and unacceptable workmanship finishes within three specific fields – architecture, mechanical (plumbing) and electrical systems. Our findings, which are based on the quality standards adopted by BCA and the industry, will be documented and used to initiate the rectification process by the builder. Once rectification is done, our inspector will inspect your property to ensure all rectification works are done satisfactorily and according to the prevailing quality standards.

2) DISPUTE RESOLUTION ON CONSTRUCTION & RENOVATION WORKMANSHIP
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is a professional body promoting and enforcing the highest international standards in the valuation, management and development of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure.
Absolute Inspection is qualified to provide the following consultancy services:
Phase 1: Pre-Purchase Appraisal – Impartial site assessment and validation of existing interior conditions to help you gauge the magnitude of renovation / rectification works required. The last thing you want is to be ill-prepared for the cost and time involved to move into your new space, caused by unknown defects or the approval required for certain works. We flag out early the various factors which will deter your objectives in getting the space.
Phase 2: Validation of other IDs’ Quotations and Proposals – Not sure if your appointed contractors or designers are giving you the best deal / advice? We can evaluate the quotations and proposals you received from others and provide you a neutral second opinion. We strongly believe a home is only complete when it is designed and constructed to be functional and appropriate for your lifestyle.
Phase 3: Independent Review and Expert Witness Services – Should you have disputes with or do not agree with the quality of work completed by your appointed designer, we are able to act as neutral party to provide an independent assessment on the reasonable-ness and quality of works done.
3) BCA PERIODIC INSPECTION OF BUILDINGS
All buildings in Singapore, except for detached, semi-detached, terraced or linked houses which are used for residential purposes and temporary buildings, need to be inspected at regular intervals by structural engineers in accordance to Section 28 of the Building Control Act.
Such inspections ensure that structural defects due to lack of maintenance can be detected and rectified early to keep buildings structurally sound for continued occupation. Through such inspections, appropriate measures can be taken to prevent further deterioration.
Besides inspecting your building for structural defects, our structural engineers will be able to assist with the purchase of your building’s structural layout plans from BCA.

Absolute Inspection offers waterproofing services to solve water leakage issues, including ceiling leakage, leaking bathrooms, balcony, floors, etc. As part of our waterproofing service, we also provide waterproofing consultancy including thermographic scanning, diagnosis and problem solving for water leakage issues. This is often accompanied by site visits and rectification proposals.
