Who we are

IPI is a new division of the Skybridge Group. IPI help South African Property Buyers avoid the painful lesson of hind sight; whether buying, building or investing, for Peace of Mind, Financial Protection and delivering a Valuable Negotiating Tool, obtaining a Property Inspection Report from an unbiased 3rd party is a must for anyone wishing to make an intelligent decision based on all the facts. At Independent Property Inspectors, “we inspect what you expect”. Our growing national network provide an informed consultation with regards to the vital signs of a property, ahead of what must be seen as inevitable changes in the consumer protection act.

We are good at


Consumer Protection Act

Purchasing a home is an emotional process, in our enthusiasm, lack of knowledge or misplaced trust we find ourselves spending more money than expected on unjustified costly repairs or wasting time and energy on drawn out litigation. Estate agents, developers, landlords or builders will no longer be able to take refuge behind signed legal papers and the “Verstoots clause”.

Estate agents can be held liable for any action which on later investigation could be characterised as dishonest, unfair or misleading in respect to the promotion and sale of a property.

The seller and agent may not withhold any aspects of the property which could be deemed of low or defective quality and/or of questionable value in terms of the price paid.

Any Contracts or documentation which could be deemed difficult to understand or insufficiently explanatory can be determined as void in respect to the sale agreement.

If any latent defects become apparent in the home within six months of its being transferred to the new owner, the seller will, in terms of the new Act, have to remedy them or pay compensation.

"Because buying a property is such a big decision that can have a massive impact on your financial well-being, it is best to go into each transaction fully aware of what you are getting yourself into. Before putting in an offer on any home, consider having the property inspected by a professional who can provide you with a comprehensive list of all the home’s underlying flaws. While a home might be aesthetically pleasing on the surface, it is important to look past that and check the integrity of the components that make up the property to ensure that the purchase won’t end up costing more in the long run,” warns Adrian Goslett.

If you have construction or remodeling experience and you like diagnosing house ailments, then you can give a home buyer sweet dreams--or at least let him know what he's up against--as a home inspector. You'll work mostly for buyers, but also for sellers and with real estate agents, clambering around in attics, crawl spaces and basements, peering at plumbing and electrical components, air conditioning and heating systems, and checking out decks, pools and landscaping elements. You'll then provide a written report or checklist of your findings. In these days when everybody seems to be lawsuit-mad, your service can solve problems before they arise, making the seller and realtor as happy as the buyer. And this business is poised for growth--real estate disclosure laws make inspections more important than ever, and mortgage lending firms and institutions often require inspections before handing out loans. The advantages to this business are that you're always out and about, and you get to see lots of different homes and exercise your mind, solving where-did-that-water-stain-come-from type mysteries. You'll need extensive knowledge of homes and how they work (or don't work)--foundations, walls, floors, roofs, plumbing, electricity, heating and air conditioning. You also must be able to diagnose major-appliance problems; outdoor components like pools, drainage, decks and landscaping; and invisible ailments like radon and lead-based paint. And you should be familiar with building and zoning codes and ordinances in your area. You'll also need people skills to work with high-anxiety home sellers, overanxious home buyers, and real estate agents who may fear your findings will gum up a potentially sealed deal.

Looking forward to meeting you
