TESTIMONIALS

My wife and I consider an analysis of the body corporate operation and strata plan details to be a critical element of due diligence when purchasing a unit.  A colleague referred the Holmes Strata Inspection Reports service to us.  We commissioned a Holmes Report for each unit we seriously considered.  The reports provided an independent comprehensive factual assessment of the building and unit and importantly were provided in a timely way.  We would not purchase a unit without the benefit of the Strata and Body Corporate report.  It is clearly value for money, assisting the decision to purchase or not and the offer to make.
