    "DO NOT USE CAPITAL HOME INSPECTIONS! Adam Mitchinson. I purchased a Khandallah home Adam was commissioned to complete a pre-purchase inspection on. Adam missed (i.e. didn't capture & document in his report) over a dozen major issues ranging in medium to severe from a water ingress perspective. These included but were not limited to; a totally rotten and decayed away 20 cm section of box corner that manifested itself as water feature down the kitchen wall after moving in, ruining wall paper, gib and flooding the kitchen bench & floor. Other not captured faults included, damp rotting framing, box corners fitted hard onto the roofing iron so water couldn't pass underneath causing rot, numerous areas of rotten weather board and barge boards that had been painted over by the vendor in 2016, inadequate & incorrectly installed flashing causing more rot, swollen damp MDF window sills....and unfortunately more. Adam visited my property at my invitation to discuss my concerns and accepted he had a liability to assist me in the required remedial action and would get back me. 10 days after no response and my request for feedback he directed me to his lawyer. Adam's lawyers advised me Adam had no liability to me for the reports accuracy as it was not a weather tightness report. At the time I received this communication from his legal representative I also found out Adam had closed his website and shut his company down. I strongly advise you DO NOT use Adam Mitchinson 'Capital Hone Inspections' or any other company he decides to form in coming weeks. I'm currently still in the process of costing all the remedial work and its going to be many 10's of thousands of dollars. Very disappointed in Adams lack of integrity and failure to stand behind the quality of his work. Please if you are presented a building report Adam Mitchinson prepared I urge you to seek a 2nd opinion as I do not want anyone else to end up in the position I'm in now."

    "Adam was very professional, seemed to have very good knowledge, and as well as the written report was happy to give me a verbal run-down as I followed him around the property. Recommended."

    "Adam was great to deal with. he was straightforward, very informative and delivered the goods when he said he would.

    From the first phone call he was very professional and didn't pressure me into anything.

    The report he delivered was to a high standard and written in plain English which made it very easy to understand for someone who knows nothing of buildings."

    "Capital Home Inspections was excellent and I'd recommend them.

    Adam was very professional, he made the process really easy and the turnaround time was quick. The building report was in-depth and thorough and included photographs and detailed assessment of the property."
