Our History

Over thirty years ago, our founder Peter Middeldorp started his career as a licenced carpenter.  As a carpenter he worked on a wide variety of projects including heritage renovations as well as more contemporary buildings, small commercial properties, building extensions as well as building residential homes.  From there he moved on to become a qualified building supervisor.

Throughout his career, Peter saw first-hand the disappointment suffered by so many people who had not commissioned professional property inspections before buying their homes, when costly problems started to appear in their new homes. So in the mid 1990’s, using his expertise and experience, he launched Buy Safe Building Inspections Adelaide to focus on carrying out home inspections and being able to provide detailed and comprehensive advice to home buyers and homeowners.

Personalised Service

Peter conducts all building inspections personally, and as Adelaide local, he uses his experience and sound knowledge of the local natural environment and state building codes to provide you with reliable information and advice.  He will meet with you at the site at the end of the inspection to offer you a verbal report when he can highlight any major structural problems so that you can see them for yourself. 

This also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and for Peter to answer your concerns, offer advice and solutions as well as give repair and maintenance cost estimates.  If you're not available for a face to face meeting, this can be done over the phone.

You will then be provided with Peter's independent, detailed, photographic report which is accurate, easy to understand, honest and thorough.


Our inspections comply with the Australian Standards AS 4349 for property inspections of residential buildings.

Peter’s builders licence is # GL 36318 and he is a member of the MBA (Master Builders Association).
