Business Franchise Australia



Jim’s Building Inspections has recently launched in Western Australia and Senaka Daluwatta from Riverton is one of the State’s first franchisees.

Senaka, a graduate in Quantity Surveying and Post Graduate Diploma holder in Construction Project Management, has over 20 years of experience in building and construction industry.

His extensive experience in construction projects as a Contracts Administrator and also knowledge of building technology, codes and standards is well suited to the building inspection industry.

Senaka is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor and an Associate Member of Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors. He is also a Registered Tax Agent and runs his own practice specialising in Tax Depreciation and Capital Allowances for residential and commercial investment properties.

He offers a wide range of house inspections services that range from basic, cost efficient Pre-purchase Building Inspections to Premium Building Inspections (which incorporates a Licensed Plumber, Electrician, Building Inspection and more to give the client total piece of mind when purchasing a new home).

Jim’s Building Inspections seemed like the perfect fit for someone with my skills and experience. They provided me with all the training and equipment I need and are there to support me if required – but so far I have hit the ground running and feel confident that this will be a success.”

Senaka plans to grow his business over the next few years and his ambition is to be Western Australia’s ‘very best franchisee’.

Senaka is looking forward to working with local real estate agents, conveyancers and mortgage brokers to ensure that people can make informed decisions about the properties they are planning on buying, building or renovating.

“Whether you are buying or selling real estate the importance of property inspections is paramount in a smooth transaction. For a buyer, a pre-purchase building inspection report is used to ensure that the property is in good condition and does not have any major defects that may affect the property’s value or cost money to rectify in the future. For a seller, providing a pre-sale building report is always a good idea. It demonstrates transparency and honesty on the seller’s behalf and means that prospective buyers don’t have to order and pay for one separately, often at the last minute. Some buyers may still wish to request an independent report, but that is their decision.”
