What is a Pre-purchase Building Inspection?
Apre-purchase building inspection is a visual inspection of the property from top to bottom. It includes a comprehensive written building inspection report of all the accessible areas inspected stating the condition of the property, along with supporting images where possible.
Our pre-purchase building inspector will observe and assess all visible parts of the property. They will note down all observed defects found during the inspection, including any items that might require maintenance or repairs. If anything is found to be a major concern or a safety issue, they will document it in detail and provide you with advice to get the issue fixed.
Apart from the above mentioned, there are other items that are also included in the pre-purchase building inspection report, such as a general description of the building and information on repair costs if defects are found and if this is requested by the purchaser.
Why is a Pre-purchase Building Inspection Important?
Many people don’t realise that having a pre-purchase building inspection report can also help you negotiate the property purchase price. If there are any problems found during the inspection, which usually the owner does not have a clue about, then this will allow you to negotiate a possibly lower purchase price due to the defects found. This could potentially save you thousands of dollars off the purchase price hence helping you to be able to afford the repair costs which come with the property.
Buying a property typically represents by far one of the biggest investments most Australians will ever make. Such significant transactions require thorough inspections, this will ensure not only are you getting a good deal but you’re buying the right property.
