A pre-purchase building inspection is one of the most important inspections to have conducted when looking at purchasing a property, don’t risk your financial investment & call us today to help you make an informed decision.

What is a Pre-purchase Building Inspection?

A pre-purchase building inspection is a visual inspection of the property which includes a comprehensive written report of all the accessible areas inspected stating the condition of the property along with supporting images where possible.

For example, our building inspector will note down all the observed defects found during the inspection, including any items that might require maintenance or repairs, and mainly anything that is a major concern or a safety issue found at the property.

Apart from the above mentioned, there are other items which are also included in the pre purchase 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?

Having a pre-purchase building inspection report can also help you negotiate the property purchase price, as 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.

It is highly recommended that a building inspection report be combined with a pest inspection report for your peace of mind when buying a home.
