Building Inspections

buying a homeWhy do you need a pre-purchase building inspection?

A Pre-purchase Building Inspection and report is a useful tool obtained prior to the final purchase of a building in that it can assess the structural stability and integrity of your proposed purchase.

Joint inspections with you can be arranged at a convenient time if the existing owner is agreeable.

The Pre-Purchase Building Report may tell you many things about your proposed purchase that you may not have noticed, placing you in a more confident position to proceed with the purchase.

Why do you need a pre-sale building inspection?
If you are selling your home, an independent pre-sale building report, available to interested buyers when they visit your home, may help them decide your home is the one to buy.

The report may also save time at transfer as in that you may have rectified the problems and thus eliminated some time delays in settlement, for example if a leaky shower is found by us it can be readily repaired and certified prior to people assessing your building.
