Building Inspection and Report
An essential part of purchasing a new property is the
Building Inspection and Report! Don’t let yourself invest in a property that
you’re not 100% sure is problem free. A Pre Purchase Building Inspection (also
known as a Building Inspection and Property Report) will identify and comment
on any issues related to the structure of a property.
A high quality building inspection can save you thousands of dollars in the way of unseen problems that might require repairing or replacing, and often these defects or building errors are lurking in hard to reach areas! Gaining a comprehensive overview of any property that you’re looking at purchasing also puts you in a better negotiating position as well.

You might think that a newly constructed home will be
without defects but unfortunately people like cutting corners which could
result in a serious structural issue within new homes. A pre purchase building
inspection and report becomes even more important if you’re buying an
established home that’s been around for a while, negligence can lead to severe
deterioration of a home. A small issue like a cracked tile can result in a lot
of damage down the line if it isn’t identified and addressed or more severely a
crack in the actual concrete or brickwork which can escalate to massive costs
It goes without saying that it is therefore essential to
have a thorough Building Inspection and Report conducted on any prospective
property purchase. A comprehensive report should address the following areas:
Exterior of Roof
Carport, Garage and Outbuildings/Sheds
Non-Structural Retaining Walls
Fences, Pathways, Driveways and Steps/Stairs
The purpose of a good building inspection and report is to:
Identify any issues pertaining to the buildings
on the property
Warn the buyer of these issues and highlight how
they should be addressed (if applicable)
Don’t let yourself be caught unaware by hidden damages or
structural deficiencies in your future home!
