Pre Purchase Building Inspections Melbourne
It is very important to conduct a pre-purchase building inspection and termite inspection before finalizing a property. In fact, we recommend all our clients to make it a condition while buying the house since this can save you thousands of dollars.
We highlight all the defects that we come across and also mention how the defects can be rectified If there is any particular issue that the clients are concerned about, we recommend discussing this with our inspector prior to the inspection process.
If you are not present at the inspection our inspector will give you a call to discuss the condition of the property and answer all your questions.
An experienced building inspector will complete a thorough and extensive inspection of the property both externally and internally to identify if there are any major structural defects, or any other issues, and document these with photos.
Where access is possible, the Sub Floor and Roof Space will also be inspected, along with a comprehensive maintenance check, and an estimated cost required for any necessary repairs.
We also focus on wet areas, to check for any dampness issues, or leaking. At no extra charge, we can also offer any building advice you may require such as in regards to renovation plans, or remove walls.
termite trails in sub-floor-how would you now they are there?
We do a visual inspection, of all electrical and plumbing, and test for water pressure, drainage, water hammer, as well as checking the safety switch and any old electrical wiring. We can also advise if there may be asbestos present in any material used in the property.
If any issues are found, it is recommended to engage a licensed plumber or electrician to further investigate, and provide more qualified advice. Please let us know in advance if you have any concerns, or requests about your property, to ensure that the inspectors are fully aware of the issue.
