Why you need building and pest inspections:
- To negotiate a lower price for the property
- To request a repair or improvement on the property
- To get specialist advice on an investment
- To ensure the safety of the occupants of the property
- To obtain peace of mind when making a purchase
Why Have an Inspection by a Qualified Builder?
Before investing in a property, it is best to have a home inspection by a registered builder like those at A1 Home Inspections. A registered builder has the experience of dealing with not just the inspection phase but also the construction phase. They are often able to use this experience to identify issues that others may not.
Types of Inspections:
- Pre-Purchase Structural Inspections
- Timber Pest Inspection
- Dilapidation Inspections
- Under Construction Inspections
- Strata Inspections
- Investigation Inspections
- Builder Indemnity Inspections
- Handover Inspections
Yes this is called a pre-sale inspection. Those who don’t like surprises believe it can be money well spent to have an independent inspection before listing a property for sale. This inspection gives the seller confidence in their listing price and can be used in collaboration with the pre-purchase inspection to satisfy the requirements of both parties.
Under Construction Inspections can be performed at any stage of the building process to make sure the builder is adhering to Australian Standards. It is also possible to prepare a series of inspections as critical stages of the construction phase are reached.
Typically for strata schemes and company title properties, the inspector assesses the interior and immediate exterior of the unit for sale. A special property report can be organised for a buyer who wants to know the condition of other common property areas.
