Pre-purchase Property Inspections

Following our building inspection report, you can either proceed with buying the property, renegotiate the purchase price, or back out

We want you to be able to buy with confidence and have peace of mind when it comes to purchasing a property. A pre-purchase property inspection which includes a termite inspection is a must for this reason. It’s the biggest investment of your life, you don’t want to buy a dud.

Having a satisfactory pre-purchase building report, completed by a qualified building inspector, should be a condition of your contract.

Our pre-purchase property inspections allow you to make an informed decision about the property and is a smart financial decision as it can save you thousands of dollars in expensive repairs. Following our building inspection report, you can either proceed with buying the property, renegotiate the purchase price, or back out if any major defects are found.

We can provide you with both a pre-purchase building inspection and a termite/pest inspection on the same day, with a detailed report sent to you within 24 hours. This has many advantages over using two companies to do both:

  • Considerable Savings
  • One point of contact: Book once and pay once
  • Only one inspection required.

We invite our clients to attend the inspection at which time the building and pest inspector will provide you with a verbal assessment of the property at the completion of the inspection.

Pre Purchase Building Inspections
If you are purchasing a residential house or any other property anywhere in Australia it is essential to know the true condition of that property.

A pre-purchase building inspection is a visual appraisal of the condition of a property that identifies existing issues, from minor defects or areas of concern, to major structural defects. However, it is not a warranty against future defects or structural issues.

This inspection is carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.1

If there are particular parts of the property that you are specifically concerned with, for example, plumbing, electrical or swimming pool etc., you may wish to also engage a specialist in the required field in addition to the pre-purchase building inspection.

What does a building inspection include?
Our experiened, fully licenced inspectors will conduct a thorough inspection of all accessible areas of the property, including:

Interior of the building
The exterior of the building
Roof space
Under-floor space
Roof exterior (subject to health and safety regulations)
Garage, carport and garden shed
Separate laundry or toilet
Small retaining walls (ie. non-structural)
Steps, fencing, paths and driveways

Our inspectors recommend that attend the inspection so that they can show you any areas of concern and answer any questions you may have.

Timber Pest Inspection

A timber pest inspection is an essential part of any property transaction, with many regions in Australia providing prime conditions for termites. Repairing termite damage can be costly and can also impact on the safety of the structure if the termite infestation was/is rampant.

The timber pest inspection is a visual inspection of the accessible areas of the property to detect evidence of active termites and/or termite damage. In addition to this, the inspector will also identify conditions that are conducive to termite attack, and whether or not a current termite management system is in place.

Your inspector will check the interior and exterior of the property including accessible roof cavities, roof void and sub-floor areas.

The findings of the inspection will then be noted in your pest report which will be issued via email the following morning, including any recommendations for suitable termite treatments.

The property inspection is carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.3

Inspections take around 1-2 hours depending on the size of the property in question, and whether our inspector can access all areas.

The cost of a pre-purchase building and pest inspection varies depending on your location and the size of the property, however if you visit our pricing page you will be able to get an estimate. Getting a combined building and pest inspection provides the best value as opposed to getting individual building and pest inspectors.

We encourage you to attend the inspection so that the inspector can show and discuss with you any areas of concern, and so you can ask the inspector any questions you may have about the property.

We know there are time limits involved so we endeavour to provide our clients with their comprehensive report via email within 24 hours of your inspection!
