Why You Need a Pre Purchase Building Inspection before You Buy
You might get lucky if you don't get a Pre Purchase Building Inspection done before you buy your home. However, chances are that the home you buy will have some defects. Some of these defects may be relatively minor but some may cost you thousands of dollars to repair.
The reasons for a Pre Purchase Building Inspection is so you know about all major defects, structural defects, safety hazards as well as any minor defects. In fact, it is very rare for any home not to have any defects.
What is more common is that every home has at least one defect that requires repair to avoid any further damage. It could be something as simple as a damaged roof tile that is allowing water in when it rains.
We provide three types of pre purchase inspections:
