What Is A Pre Purchase Building Inspection?
A pre purchase building inspection provides a detailed, easy to read report. It tells you about the major faults a home has. The faults highlighted include any cracking walls, rising damp, leaking roofs and safety hazards. In addition, it also highlights any unauthorised works.
It is recommended by Consumers Affairs Victoria that you engage a qualified building inspector. This is to ensure that all faults in a home are uncovered. In addition, it will help uncover where attempts have even been made to cover faults up!

Why Do You Need A Building Inspection Before You Buy
You might get lucky if you don’t get a 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. Worryingly, some may cost you thousands of dollars to repair. Some may even require you to knock down structures.
The reasons to have an inspection are clear. It makes sure you know about all defects. This includes major defects, structural defects, safety hazards as well as any minor defects.
It is common that every home has at least one defect that requires repair to avoid any further damage. A defect could be something as simple as a damaged roof tile that is allowing water in when it rains. However, it can be as serious as termite damage to the foundation of the house. That’s why it is essential to know what is wrong with a home before you buy.
