Why it's Important to Have a Pre Purchase Building Inspection Melbourne

For complete peace of mind you really must have a building inspection undertaken.

This is especially true as most people don't know that the seller is under no obligation to let you know about any structural defects the house may have. That is why a pre purchase building inspection is very important. This is because it helps avoid unexpected repair costs.

All our Melbourne Purchase Building Inspections meet the Australian Standard AS4349.1-2007. This means you are sure that we have the skills and expertise to undercover the worst and most costly damage a property can have. Better yet, we even uncover damage, where attempts are made to cover it up!

What is a Pre Purchase Pest Inspection Melbourne?

It is not commonly known that you only need 2mm for common timber pests (such as termites) to gain access to a property. This is all it takes for pests to cause extensive damage. As well, most people don't know that their home insurance is limited in such circumstances.

 

This is because it is unlikely they will cover the cost of repairing your home if pests were present before purchase. As a result, it is essential that a pre purchase pest inspection is undertaken before you buy.

 

That is why we specialise in providing pre purchase pest inspections for all suburbs of Melbourne. When All Checked Out provide pre purchase pest inspections our reports are on all types of pests. Types of common pests include termites, borers and fungal decay. This way you are fully informed before you make the decision to buy your property in Melbourne.

Why do you need a Pre Auction Inspection?

pre auction building inspections melbournePre auction building inspections re the same as pre  purchase building inspections. However, you need to make sure you get your pre auction report completed before auction day.

This is because most auctions are NOT usually conditional upon you obtaining a satisfactory building and pest inspection. Once you have made the winning bid it it is too late.  Even if you get a building and inspection report before settlement that highlights lots of problems with the property  it is too late. As a result you could end up with a lot of unexpected repair costs. This is especially true as the seller is under no obligation to let you know about any structural defects the property may have.
