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.

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. This includes any cracking walls, rising damp, leaking roofs and safety hazards. In addition, it also highlight any unauthorised works.
It is recommended by Consumers Affairs Victoria that you consider engaging a qualified building inspector. This is to ensure that all faults in a home are uncovered. This includes one where attempts have been made to cover them up!

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.
That is why we specialise in providing pre purchase pest inspections for 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.
Within 24 hours (or even soon if required) you will receive a detailed report with photos outlining any issues with the property. The following are the areas we inspect when we perform a pest inspection:
- Roof void
- Interior of building
- Exterior of building
- Sub floor area
All pest inspections comply with Australian Standard 4349.3-2010 and will identify any evidence of timber pests (including termites) as well as other pests - such as rodents. We will also report on conditions in the property that could cause an infestation of pests in the future.
Pre Purchase Building & Pest Inspection Melbourne
If you want complete peace of mind before you make the decision to buy, then we recommend both a building and pest inspection. This is especially true as building defects can lead to pest infestations.
