What is a Pre Purchase Building Inspection?
A pre purchase building inspection provides a detailed, easy to read report, that tells you about the major faults a home has.

It is recommended by Consumers Affairs Victoria that you consider engaging a qualified building inspector to make sure all faults are found. This includes one where attempts have been made to cover them up!
