Happy to have found your dream home the Melbourne suburb of Murrumbeena? Getting yourself ready for auction day? But are you confident enough? Is your dream house or potential investment property in as good a condition as it looks?
Why it's Important to Have a Pre Purchase Building Inspection
It is always worthwhile to have a building inspection undertaken. This includes when you are looking to buy in the Melbourne suburb of Murrumbeena. Given how expensive it is to buy a new home, getting a building inspection is only a small cost. However, this small cost could save you thousands in unexpected repair costs.
As well, most people don't know that the seller is under no obligation to let you know about any structural defects the house has. Unfortunately this means you could end up with a home with a lot of costly structural damage that is not covered by insurance.
These are just some of the reasons why a pre purchase building inspection is very important.
All our Murrumbeena Pre 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 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 ensure all faults are found. This includes one where attempts have been made to cover them up!
