Why Do you Need a Pre Auction Building Inspection?

Pre auction building inspections are the same as pre purchase building inspections. However, with pre auction inspections you need to get your report completed BEFORE auction day.

This is due to the fact that most auction conditions are NOT usually conditional upon you obtaining a satisfactory building and pest inspection. Once you have made the winning bid it is too late. This means you may end up with a property that will have 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.

With reports starting from a low $450 (inc GST), it is well worth it for your peace of mind.

What is a Pre Auction Building Inspection Report?

It is a report that outlines anything from major structural defects (eg cracked walls)  to smaller defects (eg leaking taps).

Our pre purchase auction report is designed in an easy to read format. This way you have the peace of mind that you are not be exposed any unexpected costs relating to your new home that you purchase at auction.

It is important to remember that just because a house looks great doesn't mean that all is ok. A lot of defects are hidden. Defects that take an expert to uncover.

Worse still, some owners actually try to cover up defects by repainting walls or even locking rooms so you can't do a full inspection. Don't worry, as we are aware of all the tactics used and will uncover any defects being hidden.

Within 24 hours (or even soon if required) you will receive a detailed building inspection report with photos outlining any issues with the property. This means you will be well prepared before you turn up at auction day.
