Pre Purchase Building Inspections Melbourne

It is a major decision to buy a new home (both financially and emotionally). That is why it is so important to obtain a pre purchase building inspection report BEFORE you buy your new home in Melbourne

It is the only way that you are assured of not getting unexpected repair costs after you purchase. This is especially true as the seller is not required to let you know about any structural defects that the property may have. Also, you can't assume that your home insurance will cover the cost of repairs - as often they won't.

What is a Pre purchase 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 building 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.

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.

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 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.
