Detailed Inspections for Residential Properties

When buying a new home, it’s crucial to have the property inspected by an expert. A thorough inspection can identify any major defects that may not be immediately apparent. This ensures the safety of the home for you and your family. Conducting an inspection is essential in understanding the property’s condition before making a purchase decision, as unknown issues can result in costly repairs down the line.

Our building inspector will identify major defects and potential future issues, even those that the owner has attempted to hide to sell the property. We can also provide you with an estimate of the repair costs for these major defects. The inspection involves a visual assessment of the property to determine its general condition at the time of inspection.

Thorough Examination of the Building Structure

Inspection of the property exterior: The inspector check for any signs of damage or wear that could affect the structural integrity of the property.

Inspection of the property interior: The inspector will search for indicators of moisture or water damage, detect cracks or other structural problems, identify pest infestations, and identify any concerns that may affect the safety and livability of the property.

Examination of the electrical and plumbing systems: The inspector will search for visible signs of deterioration, damage, or potential safety risks like exposed wiring or leaks.

Inspection Report

After the inspection, a comprehensive report will be given to the property owner or buyer. It will provide details on any identified issues or defects and may include suggestions for repairs or maintenance. Our thorough inspection report will give you a clear understanding of the property’s condition, pointing out any issues that may affect your decision to purchase. With this knowledge, you can negotiate confidently and make well-informed investment choices. Don’t take the chance of buying a property without an inspection.

Common property inspection issues

Asbestos: Before purchasing or renovating older homes in Sydney, it is crucial to have a professional inspect the property for asbestos. This is because asbestos can pose a risk if not handled properly.

Structural issues: Sydney has recently experienced extreme weather conditions that can damage building structures. Buyers should inspect for signs of foundation problems, cracks in walls or floors, and other structural issues.

Pest infestations: Pests like termites can cause severe property damage that may not be initially visible. Buyers should watch for signs of pest activity, such as droppings, wood shavings, or mud tubes.

Plumbing and electrical issues

Plumbing and electrical issues: Older homes may have outdated systems that require repair or replacement. Buyers should hire a professional to inspect these systems and ensure they are in optimal condition.

Site Drainage: The main cause of foundation and subsidence issues in homes is poor stormwater drainage. This can result in significant structural damage to the home’s structure.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

building inspections are a valuable tool for ensuring the safety, compliance, and value of a property. They can help identify potential issues early on, provide peace of mind, and give property owners and buyers negotiating power.

Helping Buyers

Our comprehensive inspection report will give you a complete overview of the property’s condition, including any potential issues that may impact your decision to purchase. This valuable information will empower you to negotiate and make well-informed investment choices.

Identify potential issues: A building inspection can identify potential issues or defects in a property that may not be visible to the untrained eye. This includes structural problems, plumbing and electrical issues, water damage, and more. Identifying these issues early on can prevent them from becoming more serious and costly to fix in the future.

Pre-existing Reports

It is important to note that the liability of an inspector only extends to the person who hired them for the inspection. Others who rely on a report not directly completed by them do so at their own risk and should be aware that the inspector holds no liability for any missed defects.

The turnaround time for receiving a building inspection report can vary depending on the inspector and the scope of the inspection. In general, most building inspectors aim to provide the report within 24 to 48 hours after the inspection has been completed.

Identifying Potential Issues

Before purchase of a property conveyancers or solicitors will request copies of the Pre-purchase Building and Timber Pest reports as justification for granting an extension. Once you find a property you want, you can negotiate and make an offer.

Peace of mind: A building inspection can provide peace of mind to property owners and potential buyers by confirming that the property is in good condition and safe for use.

Comprehensive Reports

A thorough building inspection can save you significant money off the purchase price and prevent potential issues with the property. After completing the inspection, the inspector will provide you with a comprehensive written report detailing their findings.
