Pre-Purchase Building Inspections
How do you know the property you’re about to buy isn’t just an attractive lemon?
As a home buyer, you’re advised to engage a professional to undertake a pre-purchase building inspection on a property before you decide to buy. The purpose of the inspection is to identify any significant structural damage, property defects, or conditions likely to cause further damage.
Once you have a pre-purchase property inspection from a licenced inspector, you’ll have the information you need to make an informed decision. You’ll be able to proceed with the purchase, pull out of the contract, or negotiate a price that factors in any repairs you may need to make.
What happens in a pre-purchase inspection?
All of our building inspectors are experienced, licenced builders. They conduct a visual examination of all accessible areas and structures of the property, providing you with an unbiased assessment of the dwelling and surrounding area.
Inspection reports cover areas such as;
- Building interior and exterior
- Cracks and defects
- Roof and internal roof space
- Sub-floor space
- Retaining walls and fencing
- Termite and pest inspection
We encourage you, where possible, to be present for the inspection so the inspector can advise you on any specific problems and possible methods of repair.
Don't buy a lemon
All our inspectors make sure they do the job properly the first time, with the utmost of care and professionalism, so you can have confidence in the findings of the inspection report and avoid buying a lemon.
We respond to inspection requests and provide you with a complete report within 24 to 48 hours. Contact the experts at Jeffrey Hills & Associates for quality pre-purchase building and pest inspections on the Gold Coast.
