Whether you’re buying an existing home, or considering renovations, a general building inspection will give you a good idea of the state of the property and where repair work may be necessary.
Our building inspectors have years of experience in the building industry, which they apply to the inspection of all properties.
The inspection report comments on any structural damage, conditions that could cause further damage, and any other defects in the condition of the home and property. It will also contain a description of the property and the materials used in construction.
What happens in an inspection?
The building inspector will investigate all accessible parts of the property, including the following areas;
- Exterior and interior of the building
- Roof space
- Under-floor space
- Roof exterior (subject to access and safety regulations)
- Garage, carports and garden sheds
- Separate laundry or toilet
- Non-structural retaining walls
- Steps, fencing, paths and driveways
The purpose of a building inspection is to warn you about any significant damage to the property so you don't end up buying a lemon. We do recommend that building inspections are accompanied with termite and pest inspections as they often go hand in hand to ensure the condition and safety of the property.
