Are you familiar with pre-purchase building and pest inspections? Do you know why building and pest inspections are so important?
When purchasing a property it’s important to enter the transaction fully aware. It’s easy to get carried away with the excitement and let emotions take over the decision-making process.
One way to ensure there’s nothing blurring your vision, is to organise a pre-purchase building and pest inspection.
At Building and Pest Inspection Melbourne we believe a pre-purchase inspection is essential when buying a property. It will give you peace of mind and a detailed insight into the condition of the property you’re looking to purchase. If defects are identified, it may also give you the opportunity to negotiate the purchase price or even withdraw from the contract if the problems are above and beyond what you’re willing to accept depending on the terms of your contract of sale.
During a pre-purchase building and pest inspection an inspector will conduct a visual check of the property and provide a report on any structural issues, electrical problems, repairs or safety hazards. A Building and Pest Inspector will look at:
- wet areas
- roof exterior
- masonry walls
- laundry and kitchen
- roof space/voids
- subfloor/underfloor space.
In the name of quality control, we only book in 3 properties per day, so you can be sure our building and pest inspections are never rushed.
