What is a pre-purchase property inspection report?
 A pre-purchase property inspection report is a professional assessment of the condition of the home you’re considering buying. It’ll help you understand any needed repairs and evaluate if it’s worth it to buy this home.
Sometimes called a standard building and/or pest report, a pre-purchase property inspection report (also called a building inspection report) is a written account of the property’s condition.

Before exchanging sale contracts or cooling off, you can get a full report on any existing problems. This should include anything that may be dangerous or could reduce the value of your property, including dampness, cracking in the walls, safety hazards, or faulty roofs.

Note: A building inspection or defects report differs from a pest inspection report. While a building inspection report should identify any visual damage that termites may have caused, it usually won’t include termites or other timber-destroying pests. You may choose to combine a timber pest inspection with a building inspection done before you buy. Please let us know if you require a timber pest report when booking.
Why do I need a building inspection report?

The advantages of getting a building inspection report done before buying a property are:

  • knowing in advance what the problems are.
  • use the information to negotiate a better deal for the property, and you may have to pay to repair some of the problems documented in the report.
  • We can advise you on any significant problems and how they will affect the property and value over time.
  • Buying an investment property? We can help you maximise your return on investment on your existing or next investment property with a 40 years ATO-compliant tax depreciation schedule.  PLAY VIDEO
