Building Inspections for Property Buyers
When you first look at a property, it’s only natural to get carried away with your hopes and dreams of the future. However, a building inspector will be able to see the whole picture and give you an informed report. Questions might arise such as, is the fresh paint covering damage? Is the plumbing working as it should? Is there movement in the walls that may result in cracking?
These are all issues that can be overlooked in a standard walk-through, but they can make all the difference when you’re looking at making one of the most significant financial investments of your life.
Also, if you’re interested in finding out something specific, like whether the property could sustain a second storey in the future, Your Building Inspector may be able to give you an indication of this.
You can also have a separate pest inspection report completed to ensure there are no hidden nasties under those polished floorboards.
