What is a Building Inspection?

What is a Building Inspection?

It sounds like a simple question; however a building inspection can be the make or break of the real estate industry.

A building inspection can uncover structural, conditional and design defects or problems in the interior and exterior of a property, some of which may not be visible at first glance, especially to the untrained eye.

That’s why it’s important to contact the experts at Your Building Inspector. Our qualified building inspectors can examine all aspects of the property before buying or investing.

Your Building Inspector’s building inspectors can examine the interior and exterior of the home or commercial building, including the roof space, underfloor space, the roof exterior and the actual site of the property, which are all important areas that should be inspected.

The inspections will identify all the potential deal breakers, such as significant structural movement, major water penetration and considerable deterioration in the building elements, including roofing, rendering, and painting.

If you’re buying a property in an area where termites and pests have been a problem, a separate termite and pest inspection are highly recommended.

A pest inspection can not only uncover evidence of things like termite damage, but a building and pest inspection can also help safeguard property buyers against investing in fault-ridden properties caused from white ants and other detrimental problems.

The other benefit of a property inspection is that if no major issues are identified, but several minor problems are noted, the report can become a powerful negotiating tool in regards to purchasing price.
