Sydney Pre Purchase Building Inspections

About Pre-purchase Inspection 

The purchase of residential property is an important decision and needs to be supported by information on the state of a property. An independent and objective advice is a necessity to enable an informed decision. A specialist inspection helps a decision maker of a property. An inspection is also important for the purpose of a property valuation. We will find defects according to Australian Standard AS 4349.1, and laws, to provide determination to resolve attitudes intended to begin action.

The scope  of  inspection include:

  • interior of the building
  • exterior of the building
  • roof space
  • under-floor space
  • roof exterior
  • site.

You may also ask for a particular item or part of the property to be inspected, such as:

  • visible signs of asbestos
  • existence of an operational electrical safety switch
  • operational smoke alarms.
  • air conditioning systems.

What is a Sydney pre purchase building inspection report? 

A building inspection is just one check you can get done before buying a property.

Sometimes referred to as a ‘Standard Property Report’, a Pre–purchase Property Inspection report (subsequently referred to as a ‘Building Inspection Report’) is a written account of the property’s condition. It will include any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, movement in the walls (cracking), safety hazards and/or a faulty roof. It is usually carried out before you exchange sale contracts so you can identify problems which, if left unchecked, could prove costly to repair.

Note: A building inspection report is different to a ‘Pest Inspection Report’. While a Building Inspection Report should identify any visual damage that may have been caused by termites, it usually won't include termites or other timber destroying pests. You may choose to get a separate Pest Inspection Report done before you buy a property.

Why do I need a Building Inspection Report?

Benefits of getting a Building Inspection Report commissioned before buying a property are:

  • knowing in advance what the problems are
  • using the information to negotiate a lower price for the property ie. you may have to pay to repair some of the problems
  • gaining specialist advice about any major problems and how they will affect the property over time.
