Pre Purchase Building Inspections

Premium Pre Purchase Building Inspections

For most of us, buying a house is the single most significant investment we are likely to make in our lifetimes. It is concerning then that so few of us opt for professional pre purchase building inspections before we make that leap.

At A1 Building & Pest Consultancy, we help our customers make informed decisions before they make purchases that they are likely to regret, by inspecting their prospective properties and identifying problems even if those problems are not readily apparent – yet.

Every year in Australia thousands of property buyers are duped into buying properties that are riddled with hidden problems. These issues could cost thousands to repair and would have prevented the purchase had the new owner been aware of them.

The Importance of Pre Purchase House Inspections

Imagine taking possession of your brand new house and after a year of bliss finding out that rising damp, wood rot, or termites have rendered the building structurally or otherwise unsound. Opting for a pre purchase property inspection before you committed would have saved you a whole lot of heartache and heaps of money.

  • Know precisely what you’re getting into when purchasing a property. Our pre purchase home inspections will let you know in advance if there is anything you need to worry about before signing any contracts. At the very least, you’ll be aware of the problem and be able to plan and budget for it.
  • Put yourself in the best possible position to negotiate with the seller. You can either get the house at a bargain or get enough discount to pay for whatever repairs are required to fix the house. Knowledge is power, and never more so than when you are about to make such a substantial investment.
  • Ensure that your house lives up to all relevant building codes and standards. We conduct our inspections through builder’s eyes and can identify issues that are not readily apparent, including building code violations and sub-par workmanship.
