Building Inspection

Building inspection is thorough inspection of a building (apartment, townhouse, house or any commercial ) for the presence of any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, movement in the walls (cracking), safety hazards 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

How Building Inspection Benefits

The basic benefits of the inspection report done before buying a property are:

  • Detailed information about the problems in the property.
  • Using the inspection report to negotiate a lower price than otherwise, you may have to pay to repair.
  • acquiring specialist advice about all major problems in the property and how they will affect over time.

How to choose Building inspector

Always use a suitably qualified person such as a licensed builder, a surveyor, or an architect to provide a professional inspection report of the property. These professionals are able to see through any cosmetic improvements covering up faults that might otherwise be missed by an untrained eye.

A professional person will ensure that the format and content of the report complies with the relevant Australian Standard.

Please ensure that the building inspector you choose has an adequate insurance cover, particularly for professional indemnity. You can read about this on the Fair Trading website
