A pre-purchase home inspection is performed by a professional suitably qualified and licesned building inspector. It is a visual examination of the readily accessible areas of a home to provide an accurate evaluation of the home’s condition at the inspection. Home inspections are designed to disclose defects in the property that could materially affect its safety, liveability or resale value. They are not meant to disclose cosmetic defects. The evaluation is presented to the buyer in a comprehensive report, so buyers are fully informed of the home’s condition prior to purchase.

 

Why do I need a building inspection report?

Benefits of getting a building inspection report done before buying a property are:

  • to have a clear picture of the condition of the property prior to negotiating and purchasing the property
  • 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 may affect the property over time
  • it is usually a requirement from your lender to undertake a professional building and pest inspection prior to purchase
