What is a Pre-Purchase Building Report?
It is a report carried out before you buy a property. It covers every aspect of the property exposed to view.
It is approximately 3 pages and has two major functions:
- if the property is in good condition the buyer can purchase with confidence.
- if the property is in poor condition the buyer may reconsider.
What will the building inspection involve?
Our inspections look at the entire structure looking for any damage, irregularities; sub-standard workmanship and damp.
We look for:
- Cracking in the walls
- Sagging in the floors or ceilings
- Leaks and water damage
We consider the condition of the:
- Electric wiring
- Hot water system
- Gutters and downpipes
- Fences and paths
- Pool, BBQ, etc
What about a Final Inspection?
For those who are building instead of buying a pre-existing property. Don’t make your final payment to the builder until we do our inspection and submit our list of defects for the builder to rectify as he is required to do so by law.
Can I request a Work in Progress Report?
Yes. Be sure that your builder is doing a reasonable job so that when it does come to sell we can provide a positive pre-purchase report to your possible buyers.
And if the builder isn’t doing a good job?
ACCS also offers dispute resolution. A quick and cost effective way to ensure quality workmanship.
