For most people, buying or selling a home can be pretty overwhelming and confusing. There’s an endless list of things to check and comply with, and if you get it wrong, it can cost you a fortune.
Our ‘combined’ building inspections provide buyers with a complete picture of the pre-purchase state of a property, allowing buyers to make an informed purchase.
For sellers, you may also benefit from having a pre-sale inspection done so you can provide potential buyers with the answers to any concerns upfront, making it easier to sell your property, and remove the need for conditional contracts of sale.
Once we’ve completed all of the inspections you’ll receive a detailed report, including photographs to fully document the condition of the property. We also outline possible solutions to any problems to enable you to comfortably decide on your purchase.
The structural inspection involves careful review and appraisal of the structural condition of the home.
We keep an eye out for things like water damage, sagging ceilings, issues with load-bearing beams, and poor workmanship.
Our structural inspections exceed the requirements of Australian Standard 4349.1 (2007)
All properties age and deteriorate over time but sometimes the workmanship or materials used in the build are substandard and can lead to unexpected repairs.
Our qualified building inspector does a thorough site check to determine potential problem areas and suggests a plan for fixing them.
The number one priority is to keep your family safe, which is why a safety inspection is a must.
Our safety inspection includes but is not limited to:
We check all wet areas (bathrooms, laundry, kitchen) for general leaks and drips, test that the hot water is working and that the taps, showerheads and so on are operating as intended.
One in three Australian homes built before 1990 are likely to contain asbestos. If you are purchasing a home built before 1990 it is important to check for asbestos.
ProConsult’s basic pre-purchase asbestos inspection includes a thorough visual assessment of the property carried out by our expert inspector.
