Combined Structural Maintenance Safety Asbestos Termite Inspection
Why would you buy property without knowing the full picture?
There are a lot of things to do when buying a new home. From finance to the logistics of a move, it sometimes feels like the list will never end. To save you time we’ve combined five important elements in to one handy comprehensive inspection package. These combined inspections provide buyers with a complete picture of the pre-purchase state of a property, allowing you to make an informed purchase. These inspections are becoming more popular with buyers prior to putting in an offer.
Sellers also benefit from having a pre-sale inspection done so they can provide potential buyers with the answers to any concerns upfront, and remove the need for conditional contracts of sale.
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)
Building Maintenance Inspection
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.
Safety Compliance Inspection
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:
- Residual Current Devices (RCD)
- Smoke Alarms
- Pool Fencing
General Plumbing Inspection
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.
Pests like white ants and termites can cause significant and sometimes undetectable damage to the naked eye. ProConsult’s termite inspection identifies timber pest activity, new or old, within the home and perimeter of the property.
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.
