PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTIONS

PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION

Pre-purchase inspections are for established homes; you may or may not have yet signed a sales agreement to purchase. If you haven't we suggest you add a condition to the contract and encourage you to speak with us first, this will then enable you to have more scope with regarding to what the Seller may need to remedy at their cost prior to you taking possession. 

Each real estate agency may have a preferred building inspection annexure, such as the ‘REIWA pre-purchase structural inspection condition annexure’ or the agency may have one of their own. These annexures generally only allow for the inclusion of structural defects, that is where the intended structural performance of a building element has deviated from its intended structural performance where rectification has to be carried out to avoid unsafe conditions, loss of utility or further deterioration of the building structure. If you have not yet signed a sales contract and/or annexure we encourage you to speak with us first.

Our recommendation is that you, the potentially new homeowner of the property, have a fully comprehensive overview of the property, as such we will provide you two building reports, the first to include and certify the structural integrity of the home and the second to include plumbing, electrical, compliance including legislative changes, such as the type and age of smoke detectors, RCD safety switches and also report on maintenance related items. This provides you as the new homeowner, a complete overview of the entire property.
