Pre-Purchase Inspections

The main purpose of having a Pre-Purchase building inspection conducted is to identify any significant defects visible at the time of inspection that may affect the buyer’s decision to purchase the property. Although there may be defects found, this allows the buyer to make an informed decision about price negotiation should they feel it necessary considering works need.

We understand the stress and time constraints of buying property and making the right choice and will do all we can to make the process as smooth as possible for the purchaser. Our reports have a quick reference summary of defects making it easier to read. We also offer a phone conversation with the inspector to discuss concerns you may have.

Buildwise Certification also offers the service of organising Pre-Purchase Pest Inspections using reputable pest inspectors from the local area where possible that own their own pest companies. We believe that by arranging a pest inspector that has experience in controlling pest, not only inspecting, and is working in the local area, you are getting the best available advice and report. You will benefit from two sets of eyes looking over your building, each concentrating on what their expertise is.
