A most VITAL report to obtain before you buy a property. All accessible areas are inspected, such as roof voids, subfloors, the internal living areas, and all external areas of the property including out-buildings (granny flats, studios etc.), garages, fences, trees, and retaining walls. Inspections are carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard AS4349.1./AS4349.0. A Pre–Purchase Property Inspection Report will tell you about any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, movement in the walls (cracking), safety hazards or a faulty roof to name a few.
If left unchecked ,it could prove costly in unplanned repairs. You will know in advance, what the problems are. You can use the information to try and negotiate a lower price for the property i.e. you may have to pay to repair some of the problems. Then you can obtain specialist advice about the defects, their impact on the property and potential costs to rectify the problems.
