Glen Iris Building Inspections

With the room to move that so many crave and clusters of stores to explore, the leafy-green suburb of Glen Iris is just 10 kilometres south-east of Melbourne, full of period charm.

This well-established suburb has been labelled one of the best in Victoria, with its mix of art deco homes, California bungalows and contemporary apartments, it’s the perfect mix of old and new. The large family friendly suburb is filled with parks, an array of primary and secondary education with excellent transport options.

If you are looking to purchase a home in Glen Iris, it’s natural to want to be completely satisfied with the value of your new investment. By investing in a pre-purchase building inspection, you are able to gain reassurance about your home’s structural integrity before signing on the dotted line. The information you receive from a professional examination can allow you to negotiate a better price at the time of sale, save yourself thousands in repairs further down the track and acknowledge any issues that you may require attention in the future.  

Pests

When many homeowners think of termite infestations, they associate it with the wooden structures of a home, such as in support beams, wooden floors, and wood frames behind drywall. However, termites in trees can also be a real problem, especially if termites make their way from trees on your property onto your home and other wooden structures.

Nobody wants to purchase a home, only to discover later that they have also bought a termite foundation which will present an extra expense as well as an unnecessary headache for the owner. This is where the team at Premium Pre-Purchase Inspections can help.

As well as a regular building inspection you can combine it with a pest inspection to look for the presence of termites, or signs that they have been present beforehand. We will also inspect for conditions on the property that may make the home vulnerable to them in the future. All of our home inspections are conducted in compliance with Australian standard.
