Call Your Building Inspector Before Signing

If you’ve found a property that you love, you want to ensure that your investment is a wise one. Unless you are planning on knocking the property down to use the land, you’re going to want to live in the home and don’t want to move into a money pit.

Be sure to call your building inspector and organise your inspection before signing any documents. You can also put in your sale contract that a sale is subject to a building inspection in case you find out that the property is damaged beyond what you’re willing to repair.

Be There for the Inspection

Be sure to be there for your building inspection if time permits. Doing so will allow you to ask questions as they come up, ask for professional advice in person and see any defects for yourself.

Read Your Inspection Report Carefully

At Premium Pre-Purchase Building Inspections, we will provide you with a detailed inspection report within 24 hours of your building inspection. It is quite critical that you take the time to read your inspection report carefully.

In your report, you can expect to find detailed findings with photographs of defects in each room, as well as a listing of trades that can help you fix any flaws that are found should you choose to move forward.
