PRE-PURCHASE PROPERTY INSPECTIONS

MELBOURNE

Don’t make a costly mistake

Building and pest issues can cost big bucks to fix. With a PPI Building Inspection, you’ll know exactly what you’re in for, before you sign on the dotted line.

When you’re armed with this information, you can make a sound decision about whether or not it is a good buy or a bad buy. And, if there are issues, you can use the report to help you negotiate a lower purchase price.

A PPI Building Inspection will tell you
  • if there are any major defects or structural problems
  • if there has been dodgy building work or issues covered up
  • if there are leaks or waterproofing issues
  • what the minor defects are and what your ongoing maintenance costs will be
  • what it will cost you to get the property up to scratch.

Know what you’re buying

The property you’re looking at could look fine on the surface, but have a long list of defects and issues that you can’t see. Defects and issues that could potentially cost you tens of thousands of dollars to fix. So it makes sense to get a PPI building inspection and building report and know exactly what you’re buying, before you buy.

Preparing to make an offer, or getting ready to bid at auction

Generally the experts agree that the best thing you can do before you buy is to get a Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection. It will tell you exactly what is going on with the property, so you know if it is going to be a smart investment or a money pit. If there are issues present, the report can also give you a solid basis to negotiate a lower purchase price.

Melbourne building inspections start at $295

It’s a small price to pay when you consider it could save you tens, even hundreds, of thousands of dollars in the long run. Not only can our building reports save you the stress and financial burden of buying a money pit, they can also give you the information you need to negotiate a lower purchase price.

Pre-Purchase inspection options

Our Melbourne Building Inspections and Reports are thorough and comprehensive.

Building only inspection

A building inspection involves checking every aspect of the property to identify any major or minor defects, leaks, waterproofing issues and any repairs that are likely to be required.

PPI’s Melbourne building inspectors take the time to carefully inspect the interior and exterior of the property, including the roof, building, sub-floor structure, decks and verandahs, fences, flooring, stairs, windows, carport and garage, plumbing, structural soundness and also check for any non-compliant building work.

We then provide you with a comprehensive report that details any issues or concerns, along with the steps and likely costs to rectify them.

Building and pest inspection

A building and pest inspection not only looks at the structural soundness of the building, it also identifies any pest issues, past or present.

Pests like termites, wood borers, mould and fungus’ can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your property and put your health and safety at risk. And unfortunately, many Melbourne suburbs are prone to these things.

In most cases the damage and risks caused by pests can’t be seen, so as a Melbourne property owner a pest inspection is a smart thing to have done before you sell.

Your building inspector will provide you with a detailed report identifying any past, current or potential pest issues for the property.
