Common Pre Purchase Defects

When it comes to purchasing a new Bayside property, there is an extensive list of important things that need to be taken care of before you sign on the dotted line. In an affluent area such as Bayside, you want to ensure that you are getting the most out of your investment. Most buyers fall in love with a property and find themselves getting caught up in the excitement of buying a new home in Bayside. However, not many consider the fact that a home can have a multitude of defects lying hidden beneath the property’s cosmetic surface.  

At Premium Pre-Purchase Building Inspections Bayside, we can help you understand the problems that a house might have before you commit to the sale. It will mean that you will know all of the ins and outs of the property, which best prepares, you to adjust your offer if need be or seek advice on the cost of repairs which can, in turn, save you thousands in the long run.

To help give you a better understanding of building inspections, we have listed exactly what we look for when completing a property building inspection in Bayside below:
