Our pre-purchase inspections ensure that no property defects go unnoticed. Our inspectors check for structural integrity and existing or potential weaknesses. Pests such as termites are not always active, so we check for inactive pest evidence. We’ll also check for potential asbestos contamination throughout the property. We also note even more minor cosmetic damages that can be fixed for easier sale. You get a report that will inform you of features that may need routine maintenance, or may cause future issues.
Waiting until contract to have your property inspected can cause major disruption to your deal. Problems that have previously gone unnoticed can cause significant expense to buyers. Contracts can therefore be delayed, cancelled, or renegotiated at a much lower price. Many of these issues can be entirely prevented by a pre-purchase inspection.
When you’re aware of issues within your building, you have the advantage of rectifying them pre-sale. Issues fixed prior to contract needn’t result in a lower price than anticipated. If you’re planning on selling your property in auction, investing in a pre-purchase inspection assists in successful sale. Buyers that are informed about the property are more at ease and ready to commit to purchasing a home.
