Buying or building a new home is an exciting time for most people. Amongst all the planning and paperwork, however, it’s important not to overlook one crucial aspect – planning an independent building inspection.
A qualified and experienced building inspector can provide you with all the information you need to decide whether a property is meeting your expectations or falling short of them. So, how can you determine which type of inspection is right for you and your needs?
Here are the three most common building inspection services in Adelaide and what they can offer you…
Pre-purchase building inspections
Let’s say you’ve finally found a home that ticks all your boxes. You’re excited and eager to put in an offer. Before you sign those contracts, it’s important to confirm your dream home isn’t hiding some nightmarish problems.
The truth is, when it comes to buying property, what you see isn’t always what you get. Agents aren’t required by law to tell you every little deficit a house may have, which is why it’s absolutely essential to enlist the help of a qualified and experienced pre-purchase building inspector before you buy.
These professionals will assess your potential new home from top to bottom and provide you with a detailed report showing all the problems they found. With the help of this service, you can make an informed decision on whether or not you want to purchase the property after all. At the end of the day, a great pre-purchase building inspector might just save you from buying a home that will cost you more time, money and stress than it’s worth!
Staged building inspections
When building a dream home or investment property, many people assume that builders complete their own quality checks at every stage. Unfortunately, however, you can’t always rely on the transparency of these assessments.
Getting an independent staged building inspector to assess each phase of the building process is essential to ensuring that your new home is built safely and to standard from beginning to end. If your inspector finds that something is wrong, you can present your builder with an official report and have the problem rectified before the next stage of the process commences. This ensures that when you’re in your new home, you can have peace of mind knowing that it meets the highest standards of quality.
No one wants to buy a new home only to move in and find that they have some unexpected roommates. Termites in particular can wreak havoc on a property and cost you a fortune in repairs and extermination services. Not exactly what you had in mind for your dream home, right?
This is why organising for a reputable pest inspector to assess your potential new property should be at the top of your priority list. While everything may look great from the outside, the roof, walls and floors may be crawling with critters you simply can’t see. Not only will a pest inspector check to ensure there is no current infestation, but they will usually conduct tests to see whether the property has the capacity to become a nesting ground in the future. Trust us, your future self will thank you for the peace of mind that comes with this inspection service.
