Pre Purchase Building Inspection

Pre Purchase Building Inspections Brisbane

The average repair cost for termite damage to a house is around $7,000 and whether you are an owner-occupier or an investor, this is an expense better covered by the vendor than you. Likewise, structural building issues can mean huge unexpected financial outlays and these defects have been detected in both new and old homes. So a pre purchase building inspection really should be a natural and necessary step when you are looking to buy property. Equally, some vendors carry out pre purchase building inspections before listing the property, so as to avoid unwanted surprises and offer prospective buyers an added incentive and peace of mind. The findings of such a report also serve as a point for negotiation on selling price for both vendors and buyers.
