Do you really need a structural inspection in Perth before buying the house that you want? The short answer is yes. It may feel like a waste of money, but pre-purchase building inspection will actually save you from surprise expenses and headaches in the long run.

When do inspections happen during a home sale?

Structural inspections in Perth can be done after the buyer makes an offer to purchase the home and before closing the deal. That way, the buyer can renegotiate with the seller in case the inspectors find issues and problems. Some buyers ask to lower the selling price while others request repairs.

Who does the inspection?

The best people to do structural inspections in Perth are those who have proper training and education. The inspection company must have the right certifications and licenses to provide services legally and safely. Since the job poses health and other risks, their inspectors are covered by public liability and insurances.

What happens during a home inspection?

This will actually depend on the package you will choose. Some companies offer pre-purchase building and pest inspection in a bundle. This can save you time and money.

Inspectors go through a long list of things to check in a home to see if it passes the latest building codes and standards. They evaluate the structural integrity of home by looking at features like walls, floors, windows, roofs, patios, and subfloors, looking for any signs of wear and other issues. Inspectors will also investigate if there are current and previous pest activities, water damage, electrical wiring issues, and plumbing issues.

What is not included in the service?

Home inspectors are not concerned about the aesthetics of the property. What they look at is the structural condition of the home which is evaluated by looking past the facade.
