Pre-purchase building inspections

Buying a new home or investing in a property is a big step. For most people, the most important purchasing decisions of their life. A lot of buyers fall into the trap of making an emotional buying decision and rushing their purchase because they like the look of the home on a superficial level. Most buildings look great with new coat of paint but don’t let this distract you from the fact that your home is a supporting structure. It needs to hold up and it needs to be a safe environment for you, your family or your tenants. Can you tell that the timber in your home is truly pest free? Are the walls and roof frame components in serviceable condition? Are the sub-floor components supporting your flooring sound?  Verification of these issues is essential to the purchase and occupancy of your property. This is why it is incredibly important to have a complete building inspection before you sign anything. After all, you do not want to discover these things once you have moved in. This is where a pre-purchase property inspection with Choice is not only prudent, it is essential.

With our 3-in-1 package we can conduct a timber pest inspection, structural/building inspection and infrared thermal image scanning in a pre-purchase situation in one simple visit. These three important inspections cover all aspects of the property and come with a comprehensive report. Complimentary RCD and Smoke Alarm check is also included.

Building Inspection Services

Choice Building Inspections can show you what condition the building is in before you settle.

One of our much requested services is pre-purchase building inspection. We survey the building and check it thoroughly. You then, only have to go through the report to understand what the status of your property is. We methodically survey all factors contributing to its safety and structural integrity.

Our Inspection Process

A fast, thorough, no-hassle process whether you’re a buyer or seller.

Once we have access to the property, one of our friendly inspectors will show up at the scheduled time. Our inspections usually take about 30-60 minutes, depending on the size, condition and age of the property.

During the Structural Building Inspection, walls, floors, doors, windows, patios, roofs, sub floors, and other essential home features are inspected. This will reveal the condition of the structure. The Timber pest inspection will look for current and previous pest activity and the advanced technology we use will help us locate the presence of pests. Infrared thermal imaging can expose any moisture related issues as well as assisting with timber pest detection.

Following the inspection we can directly email you the report. We can also send copies to real estate and settlement agents if required. Our reports are unbiased and we are happy to liaise with all parties involved in the purchase or sale of your property.
