Don’t leave your next property purchase to chance!

Your future house or investment property may be very well presented and appear to be in excellent condition but unless you’re trained to know exactly what to look for, there may be a multitude of structural or other defects that end up costing you considerably more than just the purchase price. Aside from the financial implications of purchasing without a pre-purchase property inspection, you may be unknowingly exposing yourself or your family to physical danger from things like chemical contamination or retaining wall failures.

Using the latest technology, Landmark will carry out a thorough pre-purchase inspection of every room of the property, as well as its exterior, and report back to you on both major and minor defects. Being builders ourselves, we understand the areas of a building that are prone to structural damage and how to identify any indicators that all is not right. Examples of areas covered in our comprehensive report includes deterioration of supporting posts or stirrups, breakdown of waterproofing materials, movement of retaining walls, fungal wood rot and termite damage, drainage problems, condition and locations of smoke alarms and assessment of pool fence suitability. Our report will provide a detailed checklist of areas inspected and major as well as minor defects found. We’ll also make recommendations regarding, and arrange for, further investigative inspections around plumbing and electrical systems as required.

What are pre-purchase building inspections?

A pre-purchase inspection is usually undertaken by a potential buyer who is in the process of finalising the purchase of some property. However, sellers may also undertake it, especially if they want to uncover the true condition of their property before selling it. Generally, the inspection is a visual evaluation of the condition, with the purpose of identifying defects, issues, and other items of concern. The inspections are carried out as per the Australian Standard 4349.1. The report highlights major and minor defects/faults with the property.

What is body corporate inspection?

A body corporate inspection report is usually carried out in a townhouse, apartment, unit, complex, etc., on behalf of the property’s owner. The report will include the inspection of all external and internal areas such as facades, foyers, hallways, pool areas, etc. The report highlights all areas of concern that can then be addressed.
