Why do I need a building inspection report?

The benefits of arranging an independent, comprehensive building inspection report done before buying a property are:

  • Knowing in advance what the problems are of the property, i.e. structural, termite or foundation damage.
  • Using the information to negotiate a lower price for the property i.e. you may have to pay to repair some of the problems.
  • Gaining specialist advice about any major problems and how they will affect the property over time.

Many agents offer potential buyers access to a building and pest inspection that they’ve organised. These are usually a cheap option conducted by an unqualified, unlicenced, uninsured building inspector.

Organising your own independent building and pest report from a licenced, insured inspector gives you far greater peace of mind and, quite often, a far more accurate report.
