MELBOURNE HOUSE INSPECTION
The purchase of a house is a big decision and the most important thing is to employ an experienced Building inspector and to provide a Melbourne House Inspection report that will identif the presence of any defects,the location of these defects as well as providing photos and cost of rectification of all defects mentioned in report
Although there are a lot of people asking for a pre purchase report before buying a property there ase still many that do not conduct building inspections of there new home as its not mandatory to do so in melbourne at the moment and i fail to understand why so many people when buying a property do not do a Building Inspection as there so many houses that have structural and major issues that require the attention of the prospective buyer that could cost them thousands to fix in the future if defects exist and there could also be termite damage or drainage issues
My advice is to always get your new purchase inspected before signing the contract of sale.its not worth the risk for the small amount required to employ the services of a competent building inspector to conduct a melbourne house inspection report
We inspected a property recently in the south east suburbs that looked immaculate from the outside and all the internal areas were serviceable in condition,but upon closer inspection there seemed to be damage to the timber flooring and upon inspection of the sub floor we discovered that there was extreme damage to the foor boards from water damage as well as finding termite trails at floor joist junctions with floor boards which indicated the presence of live termites,if the prospective buyers did not employ our services then they would have had to spend many thousands to rectify,so it does make sence to employ the services of an inspector to provide a melbourne house inspection report.
How many times have i inspected the sub floor only to uncover rotten floor boards,termite trails and defective stumps holding bearers and floor joists that are ready to collapse, my client had walked away from the purchase but someone else bought it and he was celebrating at the day of auction without realising that he just bought himself a “Lemon” which was going to cost him thousands to remedy
