Pre Auction Building Inspections

A building inspection’s goal is to find flaws in both newly constructed buildings and old structures. As a building inspection company, it is our responsibility to find these flaws, determine the general state with you, and give you a report that is well written. A general assessment of the building’s construction standards and craftsmanship will also be provided.

Building inspections are crucial for individuals who are planning to buy a home or have a building constructed because you want to know the quality of the building’s structure and finishes before you commit to it. You may be sure that you are in good hands because we work as a completely independent building inspection company with very skilled building inspectors that have over 40 years of experience in the building and construction business.

Our Inspectors are registered with the VBA as “Licenced Builders,” “Licenced Building Inspectors,” and “Licenced Pest Control and Termite Management Technicians,” giving you the best choice and access to fully Independent, Qualified, and Licenced Building and Pest Inspectors.

Pre-Purchase Inspection For Auctioned Properties

Building and pest inspections are two important pre-auction inspections that buyers should perform. Pest inspections will help you determine if the property houses bugs, mice, and other insects that could cause allergies and health issues. A pre-auction building inspection report, on the other hand, will help you decide whether the property for auction is still in good condition.

One of the important regulations in an auction is requiring buyers to have house inspections prior to the auction process. As mentioned earlier, you can no longer have a pre-auction inspection once the contract has been settled. This means that you will now shoulder all the underlying defects found in your newly purchased property.

Unfortunately, most buyers these days neglect to commission a building and pest inspection. If you are one of them, think again.

How A Pre-Auction Building Inspection Affects Your Finances

Getting a new property from an auction still requires you to spend any amount of money, depending on the bids you place. Therefore, you always want to ensure that every penny you spend will be worth it. Having a pre-auction building inspection gives you peace of mind and creates a financial sense.

A qualified building inspector in Melbourne will provide you with a detailed report about the property available for auction. This will help you have a holistic view of the property and assess whether it is worth the buy.

A pre-auction inspection is an excellent service that should be done before placing your bids. Included in many pre-auction inspections services are pest inspections and overall house inspections. A property inspection is being performed by a building inspector. A detailed inspection report shows a thorough property inspection.

Thermal Camera

Infrared camera building inspections identify problems by viewing differences in temperature on a gradient scale through thermal imaging. his is a non-invasive temperature measurement tool that can keep you from spending money on repairs in the future.

Borescope

A borescope is a flexible tube with a camera and light attached to it. It’s used to visually inspect areas that are difficult to access, such as inside wall cavities, ductwork, or pipes. By using borescope, our inspectors can examine the condition of hidden components and identify any defects or damages.

Termatrac Device
