Do I need a building inspection??
I always recommend a building inspection be conducted by a professional before signing the contract,it amazes me that only 1 out of 12 people who inspect a property conduct a pre purchase building inspection,absolutely crazy ,this should be mandatory as you never know whether there are significant structural defects that could cost you thousands to repair,for the small cost involved never take the risk just not worth it
