What Does The Building Inspection Report Include?

Before buying any home, it's necessary to have a building and pest inspection performed. It provides you with expert advice on the general state of the property and aids in identifying current and potential issues with the home or building. Additionally, you will have data to use in your home price negotiations if you have the inspection report on hand. Pre-purchase building property inspection are a tool for real estate property - but remember that they also have limitations.

Getting a quotation

If you give us a call, we can provide you with a quote based on the size of your property and the kind of building inspection you require. A typical pre-purchase inspection will examine the property's structural soundness and any significant and minor flaws.

Some homes require more time to clean than others, so we will ask you a few questions during the call regarding the condition and size of the house to determine how long it will take and how much it will cost. An inspection typically lasts 1.5 to 2 hours.
