Building Inspections

Thinking of purchasing another Adelaide investment property?

We have partnered with First Choice Building and Pest Inspections to conduct Building Inspections for our customers.

 

Our building inspector can conduct;

 

  • Pre purchase reports

  • Pre auction reports

  • Building handover reports

  • Pre Sale reports

 

Pre purchase reports are conducted when a potential property is being considered for purchase.  A report is completed and returned to the customer within 24 hours of the inspection being completed. Reports are comprehensive and offer unbiased information in an easy to read, jargon free format.  All reports include visual pictures of the property and all areas being reported. 

 

Reports cover the following areas;

  • Roof – covering, sagging, drainage, flashings, gutters, skylight, chimney (visual only), fascia, barges, downpipes

  • Exterior – drainage, wall cladding, trim, doors, decks, stairs, timber, windows
