Inspection FAQs

Home Buyer Beware

Understandably, many vendors are anxious to sell so that they can get on with the next phase in their lives, perhaps even on to their next home, pending the sale of their current property. Unfortunately, in their eagerness to sell, vendors may behave rashly in an attempt to present their property in its best possible light. As a buyer then, you need to be constantly on your guard for these tricks including:

  • Termite management labels removed from the meter box
  • Termite management drill holes covered up with landscaping
  • Vacuum cleaner dust used to cover water staining in the roof void
  • Furniture placement to cover defects
  • Excessive personal effects and stored goods to prevent access and visual inspection
  • Posters and pictures to cover up defects
  • New paintwork to camouflage defects
  • New landscaping to hide defects or termite damage
  • Locked doors to prevent access
  • Patched timber work to hide defects
  • Distraction and misdirection by vendors to sabotage the inspection process
  • Parked cars under manholes to prevent access to roof voids
  • Locked garages to prevent access to roof voids
