Do you need a building inspection when you're buying a Unit?
The answer is YES.
Whilst the fabric of the building containing the unit is the responsible of the Body Corporate (all the owners collectively) there are many problems where the symptoms of defects are only visible within an individual unit. For Example:
- Tiling Problems are common and can involve a significant expense to rectify.
- Timber flooring is a source of many problems.
- Bathroom waterproofing issues are common.
The inspection can also identify issues where your liability in relation to the common property requires further investigation .
ABIS recommends and can undertake for you a Body Corporate Search in which a thorough examination of the body corporate records is made to identify known problems and proposed action.
