Building Inspections

What are Building Inspections? 

Building inspections are an important part of the process of purchasing, building or selling a house to give you or the buyer of your property peace of mind that you are buying exactly what you think you are. Building inspections can also be used for warranty on your new build to identify within 12 months and rectify any mistakes a builder may have made during the build. Building inspections identify any hidden surprises contained within the property and can include:

  • Structural Cracking and Movement

  • Dampness
  • Timber Pest Damage
