You can make your purchase decision (or sale) with confidence, knowing the property has been thoroughly checked. All homes are meticulously scanned using the latest high-quality equipment and methods.
Reports provide comprehensive, accurate and informative details about the property/building condition. They are prepared in accordance with Australian Standards and are recognised by real estate agents and solicitors.
Inspection reports not only cover internal building conditions but also identify defects in external areas such as walls, stairs, handrails, decking, roof areas, roof membranes, patios, swimming pools, trip steps and existing termite/pest barrier treatments. Issues commonly covered by external inspections detail cracking in building foundations, movement, moisture ingress, leaking recesses and drainage.
