Australia’s Leading Property Inspections
A building inspection report should not be seen as an all-encompassing report dealing with every aspect of the property. Rather it should be seen as a reasonable attempt to identify any major problems that were visible at the time of the inspection. The extent of any problem will depend to a large extent upon the age and type of property. It plays a great role to a buyer to have a brief idea about the whole property which is going to be bought.
To prepare it by someone alone is a quite impossible job. This is where the services of a professional building inspection is worth it’s weight in gold. There is nothing more valuable than understanding what you are purchasing.
Purposes of the building report
Building inspection is carried out specifically for the information of home buyers. Its main purpose is to give you an expert’s view of the condition of the property the buyer is interested in buying. It is not intended to be used as a certificate of compliance for any law, warranty or insurance policy against future problems. Nor is it intended to estimate the cost of fixing problems. If somebody wants the consultant to estimate the costs of necessary work he /she will need a ‘special-purpose’ property report. (This is easily arranged – check out our recommended building inspections to the right).

The building inspection report company’s task is to prepare a detailed report about the above aspects of the property which is going to be bought. Also it is their responsibility to make the buyer visualised about the total report so that the buyer can take the right decision at the right time. It can also be used as a bargaining chip should there be some costly repairs noted and the buyer still wishes to proceed.

A building survey is suitable for all residential properties and provides a full picture of their construction and condition. It is likely to be needed if their property is, for example, of unusual construction, is dilapidated or has been extensively altered – or where a major conversion or renovation is planned. It is usually tailored to the client’s individual requirements. The report includes extensive technical information on construction and materials as well as details of the whole range of defects, major to minor. And these details can be realized and analyzed by the buyer with the help of the building report. Without it, there remains a great possibility of suffering in the long run.
