Property Protect Building & Pre Purchase Inspections in Adelaide

Why a building inspection is a sound investment.

It comes down to being properly informed about what you are buying. You need to know that your proposed real estate investment in Adelaide is sound. A residential purchase is often a family’s single largest expenditure, so it is crucial to be aware of the hidden pre purchase building defects that may be present in the property, the possible cause of the building and pest problems and the urgency of house repairs and pest inspections. Some of the most common pre-purchase property defects which we see often are:

  • Structural defects.
  • Building pest presence
  • The presence of salt damp / rising damp.
  • Slab edge wetting in floor slabs.
  • Maintenance defects.
  • Shower leaks.
  • Old wiring.
  • Lack of stormwater management.
  • Roof leaks.
  • Extensions not approved by council.
  • Downpipes draining at the base of the walls.
  • Settlement of walls and footings.
  • Walls not vertically plumb.

Our pre-purchase building inspection service reports will assist you to:

  • Decide whether you wish to proceed with the purchase of the building
  • Armed with our pre-purchase property report  you will be in a position of strength in your negotiations for the pre-purchase sale, and plan for future maintenance and property costs.
