Pre-Purchase Home Inspections & Building Inspections In Adelaide

Why a Building Inspector is a Sound Investment

When buying a property or your dream home, it comes down to being properly informed. You need to know and have peace of mind that your proposed real estate investment in Adelaide is sound. 

A residential purchase is often a family’s single largest expenditure. It is crucial to be aware of the hidden defects that may be present in the property, the possible cause of the problems, and the urgency of repairs.

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 the council.
  • Downpipes draining at the base of the walls.
  • Settlement of walls and footings.
  • Walls not vertically plumb.
