What is a building inspection?

Whether you’re planning to buy a home, sell a home or even make renovations to a property, a building inspection is a must.

It’s always good to know as much as you can about a property before you make a decision.

A building inspection is a detailed assessment of the condition of the property that is carried out by a qualified professional. The inspection process covers all areas like cracked and damp walls, faulty roofs, etc.

A building inspection report will give details on where problems were uncovered and recommendations on the repairs needed to fix the problems.

A building inspection covers the following:

  • Checks for defects in the property before buying a home, selling a home, after renovations are made or after the completion of a new building.
  • It can be standalone or done in tandem with pest inspections.
  • The inspection will provide an accurate overview of the property you are concerned with.
