Before you buy a building in Melbourne it’s important to know its condition beyond what you can see yourself. A qualified building inspector should inspect the building and write up a report that helps you make a sound investment decision.
The building inspection report can help you make your final purchase decision or serve as information in your negotiations with the seller.
A good building inspection report will tell you:
- if there are any major defects or structural problems
- if there has been dodgy building work or issues covered up
- if there are leaks or waterproofing issues
- what the minor defects are and what your ongoing maintenance costs will be
- what it will cost you to get the property up to scratch
Building Inspections are a Smart Investment
Building inspection costs start at just $295 but can save you thousands of dollars down the road. A properly written report tells you not only what is wrong with the property now, but what could potentially go wrong in the near future, such as a roof on its last legs or any signs of structural damage in the roof space or in the sub floor.
An Inside Look at the Building
To the untrained eye, the building you want to buy makes it look great. Its location, layout, and function may be just what you had in mind, but what you don’t know could hurt you. Without a professional inspection, you could overlook serious defects that could cost you a lot of money and decrease the value of the property. Why take a chance on making a bad investment right from the start?
Have Negotiation Power
Negotiating the price of a building should never be done blindly. Just because the building seems perfect doesn’t mean there aren’t underlying issues. Even if you still want to buy it, you should do so at a lower price than what’s being asked if the inspection report turns up problems that will cost you thousands of dollars right off the bat.
