It is important to have as much knowledge about the condition of the property before you make a purchase to avoid extra costs and problems in the future. A pre- purchase building inspection report, also known as a building inspection report, is the best way to make an informed decision.
What is a pre-purchase building inspection?
A pre-purchase building inspection report is a written document of the condition of a property. It will outline the overall condition of the property and inform you about any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, movement (cracking) in the walls, safety hazards or a faulty roof, just to list a few. The inspection is generally performed prior to exchange of sale contracts to determine any issues with the property which if left could potentially run into extra costs in the future.
