When buying a property, you need to ensure that you’re aware of minor
and major issues associated with the property to assist with your decision to
purchase that property, or to decline from purchasing that property. Any issues
within a home will affect its resale value, and you should be aware of any
potential pitfalls and repairs that may be needed before you commit to the
purchase of the property.
Even if your financial institution doesn’t require such detailed reports, or
you are buying a property “as is,” you should still have a detailed building
condition report done in order to know precisely the condition of the property you’re
intending to buy and, upon further request, estimated costs you may incur to undertake
While some issues are fairly obvious even to the untrained eye—moisture damage,
cracks in the plaster, discolouration due to mould growth, sagging floors and
missing roof tile—there can be underlying problems you may not immediately
notice. Our extensive experience enables us to inspect and identify such issues
and provide information and guidance for remediation of the issue.
