What is a building inspection?

A Building Inspection is a valuable report compiled for the homeowner or the potential buyer of a property. It assists both owner-occupied and investor properties.

During a building inspection, an experienced building inspector will visit the property and conduct a thorough visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the property to provide an accurate account of the property condition. 

Typically, an owner will have little to no building experience and is unable to identify potential issues, safety items and building items requiring attention. For this reason it’s crucial to hire a professional who is experienced in the building industry to identify defects that could potentially turn into major safety hazards or structural problems in the future.

Why get a building inspection?

If you are looking to buy a home on the Central Coast, a building inspection is essential.

A pre-purchase building inspection helps to ensure the parties involved in a property transaction have a good understanding of the property’s condition before signing a contract, providing buyers in particular with peace of mind that they are making a wise investment decision.

Knowledge is power and you need to know exactly what you’re buying. This is why building inspections are an important part of the property-buying process.

What is included in a building inspection?

A thorough building report will identify safety hazards, structural damage and both minor and major defects of the property in the following areas:

  • Building Interior
  • Building Exterior
  • Roof Void
  • Sub Floor Space
  • Roof Exterior (As deemed safe by the inspector)
  • Garage, Carport and outbuildings
  • Driveway, Steps, Paths and fencing

Your Inspection Report

The inspector will then compile a comprehensive building inspection report within 24 hours to inform you of any major structural defects, items requiring maintenance and the general condition of the property.

Items of concern can be discussed directly with your Central Coast building inspection expert, Jeff Manwaring. We also encourage you to attend the inspection so that any issues can be pointed out and discussed directly.

Although, when it isn’t possible for you to attend the inspection, we are available by phone or email to discuss your building inspection report findings or to answer any questions you may have.
