Building Inspectors have an understanding of all the components that make up a building and are trained to investigate those parts of a house that are prone to structural damage. Termites are another major problem for house buyers, as a house can be fully infested with termites without any visible signs. Houses built on concrete slabs can offer termites undetected access to the timber frame via small cracks in the slab or built-up landscaping. Termites are silent, they never sleep and they multiply at an incredible rate.
If you are considering buying a house without having a pre purchase building inspection, you are taking a huge risk. Just because a house is presented well, doesn’t mean all is ok. In fact there are so many things that can be hidden it takes more than just an eager eye to identify the problems. At Melbourne House Check we are experts at discovering ‘cover ups’ and know all the tricks that vendors can use to hide defects and problems.
Our new home inspections in Melbourne will identify both major and minor defects in any house. We ensure that the building conforms to the relevant building codes and standards. We also give specialist advice regarding any major problems and how they will affect the property over time. A pre-purchase inspection is an essential tool to ensure that there are no hidden surprises after you purchase a Melbourne property. During our building inspection we look for termites, asbestos and cover ups.
