House defect cover ups exposed

Buying a House? Have a building inspection first.

If you are reading this you may be considering purchasing a house. It may seem overwhelming considering that it’s probably the single largest purchase you will ever make. One of the challenges with purchasing a house is the risk of buying one that has expensive to fix defects. As you are probably aware, some vendors purposely cover up defects in order to offload a house that has problems. In other cases builders perform cheap and nasty renovations hoping to profit from a quick turn- around. During building inspections, inspectors see first-hand these cover-ups and poor quality renovations and believe that it is vital not to assume that all is well when inspecting a house that is for sale. That’s why it is highly recommended that you commission a pre-purchase building and pest inspection prior to any purchase. Melbourne House Check offer Pre Purchase Building and Pest Inspections which can be conducted either prior to purchase or after a contract has been signed.

Brad Aylett-Sloan from Melbourne House Check says that they have released a booklet uncovering defects in houses. “You will discover from this booklet, the structured checklist we follow at each and every inspection, whether it’s a concrete slab or a suspended timber frame, you will become more aware of the potential problem areas of each house and be more able to identify suspected cover- ups”.

Brad says “At Melbourne House Check we have developed a team of similarly passionate building consultants who are all registered builders with years of experience and we personally guarantee a level of service to each client that is detailed and communicative.

We hope you get value from this booklet and I’d like to ensure you that we are here to help you, and answer any of your questions anytime with no obligation. At Melbourne House Check we believe that if you follow the enclosed checklist of cover-ups from start to finish you are most likely to expose a cover-up or be assured that the house you buy will not present any unknown problem afterwards”.
