Buying a house is a major investment and you don’t want things to go wrong, after the fact. At Your Nest, our pre-purchase home inspections provide you with a comprehensive report into any visual problems the property might encompass. We will take photos throughout the home as we check both internally, and externally, for any obvious signs of defects.
We will inspect the following:
• Roof space
• Under the floor
• Roof exterior
• The land / site
• Garden shed
Following the inspection, we will provide you with a detailed report and photographs of any defects we find, where they are located and whether they require urgent, long-term or no repairs. We will also provide you recommendation of any necessary repairs, including cost. You’ll receive our report and recommendations within 48 hours of the inspection being completed.
So you can rest assured you are receiving quality information, our Pre-Purchase building inspections are carried out in accordance with Australian Standard 4349.1.
Details of our inspections include the following:
Roof: We will check the roof cavity (interior) for any problems with insulation, framing and sarking. Outside, we’ll take a look the home’s tiles, gutters, gutters, downpipes, vents, flues and eaves.
