Doric Property inspections provide building and pest inspections in Sydney for both commercial and residential properties. A building inspection is actually different to a property inspection in one very important way – a building inspection examines just the buildings, whilst a property inspection includes other areas as well.
Pre-purchase building inspections in Sydney
A Doric Property Inspection is a comprehensive inspection of the structure and foundations, unlike many others, which are often umbrella statements – i.e. commenting on the condition of the floors or walls of the building generally, as opposed to stating the type of defect or repair required and location, with photographs to easily identify the issue (which can then in turn, be used by your tradesperson to rectify the defect).
This is applicable for stand-alone buildings, such as residential and commercial properties. It is also suitable for pre-purchase inspections of units, town houses, duplexes and villas, because it looks at the foundations and the structure of the building as a whole.
Pre-purchase property inspections in Sydney
A property inspection is a comprehensive inspection of the building and the land, for example a residential or commercial building and the surrounding areas of the building including vegetation, trees, non-structural retaining walls and termite nests.
Commercial building inspections in Sydney
With commercial buildings you can either have a pre-purchase building inspection, because the property is part of another building or a pre-purchase property inspection including a pest inspection, because it is a stand-alone building and you need to include the surrounding areas in the inspection.
What does a pre-purchase building inspection in Sydney include?
Our pre-purchase building inspection reports are a very comprehensive inspection of the interior and the exterior of the building and include (but are not limited to):
- An assessment of the roof spaces and the condition of the roof itself, including the framework and tiles.
- An inspection of the sub-floor framework, ventilation and drainage.
- Any visible damp or water leaks, past or present from areas such as the shower, kitchen and laundry.
- Any visible pest or termite damage within the building and exterior.
- Safety hazards or movement within the structure.
We provide extensive pre-purchase building inspection reports
Our reports are approximately 20 pages in length and contain very detailed information, written in layman’s terms so you can easily understand the content.
Your building inspection report will include an overall summery of our findings and a list of any major defects. This summery is followed by a detailed report on any of these repairs or defects and suggested solutions, as well as photographs for easy reference.
