Pre-purchase Building Inspections

The information you need to make the right decision

A building inspection by Doric Property Inspections is a comprehensive assessment of the structure and foundations, unlike many others, which are often umbrella statements that only comment on the condition of the floors or walls of the building generally.

Our building inspections state the type of defect or repair required and the 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.

Call us to arrange a pre-purchase commercial building inspection, or a pre-purchase residential building inspection.

What does a pre-purchase building inspection include?

Our pre-purchase building inspection reports are a very comprehensive assessment 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 bathroom, kitchen and laundry.
  • Any visible active timber pest or timber pest damage within the building and exterior.
  • Safety hazards or movement within the structure.

About our pre-purchase building inspection reports?

Our pre-purchase building inspection reports are a comprehensive, 20- page guide filled with detailed information about the condition of the property, written in layman’s terms so you can easily understand the content.

Your building inspection report will include an overall summary of our findings and a list of any major defects. This is followed by a detailed report on any of these repairs or defects and suggested solutions, as well as photographs for easy reference.

Our detailed pre-purchase building report will give you a clear picture of the state of the property so you can make an informed decision whether or not you want to proceed with the purchase.
