Use a Professional

The importance of getting a professional pre purchase home inspection as a buyer.
When buying a house, unit or commercial building, it is vital that you obtain a building inspection report and in most cases you will also need a timber pest inspection report as well.

These reports provide you (the potential purchaser) with a thorough understanding concerning the condition of the building and the surrounding structures. With this information, you can be completely happy moving forward with your new acquisition or you can negotiate the asking price and then budget for any possible repairs that need to be performed.

For Pre Purchase Structural & Pest Property Inspections & Dilapidation Reports

Australian Standards

When you hire a building inspector in Sydney to perform a pre-purchase inspection of any residential or commercial property, these reports must meet the Australian Standard AS 4349.1 – 2007; pest inspections must also comply with the Australian Standard AS4349.3.2010

If your inspector does not comply with these standards, then you cannot be sure that your reports are comprehensive and complete. Inadequate inspections can result in possible omissions, which can mean that you might pay more for the property than appropriate, given its current condition.

So it is vital that you ensure that any building inspector that you employ to perform a pre-purchase commercial or residential property inspection in Sydney fully complies with the Australian Standards.

Our Reports

At Doric Property Inspections we not only comply with all Australian Standards, but we exceed them and give you even more information than required by these standards. We are also fully insured, so you don’t have any worries with public liability or professional indemnity.

Our reports are compiled on a room by room basis for example (with photographs of the property and defects)–condition of the doors, floor, walls, ceilings, services, sub floor and roof void where applicable and we do not just follow the common tick sheet used by other building consultants in Sydney.

We advise on smoke alarms for compliance with Australian Standards.

Doric Property Inspection reports are easy to read, without the typical builders jargon as in some reports.

For example we provide information on:

  • Major and minor defects and repairs within the boundaries of the property (up to 30 metres from the main building).
  • Any future maintenance issues.
  • Existing and potential water run off problems.
  • We examine all smoke alarms for compliance with Australian Standards.
  • We identify any illegal building works and give you advice regarding the same.
  • Advice on asbestos (and other similar health hazards) – asbestos is typically in most buildings pre 1985, however due to some builders who bulk bought material – containing asbestos in the early to mid-80’s, this material may have been kept in storage and used at a later date.

We also offer a free service included at the time of inspection – where any future additions or changes to the building that you may be considering, can be discussed. This takes all the worry away from wondering whether you can actually achieve your plans for the property and you can confidently move ahead with the purchase.

FREE post-inspection advice

At Doric Property Inspections we encourage you to call us after reading the reports (even though the reports are generally written in layman’s terms). You might just want to clarify a point or two or ask about possible future repairs that may be required on the property. So it is always good to catch up on the phone, once you have read the report, so you are sure that we have ticked all the boxes for you.

About Coogee

Coogee is a beachside suburb of local government area City of Randwick 8 kilometres south-east of the Sydney central business district, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is also a part of the Eastern Suburbs region.

The Tasman Sea and Coogee Bay along with Coogee Beach lie towards the eastern side of the suburb. The beach is popular among families and famous for its safe swimming conditions. The boundaries of Coogee are formed mainly by Clovelly Road, Carrington Road and Rainbow Street, with arbitrary lines drawn to join these thoroughfares to the coast in the north-east and south-east corners.

The name Coogee is said to be taken from a local Aboriginal word koojah which means “smelly place”. Another version is koo-chai or koo-jah, both of which mean “the smell of the seaweed drying” in the Bidigal language. or “stinking seaweed”, a reference to the smell of decaying kelp washed up on the beach. Early visitors to the area, from the 1820s onwards, were never able to confirm exactly what “Coogee” meant, or if it in fact related to Coogee Beach. Some evidence suggests that the word “Coogee” may in fact be the original Aboriginal place name for the next bay to the north, now known as Gordons Bay. Another name, “Bobroi”, was also recalled as the indigenous name for the locality.

The Aboriginal population had largely relocated by the mid-19th century after being decimated by disease and violent clashes with early settlers, though some Aborigines still live in the area today.

Doric Property Inspections can provide pre-purchase property & building inspections and assessment of structural integrity and pest inspection services in most Sydney suburbs. We also provide property, pest, and building inspection services in the Double Bay area.
