Property Inspections in Double Bay Sydney – Pre-purchase, Pest, Pools, & Building Dilapidation Reports
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.

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.

About Double Bay
Double Bay is a harbourside eastern suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia 4 kilometres east of the Sydney central business district. It is the administrative centre of the local government area of the Municipality of Woollahra.
Double Bay has the most expensive real-estate in Australia and takes its name from the bay of Sydney Harbour. It refers to the two geographical formations between Point Piper and Darling Point, which are interrupted by a miniature point in between. The eastern part is also known as Blackburn Cove. Colloquially it is often referred to as “Double Pay”, a term coined in the 1980s, due to the high income of people living there, and the nature of the shopping area which features high-end fashion labels.
Double Bay developed soon after initial European Settlement in 1788. In the early years of the colony, Double Bay was used as shelter for fishermen who would regularly fish around the harbour. Farming mostly cattle and lettuce a farm had developed and by 1814 it had increased to envelop the valleys leading into the area currently known as Woollahra, Bondi Junction, Bellevue Hill, and Point Piper.
