Not sure if you need one of our building inspections?

For as little as 0.1 per cent of the asking price of the house, you could know for sure if it’s worth your time, or if you need to do any work before selling.

Buying or selling a home or business will be one of the biggest transactions of your life, so do it with confidence.

Knowing that there are serious issues with a house can either give you a reason to find something better or can strengthen your position at the negotiating table. Equally, a pre purchase property inspection can give potential buyers of your current home peace of mind, or can even tell you that you’re not ready to sell, giving you the opportunity to do some needed renovations or repairs.

Before you book one of our house inspections, take a look for yourself. Regardless if you’re a buyer or a seller, a quick check of the property can tell you for sure if you need professional property inspections services. This is not an exhaustive list, and is just a small selection of obvious things to check for. If you see any one of them or are still unsure about the condition of your home, get professional building inspectors in.
