A Pre-Purchase Home and building Inspection is a visual evaluation of the condition and functionality of the home’s major systems and components, which are visible and accessible. For example, sub-floor is inspected, ceiling space is inspected, cladding system is inspected, site, fences and retaining is inspected, doors and windows are opened and closed, roof-covering materials are inspected, and the air-conditioning and heating systems are checked/operated. The inspector will also investigate crawl spaces and ceiling spaces for defects, run the shower(s), and flush the toilet(s). Following your inspection, you will receive a written report.
