Building And Pest Inspections Services Newcastle & Lake Macqaurie
Whether you’re about to buy or sell a property in Newcastle, or settle on a new build, a pest & building inspection is a smart investment that could save you a fortune in the future.
Pre-Purchase Building Inspections
A pre-purchase building and pest inspection will reveal any issues with the property before you buy, so you won’t be blindsided by expensive defects discovered after you’ve signed on the dotted line. Being fully aware of what you’re buying can arm you with the necessary information to negotiate a lower price (e.g. to account for future repair costs), or even sway your purchasing decision entirely to avoid falling into a money pit.
Pre-Sale Property Inspections
A pre-sale property inspection is strongly recommended for all types of sales. A pre-sale building and pest inspection will identify and allow you to fix any issues before they deter prospective buyers. Disruptions in the sale process are common if the buyer discovers costly defects that change their decision to purchase or give them reason to demand a lower price. So save the stress of offers falling through and book a pre-sale property inspection with Lake Macquarie Building Inspections today.
Construction Handover Inspections
When you’re about to pay a hefty sum for a new build, you deserve quality workmanship. A handover inspection can be carried out on any new build with a determined defects liability period stated in the contract. As an independent party, our inspection ensures your new property or renovation meets the top standards of a licensed builder. This external and internal property inspection will identify any defects and/or incomplete finishes, so you can be certain your builder has completed the work properly before you pay the bill.
We inspect all properties, from old residential dwellings to brand new commercial spaces, assessing their structural conditions and quality of finishings. The purpose of this building inspection is to detect any defects and damage to the building, so that you are aware of the remedial work that should be carried out by a professional tradesman. Our certified building inspector will give you expert advice on the potential impact of any faults, how much they may cost to fix, and exactly what types of repair would be most effective. We can also provide a professional second opinion if you wish to make an insurance claim e.g. storm damage.
Approximately 50 percent of older properties in Australia have had a degree of termite activity at some point, so don’t take the risk of turning a blind eye. Instead, make a smart investment and book a timber pest inspection for your property. Termites generally avoid open air and bright conditions, meaning their colonies are hidden underground or within wooden structures. That’s why it’s important to hire a trained professional who knows exactly where to look for these harmful pests.
