A Pre-Purchase Home 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.

Well that's a worse case scenario but how would you know without a thorough inspection? Is there asbestos? Rotten Timber Piles? Has the house been used as a meth lab? Is the foundation going to give way? Mold? Rising Damp? Insulation? Bora? Dux Quest Plumbing? TRS wiring? VIR wiring? Pile Failure? Water ingress? Scrim? The list goes on and on and it's always better to know before you buy just what it is your buying. The best basis for you purchase is full knowledge of the property !
