More about our Pre-Purchase Building Inspections

Buying a home is one big investment. So it makes sense to protect yourself from purchasing a Perth home that may be a drain on your finances down the line. Ideally, before signing on the dotted line, arrange for a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection. Total Home Inspections takes the stress out of home buying. We identify structural problems and notify you about them, especially how much it costs to fix them and how they will affect your home over time, so you can negotiate a lower price for the property.

A well-defined, professionally-written Building Inspection report gives you peace of mind when buying property. It points out areas of concern like electrical problems and rotting window frames that many property owners try to conceal. Better yet, it helps you identify safety concerns that require immediate attention.

All our Building Inspection reports are written by a qualified and experienced consultants. The finished report is written in a style that’s easy for laymen to understand and provides both photographic and written evidence of defects while identifying the contractor required to rectify them. We carry out a thorough inspection before completing the report.

The cost of a Pre Purchase Building Inspection in Perth depends on the property’s size, type and location. Also taken into account is the type of inspection to be done. For instance, some inspections are done to establish the viability of reno work, while others are needed to note the existence of termite infestation. As a result, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Structural inspections cover the roof structure, subfloor and the building’s interior and exterior. Premium inspections cover everything else from plumbing, roof cover and air-conditioning to electrical fittings, home appliances and outdoor structures. The purpose of each inspection is to identify major and minor flaws and safety hazards. When organising an estimate for repairs or renovations, our consultant will advise you on what’s suitable and if there’s any further cost.

Knowing the real value of a property is important for sellers and buyers to get the best deal. Sellers need to know they’re getting a fair price for their property and buyers need to know they’re getting value for money. An independent Building Inspection enlightens both parties of the property’s condition and allows potential buyers to calculate the cost of fixing defects before agreeing on a price.

I cannot recommend Total Home Inspections enough. My partner and I were recommended this company by our broker. Throughout a pretty unique settlement process (issues that have arisen with the property in the lead up to settlement) this company has been amazingly helpful, contactable and flexible with our needs. Lauren (Operations Manager) and Ben (Inspector) were who we worked with throughout this process. They were so friendly, helpful, honest and professional in their dealings with us and in the work standard that was completed. Thorough reports were produced at the end of our inspection and we were also sent additional information about how to understand our reports, with the offer given to us to contact them with any questions. Being first home buyers, it can be very overwhelming to dive into a process with so many requirements, but I am truly grateful our broker suggested this company to us (especially because we were all in for more than we thought, given the problems that ended up occurring with the state of the property prior to inspection). I will definitely be suggesting these guys to anyone I know in need of an inspection, or rely on their services myself again when necessary in future. Thank you so much again, Ben and Lauren- we’re so grateful for everything you’ve helped us with and your flexibility!!

Very experienced team and we are lucky to have them from slab pre-pour up to practical completion inspection. Thanks to the whole team for being part of our building journey. We can never put a price on the peace of mind we had all through our house build. Highly recommended!

Fast, efficient, friendly and thorough. We went with their premium bundle for peace of mind and got lots of photos along with the inspection report. Thankfully our house had only very minor issues, many of which were just maintenance to attend to in the coming years. I liked how they moisture tested the walls around the showers; they discovered a couple of totally invisible leaks which I'll be able to seal as soon as we move in. I'd happily engage them again next time we're buying.
