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.

Company came recommended. My experience: They went above and beyond answering questions I had that were not really their responsibility. Would recommend and would use their service again next time!

Thorough building inspection carried out. Raised a number of items I would not have been aware of if I had taken the cheaper inspection option. I was very pleased with the service given.

We contacted Total Home Inspections for our PCI inspection at short notice after our previous inspection company dropped out of contact. Total Home Inspections managed to work in with our timeline and we’re extremely pleasant to deal with. Kudos to Lauren and Ben for the administrative and scheduling side of things. Mitch performed the inspection and we were very impressed with the level of detail performed. We would not have picked on many of the points identified and we consider the whole process a great investment for the build quality assurance . Thanks Total Homes. I thoroughly recommend your services to other prospective clients Steve and Linda Bolger

Forget footy. THI gets our team of the year award. Their clear and honest advice on a 1963 property we liked helped us greatly. Their inspection reports were to the point (buyer-oriented) on priority repairs, and backed up by good pics (even under the house). They were emailed within 12 hours and staff were available for follow up questions and advice soon afterwards. Congratulations to this highly competent, down-to-earth team. Yep, thanks to your support we did the deed today! G&A, NSW.
