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 would absolutely recommend this company to anyone who needs a comprehensive pre sale building and termite inspection on a property. Ben was very thorough and professional. We were given access to the report on the same day it was completed and Ben was available to clarify any questions we had. We will be using them to re check the property after some issues were discovered. They are an exceptional company who instilled a lot of confidence in me and gave me peace of mind regarding what needed to be fixed on the property.

They are a very professional team. Lauren was amazing during the communication and plan for the inspection time. I had some special requirements for the time of inspection and she was really helpful. I requested the Premium package due to the age of the house and the report was beyond my expectations. Very satisfied with them. Well done guys.
