What happens if my building inspection displays issues with the property?
Firstly, it’s always a great idea to conduct a Building Inspection when purchasing property (unless you are planning on demolishing the current building).
Building Inspections are important because they may display structural issues with the property you are purchasing which are not visible to the naked (or un-trained) eye.
Building Inspections must be undertaken by a qualified and reputable Building Inspector.
Most of the issues found on a building report are purely just maintenance issues, meaning it’s more of an FYI about things that you might need to investigate fixing in the future.
However, from time to time this Inspection finds major structural defects, in this case rectification is required and this cost is to be bored by the Seller. These rectifications are required to be addressed within an agreed timeframe.
We are here to assist you through these steps and can advise what your best course of action may be.
