Many people think that just because a building is brand new, it must be flawless. Unfortunately, human error, negligence and environmental issues can cause structural and cosmetic issues. If these are not identified before settlement, they can cost thousands to repair. That’s why prospective purchasers should always book new home inspections in Sydney before signing on the dotted line.

When it comes to older established homes, pre purchase building inspections are even more important. Certain types of structures, and some traditional building materials, are prone to issues which can make them unsuitable or unsafe. For example, dampness and termites can damage older timber framed houses. By calling us, you could be saving thousands in repair, replacement and rebuilding expenses.
