Don’t make a costly mistake

Building and pest issues can cost big bucks to fix. With a PPI Building Inspection, you’ll know exactly what you’re in for, before you sign on the dotted line.

When you’re armed with this information, you can make a sound decision about whether or not it is a good buy or a bad buy. And, if there are issues, you can use the report to help you negotiate a lower purchase price.

A PPI Building Inspection will tell you

  • if there are any major defects or structural problems
  • if there has been dodgy building work or issues covered up
  • if there are leaks or waterproofing issues
  • what the minor defects are and what your ongoing maintenance costs will be
  • what it will cost you to get the property up to scratch.

Know what you’re buying

The property you’re looking at could look fine on the surface, but have a long list of defects and issues that you can’t see. Defects and issues that could potentially cost you tens of thousands of dollars to fix. So it makes sense to get a PPI building inspection and building report and know exactly what you’re buying, before you buy.

Preparing to make an offer, or getting ready to bid at auction

Generally the experts agree that the best thing you can do before you buy is to get a Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection. It will tell you exactly what is going on with the property, so you know if it is going to be a smart investment or a money pit. If there are issues present, the report can also give you a solid basis to negotiate a lower purchase price.
