Every cost matters. This is especially true whether you are a first time homebuyer or a property investor. Every issue that needs to be addressed comes directly out of your pocket. These costs can be significant depending on the structural condition and integrity of the property.
Undetected structural issues also pose a liability, especially when health and personal safety are at risk.
Knowing these details is absolutely important before you continue with a property deal.
Even renovators needs to be aware of potential structural issues before continuing with home renovations.
New constructions may be affected or even halted altogether depending on how severe the structural damage is. The cost for a building inspection pales in comparison to how much it would cost for major repairs in the future.
All the residential structural inspections we carry out adhere to the AS 4349.1-2007 Australian building inspection standards.
