Need a pre-purchase inspection?

Pre-purchase building reports are Insight Building Inspections’ specialty.

Generally, a pre-purchase inspection is compulsory in order to borrow money from a bank to purchase a unit, house or commercial building. However, don’t just think of this as a simple checklist item to be ticked off to get the deal done.
This is an important step in making an informed decision about possibly one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. Treating this lightly may see you end up spending more than you should or dealing with issues down the track that should have been addressed before handover.

Ross’s experience enables him to know the difference and present the information in a way that buyers will understand and can act upon.
