Pre Purchase Building Inspections

Servicing Melbourne and surrounding areas
pre purchase inspections house front showing porchBuying a house is probably the biggest Investment you will ever make. So before you become financially and emotionally committed to your new home let the property and inspection report specialists carry out a pre purchase building inspection to make sure you are not purchasing somebody else’s problems that may be a financial & health burden to you and your family in the future. Although you may cast your eye over the property during your inspection, this is never enough to fully assess the structural performance or costly maintenance requirements that may be underlying.

Make a well informed decision when buying your new home!

Building inspections are very important because they not only identify major structural damage to a new or older home but also faults disguised by cosmetic improvements which could be potentially dangerous if they do not meet building standards. If these faults are serious it can be extremely expensive, not to mention time consuming, to have them rectified.

I’ve used Bell Building on multiple occasions and have always experienced excellent customer service and prompt reports. Their knowledge is fantastic and they’re always happy to go through reports or give their opinions on any additional questions I have about the property.
