Pre purchase building inspection

Before committing, empower yourself with knowledge and information received with a Pre Purchase Building Inspection

When buying a property, allow yourself to make confident, informed decisions by obtaining a comprehensive building report from Bloom Inspections. The purpose of the pre-purchase building inspection is to be provided with accurate advice about the condition of a property from an independant, highly experienced, registered and insured inspector.

The pre-purchase building inspection visually identifies major and minor defects including potential safety hazards. This is documented in an easy-to-read, detailed format, with explanatory photographic evidence in the Bloom Inspection comprehensive building report.

Pre-purchase inspection reports can be used to help protect prospective buyers when signing conditional contracts of sale. Include a special condition “subject to a building inspection” before signing any contract. Don’t be legally bound to a major structural building defect!

Same-day reports are emailed within 24 hours of the inspection. Our professional building inspectors provides you with the confidence needed when making a decision upon purchasing a property.

Step 3: Inspect Property

The onsite inspection typically lasts around 1-2 hours, though the duration may vary based on the requested inspection service and the property’s specifics. This includes a thorough assessment of structures on-site, building interiors and exteriors, roofing and guttering components, subfloor areas and accessible roof voids, fencing and drainage observations.

Step 4: Verbal Briefing

At the conclusion of the onsite inspection, our inspector will phone you to summarise the actual findings and discuss any significant issues or concerns observed during the inspection. This provides instant, often time critical, feedback and important information to our clients. It provides an opportunity to ask questions and obtain a general understanding of what to expect from the detailed report to follow.

Step 5: Compile Report

Compiling the report involves collating all of the inspection results together and presenting it in a thorough, detailed, yet readable format. This process takes longer than the physical inspection itself, however, we believe this is a critical component of our service and sets us apart form our competitors. The report clearly identifies minor and major defects including potential safety hazards, structural concerns and where requested to do so, a timber pest assessment. The report is sent electronically, in most cases, the evening of the inspection.

Step 6: Further Advice

Upon receiving your report, we are at your disposal for additional consultation and clarification as needed. We are delighted to provide ongoing guidance regarding the inspected property or any prospective properties you may be contemplating. We strongly encourage you to explore our testimonials, social media presence, and previous Google reviews for further insight into our services and client satisfaction.
