Most houses that are available in the marketplace have faults of some description. It’s just a matter of identifying whether the house has minor or major flaws or if it is riddled with defects. However, finding these issues is not easy as they can be often overlooked especially if you have an untrained eye. Most sellers will do everything to sell the property quickly even if it means covering the problems you may find in the property.
Before you commit to buy your desired property or before signing a contract, it would be best if you hire a professional inspector to conduct a thorough inspection on the property to protect your investment as well as avoid nasty surprises later on once you’ve moved in. The inspector will assess everything like whether the house was constructed in accordance with the council’s building standard and whether you can expect repairs and maintenance issues in the next few years.
Ideally, a building inspection should be done before you agree to sign the contract so that if ever you find that the property doesn’t meet your standards, you can always walk away and find another one. However, this is not always the case, as most sellers or real estate agents do not want some delays. So in this situation, the buyers will include building inspection as a condition to purchase the property.
If in your case, if the property you are eying for is popular and the seller or agent wants to move quickly, you have the building inspection as your condition of the contract. Make sure that the condition is clear and should be in your favour. You want to protect yourself, make the wording right that building and pest inspection is done and is satisfactory to the buyer. If the inspection report consists of negative issues, the seller should agree to fix those problems within a set time frame, and if the seller refuses to do it, the buyer has the option to terminate the contract.
