Comprehensive assessment with a full property report

Pre-Purchase House Inspections

Buildqual divider

For many people, buying a house is one of the most significant purchases they will ever make. That’s why it makes sense to engage BuildQual to complete a comprehensive pre-purchase property check of your next purchase, prior to making an unconditional offer.

What do we look for?

BuildQual‘s team of professionals will complete a thorough and comprehensive assessment of the entire house, to enable us to provide you with a full property report. In this report, we will explain any structural issues, major and minor repair work, and any other problems that we detect.

When we run a pre-purchase building inspection, our qualified inspectors cover the entire dwelling, working methodically through a detailed checklist.

  • Moisture readings
  • Wall alignment
  • Major structural defects and faults
  • Minor structural defects
  • Expected future maintenance
  • Floor levels – on an as-required basis and at extra cost.

Our Standard Residential Assessment dictates that we then provide the purchaser with a photographic record of the home, along with a full building report, and a detailed damage assessment.

What if the house I’m purchasing needs repair work?

You don’t need to be alarmed when you see our pre-purchase building inspection report. The purpose of our assessments is not to discourage you from buying a home that requires some remedial work, but to show you exactly what needs to be done, and enable a discussion to begin. From there, you can make a decision about purchasing the house in question, based on factual data. You will also be able to share this report with your bank and/or insurance company, if required.

What we offer you…

A quality, easy to understand, jargon-free building inspection report, within 48 hours (often 24 hours) of us visiting your property. We give you more for less.

It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with such genuine people who are so accommodating on all levels.

The report contained all of the necessary information to satisfy our curiosity about the property, as well as providing valuable details relating to the earthquake damage and the suggested remedial paths required.
