Building Inspection Lismore

If you're looking to purchase a property in the Lismore area, a building inspection is an important step of the buying process to ensure you know the true condition of the property.

As one of the most significant financial decisions you will make in your lifetime, getting independent building inspectors who work for you (not the seller or real estate agent) is essential for making an informed purchasing decision. 

Our professional building inspector James will provide you with a comprehensive pre-purchase building inspection report (usually sent within 24hrs of conducting the inspection).

Termite Inspection Lismore

In the same way, it's critical to get a combined building and pest inspection to check for any termite activity or timber pest infestation.

Termites and their colonies are typically underground, out of sight or within wood materials so the termite damage is hidden out of sight. Termites can cause some serious damage to properties and can impact the property's structural integrity, resulting in costly repairs. 

This is why it's a good idea to get a professional pest inspector who knows where to look for termite damage with the latest equipment on hand.

After Your Building & Pest Inspection

You have received your comprehensive report, now what?

After your inspection, the building report will highlight any major and minor defects to the property and their urgency. It will also indicate any conditions conducive to structural defects, such as pest damage, high moisture levels or cracks in the foundation.

Our reports are easy to follow, highly detailed and will include recommendations to help you make an informed decision on your property. If you are unable to attend the inspection or are unsure about something in the report, contact your Lismore inspector immediately for clarification before making any decisions.

Here are some basic tips on what to do once you've received your report:

  • Firstly, if you are unsure about anything in your building report, do not consult those who are unqualified. This is a sure-fire way to misinterpret the report - for clarification, contact your inspector instead.
  • Remember, your building inspector's job is not to pass or fail a property but to flag any current or future defects. This is so that you are aware of the condition of your property or the property you intend to buy.
  • If your report has identified any major defects the next step is to obtain a quote from a specialist in that field, be it a licensed builder or carpenter, engineer, or electrician. Make sure to 'shop around' before committing to a quote to get the best possible value for money. If time constraints are tight and do not allow for a quote to be obtained, speak with your lawyer or legal representative for legal advice.
  • The role of the inspector is to find faults in a property, so please do not ask them for a price estimate on any rectifications the property might need. An inspector does not know the full scope or magnitude of the work needed and a professional trade is required to give an accurate quote.
  • Following a pre-purchase inspection, don't ask the building inspector if the price you are paying for the property is appropriate - it is not their job to comment on your property purchase, nor are they qualified to do so.
  • It is ultimately up to you to determine what is an acceptable price. It is wise to do some research and compare similar properties in the area you intend to buy before making your decision.

The great majority of buildings we inspect have faults to some degree. This should not necessarily deter you from purchasing a property. The final decision is up to you and depends on your individual circumstances. Our detailed reports provide an in-depth description of the property and any faults found, to equip you with the facts and allow you to make an informed decision.
