Pre purchase building inspections

Before taking possession of your new home, it’s advisable to invest in a pre-purchase building inspection to identify any problems caused by shoddy construction or renovation, as well as pest infestations. By knowing the full history of your potential new home, you can pay an appropriate price and be prepared for any necessary repairs.

Victorian House Inspections offers detailed and thorough Pre-purchase Building Inspection Reports so you can be fully informed when making your investment. Our inspectors cover all of Melbourne and many of the outer suburbs including Sunbury, Mornington Peninsula, Geelong, Phillip Island, and the Bayside area.

Why do you need a Building Inspection? Here’s a sample of what we’ve found recently:

We’ve recently come across several instances of ravenous copototermes in Frankston and Mt Eliza homes. These termites are very destructive.
