Pre-Purchase Building Inspection for Commercial Property (Low Rise)

Houspect Pre-Purchase Building Inspections on commercial properties provide independent and expert reports for Investors in Greater Sydney and regional NSW including Southern Highlands, Wollongong, Central Coast, Newcastle/Hunter and surrounding areas.

When it comes to successful property investment it is essential to know the full condition of the property before making the important decision to buy or not to buy.

Not knowing the condition of a property can cost you thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs and maintenance not to mention considerable time and effort to rectify these issues. No one wants to buy a commercial property and then pay to fix problems that could have been identified beforehand.

A pre-purchase building inspection is fundamental to ensure you are fully aware of any issues or potential problems with the property you are considering buying.

What Does the Report Provide?

A Houspect Pre-Purchase Building Inspection report on a commercial property is a comprehensive and independent document completed in accordance with Australian Standards.

The report describes the condition of all the various building components and external structures and whether they will require your attention. The report will explain any existing problems and advise on repairs and also indicate any remedial or maintenance requirements that you need to be aware of prior to purchasing the property.

The building report will contain photos of notable items so that you can see what issues may exist. Our reports are easy to read and provide a glossary of technical terms to help you understand the report.

If you have particular concerns about any specific area of the commercial property you are looking to buy, we can instruct our building inspector to address these issues specifically during the inspection. Simply advise us of your concerns at the time of your booking.
