Houspect Structural Building Inspections provide independent and expert reports for home owners and investors in Greater Sydney and regional NSW including Southern Highlands, Wollongong, Central Coast, Newcastle/Hunter and surrounding areas.
A structural building inspection or vendor inspection focuses on the structural integrity of a building and any external structures on a property. Vendors and home buyers/investors alike can benefit from a structural building inspection. For purchasers, it is a less expensive option than a full residential pre-purchase building inspection as it only refers to structural issues and rectifications and does not provide repair and maintenance details on other components of the building.
Likewise for Vendors, a structural report allows you to rectify any major issues present prior to placing your property on the market. The inspection may also help eliminate last minute reductions on buyer’s offers if they are already aware of any issues that may exist.
If all you need to know is whether a building is structurally sound or whether there are structural issues, our building inspectors can inspect and report on the structural components of the property.
What Does the Report Provide?
A Houspect Structural Building Inspection report is a thorough and independent document completed in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.0.
Our structural building inspection report will comment on the current structural condition of a building as well as other structural elements such as retaining walls, fences and outbuildings. Our qualified building inspectors will identify any existing structural defects and advise a course of action or recommend whether further investigation by a qualified structural engineer is required.
Your report will contain photos of notable items so that you can see what issues may exist and what they look like. It also contains a glossary of technical terms to help you understand the report.
