Commercial Pre-Purchase Inspection

Houspect provides professional commercial property Pre-Purchase Building Inspections and reports in Darwin and surrounds, in the Northern Territory.

As an investor or business owner, you already understand the importance of ticking all the boxes before making important business decisions, and buying a property is no different.

A pre-purchase building inspection is one of those decisions. Not knowing the condition of a property can cost you thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs or rectification costs. No one wants to buy a commercial property and then pay to correct issues that could have been identified beforehand, which is why a pre-purchase building inspection is essential.

What Does 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 building inspection report will provide you with a building report describing the current condition of key building elements and whether they require maintenance and repairs.

Your report also contains 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, simply let us know when you book your Houspect Building Inspection and we will ensure that this area is examined during the inspection.
