Structural Only Building Inspection

Houspect provides professional Structural Building Inspections and reports for home owners and investors in Darwin and surrounds, in the Northern Territory.

A structural building inspection focuses on the structural soundness of key building elements. The structural building inspection may suit the needs of both vendors and home purchasers/investors. For purchasers, it is a less expensive option than a full residential pre-purchase building inspection.

A structural building inspection is less expensive because it does not provide repair and maintenance details and related recommendations on minor and cosmetic components of the building.

If all you need to know is whether the building is structurally sound and whether there are structural issues, our building inspectors can provide the less expensive structural only inspection.

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.

For a structural building inspection, our qualified building inspector focuses on identifying and commenting only on any existing structural defects within the building, as well as other key structural elements such as retaining walls, fences and outbuildings.

Your report also contains a glossary of technical terms to help you understand the report.
