Buying a new home is one of the biggest and longest-lasting commitments that you make as a responsible adult.
The feeling of being a homeowner in your own right is a really amazing one, but before you get to that stage of personal satisfaction, you need to make sure that you are making all of the right decisions when it comes to the property in question.
Before signing your name on anything that is going to tie you to the property for the foreseeable future, you need to make sure there are no hidden negatives, and here at PCT Building And Pest Inspections, we have got you covered.
To help you get a better idea of your situation, here are some tips for what to look out for in a thorough building and pest inspection on the Gold Coast.
- Repair Issues
Any small repair issues in the structure of the property will be your responsibility once you have actually put pen to paper, but any problems found during an inspection can be factored into an offer price.
You might end up getting a better deal on the house because of the work you identify needs to be done to it after sale.
- Safety Concerns
Pay special attention to any elements of the property that can be seen as safety hazards. You want to make sure that the property you are interested in buying isn’t essentially a fire trap that would put you or your family in danger in an emergency.
- Creepy Crawlies
It is essential that any prospective home is checked for things like termites and any other kind of infestation that might be invisible to the naked eye.
- Correct Wiring
Homeowners have a tendency to overlook the wiring in their houses, so make sure that you have all the wiring checked out to ensure that it meets the appropriate standards and regulations.
- Outbuilding Ideas
