Building Inspections Gold Coast
Buying a property is one of the biggest commitments you can make in your life, so before doing so you want to make sure that you know exactly what you are in for! The most effective way to make sure that you have knowledge of every single thing the potential property has to offer is by arranging a building inspection.
Here at PCT Building Inspections, we make it our business to thoroughly assess each assigned location, completing a thorough checklist to ensure that no corners are cut and no leaves are left unturned. To help you on the prospective buyer side of the equation, here are some tips for getting the most out of your building inspection on the Gold Coast.
- It is always good practice to make sure that you are present during your home inspection. If you show up and are there rather than leaving the inspector to their own devices, you can point out areas of concern or interest that you think need extra attention.
- Make sure to shop around and hire an inspector that you really trust. A detailed discussion during an appointment should be enough to know if you trust them or not, and the trust is important because you want as honest an appraisal of the house as possible.
- Don’t be afraid to ask all and any questions as you go around with the inspector. The more you know and understand about the process, the easier things are going to be going forward. Consider yourself a sponge and the inspector the fount of knowledge!
- It is usually general practice anyway, but make sure that you get your inspector to take pictures of their findings as they go. They will be going into spaces like the roof, crawl space, attic etc. that you might not necessarily want to witness for yourself. Picture evidence is one of the best and simplest ways to help you and others involved understand the issues at hand.
