What is a building inspection?
Whether moving into a newly constructed house or a house that’s new to you, getting a thorough building inspection is paramount.
A building inspection is designed to give you independent and objective advice about the physical state of a building, enabling you to make an informed decision, generally about whether or not to buy a building.
A building inspection is a snapshot in time, it isn’t a guarantee that defects won’t develop in the future so you should always ensure you refer to a current building inspection.
However, building inspections are also carried out for the purpose of risk management, new construction management, dispute resolution, insurance claims, and compliance with legislation and regulations. Building inspections also inform and educate with regards to renovation and extension decisions.
