The Importance of a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection
By Jamie Mitchell

No one should ever consider buying a property without having a building inspection done. More often than not, new home owners discover hidden flaws in the building that were cleverly camouflaged for the sale of the property, it can be very expensive and time consuming for the new owners should these flaws be serious.

No matter what sort of home you are looking at buying, whether old or new, do not purchase the home without having it inspected, or it could end up a costly mistake. A building inspector is specially trained to detect hidden problems that can cause you serious trouble in the future. These include structural problems as well as faulty plumbing and electrical. Termites for example can cause disastrous problems, it is not uncommon to find termites have eaten away an entire inside of a wall of floor, but leaving little trace to the untrained eye.

When you buy a house you need to be sure there are no hidden defects that could cause you unnecessary expense and hardship down the track. A building inspection will identify such problems if any, and you will be able to make a better decision on whether you should purchase the home or not. A lot of people think that studying the house plans will do, but the building inspector will tell you that there is much more you need to know.

It can be very exiting when you find a home that is just what you have always wanted. But no matter how excited you are, don’t rush into finalizing anything until you have had a building inspection completed. that way you’ll know whether the home you are want to buy is worth the investment you are about to make.
