27 Building & Pest inspections
Play • 36 min
Building & pest inspections are a vital step in the due diligence process. I recommend getting one for EVERY type of property - even brand new properties and apartments. Listen to this episode to find out why!
Today I'm joined by Craig Mace from Mace Building inspections. We explore:
Why you should consider getting a building (and sometimes pest) inspection
The types of issues an inspection may uncover, including
Structural issues
Major defects
Minor defects
Safety hazards
Quality of the renovation
Whether inspectors can provide you an idea around how much it could cost to fix issues identified
WHEN you should get one (eg before or after you submit the offer)
How much they cost
The importance of a 'verbal debrief' after an inspection
The limitations of a building inspection
The importance of wording your building inspection clause correctly
