Seeking a Western Australian / Maida Vale Pre-Purchase Building Inspection is essential for home buyers and investors - but why?

Get your independent building inspection from Red Earth for properties in Maida Vale Call us because we are Registered Builders.

Affordable Building Inspectors Maida Vale.

We'll inspect the property and identify major and minor issues.

A considerable life choice, such as buying a new home or property, should not be rushed. After one or two views and open houses, it can sometimes still prove difficult to identify the real condition of the house. Therefore, it’s highly beneficial for you to seek assistance from an independent building surveyor who is certified by WA Registered Builder with over 20 years construction experience before confirming your purchase!

While it is possible to have a pre-purchase building inspection conducted on the property you intend to buy before making an offer or bidding at auction, sellers and their agents often discourage this. In most cases in WA, a building inspection should be included as part of the Offer to Purchase Contract conditions.

Before a contract is made binding, buyers can impose certain stipulations that need to be met. These terms often include “finance”, “termite inspection” and or “building inspections”. It is essential for the pre-purchase building condition clause wording to clearly outline how these conditions should operate.
