It might come to you as a surprise, but in many cases, the building inspection for your North Melbourne property that you order from a run of the mill inspector might not be all it’s cracked up to be. In some situations, the “inspector” is not fully licensed and does not have the skills or experience to identify truly everything that could potentially be wrong with a property. Often that manifests itself as a lax examination of potential environmental hazards that can be crippling to a property sale. South Eastern Property Inspections are licensed and registered experts at building inspections in North Melbourne, and want to provide some helpful tips for getting the most out of an inspection if you are a potential buyer.
Essential Points to Keep in Mind for Your House Inspection in North Melbourne
You’ve got to keep your wits about you to keep from being bamboozled. There are things that you as a buyer should do to ensure that the process goes well and that you get a building inspector that you trust and can communicate with easily.
Get an inspector you can trust – This is paramount. Often a real estate agency may saddle you with a poor recommendation for a building inspector, thinking that they’re a dime-a-dozen and not all that different from one another. This perception, of course, is untrue, and to keep from getting stuck with an inspector you just can’t work with, you should interview them beforehand. Learn about how much experience they have, their methods, what areas of expertise they purport to cover, etc. You’ll find during your enquiries that our building inspection experience is unparalleled.
Think about your needs – An inspector can tailor what they focus on the most to your individual situation. As such, you should consider your situation and how that will affect what you will need most from a potential home purchase. If you have children, for instance, your needs will be weighted heavily toward child safety aspects of the home. If you are single and childless on the other hand, your focuses will be tilted elsewhere.
Cover the essentials – And make sure that your inspector includes environmental toxins in their house inspection. Dangers of lead paint, radon, and asbestos can pose a significant risk, and should thus be identified and dealt with before moving in. Sometimes these issues require specialised professionals to deal with, so it’s good to be able to take care of everything at once.
