Structural Inspection

Unstable structures can cost thousands to repair. Even though the property you are planning to purchase may appear to be in great condition, it is still important to have a professional inspection.

What's involved

A Structural Inspection focuses solely on the structural soundness of key elements of the building seeking to identify structural defects that might impact the integrity of the building.

One of our experienced building inspectors will attend your property and carry out an inspection, when it is complete you will receive a full report detailing their findings and recommendations.

Our Structural Inspections include, subject to reasonable access:
  • Roof frame
  • Load bearing walls
  • Subfloor structures
  • Concrete slab/footings
  • Safety hazards

Why it's important

Buying property is one of life’s big moments so it is important to do so with all the information available. That is why it is important to have a professional conduct a structural inspection before buying. Understanding the structural integrity of the property that you intend to purchase is in will allow you to move through the sales process with confidence. Armed with the knowledge that our report provides you will be able to buy with peace of mind or potentially, negotiate a lower price or pull out of the sale altogether.

We also offer a Combined Inspection which includes our full Structural Inspection plus our Termite Pest Inspection. We recommend this to all those who are purchasing a property.

We provide detailed reports with all of our inspections.
