As part of your comprehensive pre-purchase building inspection, Action property Inspections conducts detailed underfloor inspections.
The underfloor area is where the house is supported, making it a vital stage in the inspection process. Components such as stumps, retaining and foundation walls, and tie downs are important sections of the underfloor inspection as they are vital to the structural integrity of the building. Problems with your new home’s foundations are the single biggest risk to your blue chip investment turning out to be a lemon.
Our detailed reports, including photos and layman’s explanations give you 100% peace of mind. And if there’s a problem? Our pre-purchase building inspection reports (see a sample report) are your best weapon in reducing your purchase price, or getting out of a bad contract. Don’t you want that kind of security?
