What to expect from a building inspection?
Here are the answers to some common questions about builders inspections.
Does the inspection only cover the inside of the building?
No, a building inspection will look at both the inside and outside of the property. Typically areas covered include:
- Site including drainage
- Subfloor including electrical connections and plumbing
- Roof and flashings
- Exterior including cladding, windows and doors
- Interior – including notes of acceptable wear and tear and damage
Depending on your needs, it can include other buildings on a property eg granny flats, garage and other structures.
Does the building inspection cover checking for leaks or damp?
Most standard building inspections include non-invasive moisture testing and possibly thermal imaging moisture testing which will indicate any problems depending on the purpose of the building. If the problem looks severe you may need to undertake invasive moisture testing for further investigation.
How quickly can a builders inspection be done?
That might depend on the workload, but at InnoHome we can often offer the same day service.
What do I get at the end of the inspection?
In most cases, a written report will be supplied. This will include in-depth comments on all areas covered during the inspection, not just a set of tick-boxes. Choose a verbal report if you need a quicker response. This can then be followed with a written copy.
What can I do with my building inspection?
The report may just make up your mind for you about buying the house or not. Inspection reports can be used to negotiate with the vendor. You may ask them to carry out repairs or reduce the price to allow for work. Reports can also be provided for banks or solicitors if required as part of lending agreements.
