4 Key Advantages to Getting A Building Inspection Report

Buying a home in Perth is one of the most exciting purchases you will ever make! It is a milestone to remember, especially if you are buying your first home.

At BCI WA, we understand that it can be a challenging time too, especially as there is a lot to consider.

Until the day you move in, it is hard to have the full picture of what you are walking into. However, armed with a pre-purchase building inspection report; we can provide you with assurance and give you insight into what you may be stepping into.

Here are 4 key advantages of getting a building inspection report done in Perth.

#1 A building inspection report instils you with confidence about your purchase.


You want to know that your home is of good quality and standard. As a new homeowner in Perth, you want to be reassured that your home is safe and hazard-free. From a first glance, the home may look like it is in perfect condition, but as expert building inspectors, we have come across our fair share of disappointments. With our inspection report, we thoroughly review and investigate the home to ensure that all aspects of the property are not only safe but up to the standards of the local building code.


#2 If potential issues have been picked up, this can result in a negotiation.

If we do identify potential issues throughout our initial inspection, we will flag that to you and inform you of what may happen if this issue is not resolved. If this issue is not serious but still causes you to feel as if the home is not worth the asking price, you can use this as a tool for negotiation during the final phases.


#3 Further recommendations from experts.


Based on our inspection of the overall property, we will provide you with a detailed report outlining all areas of concern. We will also follow up with this by recommending further experts if needed. For example, if we discover that you could have structural issues or pests, we may recommend experts to you who specialise in fixing those problems. At BCI WA, our Perth building inspectors want to ensure that you have all the appropriate and relevant information so that you can make an informed decision on if you would like to go through with buying the property or look elsewhere.


#4 Save time, money and unnecessary stress!


There are few debates and doubts about the cost of a building inspection report in Perth, but when you look at the bigger picture, by being cautious and taking this extra step prior to making the huge decision to buy a property, you are saving money and time. If you do not wish to get a building inspection report, you face the risk of buying a home with structural defects and other problem areas which could cost thousands of dollars to replenish. A couple of hundred dollars for an inspection report compared to spending thousands of dollars on a home you recently purchased is well worth it. A building inspection report will not only save money but will save time and any unnecessary stress due to issues with the Perth home.
