New Home Building Inspections in Perth
Are you buying a brand new home or building a brand new one? Believe it or not, even though it is new, you should get a pre-purchase property inspection before the keys are handed over to you. Not all homes are built with good quality, and our new home building inspections in Perth will ensure that any low-quality workmanship, safety issues, and defects are discovered before it is too late.
With the rise of homeownership and property investment in Western Australia, it is important to safeguard your property. In our experience at BCI, it is essential to have an impartial 3rd party conduct a new home building inspection to make sure that your assets are truly safe.
There are several reasons why people do not think that it is essential to have a pre-purchase property inspection for your new home:

The Builder Has A Good Reputation
Although there are many reputable builders in Perth, it is possible for the tradespeople, contractors, and installers to not build ‘the perfect house’. There can be many reasons for mistakes to be made during the building process, as there are many people performing numerous tasks to complete your home.
No matter how reputable and qualified the builder is, there may be some defects that occur due to human error. The purpose of new home building inspections is to discover these defects before it is too late.
There Is A Builders Warranty

However, not all builders are ethical and will follow up on warranties during the maintenance period, resulting in many defects, legal bills, personal stress and aggravation as well as a home that may be difficult to sell.
The best way to avoid this is to conduct a new home building inspection using an independent party like Building Consultancy & Inspections prior to settlement or at least before the final handover.
