Pre purchase building inspections

A pre purchase building report does not give you a pass or fail” for a property. We simply give you information. And information gives you options. You dont want surprises when you are buying or investing in property; you need to know what youre in for.

Pre sale Inspections

When selling a property, you need the sale to go through as smoothly as possible. A pre sale inspection report shows transparency and honesty. We can identify any potential issues so they can be fixed before becoming negotiation blocks.
