So, you’re looking to buy a house?

Keep your cool

Buying a house can bring about many emotions, especially if you’re a first time buyer. Mainly, you’ll hopefully feel quite excited, but you should also try to stay level headed and sensible so that you remember to think about everything before you actually make the commitment to buy. One of the most important steps in buying a house for the first time is the process of getting a building inspection. This is so important because it will uncover any major issues with the property before you commit to buy. Some mortgage lenders in Australia require you to get a property inspection before they will loan you any money, so it is important that if your property is in Melbourne, you should choose a company that can provide property inspections Melbourne banks will trust. Safe and Sound Property Inspections is just that company!


A report you can rely on

Whether we are carrying out building inspections in Sydney, or house inspections Templestowe, we ensure that you get a highly reliable building inspection report that you understand. Your report will highlight any major structural defects that the property has. This is important because it means that you will be aware of any building work that could be needed. Builders are expensive, but aside from this, you won’t want to purchase a home and move into it if is unsafe. As our company name suggests, we want to make sure that you are safe in your new home. In addition to the structural issues, you will also be notified of any possible maintenance that could be needed before you move in. All of this can get expensive, so we also provide a rough estimate of how much it could cost you to get the property into a safe state. Whilst many properties only need a small amount of repair, we do come across properties where there are hidden issues that have been detected by our building inspections. If this happens to you, our report will allow you to decide whether or not to go ahead with the purchase of the property.
