Here at ACTTAB Inspection Reports, we provide clients like you with building reports on properties that are currently on the market and up for sale. Purchasing one of these reports means that you will not have to go through the hassle of getting a building or property inspection specialist out – the only thing you will have to do is click on the particular inspection you’d like to buy and complete the easy purchase process. An added bonus is that once your payment has been processed, you will be able to download your property inspection report immediately.
Save a Significant Amount of Time, Hassle and Money
One of the most significant benefits you will enjoy when purchasing one of our readily available building reports is that you will save a lot of time and effort because of not having to still have a complete building inspection carried out. This not only saves you a lot of time and helps speed up the purchase process; you save a lot of money as well in that you don’t have to cover the cost of having the actual inspection performed.
Reasons Why It’s Crucial to Obtain a Property Inspection Report
Obtaining and viewing a property inspection report before agreeing to purchase a home will help determine whether you are making a sound financial decision or not. If you peruse the inspection report and there have been a number of structural, plumbing or electrical issues that have been detected, you will have the option of walking away – instead of being caught at a later stage and having to foot the bills for repairs like these. In some cases, there are structural defects or issues that are not able to be rectified without having to perform a partial or even full demolition of the property, which would be financially devastating, especially if you have just moved into a home.
If you are willing and prepared to put in a lot of work to get a sub-par home up to a livable standard and one which passes inspection, you may be able to use our property report in another handy way – to lower the price of it. In many cases, being armed with a recent property inspection report that clearly notes defects will enable you to use it as a means of pointing out to the seller why they should consider reducing their asking price if they want a fast sale.
Other additional benefits of obtaining an inspection report before agreeing to purchase a home are it can not only be used to help you plan a long-term budget for repairs that may be needed at a later stage; a qualified building inspector will be able to read through it and inform you how any major structural issues will affect the property as time goes on. This in turn can help you decide whether you are willing to live with the issues or if you would prefer to continue searching for a property that has fewer problems.
What Information Will a Building Inspection Report Contain?
A complete and accurate building inspection report will contain information such as:
- The physical address of the property that has been inspected
- Date that the inspection was carried out and completed
- The full scope of the inspection that was performed
In cases where a building inspector is not able to thoroughly check all areas of a property, these will be carefully noted, along with the reason (s) why they were not checked. Thereafter, the inspector will compile a summary of the overall condition of the property to include in the report. The report will include information pertaining to any building defects that may have been found, and in most cases, recommendations will be included regarding whether any further assessment will be required. This can be in the form of a pest inspection or even having a structural engineer come out to assess the home if required.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Why must I ensure that I obtain a property inspection report before buying a home?

Absolutely! All of the inspection reports we have for sale on our website have been compiled in such a way that they are easy enough for home buyers to read and understand.

5. What type of information is included in the building reports you have for sale?
