New build inspection and building condition report services at Let’s Take A Look

One of the most daunting aspects of purchasing property in Townsville are the new home inspections and the process of purchasing a house. This is true for everyone who now owns property in Townsville or plans to do so in the future. How can you be sure of the sort of real estate you are purchasing in the highly competitive Townsville real estate market? How are you able to ensure that there are no unseen issues, such as termites, wood rot, water damage, collapsing foundations, or low-quality construction? What should you do, considering that the prior homeowner might not even be aware that things are there?

Because there is no legal duty for a property vendor to disclose construction flaws, homes are purchased in a buyer beware market. New home building inspections can protect property purchasers against investing in fault-ridden buildings. As qualified building and timber pest inspectors, Let's Take a Look will conduct new home inspections and will then do a condition assessment report on the condition of the property. This will enable you to make an informed decision and will offer you peace of mind.

What happens during a typical new build inspection?

The general structure of the property, as well as its current state, will be inspected in detail by our professional building inspectors. They will do new home inspections on the outside as well as the interior walls and roofing, as well as below the home and all around the perimeter.  To identify any potential issues inside the structure, an examination of the ceilings and floors is performed on the interior. They will next proceed with the examination outdoors, where they will search for any flaws in your driveways, garden sheds, fences, and any other buildings that are located outside.

Extensions and modifications report

Extensions and modifications to existing dwellings can impart additional loads on buildings and impact on neighbour’s properties from fire spread. Local Authority requirements are developed from past history of the area, and research into outcomes using facilities and university trials on effects to urban and rural area structures. Townsville is in the centre of the Cyclone Region and every year in the summer months there is a chance that a large storm can impact the area. Understanding best practice construction is our job and keeping up to date with changers to construction requirements is our focus. All additional structures need to be capable of meeting tie-down requirements, so they don’t become hazards themselves in a storm.
