Here at Lets Take A Look we offer a follow up report if you do go ahead with your purchase from the Pre-Purchase inspection on your chosen property.
A maintenance report gives you a list of items needing both immediate maintenance and ongoing regular maintenance on the dwelling. With time frames and details of what needs to be done.
Dwellings need and require an ongoing maintenance plan to ensure corrosion,decay and ageing are prevented. A well-maintained house will be an asset and hold its $ value and appeal into the future. Commercial Properties require Sinking Fund assessments that clearly set out items to be considered and completed at intervals to ensure the property is in a quality safe condition and which advises the Body Corporate members of what is important to be included in consideration to hold the property’s value. The same principals and information detailed/ compiled for your home can help you to plan and spread the cost of repairs and maintenance across a number of years.
Early intervention can prevent structural damage and greatly increased repair costs. Roofing maintenance is vital to protect the structure beneath and stay intact in Cyclone conditions. Maintenance is ongoing and starts with washing the surface on a regular basis to remove contaminates and prevents build up of chemicals that can allow corrosion to get a foot hold.
New additions such as timber decks which can take considerable investment need regular ongoing care to keep them looking good but also to prevent Termite attack in areas now concealed from view.
Maintenance and regular inspection access is vital for longevity.
