Bidding at auction? Make sure you know exactly what you are paying for
It’s easy to get caught up in the thrill of an auction, however, it is extremely important that you organise a Building and Pest Inspection before your dream home goes under the hammer.
What a lot of clients don’t realise, once the Auctioneer brings down their hammer on your final bid, you have no cooling off period. The property you have just purchased is yours and if it has major defects, you could spend a fortune on repairs.
A Pre-Auction Inspection from us will save you the heartache and hassle.
What our team can spot for you during a Pre-Auction Inspection
There are a range of things our experienced team can identify to help you decide whether you should bid or not.
These common defects include:
- All degrees of wall cracking
- Problems with dampness and leaking throughout the home
- Illegal renovations or extensions
- Issues with the foundations
- Roof damage
- Ensuring smoke detectors, safety, and electrical items are in working order
- There are no potential fire hazards
- Guttering is secure
- Outside drainage is fine
- Floors are in good
- Issues with decay
- Problem tree roots
- And much more
We guarantee that if you did not secure the property we inspected at auction, we will conduct another Building & Pest Inspection for you at half price. This offer is only for a property that you wish to purchase within thirty days of the previous Building & Pest Inspection.
