Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection

 
A pest and building inspection with Vision Building Reports can help ensure your new or investment property is pest free!

One of the most structurally and financially damaging issues that can be fall a building is the infiltration of timber pests such as termites, wood rot and wood borer. These infiltrations may be a direct result of either external or internal entries, and are all the more dangerous because they are often well concealed within the building.
 
 
 
 
 

Pre-sale Inspection

 
If you are a vendor looking to sell a property, you should provide pre-sale building and pest reports for potential purchasers. This ensures you are made aware of any significant structural damage or pest infestations that are likely to affect the contract of sale. You can then choose to repair these issues before selling the property or inform buyers beforehand, so the asking price can be adjusted.

There are many benefits to pre-sale inspections:

  • Gives the owner the chance to fix potential issues
  • Increases the likelihood of unconditional offers from buyers
  • Increases the likelihood of offers made at auction
  • Minimises the chance of renegotiations after the contract has been signed
  • Allows vendor to increase the asking price
 
 
 
 
 

Handover Inspection

 
Before completing the handover of a new build, contact Vision Building Reports and have our team conduct a practical completion and handover inspection for you. These inspections are conducted to Australian Standards and tolerances as established by the Building Commission in 2007. They are designed to identify areas that have not been built to Australian standards.

 
 
 
 
 

Asbestos Testing

 
Buying a new house or renovating? At Vision Building Reports, we provide thorough asbestos testing to ensure the property is safe. Even a small exposure to asbestos can cause respiratory issues, so having the property tested for asbestos is the best way to ensure you and your family will have peace of mind. Our testing methods are detailed, effective and in compliance with current Australian standards.
 
 
 
 
 

Landlord Inspection

 
Vision Building Reports will work with property managers to ensure prompt, thorough and affordable reporting on the condition of rental properties across the region. This allows landlords to make necessary repairs and maintain the property to standards outlined in the Rental Tenancies Act.

Remember:
  • Landlords are not covered by insurance if their property has not been maintained to safe standards.
  • Landlords are responsible for organising inspections of structural defects & potential hazards.
  • Landlords are liable for deaths & injuries caused by lack of property maintenance & repairs.
 
 
 
 
 

Aerial Drone Inspection

 
With our state-of-the-art drone, we can inspect a property from above before you buy. Forget about ladders, our team will pilot the drone to inspect the rooftop and make sure there isn’t any:

  • Cracked tiles
  • Damaged solar panels
  • Rust
  • Defective gutters
  • Corrosion
  • Holes
  • Incorrect fitment between pitching
  • Loose screws
  • And more

Our aerial drone inspection can also be used to identify any pest or bird issues.
 
 
 
 
 

Methamphetamine Testing

 
Home buyers often request pre-purchase methamphetamine checks to ensure their property hasn’t been used to produce the drug before purchase. That’s because meth contamination is invisible and odourless but can seep into soft furnishings and cause nausea, headaches, irritability, respiratory problems and trouble sleeping.

In fact, it’s estimated roughly 60% of clandestine meth labs are in rental properties. If meth contamination is above 0.5 micrograms per 100cm², decontamination is mandatory under Australian Law. As a vendor or landlord, this responsibility is yours. Talk to the team at Vision Building Reports and we can provide prompt and affordable inspections.
 
 
 
 
 

The Process

 
The team at Vision Building Reports will assess your property and assign a rating based on the expected conditions of buildings of a similar size, type and age. This provides an accurate estimation of the state of your property and gives you an idea of required repairs, maintenance and associated risks if those issues are left untreated. The report will give insights on roofing, walls, doors, windows, guttering, cabinets, plumbing and much more.

Your finished report will offer a realistic estimation of the value of your property and allow you to decide which major or minor defects (if any) you want to tackle first.
