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
