Property inspections Melbourne provides a chance for you to see the current condition of your property in a visual way and discuss with the inspection team whether you have certain concerns or if you still have questions or even you have issues with certain aspects of the property itself. When you are buying a new house, the biggest issue that we face is the ability to see into the future of the house. We know that the house will be of value for many years to come but it’s nice to have a glimpse into the current condition. Property Inspections Melbourne offers you the opportunity to go on site to have a look at what is going on inside and out and also get some good advice from the property inspector about the state of the house. The inspectors in Melbourne use some pretty special equipment to provide you with a visual examination of the area that they are inspecting, some equipment which can be seen online.
One of the most important factors that property inspections Melbourne need to focus on is the foundation. The inspectors have a couple of options available to them, these include performing a surface survey or a subsidence survey. Both types of inspections are designed to identify the problems with the foundation of the building so they can plan on how to resolve it. If the problem is very severe then the foundation may need to be replaced and the whole project stopped. Foundation problems can be detected by looking out for cracks in the walls and flooring, evidence of water damage such as puddles underneath, evidence of condensation on window panes and doors and other issues such as missing brickwork. Sometimes bricks will bend in the wind and this will show up as gaps in the wall.
Other problems which property inspections Melbourne need to look at include the electrical systems of the house, any leaks and issues with the plumbing including taps, toilets and sinks. They will also call us to assess if there are any problems with the gas, electricity, insulation and water systems in the house. All of these are factors which will impact your heating and cooling bills and will need to be properly maintained.

The majority of our professional property inspections Melbourne inspections are carried out throughout the year, depending on where the building is located. If the building is located within Melbourne city then we will carry out all of the work during the colder months of the year, often in the winter months of September or October. If the property is located outside of Melbourne city then we will carry out all of the work throughout the year. If the property is located within the state capital, then it is unlikely that the property inspections would be carried out throughout the year as state laws do not require it.
Most of our professional property inspections Melbourne take place during the building period, which occurs throughout the year. Generally, it is during the building period that most defects are found. During the pre-purchase survey and tender process most defects will not be detected as most builders make sure that there are no hidden damages or problems with the structure prior to the approval of the building permit for the project. This is the reason why the pre-purchase survey and tender process is conducted, to prevent the discovery of any problems before the completion of the project. The pre-purchase survey and tender process is also conducted to ensure that the best practices of construction are being followed and any possible issues will be detected and resolved prior to going through the building phases of a project.
