What is a Pre-Purchase Building Report?


A pre-purchase building inspection report is the result of an inspection carried out by one of our experienced building inspectors. A report will contain the inspector’s detailed notes and analysis of the building and will highlight any significant defects, as well as the estimated costs of repairing noted defects.


In order to produce a detailed building report, our inspectors will compare buildings of similar structure and age to determine existing or potential building defects. Inspectors from Childs Property Inspections will also access the building internally and externally (including roof void and sub-floor) to ensure that any of the following defects are not present:


  • Timber decay
  • Roof tile damage
  • Termite damage
  • Plumbing defects and leaking (including shower flood test)
  • Dampness
  • Cracks in external or internal walls
  • Sub-floor ventilation and drainage problems


What is a Pre-Purchase Pest Report?

A pre-purchase pest report is designed specifically to discover hidden pests within the premises. Predominantly implemented to uncover termite inhabitation, pest inspections will also identify any other nasties that may be nesting in the building. Inspectors will examine internal rooms, roof void, sub-floor and areas within 50 metres of the building to ensure that there are no signs of pests nearby.


Childs Property Inspections recommends a combined building and pest inspection report. Carried out by both an experienced building inspector and pest inspector, the combined report allows the building inspector to quote on damage repair if the pest inspector discovers termite activity. Other factors that a pest inspector may report on include:


  • Past or present termite activity
  • Significant decay caused by termites
  • Past termite treatments
  • Poor sub-floor ventilation
  • Recommendations for preventing termite activity in the future
  • Other nesting pests within the building, i.e. rats and mice.


Why use Childs Property Inspections for building and pest reports?

We believe that our reports are of superior quality than the competition for a number of reasons:


  • Our clients all receive reports with approximately 20 to 25 pages of detailed information.
  • As well as an extensive analysis, we also provide a summary of defects for quick reference.
  • Reports will include digital photos to support evidence of defects.
  • Childs Property Inspections will quote estimated repair prices.
  • Our reports are not computer generated and are produced manually to provide clients with a more custom and easy to understand report.
  • All of our inspectors work directly for Childs Property Inspections. We are not a broker like many of our competitors.
  • Our inspectors are specialists in their field, i.e. pest inspectors are not also building inspectors and vice versa. This not only means that we offer more expertise, but also means that two inspectors will be examining your building (if you order a combined building and pest report), ensuring that nothing is missed.
