If you are buying a home in Perth Western Australia, having pre-purchase building inspections completed by an experienced Registered Builder is essential to understanding the condition of the home you are buying including prior and current Timber Pest (Termite) damage and activity.
But what about the 150 + items of Electrical, Plumbing and Gas fixtures and fittings that form part of the Good Working Order Warranty that also need checking?
Are you going to do these checks yourself with a hairdryer or phone charger?
Are you going to do these checks a few days before settlement with limited time to make any repairs if you find issues?
What items are you going to check and how?
Over 150 items to check
Did you know there can be over 150 items to check in an average 4-bedroom 2-bathroom home in Perth?
For example, electrical checks will include light points, power points, appliances, and air conditioning. While Plumbing and Gas checks will inspect that wastes are free-flowing, drains and taps for leaks and function tests on gas appliances like hot plates, gas points and barbeques.
Both our Good Working Order and Pre-Settlement reports comply with Australian Standard 4349.0 Inspection of Buildings and satisfies the widely used REIWA Good Working Order Warranty Annexure requested by most buyers.
All our inspectors are WA Registered Builders, are experienced in building inspections and carry full Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurance cover.
Time to make repairs
Completing a Good Working Order inspection at the beginning of the purchasing process will allow the seller more time to complete any necessary repairs highlighted in the report well before settlement.
Good Working Order Report
In conjunction with my team, I have created an inspection that takes the hassle out of completing these checks yourself.
The Good Working Order inspection report is a comprehensive non-technical check of the Electrical, Plumbing and Gas fixtures and fittings and records any issues found in detail.
The report can be given to the seller, so they know what items need to be fixed prior to the pre-settlement inspection.
This will make your pre-settlement inspection a breeze as the seller will have had an opportunity to rectify issues highlighted in the report.
Giving you more time to figure out what wall to mount your flat screen tv or mediate your kids on which rooms they are getting.
“It was simple to book and communication between all parties was smooth. The report we received was very detailed and thorough and was followed up with a phone call from Jeremy who did the inspection. The written report was received that afternoon. Jeremy identified quite a few defects including a structural issue and electrical faults. I would definitely recommend Home Integrity and would use them again in the future.” Sarah, Duncraig
