Sometimes referred to as a 'standard property report', a building report is a written account of the condition of a property. It will tell you about any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, movement in the walls (cracking), safety hazards or a faulty roof to name a few.
The building report is completed to Australian Standard 4349.1-2007 by a licensed, experienced and insured Building Inspection Consultant. The consultant completes a visual inspection of accessible areas of the structure and given an assessment in matters such as stability, watertightness and standard of workmanship consistent with age and design. This multi-point inspection is then followed by a comprehensive written report as per the Australian Standard highlighting all findings, concerns and recommendations.
You can access this pre-purchase report and a range of others through the InfoTrack system.
