Property Investor

Do you know why they’re really selling?

When buying an investment property you want to be sure you are getting one that doesn’t end up costing more than it’s worth.

It’s therefore essential to get an independent inspection done so you can

  • Know whether they are trying to sell you a problem property,
  • Reduce the chances of tenants making claims against you for an unsafe or non-compliant property, and
  • Negotiate a better price on the basis of any issues we identify

We specialise in both residential and commercial property inspections, and in most cases the cost of your inspection can be claimed as a tax deduction (but check with your accountant first).

Residential Investment Inspections

You buy an investment property to make money, not to have your cash flow eaten away by repairs and property management.

It all starts with knowing what you are buying by getting a thorough inspection done.

The types of things we look for;

  • Unapproved structures like bedrooms or studios that have been converted from a garage
  • Inconsistent stair heights, both inside and out
  • Low height balustrades or decks without balustrades
  • Termites
  • Faulty or inadequate smoke alarms
  • Leaking Showers
  • Other significant defects and maintenance issues

Why knowing is important

  • Your insurer is unlikely to pay out on damage to any unapproved structures
  • As the landlord you are responsible for providing a safe and compliant environment for your tenants
  • Your public liability insurance might be invalid if your building hasn’t met current building standards, exposing you to the risk of a tenant claiming against you directly
  • You can save a fortune by using the issues identified to negotiate a cheaper purchase price
Choosing the right type of inspection

Your investment property inspection starts with three options;
