The inspection of any building before it changes ownership is important for the overall procedure. Without a detailed report, there are several things that can end up becoming a headache later on for the buyer. Imagine having to spend thousands of dollars on repairs after purchasing your new property. If you were told that there weren’t as many defects as there turned out to be, naturally you would be pretty upset but once a certain time period has passed after the exchange, it is no longer any of the vendors problem. Not inspecting the building beforehand can lead to many consequences.
An inspection report on the seller’s side can be transparent and show honestly. For a buyer, knowing what possible defects and faults exist in the property before any contract is signed and exchange takes place can save them thousands of dollars in repair. New floorboards can be covering pest damage, rot and rising damp and new bathroom tiling may not have had the basic foundations, like that of waterproofing, set into it. These are things that the untrained eye would not be able to spot and at those moments, contacting a builder to come inspect the building can be very beneficial.
The building inspections Gisborne has to provide are reliable in their own right. A proper inspection can also be used as a bargaining chip as well. A vendor can only inform you of faults and defects in a building for as much as they are aware of. After a certain time period passes after the exchange takes place, it is no longer their responsibility to cover for damages. However, if these concerns are brought up beforehand than the vendor may be able to make adjustments to keep both parties happy over the course of the whole procedure.
