Why Sydney homebuyers need independent property inspection reports

Property inspection reports are essential for Sydney buyers who want to ensure they get exactly what they are paying for.

Property inspection

In the bustling Sydney real estate market, making smart home-buying decisions is a top priority. 

No matter how excited you are to find your dream home, before you sign a purchasing contract, you need to know what problems may be lurking behind the beautiful facade and stylish interiors. This is why an independent property report is essential. 

Why request an independent property inspection report?


Here are the top reasons why an independent pre-purchase building inspection report is necessary for Sydney home buyers:


  1. You don’t know what you can’t see: An experienced property inspector knows what to look for to identify leaks and structural issues that might not be visible to the untrained eye. Before you commit to a mortgage, you need a property inspection to make sure you don’t end up having to pay a large amount for repairs. 

    This simple step can save you thousands of dollars.

  2. Vendor reports may be limited: Some real estate agents take the initiative and encourage their clients to have an inspection report ready to share, which is a good thing. However, the vendor’s report might contain limited information. In addition, you can’t be certain that the report you receive has been commissioned by a licensed builder. 
  3. A point of contact: Having an independent report means you can be 100 per cent confident that every detail is shared by the building inspector, and you will have the opportunity to ask follow-up questions. 
  4. Attend the inspection: If you are serious about securing a quality property, you are welcome to attend a property inspection in person. This will give you the chance to ask questions and learn along the way, and be satisfied that the inspector has looked at the inside and outside of the house to check for structural issues, pests, leaks and that old enemy of Sydney homes; rising damp.

FYI: BeSafe Property Inspections can schedule inspections on Saturdays, giving you more flexibility in your week. 


How to book a property inspection

Houses in Sydney remain in demand and most vendors have offers very quickly after listing their home online. This pushes buyers to be decisive after only seeing the home once or twice. It’s a big risk because there may be compliance and structural issues. 

If you want to make a purchase, it can be tricky to find the time between making an offer and signing a contract so you beat the competition, especially if there is no cooling off period. This is why we are happy to accommodate your property inspection requests at short notice. Wherever possible, we can arrange to visit a property and conduct a thorough, professional inspection within 48 hours or even less. 

When you book your inspection, we will get in touch with the selling agent to arrange access to the property. You will receive a completed report by the next business day.
