Building and Pest Inspection – Unit Complex

I was asked by property investor to undertake a thorough Building and Pest Inspection to a first floor unit in a block of six.

The unit complex was located close to the beach, and a number of defective issues were found during the inspection.

  • Cracked asbestos sheeting to the roof
  • Leaking asbestos gutter
  • Insufficient drainage
  • Wet rot to decking framing timbers
  • Insufficient strength to timber handrails
  • Rusted stairs stringer brackets

This property is more than 30 years old and the defect issues are relevant to the age and close proximity to the water.

Our Building and Pest Inspections usually take 1 to 2 hrs and typically highlight these types of problems.  Our inspection reports form a valuable tool to the prospective buyer in making their decision.
