BUILDING INSPECTIONS

BUILDING INSPECTIONS

As a home seller, you want to sell your property for the highest possible price in the least amount of time. A pre sale report from Leading Building & Pest Inspections is a sound investment with a detailed report, meaning you will have the knowledge and marketing edge over other comparable homes in your neighbourhood.

PRE AUCTION REPORT

PRE AUCTION REPORT

Be aware of any potential issues that may have an impact on a sale before putting the property on the market. Be in a position to carry out any repairs and maintenance that may be required before they become a problem for a sale.

AUCTION REPORTS HALF PRICE

AUCTION REPORTS
HALF PRICE

We know you might be wary of paying for a Pre-Auction Report before you put in the bid, particularly as you may not win. We understand this and so we guarantee that if you don’t win the first auction and need a second inspection for another auction property, it will be half price within a 12 month period.

WARRANTY BUILDING INSPECTION

WARRANTY
BUILDING INSPECTION

It is imperative to schedule your Leading Warranty Building Inspection as a follow-up  after your Building Handover and within the non-structural building defects warranty period.

PRE SETTLEMENT INSPECTION

PRE SETTLEMENT
INSPECTION

The vendor must hand the property over to you in the same condition it was in when you signed the contract of sale. You are entitled to make it a stipulation in the contract of sale that you will carry out a pre-settlement inspection. This can be done at any reasonable time a few days before settlement.

STAGED BUILDING INSPECTIONS

TIMBER PEST INSPECTION

TIMBER PEST INSPECTION

Whether a residential or commercial property, termites can attack virtually any structure containing timber, with 1 in 4  Australian homes being affected by termites. The fact is, termites do more damage to Australian property than fire, storms and earthquakes combined.

DRUG TESTING

DRUG TESTING

Properties contaminated from former meth labs are popping up all across Australia. The chemical residues left behind are toxic and can lead to serious long lasting health effects and even death. Don’t be a victim!

TAX DEPRECIATION SCHEDULE

TAX DEPRECIATION SCHEDULE

As a building gets older and wears out, it depreciates in value. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) allows owners of income producing property to claim this depreciation as a decline in value tax deduction. A tax depreciation schedule is required to maximise the depreciation claims available and to substantiate these claims in a tax return.

STRATA CORP AND AUDITS

STRATA CORP AND AUDITS

If you’re looking at purchasing a home that’s part of a Strata set up, have you thought about getting a Strata corp inspection audit that could affect the overall value?

Matt did a great inspection for the property that we just purchased. He is friendly, professional, reasonably priced... and is more than happy to follow up with any concerns. The report is detailed but not over the top in irrelevant detail.read more
