Structural Building Inspection

The purpose of a pre-purchase structural building inspection Perth is to provide advice to a potential buyer or other relevant party interested in the structural condition of a building. We identify any structural, major defect or condition conducive to structural damage that poses a safety risk to occupants. The inspection aligns itself with Appendix A of the Australian Standards 4349.1. Supplying sufficient insight into the state of the construction affirms our client’s confidence and assurance in establishing an educated decision about the property.

The defects identified at the time of inspection will be classified by the following:

  • Structural defects creating an urgent and serious safety hazard being a structural building element or situation that represents a current or immediate potential threat of injury or disease to persons
  • Major defects relating to the structure of the property, being a structural defect which in the opinion of the inspector is of sufficient magnitude that rectification has to be carried out in order to avoid unsafe conditions, loss of utility or further deterioration of the property
  • Conditions conducive to structural damage or deterioration being conditions which, if left unmanaged, are likely to result in the development of major structural damage

We will inspect and report on:

  • The interior & exterior of the building
  • The structural roof construction
  • The sub-floor space where possible
  • The roof exterior
  • Floors
  • Patios and Pergolas
  • Retaining Walls
