Whether you are buying a house or preparing to move your business into new premises, it’s important to know what you are getting into before you sign any paperwork or make a single payment. This type of knowledge and foresight is what we provide at South Eastern Property Inspections. By offering a range of different building inspections, we can spot defects or areas of concern in a building before you buy. You can then use this information to determine if you want to go ahead with the transaction or if you would rather walk away.
Schedule Your Asbestos Inspection in Melbourne
One type of inspection that we offer at South Eastern Property Inspections is the asbestos inspection. Asbestos was used extensively in the Australian construction industry from roughly the end of World War II to 1980. However, asbestos was not banned altogether in Australia until 2003. As a result, the older your home or building is, the more likely it is to have traces of asbestos among its building materials. Estimates point to almost all homes constructed in Victoria before 1976 (98%) contained some form of asbestos when they were built.
If you are preparing to move your family or business into a building that was constructed before 1990, it is wise to have the premises screened for asbestos. At South Eastern Property Inspections, we offer asbestos inspections throughout the Melbourne area. We have been carrying out inspections of this variety for decades, and are even licensed asbestos removalists. If we find traces of this dangerous mineral in your home, we can also devise a safe and speedy way to dispose of it.
Pair Your Asbestos Inspection with a Melbourne Pest Inspection
South Eastern Property Inspections also provides other types of building inspections—such as pest inspections—in Melbourne. To give yourself maximum peace of mind about your home or business building purchase, opt to carry out all these tests. We can offer multiple building inspections at once, giving you cost savings and helping you avoid multiple points of contact.
Pest infestations—particularly early-stage termite infestations—are not always immediately visible to the naked eye. However, pests can do a lot of damage to your home or business in a relatively short period—damage that could cost you a lot of money. By scheduling a pest inspection in Melbourne ahead of your property purchase, you can find out about any infestations or past pest-related damage before you buy. The process is simple and easy—especially if you already have South Eastern Property Inspections coming by for an asbestos inspection—but it can save you a lot of money and headache in the long run.
