Pre Purchase Inspection
Buying a new house can be an exciting time but, more often than not the decision on the purchase is based on location and suitability
As a buyer, you want the peace of mind that the property is in safe working order, as a seller you can instil confidence in your property by supplying proof that the house is not hiding any secrets. With a pre-purchase building inspection, all parties involved with house sale can feel confident in the house sale/purchase procedure.
