Jim’s Building Inspections in Kalamunda – Check Before You Buy
Kalamunda was once part of a thriving logging region, and once a townsite was approved in 1902 It quickly became established as a tourism location.
Even now, orchards and the production of apples and other stoned fruits are a major part of life in Kalamunda, and this is reflected in the properties constructed in the area.
Jim’s Building Inspections in Kalamunda are here to help you make the best decision when it comes to purchasing a property. In Australia, it is not compulsory for a pre-purchase inspection to take place when you are buying a house, but the responsibility of buying a house without defects lies with the purchaser. We know that 1 in 3 houses sold in Australia have significant defects – so making a purchasing decision without an inspection could not only cost you potentially thousands to rectify, it could also prove damaging to the health of you and your family.
A building inspector will check for defects, hidden or otherwise, and provide a thorough and detailed report including photographs so you can understand the nature of the property you are interested in. Taking the emotive decision to buy and offering factual evidence to support your decision – whether it means you do not buy, or just use the information to negotiate a better price.
Asbestos Inspections – Why are they Important?
Around a third of all homes built in Australia contain asbestos – unsurprising, really, when more than 3,000 products, from gutters and drains to flue pipes, had been made using this group of minerals.
Asbestos is made up of microscopic fibres. These fibres are used to strengthen concrete, create insulation and in so many other ways, but the use of asbestos in construction was banned in 1989 when it was discovered that the fibres could become airborne. Breathing in asbestos can cause health problems from breathing issues due to thickening of the pleural lining to asbestosis that makes your lings harden and shrink. Asbestos inhalation is linked to lung cancers called mesothelioma, too – so the presence of asbestos in your property is a hazard. Any renovations or maintenance work that is done in a property containing asbestos can release the fibres into the air, compromising the health of your family. The cost to remediate a property containing asbestos can be substantial, so knowing about it before you buy is imperative.
If you are concerned about the presence of asbestos in your Kalamunda property, then Jim’s Building Inspections Kalamunda can give you peace of mind.
