Don’t buy problems

You commit hundreds of thousands of dollars when you purchase a house or apartment. It should be a dream come true. Who needs the nightmare of moving in and only then discovering serious structural problems?

Your best protection is to get our comprehensive and completely independent property inspection report.

Get a property inspection report and avoid expensive mistakes

Linkfor Property Inspections are your truly independent building inspectors.

Linkfor Property Inspections gives you peace of mind by providing a comprehensive, professional property inspection report. Thorough examination of the house or apartment, and any other buildings on the property, is carried out by an accredited builder and designer.

Why do I need a pre-purchase inspection?

A professional property inspection identifies defects and also provides recommendations for remedial work.

Examples of typical major defects in a home are:

  • Poor drainage that affects foundations and timber framing
  • Leaks in roofs, poor flashings, sub standard framing and undersize beams and timbers
  • Dangerous structures and safety hazards of poorly constructed buildings.
  • Cracks and subsidence of masonry walls
  • Dangerous wiring
  • Leaky plumbing
  • Sub-standard fittings and fixtures

Better to be informed about potential problems before you commit to the purchase.

Why should I choose Linkfor to inspect my property?

Checking the roof cavity during a property inspection

Choosing an inspector is a question of value for money. We endeavour to offer excellent service, good communication and a detailed report with careful explanations.

We work for you, not the agent or property owner, and keep only your interests in mind.

A thorough report is likely to be of far more value to you than the relatively small fee you pay. A comprehensive, independent property report may save you thousands off the asking price, or alert you to potential costs of repairs and maintenance.

How much will it cost?

A pre-purchase inspection for an average 3-bedroom house in the Hobart area, with digital photos, a comprehensive summary and room by room details, will typically cost $480 including GST. The report is typically around 14 to 18 A4 pages. It is sent by email and can be printed out as a Word document.

Smaller properties involving minimal travel may be cheaper, while some large properties can mean a slight increase in cost relative to the property size and location.

It would have cost us thousands of dollars to get the house back to a liveable standard. Thanks Ian and staff.”
