What is a maintenance inspection?
All new buildings will have minor defects and omissions that are often not noticed by the builder. If left unattended, some issues may have a long term effect on the property.
It is important to remind you that your investment property will normally have a six (6) month maintenance warranty period by the builder (you will need to check the exact period noted in your contract). You may also received a letter advising you that this is the last opportunity you have to get them to rectify any outstanding problems.
Excel Property Consultants conduct thorough maintenance inspections by a professional building inspector checking for any outstanding defects or concerns with the building. This includes:
- Excessive cracking & shrinkage
- Leaks & drainage
- Open joints
- Popping screws
- Silicon work
- General condition of the property
- And any maintenance issues that are the responsibility of the owner
If you would like us to conduct an independent inspection and complete a report on your behalf which will be sent onto the builder for follow up before this warranty period expires we would are ready to help.
The cost of the Maintenance Inspection is $275.00 inc gst.
