Miss GK of Darwin purchased this property through private sale; the property had been vacant for six months for renovations. IPI was contracted to carryout a standard Pre-Purchase inspection as a condition of the contract.
The IPI inspector found many poorly fitting doors, most door catches had been moved, plaster cracking over doorways, uneven and springy floors throughout. These signs are red flags for a competent inspector and inspection of the underfloor space revealed most supporting piers had subsided and two had fallen over. A large channel had been cut through the earth due to a burst old galvanized water pipe and gone unnoticed due to the property being vacant.
Cost of repairs $4,460 was negotiated back off the contract.
Cost of the Pre-Purchase Inspection only $250.
