Mr & Mrs DG wanted to sell there home but were worried about the wall cracking in the back bedroom. IPI was called in to inspect and found the problem was rusted out guttering just outside this corner had leaked and caused the foundations to settle at a different rate to the rest of the house causing some subsidence cracking.
Recommended repairs to the foundations, the framework was jacked back up to its original position, the gutters replaced, and Mr & Mrs DG achieved well over there reserve price at auction due to disclosing the original IPI report and subsequent repair invoices to all the bidders.
Cost of IPI report $360 plus Cost of Repairs $2,500 = Many Thousands over there reserve price, Mr & Mrs DG retired to Queensland to be close to their grand children.
