Considering purchasing a shopping centre precinct or commercial property? All Suburbs Building Inspection Reports (ASBIR) is a commercial building inspection specialist, providing you peace of mind. No job is too big for us in South East Queensland.

ASBIR recently undertook a pre-purchase building and pest inspection for a Noosa retail precinct comprising six tenancies.

While no major structural concerns were identified in this case, the inspection did unearth minor issues where repairs and maintenance would be required. This included leaking and rusted roof gutters and roof sheeting, deterioration to paintwork, blockwork cracking and some damage to flooring and countertops.

Furthermore, among the defects were out-of-date fire extinguisher inspections and missing smoke detectors which are critical for a commercial premise.

ASBIR Senior Inspector Fred Broekman said a pre-purchase building inspection was an essential step in the due diligence process, giving you a true snapshot of the extent of repairs or maintenance a property may require. 

“Regardless of whether you’re looking at buying small retail outlets or offices through to large shopping centres, warehouses, office blocks or an apartment building or motel, you should organise a qualified and independent building inspection from a reputable company.

“Before a contract settles it’s worth understanding the true condition of the property. An independent building inspection will identify significant issues and expose problems such as structural cracking, subsidence, leaks or dampness as well as maintenance and timber pest issues,” Fred said.  

“Having this additional knowledge can help in the decision making process or price negotiations. For many potential buyers they need to weigh up if they’re in a position to bear the costs of any future repairs or maintenance,” he said. 

ASBIR’s thorough reporting process means you will receive an individual report for each tenancy in a retail complex, with additional documentation for common or public spaces such as toilets, walkways, courtyards and gardens, if applicable.

ASBIR Client Testimonial: 

Firstly, the professionalism shown by the inspector impressed us both in terms of the manner he conducted himself and the advice in general terms he provided on each aspect of the property.  Secondly that advice was critical in determining what potential for investment the property could provide.  We decided against the purchase in this instance and both feel relieved that we were able to get the best information to make that decision from your company.  We are truly grateful for that and will be recommending your company’s service to friends and family.
