Building Inspection for Investment Property in Bellmere

Is your rental or investment property showing signs of damage? Before you fork out for hefty repairs book an independent building inspection to assess the extent – and cause – of the damage.

Not only will this help you formulate a plan of attack, including which experts to engage for the repairs, but may also identify if you are eligible for an insurance claim depending on the origin of the issue.

One recent example was an investment property at Bellmere. After the tenants noticed cracking and reported it, the property manager sought the owner’s approval for a building inspection by ASBIR.

According to Senior Inspector Fred Broekman, the inspection revealed that the house was showing signs of subsidence which is generally caused by the caving in or sinking of land.

“Subsidence was evident by the way the soffit sheets, soffit moulding and brickwork at the front entry had moved away, or subsided, up to 10mm along the front of house and left side of the garage.

“There were gaps in the brickwork to the front entry, the front entry wall had moved away from the door frame and there were also places in the dining room where the plaster ceiling and cornices had pulled away from the wall,” he said.

All Suburbs and Building Inspection Reports (ASBIR) works closely with real estate agents and property managers on a regular basis to conduct independent building inspections on rental properties as and when required.

“ASBIR is 100% independent, we do not quote or undertake the repair work so we aren’t trying to overstate the damage in order to secure more work,” he said.

In this instance, ASBIR recommended that a licenced structural engineer should be engaged to provide further advice on how to most effectively stabilise the foundations, then any repair work to internal walls, doors and cracked tiles can occur.

Mango Hill Investment Property Pre-Handover Building Inspection

Are you buying an investment property off the plan or through a property marketer? Ensure you book an independent pre-handover building inspection for peace of mind.

All Suburbs Building Inspection Reports (ASBIR) recently conducted an independent building inspection on a newly built investment property in Mango Hill which revealed unsatisfactory paintwork and poor workmanship.

In fact, there were too many internal painting defects to individually dot out across both levels of the two-storey residence indicating extensive issues.

In ASBIR’s report, defective surfaces are noted to the walls, skirtings, window architraves, door architraves, doors and ceilings. Sanding and repainting is required to defective surfaces.

Our inspector also identified the ‘orange peel effect’ throughout the property.

According to ASBIR Senior Inspector, Fred Broekman, “the orange peel effect is caused by incorrect spray gun setup and can occur when the air pressure is too low, the incorrect nozzle has been used, the paint is sprayed at an angle other than perpendicularly, or excessive paint has been applied.”

Fred also suggested it was common for inexperienced investors or new home buyers to overlook the need for an independent building inspection.

“Many builders offer their own quality inspection, while a property marketer may have a long-standing relationship with the builder and vouch for them so don’t fee it necessary to independently assess the work completed.

“But as this report shows, even a reputable builder may be let down by his sub-contractors and if our inspector had not done the inspection, then the quality of the paintwork may slide under the radar causing concerns down the track.

“An independent building inspection is the only way to give you peace of mind,” he said.
