What is a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection ?
Having a pre-purchase building inspection will allow you to know the condition of your prospective property, including technical problems (with no tearing down of any construction item), and to put a price an anticipated repairs or transformations.
Why should you have your pre-purchase building inspection carried out by an architect?
An architect is a professional expert that can offer you besides technical suggestions an overall assessment of your prospective property.
His or her expertise in city planning will open your eyes to such potential breaches as non conformity to the city’s design and construction standards or necessary building permits to introduce in order to ensure compliance with those standards. Actually, once the property has been perchased, the new owner automatically endorses responsibility for any town planning infraction.
As seasoned architects we can assess any living area or work space and help you see the potential of your prospective property, including possible transformations, extensions, housing additions, and new layout.
All recommended investment expenses can of course be priced.
