Pre-Purchase Inspection


Pre-Purchase Building and Property Inspections

Buying a property? EP Group Ltd will carry out a thorough inspection of your property and provide you with a fair and honest comprehensive written report, complete with photographs of any problem areas to give you assurance that the home you are buying is of the quality you expect.

We have a speedy turnaround from inspection to report. The report will be emailed to you directly by close of business the following working day. If you’d like to have a conversation with the inspector after the inspection then that is easily arranged.

The report we produce is fully comprehensive, ‘to the point’ and in plain, easy to understand terms; it’s not a tick box report, it is relevant to the home being inspected.

Our thorough inspection usually takes between one and a half, and two hours on site. However, we allow a maximum two hours for our standard pre purchase inspections. You are very welcome to be present at the inspection and we also offer the inspector’s contact details should you wish to discuss any of the contents of the report/findings.

Thermal Imaging

We also offer Thermal Imaging to our Standard Pre-Purchase Inspection if requested as an additional service. Please see our payment options and enquire to see if this would be recommended for your inspection.

Prompt Payment Discount

We offer a prompt payment discount for same day payment for our pre purchase inspections.

Payments can be arranged easily via direct credit or cheque – please note we do not accept credit card payment.

Leaky Buildings

We have been involved with ‘leaky buildings’ for a number of years and are fully aware of all the issues and indicative signs. We have the latest moisture detection equipment, enabling us to gauge the moisture content of the framing and establish the performance of the cladding
