why get a building inspection report?
The under floor access door was locked when the purchaser viewed this property.
IPI was engaged to inspect the property (cost $300.00) and a second visit to the property was necessary before access was gained to the under floor space. It is not hard to see the excessive amount of water present and the un-stable pier. The floor above this area was very springy.
Extensive agricultural drainage was needed across the back of this building with connection to local council stormwater. Removal and replacement of paths was necessary to install drainage. The pier had to be completely replaced and the floor repacked to correct the springy floor.
The total cost for repair was $18,500
