Pre-purchase Inspections

Complete Pre-Purchase Inspection Services

Queensland and New South Wales' premier choice for pre-purchase inspections

Looking for a pre purchase building or pest inspection? JHA Australia is the company you’re looking for. Our building inspectors are among the best inspectors in Queensland and Northern NSW. Just give us a call to schedule your inspection and we will do the rest.

A pre-purchase building inspection is a visual property inspection performed prior to finalising a sale and is usually a condition of your purchase contract. A building inspector identifies any building faults and issues that affect your property and presents you with a detailed condition report so that your decision to buy the property is a fully informed one. The pre-purchase building inspection and report are essential to providing you with peace of mind.
