Pre-Purchase / Pre-Sale Property Inspection Reports


A Merit Pre-Purchase building inspection is an investment in your peace of mind. Buying a home is one of the most important and exciting decisions you make… One of your main priorities is to check whether there are any hidden problems.



Investing in a Merit Property Inspection before you market your home, can identify problems which may otherwise jeopardise any Offers. Providing an impartial Inspection Report also saves potential buyers time and money - especially helpful if you’re selling your house by Auction.

Merit builders can also provide a Property Inspection Report if you’re not selling, but want to know if there are issues that need to be addressed.
