Our inspectors find that the properties that are tidy and free of clutter the best to inspect. Stored or unwanted items in rooms become obstructions that slow the inspection process and may bring the report into question if there are too many. So de-clutter and remove any unwanted items. This will also assist with photography.

The same goes for the building’s exterior. Stored items or excessive vegetation abutting the building are not only obstructions but also be conducive conditions that can lead to timber pest attack.

Energy rating software differs for new and old homes. New homes are rated out of 10 Stars, whilst old homes (including new homes that have been occupied) are rated out of 6 Stars. Legislation in the ACT requires all homes that are being sold to be assessed using FirstRate 4 software. So if your star rating is not as high as expected this could be the reason.
