Pre purchase inspection

Our pre purchase inspection is designed for prospective home owners and potential buyers.  
 

We provide a non intrusive inspection of the properties plumbing and heating system, which includes checking the central heating system to ensure it's working efficiently by using state of the art thermal imaging technology and laboratory style water testing.

We also check the bathroom (s) and kitchen to ensure there are no areas that could cause issue with the structure or that you're inheriting a potential problem that hasn't been picked up on a standard building survey.

 

You can use the results of the inspection to negotiate a better price for the property if we're to detect a serious issue, or use the results to ensure you're aware of any work that's required to bring the property up to standard.
 

why get a Pre purchase inspection?

If you're looking at buying a property, whether it's the home you live in or a rental, you should know what's going on with the plumbing and heating system.

Apart from the exception of building an extension or renovating, a homes plumbing is the most expensive area of the house to alter, repair or replace.  A bathroom done by a professional can typically cost between £5-10k on a budget and the average boiler replacement costs £2000 depending on the boiler you have. 

A pre purchase inspection can tell you whether or not you're going to have any problem with your new homes bathroom, plumbing system or central heating system, including the state of your boiler.

 

We use state of the art thermal imaging to see how efficient your central heating system is and a laboratory style technique to test the quality of the water in the central heating.  With this we can test the amount on inhibitor in the system, lime scale and magnetite.  This shows how well the system has previously been looked after, how likely there is of the chance that the boiler will break down and also the likelihood of a burst pipe or radiator within the central heating.

 

We also visually inspect the rest of the properties plumbing, including the hot water cylinder and tanks if there are ones, the tell tale signs of damp issues or water damage within a bathroom and any areas which could cause you problems in the future.

 

Our plumbing report will give you answers to worries that you'd never get from a plumber or building surveyor.  We give 100% unbiased, professional opinions to any issues we may find and provide you with the information you need to rectify it.
