Pre-purchase Advice

Not a Building inspection!

A building inspection and pest inspection will only advise on building issues: They don't give advice on developing the property, such as;

  • Zoning issues
    Such as heritage, conservation, bushfire, landslip, subdivision, dual-occupancy, protected areas, tree protection
  • Council development controls
    Building set-backs, heights & envelopes, landscaped areas, open space restrictions, special clauses
  • Complying development code
    How to gain approval under the new complying development controls
  • Site specific issues
    Privacy issues, solar access, potential for overshadowing, vehicular access, tree removal, potential or loss of views

What about the neighbours?

We can also give you a 'heads up' on the what your neighbours are allowed to do and how it might affect you in the future.
