A rating system is a great way to get a snapshot of a property or compare several properties. As a leader in building and pre-purchase inspections, IPI developed a new rating system based on the Australian Standards. By matching the Standards we developed a checklist and software to guide the inspector and generate consistent reports which can be delivered same day.
With each Independent Property Inspection Report you will receive the rating on the condition of the property. In a typical 3-bedroom home, the rating is based on the inspection of 350 items, and 1296 possible defects. This increases in larger properties.
The check covers all structural components of the house including walls, floors, ceiling, roof, foundation and framing. We then check everything above, underneath and around the house including all the dark and dusty corners. Our system ensures that no latch, cupboard, hinge, tap or door remains untested.
Each item is weighted by importance to contribute to the overall score. The result is that aside from the thorough and detailed report you also get a simple rating to summarise the state of your home. As a seller, the rating demonstrates the depth of the building inspection, minimising the chance of the buyer insisting on another test and delaying the sale.
