PrePurchase Building Inspection-Norwood

Have read the report Don. Well laid out and straight-forward to navigate and understand.

Reflects our conversations this morning. A worthwhile investment in our peace of mind considering this will probably be the last major investment we make (short of urns 🙂

Hi Don,

 

Thank you for the comprehensive inspection and report, and for being able to complete it so quickly.  It has given us some points to think about.

Annual Termite Inspections. Don’t begrudge the cost.

Annual termite inspections should be a compulsory part of your home maintenance regime. Don’t begrudge the cost. Be warned – failing to do this could be extremely costly in the long run as many a home owner has found.
