Pre Purchase Plumbing Inspections

Buy your next property in confidence, knowing it’s not going to financially drain you with plumbing problems


Buying a house has been made harder than it used to be, with the royal commission into banks, and the recent election, people were holding back. Now all that’s out the way it’s time to get back to business.


Buying a house is a big deal, a lot of money is going to be spent, and the last thing you want is to buy a house with problems. I am guessing a building and pest inspection will be carried out, as you want to make sure your potential purchase is free from termites and safe to live in.

What a lot of people do not realise, is that plumbing issues can cause major problems that will leave you financially drained. That is why we have come up with a pre purchase plumbing inspection / condition report. As we are in the insurance industry all too often we are attending jobs, testing the bathrooms etc and finding major problems such as failed waterproofing, or broken sewer pipes. Unfortunately, most insurance companies won’t cover failed waterproofing, or pay for drainage repairs. This is leaving many customers devastated, Imagine the feeling, after you’ve moved into your new home to be told you need to spend $10k on a bathroom strip out, or $2k to repair a damaged drain under the driveway!!!


Our inspections on the Gold Coast are very thorough, checking plumbing problems from the water meter, to the hot water heater and everything in between. We will carry out a pressure test, check if your property if an investment can be issued a water efficiency certificate, inspecting stormwater and plumbing drainage for broken pipes or tree roots with our cctv drain camera, testing gas installations, gas hot water systems and cookers, pipe identification and much more.
