Buying a home close to the ocean - pre-purchase structural building inspection by a Perth engineer

Updated: Nov 18, 2021

Buying a home or an investment property close to water can bring an excellent return on investment. However, the enticing prospect of being close to the ocean also requires close scrutiny of an existing home or real-estate asset to ensure that there are no unidentified major structural defects.

During recent pre-purchase and structural engineering inspections along Perth’s coastal and riverside suburbs, we have assisted with advice to address major structural defects often related to corrosion in reinforcement or structural steel elements.

If you are planning on buying or selling a home in Perth, our team can assist with a range of structural engineering services from structural inspections to retrospective engineering approval or structural engineering certification for renovations, additions or extensions.

For a quick turnaround with structural inspections and other related services, contact the team at Rotaru Building Consultants Perth today or visit our website for more information.
