When buying a property, you would like to think that the previous owner has contracted an electrician to provide a full electrical safety inspection before selling. However, this is not always the case. We know that building and pest inspections are mandatory, but these rarely cover electrical safety and plumbing. Pre-purchase electrical inspections are typically carried out right before purchasing properties to identify any possible danger in electrical appliances or wiring.
To be safe, you should ensure that your purchasing contract says “subject to building, pest and other inspections” so that if there is a problem, you have legal grounds for the phrase ‘other inspections’. Nearly 20% of all homes purchased across Melbourne have some form of electrical wiring issue. Therefore, is it worth taking the risk by not hiring a pre-purchase electrician when you are about to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a new property?
As with any form of inspection, a pre-purchase electrical inspection must be carried out by a highly experienced and licensed electrician. Not only this, an electrical inspection must also come complete with an electrical safety certificate from the inspector. A detailed pre-purchase inspection of a properties electrical system involves many factors including:
Once the electrical system inspection is carried out, the electrician will provide homeowners with a comprehensive and detailed report on the inspection. The inspection report will include recommendations for any rectification on electrical problems, hazards and required upgrades to ensure safety and convenience of homes.
