Building Ideology strongly recommends you obtain a pre-purchase or pre-leasing report prior to buying or renting a new home, commercial space or piece of land. Assessing the property for potential health hazards is just as important as having a structural inspection. When buying a property, the seller is under no legal obligation whatsoever to disclose to you anything about the state of the building. Purchasing or renting a new property is a major, long term decision and this knowledge may save you from potential health issues.
A pre-purchase/ pre-leasing inspection will evaluate the following:
- Indoor Air Quality
- Building Materials
- Measuring of EMF
- Potential for Mould growth
- Drinking water quality
- External sources of potential health hazards
(See a sample inspection report here).
