Property Due Diligence

Make sure that the property you want to buy doesn’t have any unpleasant surprises that could either cost you money or just make life unpleasant in your new home.

Our detailed property due diligence service can provide you with a full picture of the property you want to buy, including …

  • Neighbourhood crime stats/info

Council & Zoning

  • Zoning restrictions
  • Easements
  • Encumbrances

Property Price

We spend all day every day buying property for people, so we have plenty of insight into what a property is worth and how much you’ll likely need to spend to purchase it.

What You Receive

As we work through our due diligence process on your intended property, we will make note of anything that may be of concern to you. No two properties are the same, so it requires some dynamic thinking and investigation based on your specific needs and the property you are looking to buy.

Report

Once we’ve finished, we’ll give you a verbal run down on the property, then email you a list of all the potential issues we’ve uncovered.

Recommendation

During the verbal run down, we’ll also give you our recommendation on whether we believe the property is going to work for you. If there are potential hidden costs with the property, we can discuss how you might use these as bargaining tools to pay less for it.

Interstate Purchasers

If you’re interstate, we’ll also provide walkthrough videos of the house. These are definitely not the sorts of videos that the selling agent would put up to promote the property. Instead, they show the less desirable aspects of the property including things like the hot water service, cracks in the paint, doors hanging crooked, the noisy neighbours next door and anything else that the seller might prefer you to not know about.

Fee

The property Due Diligence service takes between 1 – 4 days from commencement to completion. The fee is $1320. The service can be bundled with our Negotiation service and our Follow Through service at a package price.
