So Why Invest In a Pre-Purchase Home Buyers Inspection?
There are a number of reasons to invest in a pre-purchase home survey, one of them being house buyers do not want to buy someone else’s problems, so PEACE OF MIND is a top priority when making one of the most important investments of your life.
For example, A Drains Test may highlight problems such as blocked pipes and leakages in the pipes. Also, a Drains test may find the cause of any offending smells and source the cause of any ‘cracks’ in the building or leaking drains which could lead to subsidence.
A Chimney Survey can reveal any cracking or damage to the flues, which could have been caused by past chimney fires. One of the most dangerous risks associated with chimney problems is Carbon Monoxide poisoning, so this test can be invaluable!
Furthermore, remember new houses are not exempt from drain problems. Independent Drain Testing retrieved 51 drain rods from a newly built house. The house buyers stated that the drains had been blocking up consistently from the day it was purchased!

What Our Customers Say
Dan saved us over €5000 + more!
Dan inspected 2 houses for us, we were ready to buy. However, in both cases, he found issues with the pipework. Underground leaks we would never have discovered until it was too late and damage had been done to the foundations and structure of the house. He saved us over €5000 immediately and a lot more in the long run! I would recommend a drain test for everybody buying a house, it is critical information. Dan did a fantastic job explaining exactly what the issues were, his reports were easy to understand & ready the very next day! 5 STAR SERVICE.

Avoid Subsidence ... a great reason to get a Pre-Purchase Survey!
One of the main causes of subsidence in structures is water escaping from leaking drains or other water services. If water is escaping undetected from defective drains, it can cause significant damage to structures, as seen here. Investing in a pre-purchase house survey ensures you are aware of these kinds of issues and helps you avoid buying someone else’s problem!
