When purchasing a house it is good to bear in mind that building standards change over time. For example glazing in older houses may not necessarily comply with current glass safety standards AS1288. Although the windows and doors may function effectively, in the interest of safety, it is beneficial if they comply with the current standard. Ensuring you engage a knowledgeable inspector will assist you to make an informed decision regarding a house you are intending to purchase. Please contact us if we can be of assistance in this regard.
