What does a Strata Inspection Include?

The strata report may cover many areas including:

  • History of the building
  • Pending building works
  • Special levies payable
  • Budget
  • Recent repairs undertaken
  • Any known building defects
  • Monies in the bank to cover repairs and maintenance
  • SSM Act compliance issues, these include general information on insurances, by laws, any disputes or areas under investigation and harmony

Why is a Strata Inspection Important?

When purchasing a strata managed property it is vital to have a strata inspection conducted in order to be informed on the history of the property and if there were any previous issues with the property. It is also important to ensure the property has money in the strata budget as there have been cases where a property was purchased and issues arose although there was no money left in the strata budget to pay for any of the repairs!

Effective Building & Consultancy recommend that both a building inspection and pest inspection be carried out with a Strata inspection as there are many defects which may exist within the building which may not be known by the strata manager or body corporate. Please note that the strata inspector will not physically go to the building he is reporting on.
