A Better Way for Sale & Purchase
Get maximum value through full disclosure
Many monolithic buildings sell for below their true value or simply don’t sell due to the so-called ‘stigma effect’ of leaky buildings. It is feared a building may have hidden problems, or an inspection has suggested that the cost of repairs are a small fortune. However the true importance is the ACTUAL condition and performance. Leading Pre-Purchase inspectors recommend the Mdu PROBE System is used, going to the heart of the building walls to ascertain its condition and performance.
Looking to sell in the future?
One of the most cost-effective tools to sell your property for the right price is a good history of moisture records and timber samples from the Mdu PROBE System. This will put your prospective purchasers’ mind at ease and prevent misguided pre-purchase inspections from scaring off potential buyers. It will show you have maintained your property correctly, and that you are being up-front and honest. Start building your history today.
In the market to purchase?
Depending on the situation you have a number of options:
- As part of due diligence, require that owners install the Mdu PROBE System to check the condition of the property before settling, or pay for it yourself
- If the current owners do not allow you to carry out invasive (but non-destructive) testing, you can settle with a claw-back clause, and retain funds until the Mdu PROBE System is installed and the results give the all-clear. If there are problems encountered, the vendor is bound by the claw-back clause stipulated in the contract.
