When you begin searching for a new home, paperwork and inspections may not be first on your to-do list. However, they are vitally important because a house that looks good may still hide problems.

Organising inspections and carrying out searches before you buy will reveal a house’s history and any defects, which could save you money in the long term.

Find out who you need to contact to organise a pre-purchase or termite inspection, or do an Insurance Search to determine whether the house has QBCC Home Warranty Insurance.
