This may include dangerous materials, such as asbestos, potentially unsafe balustrades and any cracks in the wall. Cracks can easily be filled in and painted over, but may be a sign of a more serious problem.

The main building on the property you purchase is not the only area that should undergo inspection. Other buildings, such as sheds or freestanding garages, should also form part of the overall inspection process.

The local state regulations often have rules regarding the placement of certain structures. The purchase of a property that does not conform to regulations may require that you break down a structure and place it in a position allowed by the authorities.

Choosing not to undergo prepurchase property inspection could cost you a lot of money. There are several dangerous elements that may exist on the property that are not visible to the naked eye.
