HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, June 14, 2011 3 Faults to look out for » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Homebuyers have been urged not to drop their guard on home inspections despite a fall in property prices. Archicentre, the building advisory service of the Australian Institute of Architects, said home buyers should take advantage of a drop in property prices but get a professional inspection done. ''Often the decision not to carry out a property inspection can make a major financial and social impact on buyers who in some cases run into serious debt problems with unbudgeted repairs or maintenance,'' said Archicentre ACT and NSW state manager Ian Agnew. Mr Agnew said a professional inspection of the home would assist buyers in determining a property's condition and cost of repairs and give them a bargaining tool. The following list of cover-ups is based on the findings of Archicentre architects conducting pre-purchase housing inspections across Australia. Illegal building -- Undertaken without appropriate permits; Cracking -- Internal walls patched and painted, or new wall paneling installed concealing the cracks, external walls concealed behind plants or trellis; Damp-- Walls painted or furniture placed against damaged walls; Termites, borers, and timber rot -- Floor damage patched and concealed under carpets or panelled flooring; Roof problems -- Rusty metal roofs painted, tile roofs patched with lead. Damaged roof framing propped up in roof space; Rotten weatherboards and windows -- Rot patched with filler or covered with tin and painted; Rotten sub-floor or stumps -- Floors temporarily propped to prevent bouncing; Faulty or illegal plumbing -- Carried out by unregistered persons; Guttering and downpipes -- Rusty guttering patched and painted instead of being replaced.
