Hi, new poster, long-time lurker... Have been looking at our first PPOR in Queensland. Older place, cheap, Queenslander-style (not too high off the ground). Built back in the day of asbestos, lead paint, uranium and whatever else they used to make houses! We're interested in it as a PPOR for probably two years and then maybe as a rental but we're unsure how far to push the pre-offer inspections. We know the shed out the back is asbestos roof (which I know is mostly safe but wife, young child so down it goes). Agent was vague, couldn't get a clear "no" on whether more asbestos in the house. What we really want to do is send an asbestos inspector who can provide a quote. If that's not insane then we go to looking at everything else - the electrical wiring (which I suspect could be a full replace), plumbing under the house and testing the paint for lead (and also the soil which clearly has had paint flaking into it for decades). It's currently rented and has been on the market for a while (with a previous under contract that dropped out because couldn't get financing according to the agent (which could be b.s.)) so I think they'd put up with us sending multiple people around there. If all that went well then we'd go for the pest inspection. Anyone else done this? Is there some way to roll all these inspections into one? Are we just being very nitpicky wanting a million and one inspections before we think about an offer? Edit - should add we know about building inspections but want to use an electrician, asbestos remover and so on so we can obtain quotes as we go.
