So DH and I have found a house we like that we want to put an offer on. I've seen a broker so I know what we can afford and its well within that price. But, we're first home buyers and we have no idea what we're doing. Reading through the contract and the building and pest inspection report there's a couple of things I'm worried about and I'm not sure how to to about it.
The main things that worry me is that the pergola hasn't got building approval and there's evidence of wood rot in parts of the pergola and a tree. The report also recommends a full building and pest inspection once the building is cleared.
Can I put an offer in subject to a full inspection? Or does that get negotiated after our offer gets accepted and put in the contract. See I have no idea!
(I'm in the ACT).
