Example photos are of an Identified Major Defect/ Safety Hazard.
On inspection of this well presented home, the kitchen plaster ceiling cornice had a slight curve. Tests and practical tests to the wall was carried out, pushing on the wall which showed slight flex movement. Moisture tests were carried out for any possible termite activity, no high reading was present. The roof cavity at the outer wall location showed no visible defect. It was strongly recommended the wall load bearing support be checked as the roof main truss support may be compromised. Unfortunately, the owner vendor complained, he considered my findings were incorrect. Additional inspection to the property was required, I advised the owner to remove a section of wall gyprock lining. With investigation, there was no load bearing support post to the wall in place, and the wall area had moderate type past termite damage. If left unattended the main roof truss may have collapsed into the kitchen area. The owner had the defects rectified.
