Building Inspections Clarinda

If you’re looking to buy a home in Clarinda, it’s recommended that you protect yourself by having the property evaluated by an experienced professional first. Before you sign on the dotted line, speak to the specialists in property inspections of Clarinda homes – Casey Building Inspections. We will examine the property thoroughly to determine whether it’s structurally sound, whether there are any signs of pest infestation or if there are any other issues that might compromise the integrity of the building.

Why Pre-Purchase Inspections Are So Important:

When was the last time you bought a pair of shoes without trying them on, or purchased a car without taking it for a test drive? Nor should you buy a home without a comprehensive property inspection. Pre-purchase inspections put everything out on the table, enabling you as potential buyer to pull out of the sale if the property is unsatisfactory, negotiate a reduced price, or proceed if the property passes evaluation.

Clarinda History

The area was once coastal heathland and first occupied by John O’Shannessy during the early 1840s, who took a squatting licence to encompass a 40,000-acre (160 km2) block, around suburbs known today as Clarinda, Clayton South, Dingley and Heatherton. O’Shannessy later passed on his licence to John and Richard King, in 1846, which saw the transformation of the area.

In May 1905, Brighton Council advised it had received an offer from the Melbourne Metropolitan Board of Works that it was prepared to lay an extension of the Glenhuntly Road water main into Clarinda Road with the view of opening up ‘little populated localities’.

In June 1905, Moorabbin Council called for estimates to form and gravel 20 chains of Clarinda Road from Bunny Road, requesting the owners in the meantime to clear off ‘furze’.

The 6 July 1907 edition of the Brighton Southern Cross newspaper, carried an advertisement from a florist named Curtis seeking an employee to work in Clarinda Road, Bald Hills, Clayton.

The area was originally called Bald Hills but because there were many places of the same name, it was changed to Bayview then later Clarinda,_Victoria
