Mr Inspector, a qualified building inspector in Melbourne carries out pre-purchase building and pest inspections Melbourne wide.  The above photo depicts what is a minor defect that is required under the Australian Standards for building inspections to be included in all house inspection reports.

Some building inspectors may class this as a major defect due to a leak possible causing further deterioration to the dwelling e.g. the vanity.  Technically it probably is but such as easy fix that we believe this is a minor/maintenance defect.

All taps, traps, plumbing and toilets are checked by Mr Inspector during his house inspections as required by the Australian Standards for pre-purchase building insepctions.
