Yep, pre-purchase building inspections ain't worth a pinch of shit!..better off finding a builder mate or mate of a mate to have a look around.A mate of mine bought an older house a few years back. Inspection suggested the deck was in its last throes but good for 3 - 5 years. He attacked the deck the first Christmas and it was like yours, barely holding onto the house. He also discovered some of the better anchor bolts were so high up in the bricks they fractured the brick and were pretty much worthless.
His job went from an expected redo the floor and fix the odd thing found to a full deck with supports.

At least the scooters have not arrived yet, the footpaths will be a battle field when they do.
