I am wondering what are some of the things i should be checking for when buying a new house?
At current i plan to arrange a building inspecting for advice on the structure of the house as i plan to get walls knocked out, stumping, white ants, asbestos and electric wiring. I know a builder should be able to assist with most of these and an electrician to see the wiring throughout the house.
What have other buyers done before purchasing? I plan to also get quotes on things before i purchase so i am aware of what the cost to renovate will be. Am i been to 'careful' ?
Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

Drive past the house a couple of times at different times, see if there is much noise around at night or if there are large vehicles parked around the street, what is the traffic like at peak times things that you may not be happy with. Also check to see what development is happening in the area change of zonings are there a lot of knock down & rebuilds, any development applications etc.

I really like this idea. I don't know if it will work, but its surely worth a shot. I suggest you try writing to companies as well. Ex: LG, Samsung, Bosch etc.
