Purchasing a home or other property is one of the biggest investments most people ever make, so it is very important that you know exactly what you are buying.
A Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection will identify areas under timber pest attack and conditions conducive to timber pest attack, meaning you can make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with the purchase.
A Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection is a thorough inspection of all timber inside and outside of a home or building being purchased. It is normally completed within a certain time period (commonly 7-14 days) and should be completed before a contract becomes unconditional.
A Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection identifies timber pests that are present in a structure or surrounding grounds (inside fence line or up to 30m from the building).
An inspection will assess the following:
Evidence of timber pests
Severity of damage caused by timber pests
Susceptibility of building to infestation by timber pests
Remedial and protective measures required (including a quote for any recommended treatment)
Further investigations required
