Things to point out when ordering a building & pest inspection Byron Bay
➜ NSW laws, unlike Queensland, unfortunately, do not require the building inspector to be a licensed builder. Some training organisations provide a 3-day course to allow people to do a pre-purchase building inspection course. By engaging our services you can have confidence knowing our building inspector has had over 30 years experience in the building game and is a licensed builder.
➜ If your agent has recommended an inspector, Think again. The building and pest inspection industry are competitive. Unfortunately, it has been identified that some inspectors will work in the agents best interest to ensure a quick sale and not identify issues in return for repeat work or referrals. This is against the law and should be reported to fair trading if you know about it. Ensure that when you engage an inspector you do it independently.
➜ Like a building inspection, A pest inspection is very important. With termites affecting up to 1 in 4 houses throughout Byron Shire, Termites are a real threat. Our timber pest inspector has done more than a week course in obtaining a timber pest license.
