Some important points to consider when booking a building & pest inspection in Coffs Harbour.
Don’t buy a property with wrong advice from amateur inspectors. Inspect provide a two-man team. One who is a licensed builder with 30 Years experience. The other who is a timber pest specialist who has had years of experience treating and protecting houses against termites, not just course completed.
Laws in NSW do not require licensed builders to be able to do pre-purchase inspections but complete a 3-day course, Having our builder ensures you receive adequate advice on critical structural and safety elements. If the inspector is not licensed or experienced he will recommend you seek further advice from a builder rendering your inspection useless.
New laws require inspectors to carry and be trained in the use of additional non-invasive tools such as Thermal and Termite Radar. Our inspectors carry these tools and do not charge extra.
We understand that building and pest inspection reports need to be sent out quickly. Our inspectors will complete the reports after every inspection on site, Ensuring you receive same day building and pest inspection reports. In addition, we will follow up and ensure you understand everything about the building and we have answered any questions you may have.
Pre-Sale Inspections or Pre-Purchase Inspections
Pre-Purchase Inspections Coffs Harbour
A Pre-purchase building and pest inspection is an inspection for a purchaser on a property prior to sale or a condition prior to purchase.
Two inspectors work on the purchaser’s behalf to ensure that the property is what they expect it is to be before they purchase it and any risks are pointed out.
The pest inspection covers timber pest activity, the risk of timber pest activity and conducive conditions that may attract timber pests. Termites are a major cost to homeowners annually and Coffs Harbour is located in a high-risk zone. Termites must be taken seriously. A timber pest inspection is important as some pests such as termites, timber decay and borer can seriously affect a structure and cost a homeowner thousands in repair if not identified.
The building inspection is carried out by a licensed builder. The building inspection will mainly cover structural adequacy, workmanship, and safety. The builder can carry out additional services that may include estimations, consultation and test materials such as asbestos. Inspectors who are not licensed builders do not have experience in building houses and will recommend you seek further advice from a builder, Thus having a builder inspect the property the first time makes sense.
