Important Information about Building & Pest Inspections
➜ Unfortunately, the laws in NSW do not require a licensed builder to carry out pre-purchase inspections. In fact, there are 3-day courses allowing people to become building inspectors! This is worrying for purchasers as the advice given on structural and building elements may not be accurate or the inspector may recommend further advice costing the purchaser more money. Rest assured we provide a licensed builder with over 30 years experience. Lic Builder NSW #104150C.
➜ If your agent has recommended an inspector, Think again or double check. The building and pest inspection industry is 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 and make sure The Building Inspector is a Licensed Builder.
➜ Also, Having a two-man team that includes a licensed builder and also a timber pest specialist working together ensures that the builder looks after the building side and the pest inspector looks after the pest side. There are single operators (one inspector) who carry out both building and pest inspections and this is also worrying as the inspector may come from a building background and may not have a good understanding of termite ecology, behavior and or ever treated termites. One person trying to carry out both a building and pest inspection is a huge task and maybe rushed potentially missing vital parts. Our pest inspector is an expert with 15 years experience inspecting, treating and protecting houses against termites Lic Pest Technician NSW #15102227.
➜ Our state of the art business management software allows our inspectors to generate and email you a full photographic report within 3 Hours of the inspection, Guaranteed. This allows a speedy process reducing the risk of being gazumped and missing out on the sale by waiting for reports that in some instances can take days! We will also call you directly after the inspection to run through everything to ensure you are 100%.
