Building and pest inspections, Why do I need one?
If you are buying a property,
Combined building and pest inspections are most commonly carried out by the purchaser of a property to identify any building, safety and pest issues that may devalue the property.
Banks and financial institutions in some instances want to ensure that the property has no unknown defects, thus the money they are lending is a low risk investment and safeguarding the investor.
Building and pest inspections include an assessment of potential timber pest issues such as termites, borer, timber decay, mould and any other conditions that may attract timber pests. The building inspection should be undertaken by a licensed builder to identify any structural defects and safety issues. Inspections should also include the use of equipment that can detect termites in concealed areas such as the Termatrac T3i
Structural defects or Pests in a building if unidentified can cost the purchaser a lot of money to rectify. These can include structural movement, cracking, damage concealed behind walls caused by termites and safety such as un inadequately supported verandahs and so forth.
