When you’re buying or selling a property, it’s important to get a combined building and pest inspection. This will ensure that both the structure of the building and any pests present are identified and dealt with before you finalize the sale.
A combined inspection is also a good way to identify any potential problems early on, so you can budget for repairs if necessary. It’s always better to know about these things before you buy or sell a property, rather than after the fact!
