A pre purchase building and pest inspection is the most important factor in purchasing a property, so it should never be overlooked by either the buyer or seller of the property. A pre purchase building and pest inspection will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about buying that property, from any major structural issues to if there are any pest problems and how badly they are affecting the property you’re looking at buying.
A pre purchase building and pest inspection is not only important to the buying process, but could also save you thousands of dollars in repairs if there are issues with the property you are about to buy. Before you make an offer on your next property, it’s crucial that you do your research and get your facts straight by getting a pre purchase building and pest inspection completed first.
The pre purchase building and pest inspection not only allows the potential home buyer to check if the property they are looking at purchasing has any defects that need to be addressed, but it also gives them the information they need to ensure they are getting what they think they are getting when they make their decision to buy. It’s important to make sure you have the right information when choosing your new home, so it’s well worth taking the time to arrange a pre purchase building and pest inspection with your real estate agent or one of their agents before buying any property.
Major Defects Noted
We constantly find many major defects during our pre purchase building and pest inspection allowing the buyer to further re negotiate the contract price or to distinguish the contract with many clients not realizing that they are buying into trouble which will cost them a lot of money to rectify.
Our recent building pre purchase inspection identified major defects to the sub floor with sections of the soil having heavy dampness and mould spores throughout which was caused by there being no drainage and due to the contour of the land surface water was entering the sub floor making conditions very desirable for termite infestations.
Termite damage was noted to sections of the rafters in the roof space, the building pest inspection revealed no sign of live termites but once they have been there the likely hood of them returning is very high so we recommended a termite treatment to be conducted by a pest inspector.
I’m always surprised that not many people conduct pre purchase building inspections before signing the contact, they buy a million dollar plus house but neglect the most important part to get a building pest inspection first, the buy the property and then when moving in they realize that they have a problem, calling us at this stage is too late, you would be surprised how many times this happens.
