The seller can use this as a really good tool to give you some serious peace of mind especially if it was carried out by a reputable company. If you’re the buyer it can give you some understanding of whether it’s a good buy or whether there’s a few risks. It’s like buying a used car; you would have a mechanic take a look at the car before you make your purchase.
Building and Pest Inspectors know what they’re looking for and where the most common faults will be within the property. It’s also pretty helpful for showing you where you can improve the property and prevent future risks becoming reality! Investing in a Building & Pest Inspection is worth the money and can make a huge difference.
A Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane involves a visual inspection of all accessible areas of the property. Your pest inspector will be looking for active termites, termite damage/decay, wood rot and wood borer activity. Your inspector may also recommend an implementation of a termite barrier around the home if there is not one in place.
It wasn’t a legal requirement of the builder to install termite barriers in Queensland prior to 2001. A Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane will help you find out about any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, movement in the walls (cracking), safety hazards or a faulty roof. A Brisbane Pest Inspection will check your roof void, your sub floor, the interior of your house, outside your home and the outside of your roof. I wouldn’t risk it buy using a cheaper option because the person you choose to do it should be a qualified timber pest inspector and a licensed builder for the building inspection report.
You get what you pay for with that kind of service! When you book a Brisbane Pest Inspection it’s important that the report has your name, the address of your property to be inspected, reason for your inspection, the date of your inspection, the scope of your inspection, a list of any area or item that wasn’t inspected, the reasons why it wasn’t inspected and if necessary, a recommendation for further investigation, a summary of the overall condition of the property, a list of any significant problems that you may need to fix., if necessary, a recommendation that a further inspection or assessment be carried out by a suitably accredited specialist, e.g. a pest inspector, electricity supply authority, water supply authority, structural engineer, geotechnical engineer, surveyor or solicitor.
