It’s recommended that you have a pest pre-purchase inspection carried out prior to making a formal offer (or, if the property is going for auction, before the scheduled date) or during the cooling off period provided after you exchange contracts. In Queensland, buyers are given a five business day cooling off period and a nominal fee for cancelling the contract. If you are planning to have a pest inspection carried out during this time, it’s best to plan ahead and book one in sooner rather than later.
Unless you’re a fully qualified builder, it’s likely you will miss any hidden defects with the structural integrity of the building. The vendor is obligated by law to disclose certain problems with the property to the agent and to potential buyers, however this should not be relied on solely as it only relates to issues that the vendor is aware of at the time.
All buildings must adhere to the Building Code of Australia and relevant Australian Standards, and an independent pre-purchase building inspection will review a wide range of accessible structural and operational elements of the property, including:
issues (which can often be hidden with a new application of paint), drainage problems, safety and fire hazards, structural weaknesses, cracks and other defects.
Pre-purchase pest inspections can make the difference between you buying a property that’s well looked after, with appropriate pest prevention measures in place, or one that’s riddled with creepy crawlies, and is suffering from major pest damage. Pests such as termites can be almost impossible to detect without specialist equipment and years of experience, so if you think you’ll be able to tell if a building has pests from just a cursory examination, think again.
The pest inspector will look at:
Once we have completed our pre-purchase inspection, we can provide you with a summary of our findings, either in person or over the phone. We will then send you our written reports, no later than 24 hours after the inspections. Our reports are highly recommended by property and banking experts, as we ensure our findings and recommendations are written in plain English, with no complex industry terminology or verbiage.
We are the number one choice for pest inspections on the Tweed Coast & Gold Coast, and our reputation in the market for high quality workmanship and dependability is second to none.
