Pre-Purchase, Pre-Sale Timber Pest Inspection

Pre-Purchase Inspections

Pre-Purchase, Pre-Sale Timber Pest Inspection
A Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection or more accurately a Pre-Purchase Timber Pest inspection is an inspection carried out on a property by potential buyers before purchase. It differs from the

standard Termite Inspection that property owners may have on a property they own, in that it also specifically includes other timber pests including borers, wood decay fungi and mould. The costs in treating for these pests, rectifying conducive termite conditions, and repairing damage can then be considered in negotiations on the property.

A Pre-Purchase Inspection is only a small investment to make, which can save you from potentially losing thousands of dollars and at worst case; from buying a lemon!

Here in Queensland, around South Brisbane, Gold Coast and Northern Rivers, we live in a high hazard area with 1 in every 3 homes being affected by termite attack throughout their lifetime. We advise that you don’t listen to others and make sure you get a Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspection done before the contract of sale goes unconditional on a new purchase of property. Early detection can prevent unnecessary heartache, stress and financial strain on you and your family.

Our qualified technicians have a number of years’ experience in the field and can provide a thorough Timber Pest Inspection. We use quality detection tools such as a sounding device, Termatrac (movement detector), Moisture Meter, Infra Red Camera and Head Torch on the job. The Timber Pest Inspection also includes checking in roof voids and underneath subfloors, if access is available.

You’d be amazed at what we see on the job! Unfortunately, some homeowners hide or remove evidence for a quick sale. We work for you, as the buyer and have your best interests at heart. We go above and beyond to not only look for what is there but also what isn’t there. We also encourage you to attend on the day of inspection.

We know you are waiting on tenterhooks for this to be the home of your dreams! Therefore, your digital report with images, written to the Australian Standard, is sent out within 24 hours of job completion. After you receive your Timber Pest Report, we will follow up with a phone call to discuss the information provided.

We highly recommend that two sets of eyes are better on the job than one. That is why LessPest More Control prides itself on maintaining quality relationships with trusted Building Inspectors from South Brisbane, Gold Coast and Northern Rivers. We work side by side, within our own specialist field to provide you with the best outcome and ongoing services possible. We will liaise and organise the inspection date and time on your behalf, taking the stress out of the buy.
