What's Included in a Pre-Purchase Building & Pest Inspection

David, your licenced inspector for the Brisbane Bayside region, is a trained professional with decades of experience. He will liaise with yourself and the real estate agents to organise a suitable time for the inspection, which you are encouraged to attend. David will then perform a thorough building and pest inspection of the property, looking for the following types of issues: 

Find out what's not included in a build and pest inspection. See examples of damage we have found during building and pest inspections around Brisbane.

The Building Inspection Component

While the property might look great on the surface, it's essential to get a second opinion from a qualified building inspector.

A trained building inspection expert can spot real problems and potential ones that could be expensive to fix. They'll keep an eye out for issues and make sure the seller isn't hiding any damage.

The inspector will come prepared with all of the necessary tools and equipment to check for visible defects. If needed, your inspector can use radar and thermal equipment to look inside walls and hidden spaces.

The Pest Inspection Component

Termites are a common problem affecting homeowners in Queensland. The statistics say that termites impact 1 in every 4 homes during the lifetime of the property.

Our inspectors use advanced technology designed to find evidence of pests without causing physical damage to your property.

Using a mixture of expert knowledge as well as moisture detection, thermal, and radar tools, your inspector can peer into walls, ceilings, and floors without causing any damage to your prospective property.

The Report

Our pre-purchase building and pest reports are prepared in accordance with Australian Standards (AS 4349.1-2007 and AS 4349.3)

If any issues that could potentially compromise the property are found, the report can be used as evidence to either exit your contract or strengthen your negotiating position.

Our reports are written in plain english, contain photos and you can always give your inspector a call to answer any questions you may have.
