Pre-Purchase Building & Timber Pest Inspections

Prospective property buyers should always have both a pre-purchase building inspection and termite inspection conducted prior finalising the purchase of a property.

It is recommended to make this a condition of your contract that you are satisfied with the outcomes of both inspection reports. 

Our pre-purchase inspections allow purchasers to make an informed decision to either proceed with the purchase, renegotiate, or to not proceed with the purchase.

Engaging Inspect My Home to conduct your pre-purchase inspections will provide you with the following advantages over booking with two separate companies

We invite our clients to attend the inspection at which time the inspector will provide you with a verbal assessment of the property at the completion of the inspection.

Pre Purchase Building Inspections

If you are purchasing a residential house or any other property anywhere in Australia it is essential to know the condition of that property.

A pre-purchase building inspection is a visual appraisal of the condition of a property identifying existing defects or areas of concern, however, it is not a warranty against future defects.

This inspection is carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.1

If there are particular parts of the property that you are specifically concerned with, for example, plumbing, electrical or swimming pool etc., you may wish to also engage a specialist in the required field in addition to the pre-purchase building inspection.

Timber Pest Inspection

A timber pest inspection is a visual inspection of the accessible areas of the property to detect evidence of active termites and/or termite damage.

In addition to this, the inspector will also identify conditions conducive to termite attack, whether or not a current termite management system is in place.

This inspection is carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.3
