Building and pest inspections can help in protecting property buyers against investing in fault-ridden properties that can turn an investment into a financial burden. Reports that come from these inspections will inform you of any hidden problems the property may have before purchase.
Building inspections involve carefully assessing the entirety of your property for any seen or unseen damages, structural problems, harmful pests, and health and safety hazards. These issues require thorough, professional inspections because they are not often obvious from the outside. A house can appear pristine upon your first visit, yet have significant, unseen problems throughout, including:
- Unfinished work
- Weather or water damage
- Faulty construction
- Aspects of the property that don’t meet the Australian Building Standards
Pest inspections detect any pest damage as well as existing signs of pests in your home. This is an important step in the process of buying a house as certain pests, such as termites, can cause detrimental damage to your property. Pests like rats and cockroaches can carry germs and harmful bacteria – not to mention make a mess in your home. Detecting these pests early on can prevent further damage and costs in the future and keep your home clean and safe in the long run.
Building and Pest Inspections
Building and pest inspections should be done prior to finalising any form of agreement with a seller. This is a crucial step in the home buying process, a house can turn from a great investment to a financial burden very quickly if an inspection is not undertaken prior to purchase.
