What is a Pre Purchase Timber Pest Inspection?

If you’re in the process of buying a home, a pre purchase timber pest inspection will be vital. Termite damage is generally hidden deep within the floors and walls of a home and can be easy to miss for an average buyer. A pre purchase timber inspection is carried on the property a buyer may be interested in purchasing. Unlike a standard pest inspection, pre purchase inspections looks for a range of pests that can affect the quality of a home. These inspections should look for borers, wood decay, fungi, mould and termites. While it can be easy to get swept up in the excitement of purchasing your first home, a pre purchase timber pest inspection could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. The cost of treating these pests can also be used to your advantage and help in the negotiation process.

Pre Purchase Timber Pest Inspection

Choosing the Right Inspector

While many building inspectors claim to have the skills to carry out both a building and pre purchase timber pest inspection these are two completely different areas. While it may be cheaper to hire one person to do both inspections, the results and quality of the pest inspection can be compromised. As a result, it is strongly advised that you seek a pest inspection specialist. Secondly, it is not recommended that you use your real estates recommendations. This is because real estates are acting as a seller, rather than looking out for you. As a result, sometimes the pest inspectors they chose will not provide as much detail as a good pest inspector. Furthermore, when you are looking for a good pre purchase pest inspector, you shouldn’t always make your decision based on price. Instead you should look at online reviews or ask friends and family.
