Bribie Island is the smallest of the three major sand islands forming the coastline sheltering the northern part of Moreton Bay in Queensland Australia. Most of the island is an uninhabited national park, however, the southern end of the island has been intensively urbanised as part of the Moreton Bay Region. On Bribie Island, there are an array of shopping complexes with grocery stores, retail stores, restaurants and pharmacies. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, there were 16,209 people living on the island in 2006 and since then, there has been significant growth. Bribie Island is well known for its relaxing and coastal lifestyle and is a place many Australians choose to retire. The median age of persons was 55 years, compared with the 37 years for all of Australia.
Whether you’re looking to make the move to Bribie Island, or you’re interested in purchasing an investment property, it is important that before you finalise your purchase that you make sure the property you are investing in is free of safety hazards, major defects or termites. While the property may look like it is in perfect condition from the outside, it is always best to get our comprehensive pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection to carefully check out the property. Without our Building and Pest Inspection, you could be at risk of purchasing a home with defects that could be extremely costly to fix.
Every year almost 180,000 Australian homes are affected by termite damage and as a result, the annual cost of termite damage repairs amounts to over a billion dollars. If there are issues uncovered during your Building and Pest Inspection, you may wish to terminate your Contract of Sale, or you can offer to negotiate the purchase price.
Our detailed building and pest reports provide you with a checklist of maintenance items and trades required for repairs and are useful for renegotiating a price. Our team at Building and Pest Inspection Bribie Island have saved thousands of home buyers from paying full price properties, based on the findings from our reports. When choosing a building and pest inspector, it is important you choose an experienced QBCC registered builder and check their sample report, so you know what to expect. Some of our competitors provide 4-page reports without photos that do not classify defects as major or minor. Buying a property whether it’s your first or your tenth, is a huge financial investment, one you simply cannot cut corners with. Investing in a reputable building and pest inspector will give you peace of mind when moving forward with your purchase.

With over 10 years of experience and knowledge, we will carefully check for moisture problems inside the wall cavities, around doors, windows, ceilings, bathrooms, kitchen and laundry. Finding areas of high moisture will show us areas that will likely cost the most to repair.

Major defects we find generally fall into three main categories:
For pest inspections, our team will do a full visual inspection to Australian standards 4349.3, equipped with the latest Termite Detection Technology.
