If you’re thinking of purchasing a home in Brisbane North, or in the surrounding suburbs, before purchase you must check for any safety hazards, major defects or termites. While the property may look like it is in perfect condition ready for you or a tenant to move into, it may not be. This is why it is imperative you 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 leave you out of pocket. 

Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspections in Brisbane North

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 major issues uncovered during your Building and Pest Inspection, you may wish to terminate the sale, or offer to negotiate the price of the property.

Our detailed building and pest reports provide you with a checklist of maintenance items and trades required for repairs and can be useful for negotiations. Our team at Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane North have saved thousands of home buyers from paying full price for properties based on the findings in our building and pest report. 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. Regardless of whether you are a first home buyer or an avid property investor, you simply should never cut corners when it comes to purchasing a house. Investing in a reputable building and pest inspector gives you peace of mind

We promise to take all due care and represent your interests. That’s why so many property professionals choose and recommend our services including Buyer’s Agents, Mortgage Brokers and Conveyancers. Our team at Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane North undertake building inspections in accordance to Australian standards 4349.1 and beyond. All our builders are experienced and fully insured and will provide you not only with a detailed report, but a phone call after the inspection to discuss findings and offer you important advice about your home. Our team here at Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane North inspect all accessible areas of both the interior and exterior of the property. These will include the bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, wet areas, yard, masonry walls, subfloor, roof void and roof exteriors plus electrical and plumbing checks that we can do by law. 

With over 10 years of experience, knowledge and state-of-the-art tools, we will carefully check for moisture problems inside the wall cavities, around doors, windows, ceilings, bathrooms, kitchen and laundry. This will give us insight into if there is any damage related to moisture or termites, who are attracted to moist timber. 

Major defects we find generally fall into three main categories:

  1. structural defects such as subsidence evidenced by significant cracking or movement to walls, uneven floors or stumps; or
  2. high moisture in wall cavities due to leaks, which we locate using a moisture meter; or
  3. live termites, or termite damage to a range of timbers, including flooring, structural and decorative timbers. 

For pest inspections, our team will do a full visual inspection to Australian standards 4349.3, equipped with the latest Termite Detection Technology. After we have done a comprehensive inspection of the building, we will then benchmark the defects found at the property you’re looking to purchase with other properties that are similar. 

We understand the cooling period for contracts of property sale in Queensland is only 7 days, which is why we will perform the building and pest inspection within a 7-day time period and you will receive a comprehensive report within 24 hours, presented in an easy to read format, with detailed images of your house.
