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.
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.
