Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane South

Brisbane South population is growing strongly with approximately 30,000 (12%) new residents increasing the population from 247,000 to 277,000. The top 5 fastest growing suburbs account for more than half of this growth: Mount Gravatt East, Robertson, Rochedale, Eight Mile Plains and Calamvale. Sunnybank Hills is the most populated suburb with 18,085 residents, followed by Calamvale 17,124 and Eight Mile Plains 15,322. Brisbane South real estate is in strong demand due to the short commute to Brisbane City and easy day trip access to Gold Coast beaches along the Pacific Motorway M1.

If you’re thinking of purchasing a home in Brisbane South, it is important that you check for any safety hazards, major defects or termites before you buy. While the property may look like it is in great condition, 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. 

Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspections Brisbane South

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, it gives you the option to evaluate what you want to do moving forward. For some, the defects may simply be too large and it is from there that they wish to terminate the contract of sale or negotiate the purchase price.

Affordable Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane South

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 South have saved thousands of home buyers from paying full price for properties based on the findings in our report. When choosing a building and pest inspector, we recommend choosing an experienced QBCC registered builder and checking 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 large financial investment, one you must take all precautions with. 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 South 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. Our team here at Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane South 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. Finding areas with high moisture is important as it is the root cause of more than 80% of money spent maintaining properties relates to moisture problems. This includes termite damage repairs because termites 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. 

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.
