The importance of pre-purchase inspections
It is vital to get a pre-purchase pest inspections completed before buying any property to ensure what you’re purchasing is free from any future headaches; since major or impending pest issue can be identified during inspections; it helps keep you safe from the hassles and expense of dealing with major problems such as termite infestations.
While standard pre-purchase building inspections do take into account termite damage etc., these inspectors don’t have the training and tools to identify any potential problems as they don’t have pest control expertise. We use advanced Thermal Imaging Cameras that detect areas of moisture or any thermal inconsistencies and make a detailed diagnosis that helps our pest inspectors pinpoint the location of the termite or pest infestation. The experts will inspect and asses all the indoor and outdoor spaces of the property and provide you a detailed report of the areas in which termite or any other pest activity or potential pest activity is found.
It’s important to keep in view that most insurance companies don’t cover termite damage and you would have to bear the financial burden of getting the termite damage fixed in case any is found after you have purchased the property. A detailed and specialised pre-purchase inspection helps you make your property purchase decision with your eyes open. If you choose to purchase the property, it can help you to negotiate a lower price for it. If the problem is too severe, you can decide not to purchase the property at all.
