A commercial or residential property purchase is a significant investment decision and rarely taken without considering the pros and cons. First and foremost, you need to check that the structure is solid and safe. You also need to ensure that no legal issues exist in the property title.
While carrying out all these checks, many people tend to overlook getting a pre-purchase pest inspection. It plays a vital role in purchasing an expensive property. It is essential to hire the services of reputed professionals like the ones at Knockdown Pest Control to certify that the structure is not damaged and free of the existence of any pests at the time of purchase.
Our qualified pest inspectors provide pre-purchase inspection reports that enable you to make an informed decision while purchasing property in Sydney. The reports are prepared promptly so you are able to make your purchase decision within the property’s cooling-off period.
What Is A Pre-Purchase Inspection?
The standard building inspection process starts with a complete visual inspection followed by thorough checks on every feature and fixture on the property and its outdoor areas. In addition, pest control inspection is an essential aspect of the comprehensive building inspection too.
The pest inspection covers the assessment of active as well as deactivated termite, pest activity within and around the property and the potential for recurrence of pests on the property, in the future
Why a pre-purchase inspection is Important
A pre-purchase pest inspection is a crucial aspect of the property purchase process as it keeps you free of hassles in the future once you occupy the property. This inspection reveals the existence of any pest problems such as termites’ infestation that can pose a major headache later on, if it remains unnoticed for a long time.
Trained pest control professionals have the tools and expertise to identify potential problems correctly. Pre-purchase building inspectors may detect termite damage but lack the expertise of pest control experts.
A reputed pest control company uses advanced thermal imaging cameras to spot and analyse moisture-ridden areas or thermal inconsistencies in all the indoor and outdoor spaces on your property. They provide a complete report of the termite infestation and other pest activity, if any.
Other Benefits of a Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection
You need to know that termite damage is not covered by insurance companies, and any liability on that count after the purchase of the property is borne by you alone. A customised and detailed pre-purchase pest inspection keeps you alerted to the condition and potential problems while buying the property. Armed with this information, you may decide not to go ahead with the purchase of a property with potential pest problems, even at a discounted price.
