Do you really need building and pest inspection?
In short, both reports will give you the best overview of your property. A building inspection report may identify visual damage caused by termites, however, it doesn’t include where termites and other timber destroying pests are within your home. Only a pest inspection can tell you exactly how bad the damage could be. A termite inspection will look in detail if there is any area of the property that is at major risk from termite attack, if there is evidence of active termites or pre-existing termite damage, and if a termite management system has been used within the home. A report that includes both building and pest inspections, is the best way to learn as much as you can about the condition of the property before you purchase it, and to help you avoid problems and further costs down the track.
You should always organise pre-purchase building and pest inspection to be completed before you finalise the purchase of your new home. To organise a complete service call Adelaide Building & Property Inspections today on 0412 391 663.
