Why use our pre-purchase property inspection?
Most mortgage providers require a pre-purchase property inspection before they agree to finance a property. This includes a report on the timber structures of a property, which can soon weaken if they’re infiltrated by pests such as termites. Most mortgage providers will require a pre-purchase property inspection that focuses specifically on timber, which should remain exclusive of the bricks and mortar elements of a property.
You may also want to use these types of inspections when you suspect a building’s timber structure is weakening. Or, if you identify the signs of termites or wood beetles in your furniture. Requesting a rapid inspection can prompt you to seek a pest removal service sooner rather than later.

What are the consequences of pests remaining in timber?
The type of damage pests inflict differs according to what they are. For example, although rats don’t consume timber in the same way as termites, they can wreak structural damage by gnawing at joints and weakening the areas the joints support. Termites will directly eat away at timber, which can include everything from wooden floors through to roof joists. Other pests such as ants and beetles produce various effects but can overall weaken the property structure.
How much does pest inspection cost?
Pest inspection costs tend to vary between projects. For an accurate estimate, the person who’s carrying out your timber pest inspection will need to visit your property to determine how much wood they need to assess. An overall building inspection report cost may also vary according to how easy it is to access your property.
