If you want complete peace of mind before you make the decision to buy your home in Melbourne, then we recommend a combined building and pest inspection. This is especially true as building defects can lead to pest infestations.
Remember that it only takes 2mm for common timber pests (such as termites) to gain access to a home and start causing damage. This damage that is unlikely to be covered by your home insurance if the property was infested by pests prior to purchase.
Some of the many suburbs of Melbourne that are prone to termites include Weribee, Mernda, Hoppers Crossing, Craigieburn, Pakenham, Williamstown, Port Melbourne, Frankston, and Cranbourne.
