It is quite often forgotten that it is just as important to have a pre purchase pest inspection as it is to have a pre purchase building inspection. In many suburbs of Melbourne, where there is a greater chance of termite infestation.
That's why if you are planning to buy in one of these Melbourne suburbs it is very important to get a pre purchase pest inspection undertaken. This is because a pre purchase pest inspection will let you know if your potential new home has a pest infestation.
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.
It is not commonly known that you only need 2mm for common timber pests (such as termites) to gain access to a property and start causing damage.
It is also not commonly known that your home insurance is unlikely to cover the cost of repairing your home if you discover after purchase that you are infested with termites.
It therefore pays to get a pre purchase pest inspection that reports on all types of pests including termites, borers and fungal decay - before you make the decision to buy.
Within 24 hours (or even soon if required) you will receive a detailed report with photos outlining any issues with the property.
We will conduct thorough, but not invasive pre purchase pest inspection using the latest equipment.
