We will liaise with the current tenants, agents or sellers to arrange for access to the property.
For a relatively small investment of a few hundred dollars, a combined building and pest inspection can give you complete peace of mind that the property you’re buying is structurally sound and free of potentially damaging pests. It can also help you negotiate the sale price if there are costly repairs that need to be done. As a seller, an inspection can also give you confidence that the house you’re selling is of a good condition and you won’t get any surprises when the buyer gets their own inspection done.
The number of inspectors that will be inspecting the house depends on the situation. As a professional inspection team, we will assess the scope and requirements of the inspection to determine the appropriate number of inspectors needed. In some cases, a single inspector may be sufficient to conduct a thorough examination of the property. However, for larger or more complex properties, multiple inspectors may be assigned to ensure a comprehensive inspection. Our priority is to provide accurate and detailed reports, so we will tailor the inspection team size based on the specific needs of each property assessment.
Yes. If your roof void is easily accessible and safe to access then we will inspect it. If the inspector deems that the roof void is unsafe to enter, then they will do all that they can to inspect it. This may involve a visual inspection from the manhole or an exterior roof inspection. The report will clearly outline how the roof void was inspected and if there were any impediments.
Yes. This is important as there is no sub floor for the inspector to assess due to the concrete being on the ground. Termites only need very small gaps in the concrete to gain access to timber structure (e.g. gaps around pipes, electrical cables, through covered weep holes etc).
Yes. Steel framed houses still contain a number of elements which are made of timber such as doors, cabinets, window frames etc which are all prone to termite infestations. Also, the building inspection itself can reveal if there are any structural elements to the house that are unsatisfactory.
On average, a combined building and pest inspection will take between 90 and 120 minutes to complete. This depends largely on the size and type of structure being inspected, any difficulties during the inspection and sometimes if the house is older, this may take longer to inspect.
Yes, We use thermal imaging. This will show up things that are not perceptible to the human eye such as a water leak or a termite infestation.
