A Pre-Purchase Building & Pest Inspection is simply an inspection carried out before you buy a property. The property is usually owned by a third party and the report will identify any significant building defects or timber pest issues. We'll also compare the property inspected with buildings of similar age and construction and give you an overall rating for the dwelling.

Tewantin Pest Control & Building Inspections immediately identify any serious building faults or termite issues and provide a formal report within 24 hours. Any issues need to be identified before you take ownership so you don’t get hit with expensive repair bills down the track. A Pre-Purchase Inspection is a tiny percentage of the purchase price but provides peace of mind and excellent insurance value by any standard.

A Pre-Purchase Building & Pest Report is extremely valuable when you're negotiating the purchase of your property, making a bid on a property or applying for a bank loan. Most importantly, it will help you buy your new home with confidence. When you're signing on the dotted line you'll know exactly what you are buying as our report will provide you with written proof of the property’s condition to compliment your proof of legal title.

We encourage you, the buyer, to attend your Building & Pest Inspection so we can explain to you first hand any abnormalities or issues we may find. The more informed you are when purchasing your property, for example; regarding any repairs that may need to be undertaken, the easier it will be for you to negotiate the sale.



What is the difference between a Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection and a Termite Inspection?

A Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection, or more accurately a Timber Pest Inspection, is carried out before the purchase of a property by the buyer. We will assess the property for termites as well as borer activity, wood decay, fungus and mould. 

A Standard Termite Inspection is carried out by property owners as part of their normal property maintenance routine. Normally these inspections are carried out on an annual basis, but sometimes more frequently on properties with a higher risk of termite attack. The inspection is focused solely on termites, however if we spot wood decay or borer issues, we will let you know!
