Building pest inspection is done to check for evidence of timber pest evidence, activity and defects within the Australian Standards. During inspection, the inspector will examine the property, this will include where applicable and access is possible, the sub floor, roof void and exterior, house interior and exterior and any other building elements, and then produce a building/timber pest inspection report.
When buying a property, property inspections are an essential part of the process. It offers helpful insights as to the condition of the structure. It will also help you decide whether you’re going to purchase the property at market value or not. It is typically advised by your solicitor or conveyancer that you ask for property inspection reports, like pest inspection report or building inspection report, so you can learn as much as you can about the property’s condition.
Usually, the reports generated identify possible structural, drainage, roof, plumbing, and pest damages (among other things) which you need to know prior to purchasing the property. Depending on the extent of the damage, these issues may prove to be a costly problem that you don’t want to take on. Be that as it may, it also gives you room to negotiate a cheaper price for the property.
What Will Be Inspected?
Inspectors will review parts of the property and they will be looking for flaws that may have compromised the structural integrity of the building. They will be checking the interiors, exteriors, the area within the 30m radius of the property, sub-floor space, and roofing, among other things.
For the interior, the inspectors will check out the ceilings, walls, floors, windows, doors and door frames, kitchen, toilet and bath, laundry, and stairs. For the exterior, they will check the walls, chimneys, timber and/or steel frames and structures, stairs, verandas, decks, balustrades, balconies, patios, and the like.
Areas within the 30m radius of the property like car park or garage, garden sheds, paths, driveways, fencing, surface water drainage, and more will also be looked into. If there’s sub-floor space, they will check for any damage that might compromise the structure of the property. For the roof, its space and exteriors will be subject to evaluation as well. Their findings will be reflected in the building and pest report.
