If you are looking to rent or buy a property, knowing as much as you can about its condition before you buy can save you a lot of money and frustration.
The most effective way to do this is to get a pre-purchase property inspection report (otherwise known as a building inspection).
Whilst a building inspection will identify visual damage which may have been caused by termites, ants or other pests, it does not include the existence of termites or other timber destroying pests.
A pest inspection report will identify whether or not your prospective property is home to termites or other pests.
As termite infestation can be undetectable to the naked eye, a thorough property inspection will provide the peace of mind of knowing there are no unexpected surprises.
Secondly, a pest inspection report identifies whether the property is or has sustained damage caused by termites or other pests.
This is precisely why a pest inspection is worth every cent to the prospective property buyer. Also, the details contained in a pest report can decide whether or not a buyer will purchase a property.
