Frequently Asked Questions
We are sorry but – you do. You see Termites and other such species only need a 2mm gap to squeeze through and contaminate your property. These gaps could be through damaged mortar or cracked bricks; eaves or ventilation areas and even drainpipes. By skipping this test for the sake of a couple of hundred dollars, the possible undetected infestation could cost you thousands instead.
You will be interested to learn that it is not as expensive as you might think. For as little as $250 we can undertake a full Timber Pest Inspection whilst a full Building Inspection starts at $540
Obviously the sooner the better. If you are about to make an offer on a property to purchase, it would be ideal if you can arrange the inspections before submitting your offer. If not, then make your offer “subject to” satisfactory inspection results – your legal advisers will be able to help you on the exact wording.
We will arrange access to the premises with the agent or vendor and you are most welcome to attend. However we would like to point out that our Inspector has to undertake a very detailed analysis and in depth reporting procedure and it is often in everyone’s interests if any discussions are left until this process has been completed. Should you not attend, don’t worry as we only have your interests at heart.
This is something you should discuss further with your legal advisers as there will be several options available to you. These might include re-negotiating the purchase price, asking the vendor to put right any defects or even withdrawing from he purchase all together.
Of course we can. We can provide a next day service in most areas of Geelong and then telephone you with our outline findings as soon as the inspections are completed. We would follow this up with the full written report within 24 hours.
You can pay either with Visa or Mastercard or direct through PayPal. You can even pay our Inspector on the day of the inspections.
