Buying a home in Melbourne?
You need a pre-purchase timber pest inspection

With termite damage not covered by most home insurance and 1 in 5 homes in Melbourne being damaged by termites, a timber pest inspection makes sense and will give you the confidence that you are choosing the ‘right’ one to buy.

Buying a home nowadays in Melbourne requires such a huge investment, and sometimes new buyers get bad news as they move into to a new home. Termite damage is usually hidden deep under floors and inside walls and the average buyer would not see it- before they purchase the building.

If you engage us to provide you with an inspection prior to purchase, we will give (just) you the information you should have if you are to make a wise decision. Our inspector will be a licenced and accredited timber pest inspector- not a building inspector without experience or licence for pest work. The report to you will be clear and simple, with minimum of verbiage, but with embedded photos. You (and only you) will also have a one-to-one verbal report direct from the inspector and not from the agent.

History tells us that our clients understand and trust our reports. This gives them the confidence to make that big decision- or perhaps, to leave that one and cool down. Wait for a better one.

At Specialist Termite Control, we deal exclusively with termites and timber pests. It’s what we do! So- trust us and our reports. Let us inspect your prospective purchase and report to you- before you commit yourself.

What is a pre-purchase timber pest inspection?

A pre-purchase timber pest inspection or “pest inspection” on a property of interest for a homebuyer, is more than just a termite inspection. As the name of the inspection suggests, we are not only looking for termites but we are looking for other timber pests (such as borers and wood decay fungi).

These pre-purchase pest inspections are vital for home buyers (and should not be skipped). Not only do they pick up current activity but will flag potential issues that need to be fixed to prevent future problems, such as drainage, ventilation and construction issues, all of which could make the property susceptible to termite attack.

This is important information for homeowners to make sure they don’t make an expensive mistake and can use the information to negotiate on price if they decide to proceed.
