What Is A Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection?

Your licensed Maitland and Lake Macquarie pest controller Glenn is a seasoned professional boasting substantial expertise of over 35 years in the pest control industry. We will serve as your intermediary with the real estate agent to coordinate a suitable schedule for the pre-purchase pest inspection.

We strongly encourage your active participation in this process, as it affords you the opportunity to have the inspector show their discoveries in person on the day of the inspection.

Timber Termite Damage

Older Homes or ones built with a lot of timber frames and predominantly wood are obviously more prone to termites and pests that bore into wood. The damage caused can be significant and cause structural damage that can be dangerous if left untreated. We will inspect all the wood and timber in any property thoroughly as part of our report.

Comprehensive Reporting

ASPC will perform a comprehensive visual assessment of the property, both its interior and exterior, which encompasses the roof space/roof void, roof exterior, sub-floor space (when accessible), garage, carport, sheds, fencing, and pathways. Our objective is to identify potential issues, including but not limited to:

  • Search for indications of termite presence or termite-related damage
  • Find visible structural flaws, spanning from major to minor defects
  • Note any structural damage that may compromise the property's structural integrity
  • Locate signs of defects or damage that could potentially lead to future complications
  • Detect all signs of moisture, which might signify a leak or termite activity

It's important to note that we won’t be able to assess areas that are inaccessible or fall outside of our area of expertise, such as electrical wiring, plumbing, or the functionality of appliances. For a comprehensive understanding of what is and isn't covered in a building and pest inspection, please just give us a call.

Pre-Purchase Pest Report

Following the inspection, you will receive your Pest Report, inclusive of a detailed account of the property and the inspector's findings and recommendations for pest or termite treatment or prevention (like a termite barrier). We are not building inspectors with limited knowledge of pests, but expert termite and timber specialists who create accredited and licensed reports for potential property buyers.

We strive to provide swift report turnaround times and are more than willing to review the results with you should you have any inquiries.

Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection Cost

ASPC will provide a full pre-purchase pest inspection starting at just $550 (+GST) for a single-story building. Considering what this might save you in the long run, it’s a no-brainer.

When should I have a pre-purchase pest inspection?

Every time you are seriously considering buying property.

You should always have a pest inspection before buying a house considering what it may save you in the long run

How long does a pre-purchase pest inspection take?

The inspection itself will be largely based on the size of the property but also how accessible critical areas are (like lofts or basements etc). Usually, only a couple of hours is all that is required and we usually provide the report a few days after

Can I be present during the inspection?

Yes, absolutely. In fact, we encourage it. It gives us a chance to show you exactly what we find, making the report easier to understand. It’s optional though, you are not required to be present
