Key Points of a Termite Inspection

When you’re buying a home, pre-purchase building and pest inspections are a must. Often buyers will skip the pest inspection - often proving to be a very costly mistake.

In Australia, CSIRO estimates that 1 in 5 homes will be attacked by termites. Left untreated, the damage to the home can be significant and extensive and structurally compromised. This in turn can seriously affect the value of the home - especially if termites have been able to infiltrate more than one location in the home. In the worst cases, they can completely destroy a home.

When buying your dream home, the last thing a new homeowner wants is be unaware that termites are eating away at your investment.

When you are looking to buy a home, it’s important to know the termite status and history for the property:

  • Are there any active termites in the house or on the property?

  • Has there been any damage in the past?

  • Is there an up-to-date treatment on the property?

  • Are there any conditions that may make the home more likely to suffer a termite attack?

To get this detailed information you need a thorough inspection carried out by a termite specialist.
