Pre-Purchase Termite / Pre-Purchase Pest Inspections For St Lucia Homes…
Pre-Purchase Inspections for St Lucia Homes are generally performed in two parts – Building & Pest
The Building Inspection… This part of the Inspection inspects for structural building faults such as cracks in walls, structural damage etc as well as leaking shower recesses and leaks in the roof. There are many things covered by a skilled Building Inspection – the end result is to detect any potential problem areas that may end up costing you a large amount of money to fix after you have purchased your St Lucia property.
The Pest Inspection… This part of the Inspection inspects for structural and cosmetic termite damage in areas with visual access. The Inspection also covers conducive conditions: which are things that will attract termites to your St Lucia property ie water leaks, timber in ground contact, blocked or non-existent weep holes to ventilate brick walls, gardens and vegetation next to the house etc
The Pest Inspection also covers the Termite Management System (also referred to as a “Termite Barrier”). The Inspector will check to see if a Termite Management System is in place around your St Lucia home, and if there IS one in place, is it still effective and is it still current?
Do You Need a Pre-Purchase Building & Pest Inspection?
If you have ever purchased a used car, you will appreciate the importance of a vehicle inspection – you want to know if the car is safe to drive and if the previous owner has hidden any accident or mechanical problems.
Buying a house in St Lucia is exactly the same!
You would be horrified at the number of Sellers who have had termite attacks and have made the decision to just patch up the damage and hide it rather than having a builder open the walls and rebuild the damaged walls and roof structures. They just sell the house ASAP and run away like rats escaping a sinking ship.
This may sound extreme, but based on experience over 15 years performing Pre-Purchase Inspections in St Lucia, we can honestly say we have found this situation in nearly 60% of the pre-purchase inspections we have performed.
