What Is A Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection?

Pre-Purchase Inspections for Brisbane 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 Brisbane 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 Brisbane 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 Brisbane home, and if there IS one in place, is it still effective and is it still current?


Do You Need a Pre-Purchase 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 Brisbane 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 18 years performing Pre-Purchase Inspections in Brisbane, we can honestly say we have found this situation in nearly 60% of the pre-purchase inspections we have performed.


Can You Afford NOT to Have a Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection Performed?

Imagine buying your dream home in Brisbane, and making the decision NOT to have it inspected PRIOR to purchasing it…

Only to find that once you’ve moved in, you find that the house has a devastating amount of structural building faults and/or termite damage!

Then imagine having to find tens of thousands of extra dollars to rectify those damages! It’s a heart-breaking situation that happens to alot of Brisbane Home Buyers, but it doesn’t have to!

Make sure you have a Pre-Purchase Inspection performed before your sign on the dotted line for your next Home or Investment Property in Brisbane! It could potentially save you THOUSANDS of $$$!

    Overall We Are Very HAPPY With The Service We Get From Silks Every Year

    5 STAR RATING – Silks have been looking after our home in East Brisbane for the past 5 years. We had them install a termite barrier around the home shortly after we purchased it in January 2012, and we have Adam come out every year to inspect for termites. What we love about Silks is that they send us a reminder when we are due for the inspection, so we dont have to worry about keeping track of it, we just get the reminder and book it straight in. I’ve found Adam to be very switched on and he is very thorough at what he does. Overall we are very happy with the service we get from Silks every year and will continue to use them for years to come.

    We Were So WORRIED When We Found Termites

    5 STAR RATING – We recently had Adam from Silks Pest Control come out to our home in Holland Park. I had found termites when I was vaccuming and had hit the skirting board with the vacuum – the skirting board literally caved in! And then we saw the termites running around in there and started to panic! I asked our Neighbour who she had recently used for her Termite problems and she highly recommended Adam from Silks. So we gave him a call that morning, and he was just so helpful and calming over the phone. He came out that afternoon, performed the inspection, and found 4 other spots where the termites were. He treated all of those areas, then came back a few weeks later to make sure the treatment had worked. He also explained that we had no barrier in place to prevent termite attacks and provided… Read More “We Were So WORRIED When We Found Termites”
