Why having a Building and Pest Inspection is so important
Whether you’re purchasing your first home, next home or investment property you need to follow a detailed process in order to make your purchase successful.
One of the steps involved yet often overlooked is having a building and pest inspection completed on the property. This condition should be written into the purchase contract (14 days) and allows you, the buyer, to conduct a Building and Pest Inspection and be happy with the report’s finding. Without it, you may find your purchase has some hidden secrets.
These can be in the form of foundation issues, roof damage or cracks in load bearing walls that creep up not long after the sale. Sadly, by this stage it is too late, and the you may be stuck with expensive repair bills to make things right. By having a building and pest inspection completed on the property you are about to purchase, you can have the inside knowledge on any major problems. This way, you aren’t buying any hidden headaches.
