Buying a new home? 

For many if not most of us the biggest investment we will ever make is buying a home.

Purchasing a new home or investment property is an exciting time, and while a property can look like the house of your dreams, it’s what you can’t see that can turn your dream home into your worst nightmare!

Termites in particular are almost invisible, completely silent and have the potential to cause extensive damage before you even notice there is a problem. Termites tend to avoid open air and light, and as a result their colonies are typically underground, out of sight or within wood materials. 

Before buying any home it is important that you have a qualified pest technician carry out a Pre - Purchase Timber Pest Inspection.

What's covered in a Timber Pest Inspection?

Our pest control technicians carry out all our Timber Pest Inspections in accordance with Australian Standard AS4349.3 - 2010 Inspection of Buildings - Timber Pest Inspections. This means we inspect for a lot more than just termites!

Following a Timber Pest Inspection of your home and / or business we will supply you with a detailed report:

Our inspection reports include details of:

  • Active termite activity
  • Inactive visible evidence of termite activity
  • Borers (including European House Borers)
  • Fungal decay/wood rot - left unresolved this can weaken exposed timbers over time
  • Conditions conductive to termite attack - this will enable you to take measures to minimise the threat of termites damaging your home

Get peace of mind that your new home is termite free. Book a Timber Pest Inspection with Perth's pest inspection experts today by calling our dedicated customer service team.

Pre Purchase Timber Pest Inspections

  • Ensure you include on the offer and acceptance that your offer to buy the property is subject to a Timber Pest Inspection (Termites, Decay & Borer), and be specific about what findings will rescind your offer.
  • Make sure your inspection is carried out by a qualified and licensed Pest Controller
  • Find out what termite preventative system is currently in place for the home
  • If no preventative systems are in place we strongly recommend you look at getting one installed. When researching this make sure you consider what warranties the company offer, and how long they have been operating for - After all you want to ensure you pick someone that will warrant their own work and be around if anything happens!
  • Continue with regular termite inspections to ensure your home stays free from termites. Consumer Protection recommends that you arrange for a licensed pest control technician to inspect your home at least once a year!
