Pre Purchase Inspections Central Coast and Newcastle


Pest Inspection

A Pest Inspection, also known as a ‘Timber Pest Inspection’ is recommended before purchasing a property to ensure that no hidden structural issues exist. Timber pests include termites, wood borers and wood decay fungi (wood rot). These timber pests are common in all properties and can undermine timber structures.

A Pest Inspection is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED and looks for four very important things:

  1. Subterranean Termites or evidence of termite activity and termite damage as well as evidence of any previous Termite treatment. (Very Important)
  2. Timber borers or evidence of timber borers and damage.
  3. Wood rot (wood decay fungi) damage and potential safety hazards in timber structures such as rotten timber steps, handrails and balconies.
  4. We report on any conditions that may be conducive to Termite attack or conditions that can cause wood rot.
