Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspections – Dandenong

Buying a property can be stressful.  Our Building inspection and pest inspection reports offer peace of mind for those that want to ensure that they are making the right decision, and the house does not have any sinister concealment of defects.

We will identify both major and minor defects in any house. We check that the building conforms to the relevant building codes and standards and give specialist advice regarding any major problems and how they will affect the property now and in the future. We will identify and report on evidence of timber pest activity and/or damage caused by termites, borers or fungal decay. We will look for evidence of any previous timber pest problem or conditions that make the property more susceptible to timber pests. House inspections are an essential tool in ensuring that there are no hidden surprises after you purchase. During our house inspections we will also look for asbestos and defective cover-ups.

Our building inspectors have many years of experience in the construction industry who will search the house in order to give you peace of mind.

We look for any previous timber pest problems and report on any conditions that make the property more susceptible to timber pests.

Don’t Risk Termite Damage in Your New Home; Call Melbourne House Check for a Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection in Dandenong or the Eastern Suburbs

Did you know that one in every three homes in Victoria have some form of termite damage? Many buyers shopping for homes in Dandenong or other Melbourne Eastern Suburbs are unaware of this fact, but it’s an important point to consider if you are on the verge of making an offer. Buying a home without getting a pest inspection could mean unknowingly purchasing a termite problem. Calling Melbourne House Check for a building and pest inspection in Dandenong before you finalise your purchase could end up saving you thousands of dollars in repairs.

Controlling Risk When You Buy a House

The median cost of a home in Dandenong is around the $610,000 range. Buying a house is a substantial investment. It’s also not a decision that you should make lightly. Buying a home can be the greatest thing you ever do for your family, giving you a place to share years of unforgettable moments. It can also lead towards financial disaster. As such, being able to tell the difference between a ‘good investment’ and a ‘bad investment’ is imperative when you decide to purchase a house.

One factor that can make or break a home investment is termite damage. Termites can wreak havoc on the structural integrity of a home, demanding thousands of dollars in extermination costs and even more in repair and termite protection expenses. Dealing with termites is a costly proposition for homeowners, which is why some people with termite problems want to get out from under their affected houses in any way possible. Some sellers will try to hide termite damage or termite infestation issues from buyers. Other sellers might not even know the problem exists.

Either way, investing in a termite inspection in Dandenong is a necessity. You never know what sellers might be choosing not to disclose, or what surprises might be hiding behind the walls of a house. Hiring an inspector and finding out for yourself is one of the very best ways to control risk when buying a house. If you want your real estate investment to be a good one, a thorough inspection can help make that happen.
