Tips When Buying A New Home

Buying a new home or investment property is a very exciting and stressful time, our advice to you is not to overlook having a Timber Pest Inspection carried out on the property.   One of our clients has just found out how important they are.

Purchasing his new property at Auction the sale was completed just over a week ago, he did not get an independent Timber Pest Inspection on the property.

We have now located Active Termites in every wall of the property and the damage is very significant!  He has major drainage, wood-rot and termite damage.

Actual picture of some of the termite damage.

A Timber Pest Inspection would have detected and made him well aware of ALL these issues.  If  he was aware he may have reconsidered this purchase or perhaps he could have negotiated a better price saving at least $40,000 off the sale price.

Now his only option is spending a small fortune in rectifying all these issues just to make it safe to live in.

Moral of the story:  Spend a little on an independent Timber Pest Report (Pre Purchase) and save yourself thousands of dollars and a lot of anguish in the near future.

We are happy to assist with any Pre Purchase enquiries…
