Before you buy a house in Perth, you will need to have a timber pest inspection report prepared to make sure the property is not infested by termites or other timber pests. The purpose of the Pre-purchase Timber Pest Inspection Report is to assist you, the client, to identify and understand any Timber Pest issues observed at the time of inspection.
The pre purchase timber pest inspection in Perth should be carried out in accordance with Australian Standard 4349.3 which is a nationally accepted standard for timber pest inspections and reports.
Australian Standard 4349.3 – 2010 stipulates that a pre purchase timber pest inspection should be undertaken as early in the buying process as practicable. This way, the purchaser will know about the condition of the property and will be able to make a better informed decision as to whether to proceed with the purchase. A pre purchase inspection report may be suitable for a vendor to include with the papers for the sale of a property.
The inspection report will provide advice within the agreed scope to a prospective purchaser or vendor regarding the condition of the Perth property in relation to the activity of timber pests.
Our pre purchase timber pest inspection shall comprise non-invasive inspection of the property for timber pests in accordance with Australian Standard 4349.3-2010
