Building on decades of experience in the industry, we inspect properties thoroughly yet efficiently, to ensure you are able to make fully informed decisions going forward. Our highly qualified team know how to spot not just the signs of a current infestation (at any stage), but also potential weakness points that you may want to consider.

WHY GET A TIMBER PEST INSPECTION BEFORE YOU BUY?

Getting a pre purchase pest building inspection in Fremantle, Perth or anywhere else in WA that is designed to check for pests is an important step that all prospective homeowners or investors should be aware of. It is a sensible course of action and could save you thousands of dollars in future repair, maintenance or even rebuilding costs. For example, if important structural timber is weakened or damaged by termites, replacement could cost much more than the value of the timber itself. Also, under Western Australian law, it is your right to have the property inspected whilst under contract; contracts of sale also specify that you accept the property as is, so once it’s all settled if you find that there is a well-established pest problem, you cannot make the previous owner pay for it.

Our affordable fees, versus thousands in future costs (or even the expense of having chosen the wrong property to buy), makes booking a pre purchase pest inspection in Perth, Fremantle or beyond the right answer.
