Buying a home that is infested with termites or timber pests, will cost a lot of money to rectify, and will make the cost of an inspection seem insignificant. A professional timber pest inspection could be all that is needed to save prospective buyers thousands of dollars. It could be all that prevents them from buying a home where timber pest damage is already being done.
AS4349.3 is the only recognized standard for pre-purchase inspections. When requesting an inspection you should know what a thorough inspection involves, and have the knowledge to choose a company with suitably qualified operators that can provide a professional service, in accordance with regulations and Australian standards.
