Top reasons why you should have a building inspection done if you’re planning to buy a property in Townsville

It is critical that a thorough building and pest inspection in Townsville is carried out to identify any timber pests on any property that you might be interested in purchasing. You might think it's a poor investment of time and money to conduct a building inspection, but if you don't have a skilled and licensed commercial building inspector perform a comprehensive pre purchase building and pest inspection on the home, you could be in for some unpleasant surprises.

Let's have a look at the top three reasons why you should get a pre purchase building and pest inspection to identify any timber pests and any damage from a commercial building inspector before you buy a dwelling or specialised property.

1. Building inspection - check to see that the dwelling is structurally sound, and that it is safe for your family or tenants

It is essential that the property you buy is structurally sound as purchasing a home represents a significant financial commitment, if the home is not structurally sound, you might be buying a whole host of problems. Faulty construction evidence may indicate that there are flaws in the structure, which, if the structure partially or wholly collapses, may result in significant injuries. Conducting a building inspection and examining the building elements prior to the acquisition of the property can reveal any areas that may be unsafe due to the presence of asbestos or other potentially hazardous materials.

2. Adherence to Construction Industry rules and regulations for Townsville pre purchase building and pest inspections

If the house you're looking for wasn't constructed to code because of poor craftsmanship or unlawful construction, you will have to finance repairs/ rectification to Comply condition with the relevant codes, as required by the Building Code of Australia and the Australian Building Standards.

3. Building inspection for damage to the property and timber pest activity

During the building inspection, both the inside and outside of the house will be scrutinised in detail by a trained commercial building inspector, and Timber Pest professional. The foundations, roof space/ void, including any subfloor regions, and the roof surface where accessible are all examined in detail. In addition to the overview evaluation of the home's plumbing and electricity, the evaluation inspection also includes the doors, windows, and frames of the home. They will look for signs of water damage and high moisture, as well as any subterranean termites that may be present.
