Pre-purchase building pest inspections are crucial in Melbourne because such inspections are not required to be completed by vendors. Most often, contracts for the sale of properties will contain clauses about the building and pests. Ensure that your conveyancer has explained the clause to you because usually the onus is on the purchaser to conduct these inspections at their own cost.
Should you be in this situation, give VIP Pest Control a call so that we can arrange for a pre-purchase building pest inspection. For peace of mind, safety and assurance, having your next property inspected by professionals will ensure that any issues observed can be resolved prior to settlement. Ensure that you communicate proactively with the vendor’s conveyancer, via your conveyancer, about any pest-related issues. Leaving discussions to the last minute could be seen as accepting the property in the condition that you found it.
Here are a few reasons why a professional pest control company is important in this situation.
We understand that not everyone understands pests. That is why we prepare a detailed report which explains our inspection of the prospective property and our assessment and evaluation. This will help you to understand the issues and how they could be resolved. You can also talk to us about the report and we will be more than happy to explain our findings.
Experienced Technicians and Equipment
We employ experienced technicians and use reliable equipment. This ensures that our assessments have no errors and that you can rely on our evaluations without fear. We undergo continuous training and improvement so that we can credibly assess your prospective property and provide a comprehensive review of all pest matters.
Following our inspection, you will be armed with the knowledge to be able to negotiate a lower price should we find pest-related issues. Furthermore, should any aspects of the build or construction not be compliant with Australian Standards, we will let you know.
