The inspection for Termites is a critical need; as if present the damage that termites will cause can easily run into thousands to fix.
If this damage is found by the purchaser’s inspection it could potentially kill the sale of your property as most purchasers are now buying properties SUBJECT TO TIMBER AND PEST INSPECTION…
So the need to know the condition of your home is now even more critical!
Even if the house is built on a concrete foundation termites can still gain access.
Termites in Melbourne are more prevalent than most people realise. They live in dark, moist, areas and eat the timber in your house, inside and out up to the paint work. They work together as a colony 24 hours, day and night
