Pre Purchase Timber Pest Inspection
Buying your new home or investment property is one of the most important investments you will make in your lifetime. Termites cause over $1 billion damage across Australia annually with recent CSIRO studies indicating that as many as 1 in 3 Australian homes have termites active in their yard. How do you know you’re not buying a house full of termites?
Unlike other pest control companies, at Murray’s, we provide you with a specialised pre-purchase Timber Pest Inspection service dedicated to new property purchases ensuring you don’t buy termites.
How does this service differ from a standard pest inspection? Pre-purchase building inspections inspect and report on termites, borers, and fungal decay according to Australian Standards AS3660. Standard pest inspections only check and report on termites alone. Our pre-purchase pest inspectors go above and beyond in inspecting all accessible areas on your property for termites, borers as well as checking for moisture in wet areas and the perimeter. They will identify and report on conditions conducive to timber pests to ensure that you are armed with the knowledge to purchase your next property with complete confidence before you part with your money.
Did you know?
Almost every house, including houses with concrete floors, are at risk of a termite infestation. 1 in 5 homes will suffer termite damage during their economic lifetime.
The average cost of repairing termite damage is $10,000 but can be a lot more – and that’s NOT including the cost of the termite treatment. (Source: Pacific International Insurance Ltd – the pest industry insurers).
Most building insurance companies do not cover you for termite damage.
Termites are silent, secretive invaders. Most damage is invisible.
