Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection Services

When you’re considering buying a house, whether it’s for use as a family home or an investment property, the importance of putting the property through a detailed and comprehensive inspection is paramount. A building inspection will provide information on the structural integrity of the property and determine whether there is any evidence of pest infestation, moisture damage or other issues.

Casey Building Inspections offers building, pest/timber and general pre-purchase property inspections to Melbourne clients. From soon-to-be family homes to potential investment properties, our reports provide insight into the condition of a property, giving you peace of mind that your new home is in a good operating condition before you move in.

Pest and Building Inspections

There is great variance in how and where termites attack in the urban environment. Concealment is the primary way termites defend themselves against predators; they like to avoid areas of constant use and are very good at remaining hidden. Unfortunately, this often means they have time to do significant damage to your property before you find any trace of them – which is why it pays to hire a professional. We can carry out our pest and building inspections separately, or combine them for a discounted rate.
