Sadly many people are still falling in to the trap of buying a new home or investment property without first undertaking adequate pest inspection. This mistake is all too common in the areas Federal Pest Control cover, and is causing heartache with new owners being left with costly hidden problems with their new property.
In Queensland it is standard for contracts of sale to include a building and pest condition report.
However, sellers are not legally obliged to fix every issue raised by pest inspections prior to the sale of a property.
This means while a major termite infestation could result in the termination of a contract of sale, this is only IF the infestation was both obvious and known to the seller at the time the price was negotiated.
Fortunately Federal Pest Control offer pre-purchase inspections of prospective properties, to be conducted before you finalise the purchase of any property.
Our expert technician will identify which (if any) termite management system has been used on the home and the maintenance requirements of the system.
A Federal Pest Control tech will also be able to tell you if the property is in an area where there is risk of termite attack.
Every member of our team is local to the area they service, with local expertise and an intimate knowledge of the characteristics of pests in the area, especially termites, allowing them to provide you with tailored expert advice and localised professional solutions.
While a building inspection is not a warranty against future defects, when a homeowner installs Federal’s Comprehensive Termite Management System, they are eligible to be granted a $100,000.00 Timber Replacement Warranty providing them with total peace of mind as well financial security.
It’s important to note that unfortunately the average home owner’s insurance policy does not cover termite damage.
Federal Pest Control also recommend you make it a condition of your contract that you are satisfied with the outcome of our inspection.
As REIQ’s chief executive Antonia Mercorella says;
“Termite damage should be caught by the building and pest inspection, which is why it is so strongly recommended that all buyers get their own building and pest inspection done.”
