When you are buying a house or commercial property you need to have a Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection. This is usually requested immediately after negotiations and prior to contracts exchanging. Termite Solutions South Coast understands that it is important to have the inspection done as soon as possible so that your purchase can proceed to the next step and you are armed with the correct information regarding the property.

Pre-Purchase Pest Inspections – Why is it so important?

Lets face it, purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments most people ever make. For this reason it is very important that you know exactly what you are buying.

A pre-purchase pest inspection will identify areas under timber pest attack and conditions conductive to timber pest attack. This means you can make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with the purchase.

Pre-Purchase Building Inspections

Because we at Termite Solutions South Coast are pest specialists we conduct and provide only a pest inspection and report. We would recommend a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection be organised with a local and experienced independent Building Inspector.

What are the benefits of having separate Pest and Building Inspections?

By having separate Pest and Building Inspections completed you have two inspectors on site inspecting the property for problems within their level of expertise.


A Building Inspector examines the property and comments on structural damage, conditions conducive to structural damage, as well as any defects in the condition of secondary and finishing elements to the property.

A Pest Inspector on the other hand examines the property and comments on timber pest and damage located. An inspection will assess the following:-

  • Evidence of timber pests
  • Severity of damage caused by timber pests located
  • Susceptibility of building to infestation by timber pests
  • Remedial and protective measures recommended or required (including a quote for any recommended treatment on request)
  • Further inspections required

We are your one stop shop for Timber Pest:-

  • Inspection
  • Detection
  • Eradication
  • Protection

Because Termite Solutions South Coast pest technicians complete termite treatments on a very regular basis, we are able to supply a quote to complete any recommended treatments or preventative systems / zones.

This means that prior to purchasing the property you will have a full understanding of the costs and process involved to eradicate and protect the home from timber pests. This includes warranty inspections and conditions for existing products.

BEWARE: Not all Pest Inspectors are able to quote for and perform termite treatments to live termites found at the property. We would have to perform our own inspection before performing a treatment, as we would not rely on another company’s report. At Termite Solutions South Coast, we are Termite Specialists with over 30 years combined experience in inspecting, detecting, eradicating and protecting your greatest asset from termites.


Termite Solutions is able to service all of your pre-purchase and post-purchase needs.
