Building Pest Inspection

A pre-purchase building inspection is a report carried out before you buy a property. The report will identify significant building defects or problems found with the property and the inspector will compare the property inspected with buildings of similar age and construction.


Affordable Pest Control can combine your pre purchase pest and building inspection reports and save you money and time. Our Reports are fully descriptive, they show the site, the exterior, the roof exterior, the roof void, the sub floor areas for timber floor construction and the entire interior room by room. They also include photographs of defects and any other problems we find.


Affordable Pest Control has been advising home buyers for over 10 years. We have inspected hundreds of properties and are committed to our clients and their needs when it comes to purchasing their dream home. We have the experience necessary to provide you with detailed property inspection reports whether you’re buying, selling or renovating.


A thorough inspection will identify existing and possibly potential problems that may arise in the future. Some agents may suggest that there is no need to get a building inspection. “she’ll be right the house is only 5 years old” A pest and building inspection puts you, the purchaser, in a much better negotiating position with the selling Agent. Most Agents don’t like what we find, therefore that’s how we know we are doing a good job. Finding problems before you buy may allow you to renegotiate the price of the purchase property or have repairs carried out by the vendor, or a price reduction, prior to the purchase.

It depends on the type of treatment. Termite treatments can be effective for up to 5 years, and other kinds of infestations may require only one or two treatments or may need to be repeated on a more regular basis. For specific details, please call or email us.

After treatment, it is advisable to wait for 5-7 days before cleaning your house, if possible. We will always advise you of any waiting time before applying treatment, so you know exactly what to do.

Unless it’s an emergency, it’s best to plan pest control services well ahead of time. Because pests become more active in warmer temperatures, it’s best to schedule pest control in Spring, when most start to lay eggs and resurface.

In colder weather, it’s harder to reach them, as they’re usually hibernating. To avoid reactionary tactics, call us to discuss the best approach for your premises.

To prepare for pest control adequately, you should cover open items and move furniture to give exterminators easy access to harder-to-reach areas. Most importantly, make sure you have proper plans to relocate you and your family — including any pets — for the day.

You shouldn’t have to wait too long — sometimes just a couple of hours. To get an accurate idea of how long you should wait, speak to us, and we’ll give you an accurate figure for your specific service.

There are a few things you should discuss with us before your service:

  • When should I receive pest control?
  • How can I bestprepare my home or business premises?
  • How long will it take?
  • How long until I can come back?

You should get a building and pest inspection performed on any property you are thinking of buying. It’s also a good idea to arrange an inspection for any property you wish to sell, so you know exactly what condition it is in.

Building and pest inspection costs will depend on the size and location of the property that you would like us to inspect, but we guarantee it will be very competitive.

The length of time that it takes to complete a building and pest inspection will also depend on the size and location of the property. For an accurate estimate, please call or email us.
