This is a visual inspection but we are looking for structural issues that maybe expensive to repair. We look at the subfloor and ceiling space for the integrity of the building. We check for any water leaks and advise accordingly. We aren't commenting on superficial, wear and tear or general maintenance issues as these things should be obvious to the naked eye. It is the things that you may not be able to see and could cost you money down the track. The pest inspection is checking for the presence of termites both active and the damage they may have caused. They are also looking for evidence of previous termite treatments that have been carried out. The inspector is also checking for wood rot and wood decay both within the property and the surrounding structures in the yard, like fences or retaining walls.
We can tell you if we think there is asbestos present but if you want a definitive answer and advice, you need to call an asbestos inspector/tester.

Two Inspectors will provide the most thorough building and pest inspection on the market. We have one inspector dedicated to the building aspect and one for the pest aspect. Our pest inspector is working daily in the pest control industry so he has extensive professional experience regarding pest issues. Many building inspectors have a pest control licence so they can sign off on a pest inspection too but haven’t worked in the industry. As a real estate purchase is such a significant investment, you need the most thorough building and pest inspection so you are made aware of any issues with the property.
