What a pest inspection involves

Timber pests like termites (sometimes called ‘white ants’) and borers are hard to spot when you are walking through an Open House. Fresh paint can sometimes cover up what’s really going on like woodrot in timbers.

That’s why it is so important to have a Timber Pest inspection (pest inspection) done before you make an offer.

It means you know what you’re really buying and, if any problems are found, negotiate the price down. In fact termite damage rarely means you have to walk away – instead it means you can get a better deal on a property you love.

We will never re-sell your report to another buyer you can be SURE of that.

When we conduct a visual pest inspection along with your building assessment, everything is taken care of for you.

That means we;

  • arrange access with the real estate agent (but never disclose what we find to them, unless you approve us to do so)
  • spend 1-2 hours assessing and documenting the property’s condition including timber pest activity (including photos)
  • take particular care and access all accessible areas, subfloors, roof space, internal and external areas
  • phone you that same day or meet on site to talk through what we’ve found and how we rate the risk of termite activity
  • send you a fully comprehensive, easy to follow report within 24 business hours.

The pest inspection is available by itself, as an extension to your Building Report or as part of The Works package which also includes a Compliance Report.

When I contacted a number of Building and Pest inspection companies for quotes, I was given a price for both. When I contacted Surety I was given a clear understanding of what I would receive during the inspection and after. Therefore I had a good understanding of what was going to take place.

I gave Surety the go ahead and from there everything was carried out in a very timely manner. The reports were very informative and spelled out all details of what would needed to be repaired and fixed. Bruce carried out the Inspections and gave a very detailed verbal report. 

Thank you Surety for your great service.” Phil Grinham, Sth Coast buyer

“My first contact with Surety Property Reports was when we were selling our country property. Surety was the company hired by the purchaser. We were so impressed by the thoroughness we decided when we purchase a property we would use their service. We did and could not be more pleased. The report was very well written. This company was reliable and if they were running late would ring and let you know. We found them to be honest with the quote. Old fashioned service at its best. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”
