What is the difference between a building inspection and a pest inspection?
A pre-purchase building inspection report will identify any damage as a result of termites, but it won’t detail if termites or other timber destroying pests are present, it is therefore imperative to ensure you purchase both the pre purchase Building Inspection and Pest Inspection so as to comply with the clauses applied in the contract of sale by the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia.
Is it cheaper to combine the BUILDING inspection and the PEST inspection?
