Benefits of a Building and Pest Inspection Report

Unlike a basic building inspection, Building and Pest Inspections identify the presence of termites and other pests, as well as highlighting conditions conducive to future activity. Due to the devastating damage termites can cause, these reports are considered vital in most parts of Australia.

If major defects or termite activity is found, our reports provide the knowledge you need to either avoid purchasing the affected property – saving you from stress and financial loss – or assist in negotiating an appropriate price that factors in corrective action that may need to be taken.

By obtaining a Jim’s Building and Pest Inspection, our clients are also able to plan ahead and factor in any additional costs such as maintenance, repairs and future renovations. Due to the popularity and necessity of these inspections, we offer the Building and Pest reports combined at a discounted rate – saving you money and helping you to minimize risk.
