Termite and timber pest inspections can be done as part of your pre-purchase due diligence or as an annual health check service for your new home.

The chance of a termite infestation in Australia is high with hundreds of species, and at least 20 of them capable of eating through solid wood. This can cause serious damage which can results in expensive risks to the structural integrity of your home.

Our inspectors are all qualified timber pest inspectors who will inspect every room for termite activity (if there is safe access). This includes the property boundary or, up to 30 metres from the main building for larger properties.

The report will detail:

  • Any areas of termite, borer, and wood decay activity.
  • Areas of termite, borer, and wood decay damage.
  • Conditions conducive to a termite attack.
  • Construction issues that may facilitate termite entry.

The electrical, plumbing and gas report records electrical, plumbing and gas fittings and fixture operation on the day of inspection. In an average house there can be over 100 electrical, plumbing and gas items to check.

This inspection can be completed early with your Structural or Structural Plus inspection or later as the Pre-Settlement inspection.

There are advantages to either option. Items picked up early allow the seller time to fix issues or source materials. While inspecting at settlement gives you real time results. If completed early, there is always the possibility items can break before settlement.

Most clients prefer us to complete this report early and complete the pre settlement themselves, using our report as a guide.

This report complies with Australian Standard 4349.0. This is not a compliance inspection. A compliance inspection of technical aspects is not included and needs to be conducted by a licensed electrician, plumber and gas fitter.

Our swimming pool and safety barrier inspection will highlight issues at the time of inspection about the pumps and filtration system, pool heating, shell and finishes of the pool itself and the safety barrier.

Any non-compliance of the safety barrier will also be noted on the report.

The report satisfies the REIWA Gas and Electrical Annexure and is recommended for those properties with a pool.

This service is available to our Metro Perth clients only. Enter your post code to check if you’re within our service area.

This inspection is generally completed 5 to 7 days prior to settlement. It is a chance for you to check everything is in the same condition as it was when you first placed your offer, and everything is working as it should. 

The report records plumbing, gas and electrical fittings and fixture operation on the day of inspection. In an average house there can be over 100 electrical, plumbing and gas items to check.

It is very similar to our Electrical Plumbing and Gas Inspection so most clients choose one or the other. There are advantages to either option. Items picked up early allow the seller time to fix issues or source materials. While inspecting at settlement gives you real time results. If completed early, there is always the possibility items can break before settlement.

This report complies with Australian Standard 4349.0. This is not a compliance inspection. A compliance inspection of technical aspects is not included and needs to be conducted by a licensed electrician, plumber and gas fitter.

Hi there, 

We see you have added an Electrical, Plumbing and Gas inspection (EPG) with a Pre-Settlement inspection. 

Please note these are very similar inspections, just performed at different times. The EPG occurs during your pre-purchase inspection, while the Pre-Settlement occurs 5-7 days before settlement. 

If you require both please proceed to check out. Alternatively, remove one and continue.

If you would like further information, please call our office before proceeding to check out on (08) 6184 5624
