Our Building Inspector Uses the Latest Pest Detection Technology

While minor defects are maintenance issues that can be rectified easily, pest problems can cause major hazards for your property purchase. At Altez, we use the latest technology to ensure all possible pest activity and areas damaged or prone to pest activity are properly addressed. Here’s all you need to know about what we do to give you the information you need on your Geelong building:

This way, you can prevent pest activity by carrying out the necessary repairs or renovation on the area concerned.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a pest inspector to inspect my new build before the settlement date?

When you purchase a property, you never know the potential complications that could arise, not without enlisting an inspection. Buying a home is often a major investment and an inspection can quickly identify the various problems or prospective issues down the line. If these turn out to be major safety hazards, you may wish to step back from the property purchase or enforce some conditions from repairs being made prior to the closing of the sale or for the cost of any required repairs to be deducted from the asking price.

Do you provide Geelong building inspections for residential and commercial properties?

Yes, we do. Altez Building Inspection provides business and residential property inspections in Geelong. We always examine our client’s property down to every last detail so that they may be protected from liability and financial stress.

Will pest inspectors damage my home in their search for termites?

Not at all. Because we use non-invasive technology, we won’t be tearing down walls or undoing fixtures. We can complete detailed thermal imaging scans among other pest detection methods without ever disrupting your property.

Why do I need a build handover inspection from qualified building inspectors, not just my real estate agent?

Many home buyers and investment property buyers will often need the help of a professional building surveyor because a real estate agent’s stake in the sale of the property is simply their own gain. It’s easy to see why when you distinguish the different roles between real estate agents and building inspectors.

A real estate agent’s role is to sell houses, not examine them and recommend on what to do with defects. They have no interest in protecting you from financial damages or liability. They are also not qualified to perform pre-purchase building inspections.

Qualified building inspectors have the necessary training and certification to evaluate your property and advise you on necessary rectifications if defects are found. They are experienced building surveyors with relevant industry background in carrying out a wide variety of building inspections no matter if you’re interested in a residential or a commercial investment property.

What will my detailed report contain?

Your detailed report will contain the results of your building and pest inspections. This includes any pest related issues, structural damage and major and minor defects. Our inspectors will include their recommendations on alternative solutions on repairs, trades works and other rectifications when damages are found so you can plan for your next steps.
