What are building and pest inspections?

They are inspections of a property that assess the condition inside and outside of the property. They include detailed reports to real estate agent on structural elements such as foundations, beams, walls, windows, etc., and pest situations including termites, wood boring insects and mold. The objective is to give buyers an accurate picture of what type of repairs or renovations may be needed in order to maintain or improve the value of a property.

Building inspections check for a range of structural issues. These include:

  • Foundations, walls, floors and roof voids
  • Plumbing problems; electrical wiring and other systems
  • Signs of dampness or water intrusion inside or outside the property
  • Surface finishes such as plaster stucco and paint finishes
  • Visual evidence of pests in the property
  • Soft flooring things such as carpets and vinyls
  • Any hazardous materials present on-site.

Pest inspections check for various pests and organisms, including termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, mice, rats and other wildlife as well as diseases that affect plants such as fungi and bacteria adhering to Australian standards. They also check to see if there are any visible signs of damage from the pest infestation or checks for pests hiding in inaccessible places.

Why are inspections important?

A thorough inspection is important as it helps to identify any potential issues that could negatively impact the cost of the property. Most notably by uncovering any structural defects or signs of pests. Inspections also provide assurance to buyers that they will be getting a safe, high-quality dwelling at a fair asking lowest price before signing on the dotted line.


The building and pest inspection process typically involves a qualified inspector visiting the property and conducting a comprehensive assessment of all elements within the dwelling. This includes both internal and external fixtures, as well as any additional structures on the property such as outbuildings, pool houses and sheds. Once the inspections have been completed, a report outlining their findings will be provided to the buyer or seller so they can make an informed decision about their purchase or sale.

  1. Arrange for a pest inspector to visit the property;
  2. The inspector will conduct an internal and external inspection of the dwelling and any additional structures on the property;
  3. Inspectors look for signs of defects, pests or impairment, both visible and hidden;
  4. The inspector will take photos where necessary;
  5. After finishing their evaluations, they’ll draw up a building inspection report outlining their findings which should be given to both buyers and sellers alike.
  6. Buyers/sellers can then make an informed decision based on the information provided in the pest inspection report.
