All About The Pest Inspections
If you are planning on buying a house in Newcastle, and the surrounding areas, then it’s essential to get a pest inspection before you do. It is the buyer that has to pay for the pest inspection, not the seller. Given the price of the inspection relative to the price of the property, it is better to ensure it is done correctly anyway. You don’t want to move into a home to find pests – it will sour the entire purchase.
The pre-purchase pest inspections can do more than identify existing problems before they grow bigger. Some homes and commercial properties are liable to have an infestation of some kind due to the way they have been set up. There should be no direct connection between the earth and the building without some form of insulation. Failure to properly insulate a building can also encourage pests to come in.
Paying for a building and pre-purchase pest inspections will give you a better idea of the overall condition of the property. You’ll know of any major and minor structural issues, maintenance problems, safety hazards, and evidence of previous or current pest activity/infestation.
There is no way you should move into a property without doing a pest inspection first. Hunter and Coast can ensure that the area is suitable for habitation. We will check for all the typical pests – rodents, ants, termites, cockroaches, mites, spiders, fleas, flies, mosquitos, and anything else that could be an issue.
How Much Do Pre-Purchase Pest Inspections Cost?

For a three- to four-bedroom home that’s around 200 to 250 square meter in size, expect the cost of pest inspection to range around $350 to $500.
