Whether you are buying or selling a property, you will likely have encountered the term ‘pest and building inspection’. A Timber Pest Inspection is a comprehensive inspection of a property’s timber structures for damage by fungal decay (rot), wood-boring insects, subterranean termites or other timber pests.
Our Timber Pest Inspection, sometimes referred to as a Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection is carried out in accordance with the AEPMA’S Code of Practice For Prior to Purchase Specialist Timber Pest Inspections and Australian Standard AS 4349.3-2010 Inspection of buildings Part 3: Timber pest inspections.
If you are selling a property, a timber pest inspection is a great way to ensure that there are not going to be any unwanted complications once the property is under contract.
Surekil Pest Control have helped families buy and sell property on the Gold Coast, Tweed & Byron for over 20 years, providing expert, friendly service by technicians that are fully licensed, insured and police checked.
A pre-purchase building inspection is a visual appraisal of the condition of a property that highlights all existing defects and areas of concern. It is carried out in accordance with Australian Standard 4349.1 2007 Inspection of Buildings Part 1: Pre purchase property Inspections – Residential buildings.
In conjunction with a timber pest inspection, Surekil can arrange for a building inspection to be carried out at the same time by one of our recommended, independent, qualified, and insured Building Inspectors.

You should have your property regularly inspected for termites but to below are some handy tips help reduce your risk of termite infestation:
If you find termites in your home the first thing to remember is not to touch them. If you have already disturbed them then cover them up and ring Surekil Pest Control. When they are disturbed termites will often leave the workings, which makes it difficult for pest inspectors to locate and treat them. We will recommend a full termite inspection (if you haven’t already had one) to isolate unseen damaged areas such as sub-floor areas. Our team will explain what options are available to treat the termites and protect your home in the future, and also provide a free quote for these services.
CSIRO statistics show that one in five homes are attacked by termites throughout Australia. Throughout the Northern Rivers and the Gold Coast, the rates are actually higher. On average, one in three homes in this region will have issues with termites.
Unfortunately, the more food the termites have, the more eggs the Queen will lay and your termite problem will increase. Please don’t touch the infestation either, as the pests will spread out looking for new food sources and may enter your house. Get in touch with our team as soon as possible.
