We had our pest and building inspection done in our new house 2 weeks ago. This is not a must but most people will normally have it checked when they purchase a resale property just to be on the safe side.
We are glad that we are buying a newer property so not much pest problems. One thing in Australia, termite is something very common in houses as most are wood based. The previous owner has a termite guard installed around the house so we can continue to use stuff like premise termite to keep our house from being attacked by termites.
Now we are waiting for our final inspection before we could collect the keys… getting really excited! 🙂
