When you are buying a home, it is important to conduct building and pest inspections to ensure that the property is not damaged or infested with pests. You should ensure your contract is subject to a building and pest inspection and make enquiries of an inspector prior to signing the contract to ensure that the timeframe in the Contract for obtaining the report is sufficient.
You may often see why you should have these documents in place however, there are many people that chose not to have them in place. The choice is up to the individual, but it is important to know your rights and how things will work either way.
