Why You Need A Building & Pest Report On An Apartment
When purchasing an apartment you may not think to order a Building & Pest Inspection, assuming they’re only needed for houses, but this could not be further from the truth. While you may think that structural issues are the responsibility of the Owners’ Corporation, if it’s part of your unit the cost may fall to you. This means that both a Strata Report and Building & Pest Inspection are vital to make sure you’re properly protected.
