House inspections, when they matter
Well, some of you know we are planning a tree change to the Sunshine Coast.
We did 2 short inspections of a renovated ~100 year old Victorian Queenslander & an offer has been accepted.
We currently live 1900km away in Melbourne.
Yesterday the pest & building inspection was done.
The photos in the reports look like the same house, but the report seems to be talking about another house to the one we thought we were buying.
Termites in proximity to house, previous evidence of termites, borers, wet rot, rusting gutters etc...
Is there someone here who has some expertise in this stuff, who can look at the reports for me & advise me:
If this is normal and is only a matter of throwing money at it to fix it
How much money (wild estimate) to pay people to rectify
Run screaming from the house in a southerly direction
People are dissapointed, I can tell you that.
