Having your property inspected for termites- it’s like going to the dentist, we know we’ve got to do it, but we put it off until pain strikes!
Do you have enough building insurance to rebuild or repair your investment property should something catastrophic like a fire, a flood, or bad tenants destroy your property?
If you said yes, did you know that you can’t insure your home for damage done by termites?
Imagine…... There is a storm, the roof is damaged and there is water damage inside the home. The insurance assessor determines that your roof gave way because it had been damaged by termites. You find out too late that building insurance policies don’t cover the costs of repairs or replacement of items lost because there was termite damage. You’re devastated!
But there is a solution. You can protect yourself from this nightmare by simply having your investment property inspected for termites at least once a year, every year.
Termite inspections don’t stop termites from getting into your home but with regular inspections if termites do get in they will be detected early, before they have had time to cause large scale damage. Early detection means that damage will be minimal and so will the costs of treating the termite infestation and repairing the damage termites have caused.
PestCare, a locally owned and operated company, are offering Remax Caloundra landlords termite inspections done to the Australian Standard for $250 GST included, that’s a saving of $53 on the inspection, but it could save you thousands in building repairs and a lot of heartache.
