Piling inspection for 2 bed cottage (88sqm)

Posted 6 months ago

A recent pre purchase building inspection report has noted that "there is evidence of live borer although it does not appear that there is any significant deterioration as a result". Due to the age of the dwelling (built early 1900's), the inspection report has recommended a professional borer inspection be carried out. I am interested to know the extent of the borer and cost to resolve . This property is under contract so this inspection is rather urgent as part of the due diligence process.

There are no real time constraints and there is relatively easy access under the house
