Piling inspection for 2 bed cottage (88sqm)

Posted 2 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.
