When should Albury Wodonga buyers arrange a Building and Pest Inspection? When you purchase a property and exchange contracts there is a 5 day ‘cooling–off’ period. During this time, you have the option to cancel the contract providing you give written notice. Many buyers arrange a Building and Pest inspection during the cooling off period. It is recommended however, that you arrange the inspection before you exchange contracts as this gives you ample time to digest the information and the ability to adjust your offer based on the building and pest inspection findings. We strongly recommend that property buyers carry out a Combined Building and Pest Inspection to provide you with full insight into a property. We are available to carry out Building and Pest Inspections wide from Monday to Saturday.
