Some initial enquiries can be made with the agent.
- Has the home had any prior inspections? Is there any paperwork? If so ask to see it, it may help in understanding what has happened in the past to this home if anything.
- Any prior termite treatments? This is particularly important. Ascertaining if a warranty is in place and which company did it.
