Pest Inspection Scheduling Service

Pest Inspection Scheduling Service

An infestation of pests, including termites, could cause significant damage to your investment property1. While there are no guarantees when it comes to pests, effective management could save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

The cost of preventing, treating and repairing pest infestation including any damage caused is your responsibility as set out in the DHA Lease Agreement. We strongly encourage you to consider regular pest inspections which will help to protect your property.

You can choose to arrange your own pest inspections, or we can coordinate regular inspections on your behalf as part of our Pest Inspection Scheduling Service.

If you elect to use this service, we will arrange for one of our panel contractors to carry out the inspections. The cost of this will be deducted from your monthly rental payment (these costs may vary and could change without notice). The contractor will provide an inspection report that you can access through Online Services.

If the pest service provider identifies on the inspection report that your property requires barrier replenishment, treatments or damage repair (which may include structural repair), the cost of any treatments or repairs is your responsibility. If agreed in writing, DHA can assist to seek a quote on your behalf from a registered contractor and provide contact information as required.

Our Pest Inspection Scheduling Service does not cover:

• any treatment for pests on your property
• repair of damage that they have caused
• replenishment of barriers (see information below)
• treatments for active termites.

Some properties rely solely on chemical termite barriers which act to prevent termite infestation. These barriers need replenishment on a regular basis. It is your responsibility to ensure that the barrier is sufficiently replenished as necessary. If you are uncertain, please contact us to see if your property relies on a chemical barrier.
If there was pest protection installed during construction, the warranty may specify the frequency, nature of inspection or specific inspection company required. In offering this service to you, we do not take responsibility for performing any activities to maintain the warranty associated with the pest protection at your property.
For more information or if you would like DHA to manage the pest inspection schedule for your investment property, please email us or phone 139 342 between 8.30am and 5pm AEST.
