Pre-purchase Stump Inspections
Before going unconditional on a house contract, it is important to ensure that the entire house is in a good condition. Most people usually book in a Building and Pest inspection, however overlook the need for a stump inspection when purchasing a house on stumps.
The stumps are the foundations of your home and have a flow on effect for everything above so should be structurally sound before any renovation works are completed in the house. A lot of Queenslander or Colonial homes around Toowoomba, Warwick and the Darling Downs still have the original timber stumps holding the house up and many are over 100 years old!
Timber stumps are great for setting off the heritage look, but should be checked for damage from termites or moisture and to ensure the correct level is being maintained, particularly in reactive soils.
