No inspection is conducted, and no report is submitted, of inaccessible areas. These include, but may not be limited to, locked rooms, cavity walls, concealed frame timbers, eaves, flat roofs, fully enclosed patios subfloors, soil concealed by concrete floors, fireplace hearths, wall linings, landscaping, rubbish, floor coverings, furniture, pictures, appliances, stored items, insulation, hollow blocks/posts, etc.
However, the inspector will look for signs that are conductive to timber pest infestation such as high moisture areas, timber in ground contact, dead trees or stumps and poor ventilation and drainage. If the inspector feels that timber pest activity and/or damage may exist in concealed areas, an invasive inspection will be recommended in the Timber Pest Inspection Report. It is then up to you in conjunction with the homeowner (if different) to accept the recommended invasive inspection.
