Providing your lender is happy for you to do your own then yes. Most buyers however, even when they have the required building and timber pest knowledge, find it difficult to remain completely objective and this may lead to poor judgment. It's always advisable to obtain an impartial third-party opinion by an independent expert.
We have used ABIS twice recently on 2 different properties and have been very happy with their punctuality, and efficiency in the building and pest process as well as receiving the detailed reports within a few hours of the inspection. We highly recommend them and will use them again in the future.
