Pre-purchase House Checks

Our team of professionals will complete a thorough and comprehensive assessment of the entire house, to enable us to provide you with a full property report. In this report, we will explain any structural issues, major and minor repair work, and any other problems that we detect.

When we assess a property, our qualified inspectors cover the entire dwelling, working methodically through a detailed checklist.  The inspection and the report complies with NZ4306:2005 the New Zealand Standard on property inspections.

Pre-sale House Inspection

Our comprehensive reports will highlight any issues with the structure, to enable you to complete any potential remedial work. You can then present the report to your real estate agent, showing clearly the state of the property, and therefore making your house even more attractive to potential buyers.

Obtaining a property report can be particularly beneficial in auction or tender situations, due to the short time frame for buyers’ to be able to make an unconditional offer.

Earthquake Damage Inspection

In the current Christchurch market, most insurance companies require a detailed Earthquake Damage Report for both residential and commercial properties. This can be completed as part of our Standard Residential Dwelling Report and/or our Commercial Report, or we can do a comprehensive assessment that exclusively covers earthquake damage.
