We recommend this takes place 4-6 weeks before going to market, allowing time for any issues or maintenance to be rectified and the report updated if necessary. Our report encompasses NZS 4306: 2005.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do a building inspection?
Knowledge is power when buying a property. Protect yourself from hidden repairs and maintenance issues. Buy and sell with confidence with a pre-sale or pre-purchase inspection.
Do I need a building inspection for a newly constructed building?
Yes. Often new home buyers are overwhelmed with the excitement when acquiring a new home and miss critical details. Buyers usually rely on the new home builder/developers’ warranty, but many of the defective items are only covered for the first 12 to 24 months. If problems are not reported in time before the warranty expires, they will not be addressed by the builder/developer. Buyers are not trained in defect recognition. Items that should be a concern are often missed or overlooked. This is why you need a professional building inspector.
What does a building inspection include?
A building inspection will cover the interior and exterior and the entire house structure from the roof down to the foundations. The inspector will look for any poor construction practices and make notes of any repairs that might be required.
Do building inspectors fail an inspection?
The answer is no. A professional building inspection is done on an unbiased basis. Our inspectors act as general practitioners of a house and pinpoint the problems to the buyers. Many defects are repairable on different levels and the decision belongs to the buyers.
What if the inspection report reveals problems?
No house is perfect. If the inspector identifies any problems, it doesn’t mean you should or should not buy the house, only that you will know in advance what to expect. If your budget is tight, or if you don’t want to become involved in future repair work, this information will be important to you. If minor or major defects are found, a seller may agree to make repairs before your purchase.
When do I call a building inspector?
Typically, a building inspector is contacted immediately after the contract or purchase agreement has been signed. Before you sign, be sure there is an inspection clause in the sales contract, making your final purchase obligation contingent on the findings of a professional building inspection. This clause should specify the terms and conditions to which both the buyer and seller are obligated.
