Pre-Sale Reports

A pre-sale report provides a full, in-depth report on the current condition of the property for the seller. This enables the seller to ascertain and identify any problems before putting the property up for sale. The seller then has time to potentially remedy any negative issues on the property which can affect the sale price. 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.

Verbal Reports

A verbal inspection is recommended when a written report isn’t required for lending or insurance purposes. A verbal inspection is a convenient and cost-effective solution for experienced buyers. A written report is not included in a verbal inspection. During the inspection our building inspector will walk around the property with you outlining any problem areas. If you’re unable to attend the inspection, the inspector will make notes and provide the inspection over the phone. Verbal reports are an excellent way to save money and yet still get the same level of comprehensive inspection that you require. Call us if you would like to save money with a verbal report, undertaken by a certified and qualified precision building inspector.

Maintenance Reports

A precision building inspectors maintenance report will save you money in the short and long term. Call precision building inspectors to book in a maintenance inspection and get a maintenance report done for your property. Our report encompasses NZS 4306: 2005.

Handover Reports

Precision building inspectors handover reports are becoming more and more common within the building industry. Handover reports are for new homes or when purchasing a new property off the plans. A handover report is conducted at the end of your build prior to settlement. This will give you peace of mind that you’re getting the high-end quality build that you paid for and expect. While handover reports may seem unnecessary as a new build has been inspected by the councils building inspection process and Code of Compliance Certification is issued. In our experience we regularly find negative issues that require discussion and or rectification. Precision building inspectors have saved new build owners from arguments and stress with developers before they make final payment for their new house. Our report encompasses NZS 4306: 2005. Give us a call, and we can help you out.
