WE ARE AUCKLAND’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE BUILDING INSPECTOR
Proudly Supporting Greater Auckland with Trusted Home Inspections
Many people mistakenly think a qualified builder is, therefore, automatically a qualified building inspector. This is not the case. A builder is not normally qualified as a plumber, an electrician, a roofer, a heating and ventilation engineer, or a property inspector or building surveyor. A qualified property inspector or building surveyor is a qualified, professional building surveyor which is a specialised profession and not a builder or other trade. In some cases, a builder may have these extra qualifications, but not automatically, so you must be sure you know who is undertaking your inspection.
Our team have trained for 3 years to become qualified building inspectors and building surveyors, and are also builders and quantity surveyors. This allows us to provide the extensive all-around understanding and ability to provide the most comprehensive inspections required.
Not only do we provide trusted home inspections of both commercial and residential properties – we offer the most comprehensive list of checks so that you know exactly what state the house is in from the ground up – and can make an informed decision before you buy or sell it. Property protection requires you to know what you need to protect it from, and our services can point out any weaknesses to keep on your radar.
Our Report Services
Comprehensive builders reports covering new builds, structural integrity, drug testing, house maintenance, warranties and more. Builders reports are a complete service that ticks all the boxes you want to keep your property’s information up to date and point out any repairs required.
LEAKY BUILDING REPORTS
Leaky homes are prevalent in Auckland, and we know how to spot one. We can catch any potential leaky home issues that can become a very expensive to fix. If your home was built between the mid 1980s – mid 2000s, then you should definitely consider get a leaky building report completed for your peace of mind.
For buildings of all kinds, not just those with the Leaky Home cladding types – we provide comprehensive Weathertightness reports to check your building is watertight and protected from the elements.
Suitable for any property before it changes hands, or for regular inspection to keep on top of essential maintenance and structural soundness. Our inspections are thorough and take note of all structural, visible and working parts in your property to identify weaknesses.
pre-purchase & pre-sale inspections
Before you buy or sell a property, know what you are getting yourself into. Organising a pre-purchase or pre-sale inspection is essential for both parties to understand the condition of a property. They help you avoid buying or selling a damaged home that can lead to unforeseen costs or even legal action.
Our other services
House Maintenance Inspection
Your property’s critical systems need a critical eye now and again to keep your property running smoothly. We provide an inspection that thoroughly checks all systems and highlights any potential problems now or in the future – saving you time and money.
Certificate of Acceptance
We offer accredited services that include providing a certificate of acceptance when building work has taken place without building consent, or in situations where a code compliance certificate could not be provided.
New Construction Phase Inspections
Keep mistakes to an absolute minimum on your site. This inspection is the ideal way to keep track of your builder. We will visit the property multiple times to ensure it is running smoothly and on budget.
New Construction Inspection
Before you sign off on a newly constructed property, have the building inspected so that any defects or problems can be rectified by your builder before your first walkthrough. They have a duty to deliver you a finished property without defects, and we make sure that happens.
12 Month Implied Warranty / Inspection Defect Repair
With only 12 months after a build has been completed to declare any defects, we offer comprehensive services to make sure you don’t get landed with a hefty bill that would instead be covered by your builder.
Invasive + Non-Invasive Moisture Testing
Non – invasive moisture testing can protect your home from water damage, using thermal imaging and drone photography to get the job done. Invasive testing can be carried out to identify areas of concern.
PRE SALE & PRE PURCHASE INSPECTIONS
Before selling a home, it is essential to know its condition. A pre sale house inspection (otherwise known as a Maintenance or Condition Survey) is an inspection and report that is ordered by the home owner or vendor, and its purpose is to reveal any potential problems that exist within the property before it goes to market. It’s important to have this inspection carried out by experts who are thorough and don’t leave anything out – as any undisclosed disrepair or weathertightness issues can lead to future lawsuits being brought against the seller by the buyer. By learning about the repair requirements before selling, you give yourself the opportunity to either fix the problem and protect the value of your home, or obtain quotes for the repair, which can then be disclosed during the selling process.
A pre-purchase inspection is a separate report that can be ordered by the buyer to ascertain the condition of your property before buying it, but it is not the same thing as a pre-sale house inspection. You should never expect the buyer to be responsible for learning the condition of your home. Any substantial issues are your responsibility and, if left undisclosed or unresolved, can lead to legal action. Knowing and disclosing the full extent of your property’s condition safeguards your sale, and yourself, from any unnecessary action or upset.
