William and Jenny were great to deal with. Great communication. William was exceptionally thorough and took time to explain things to me on site. The written report (54 pages!) was excellent and will be the basis of my maintenance schedule for the coming years. Thanks William, we will be recommending you to all our friends and family 🙂

I can highly recommend William and Jenny at AA Inspect A Home. A highly professional, detail focussed and accessible service was provided over a number of homes before they inspected what would be our first purchase. William is very capable and provides a high level of insight into the technical elements of the inspection reporting so you know exactly what you’re buying. I’d recommend any house purchaser get an inspection done and I’d recommend any first home buyer to use AA Inspect A Home to do it.

Fantastic experience. They did the inspection the same day and I had the report the next morning. William is very knowledgeable and found things that I , as a carpenter myself , didn’t spot. Highly recommended.

It was great to have William and Jenny for our building inspection need! Jenny is very quick to respond to enquiry, provide necessary information and immediately book the appointment even we came at a very short notice. It was really great to have William as the building inspector. He knows every stuff, highly knowledgeable, very detailed and willing to explain/ answer all questions. We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to get building inspection services!

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

Builders Reports

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.

Weathertightness reports

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. 

Building Inspections

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.

Asbestos identification and testing

We offer asbestos testing as an additional indication and testing as an additional service to any existing property. The samples are sent to a laboratory for testing.

THE IMPORTANCE OF METH TESTING

Don’t let past behaviour in a house get you stuck with a property that will be difficult to sell. Your insurance could be compromised if your home is found to have traces of methamphetamine residue, so it’s important to know the kind of house you’re buying - or selling if you have rented it out to other parties. Meth detection in a property can shut down your rental property, and leave health implications behind. We offer vigorous meth testing in Auckland to determine whether there has been any meth use or activity within your property.
