New Construction Building Inspection
Is there anything more exciting than walking into your newly constructed home for the first time? Sadly, this excitement can quickly fade if you notice any construction defects or other related issues. Avoid this problem and the hassles that can accompany it by booking a New Construction Inspection. We’ll check everything out in advance, thereby making it much easier to get the home builder to correct any problems before your first full walkthrough.
Home Maintenance Inspection
The steps you take as a homeowner are every bit as important as finding the right house in the first place. Our Home Maintenance Inspection Report service provides a simple way to keep an eye on your home’s most critical systems. Our inspector will take a close look at these systems and components to find any current or potential upcoming issues. Taking immediate action could save you lots of money in the long run.
12-Month Implied Warranty Inspection/Defect Repair
After buying a newly constructed home, you have 12 months to discover and report any applicable defects to your builder. This falls under New Zealand’s 12-month defect repair period and is implied regardless of whether you have a contract. Many issues can be reported such as variations from consented drawings and the failure to achieve acceptable industry quality levels. Our team will inspect your home before the first 12 months are up to help you file any applicable claims.
10-Year Implied Warranty Inspection
One of the many great things about living in New Zealand is the protection afforded to consumers by The Building Act. Whether you have a physical contract or not, your builder has to assume the risk of providing a 10-year implied warranty. These warranties are implied by law, and they cover you for a variety of issues that could occur during the first 10 years. This property inspection service makes it easy to find and document any applicable problems for your court hearing.
