Jenny and William are very helpful and responsive. They provide professional insights and services. The building report is well-organized. They categorize the seriousness of the problem so that we can prioritize our attention to these issues. It helps us a lot when we decide to obtain a house. Highly recommended!

I engaged William and Jenny to do a building inspection report for me. I went with the combined verbal and written report option. During the inspection I accompanied William as he gave a running commentary on what he was seeing and his thoughts. This gave perspective to the magnitude of the issues and also handy tips. The written report I received the next evening further clarified my understanding of the issues and allowed me to discuss with others. I also engaged William who is a qualified quantity surveyor to provide estimated range of remediation costs for the issues identified. This helped me quanitfy the magnitude of the issues I would inherit as well as with the negotiations with the vendor. I can't thank William and Jenny enough, really appreciate your work 🙏

100% recommend these folks! We used them on 3 inspections.William was incredibly thorough. Even taking the time to talk us through the big and small issues while attending in person, telling us about ways to fix issues.They went above and beyond...most importantly, they saved us from buying a lemon.If you want the comfort of true expertise with a real human touch, go with these people.You won't regret it (you might if you don't)

I was introduced to Auckland Affordable through a friend, as they came highly recommended. Jenny was super lovely and efficient in providing me with an outline of the different services and costs, and I was able to book my appointment in quickly. William was very thorough, and talked me through everything that he could see as we travelled through the property. The post inspection report was also very thorough. Highly recommend AAA+++

William and Jenny have both exceeded my expectations in every way. I can confidently say all those great reviews of them are no exaggeration. As a first home buyer with little knowledge of the building industry, they were able to help me understand what exactly I was getting into. They gave great advice on how to maintain the house, the issues that are most concerning and how to fix them in the most cost-effective way. They gave me the confidence to go ahead and purchase my first home!

I absolutely recommend William and Jenny for Builder's Inspections. They were flexible with the date, and conducted a thorough inspection, providing a very comprehensive report two days after. William found a number of significant issues which led to us successfully negotiating a lower purchase price.William is generous to share his expertise with weatherproofing. If you attend the inspection he will give you lots of maintenance advice verbally about affordable DIY solutions to many of the issues. Bring a notebook! These two provide so much value - Thank you William and Jenny!

We found William and Jenny through other google reviews and as first home buyers we had no idea of what to look out for when purchasing a home or knew anything about the building industry. Since meeting William, we've used him for all our multiple home inspections and he is undoubtedly the best inspector in Auckland!He gave us fatherly advice, treated us with the utmost care, and we've learned so much throughout this process. William never rushed and spent many hours taking his time to ensure we knew everything about the property we were purchasing.They take a lot of care and passion in all they do and are SO knowledgeable in the industry! We were really happy with everything!We wouldn't recommend anyone else other than William!We finally have purchased our first home, thanks so much William and Jenny!

We’ve done a few building inspections in the past and William and Jenny definitely shone above the rest with their customer care and “after-care” service. What really impressed me was the phone call I had with William after we had the report so he could explain everything in everyday language and actually explain what need to be done and roughly how much it would cost. Furthermore he emailed me recommendations of tradespeople who could do the jobs. I have had building inspection of other houses with other companies and I’ve felt lost and not sure what the scope of repair or cost is going to be and therefore made the decision for buying the house even harder! I definitely did not feel that this was the case for our house that we purchased.I highly recommend William and Jenny!

This was our second time working with William and Jenny after getting a recommendation from a family member who works as a project manager in residential buildings. On both counts, we found William to be extremely professional and thorough. He is super experienced, knowledgeable and takes the time to explain highly technical details in a way that's easy to understand.What makes AA Inspect stand out is that William is also an experienced quantity surveyor and weathertightness specialist. We benefited hugely from his expertise and getting his estimated cost of repairs, which put us in a strong position for negotiating our purchase price. Communication was also a breeze, thanks to lovely Jenny and it was such a pleasure working with these two. Would absolutely recommend!

Just want to say a BIG thank you to William and Jenny for their incredibly thorough due diligence they did when inspecting our home prior to the auction.They came highly recommended and it was evident from the get go that they stood heads and shoulders above others in the same field.I especially appreciated that they were able to deliver given the tight timeframe in the lead up to the auction without compromising the quality of the report.The written report itself done after the inspection went into great depth and proved really helpful iand highlighted certain issues that weren't obvious at first glance at the open home viewings.They came recommended to me and I can happily recommend them to others.House bought with confidence thanks to them.

AA Inspect a Home was recommended by a friend, and it might have been the best recommendation I've ever been given. It was a real pleasure dealing with both William and Jenny. Communication was quick and clear, and they were able to accommodate my inspection very quickly, which was much appreciated. We were encouraged to do the inspection with William, and he explained in incredible detail, the issues and how to fix them during a very long and thorough inspection. I felt that he genuinely cared about us and the house. He armed us with the knowledge and confidence to proceed, as well as a detailed cost estimate for future work, and we are now very happy home owners. Thank you so much, I wish I could leave 6 stars.

William and Jenny are amazing souls with keen eyes for details. They have made our journey to first home much easier. Both of them were professional, knowledgeable and took the time to explain their findings in a way that was easy to understand. I highly recommend their services to anyone in need of a comprehensive pre-purchase inspection. Thanks to William and Jenny, I now feel secure in my choice and appreciate their dedication to customer satisfaction. A definite five-star experience! 👍See photo of me and William moments before the "panther crouch" practice aka subfloor investigation!

William and Jenny were fantastic. They were very thorough and professional in their approach, and extremely quick at scheduling us in, despite short notice. Their follow-up written and verbal reports were highly detailed and very informative. We spoke to William after the initial report to clarify a few details and he was extremely knowledgeable and helpful about everything we asked. He spent extra time to ensure we fully understood the information provided. We highly recommend them to anyone considering a building inspection.

William and Jenny blew us away. Communication was unbelievable from Jenny from the get go, they both booked us in for a comprehensive home inspection really last minute. I called on a Saturday at lunch time, and was having the home inspection with them the very next day in the afternoon; they did everything they could to help us out. William provided us with a very in-depth building inspection and we were blown away with his willingness to go above and beyond. He clearly has extensive knowledge about buildings and homes in NZ.Thanks again, William and Jenny!

I highly recommend Auckland Affordable Inspect a Home. William is very knowledgeable and has the clients best interests at heart. The inspection was very thorough, and a lot of attention to detail. The verbal and written report is a good combination to consider and well worth the investment! Not only does William provide top notch services he has quite the humour also lol. Jenny is also a great team member and has amazing customer service. Would recommend using their services if you’re ever investing into a home.

Jenny and William are amazing to work with. William has high attention to detail, knowledgeable and shares so much during verbal inspections. He gave us a peace of mind telling us exactly what issues need to be fixed and what can be left alone so we can be confident about what we buy. Love his passion and would definitely recommend 👍

I will absolutely recommend William to everyone as he is a professional building inspector.I currently bought a new town house, and I didn't know that the house has so many flaws until I check it with William.He kindly explained me every problem of the house and suggested me solutions which I can deal with my vendor.I am truly touched that he is working for me on my side and helping me with all of his knowledge and effort. Genuinely, I could feel his 40 years experiences during the conversation between him and the construction manager of my house. I will come back to see William every time when I buy another house.Much appreciated with Jenny too as she kindly arranged the schedule for me and explained all the procedures. Best team ever.

We had a fantastic experience with Jenny and William. They arrived even before the appointment to make sure they would have enough time to inspect everything thoroughly. Great communication with Jenny and William was very thorough during the inspection and explained everything very well to us so we could understand. He is very knowledgeable and even gave us some tips which tools we should use to fix certain things.We used them before with the same great experience and would always only use them again for any home inspection.We highly recommend this company!

William and Jenny did a building inspection for a very old property that we were looking at buying in Auckland. They organised it for us with only a few days notice and provided the report with really quick turnaround.William is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions (and there were a lot of questions!), and the report goes into the smallest detail. William has the knowledge and skill to explain everything to those of us who know nothing about construction. They even looked over the roof with a drone and provided pictures!I highly recommend Auckland Affordable Inspect a Home and we will definitely be using them again in future. I would rate 11/10 if I could!

Hello,Disregard the review below from Ashleigh Morton, we are the buyers who had the building inspection provided. William provided an extremely thorough, professional and helpful inspection of the property. The review below is from an unhappy vendor as we decided in the end not to purchase the house due to it asking a lot more than the CV and the condition of the house.He also goes the extra mile with his clients in understanding what to look for when you're a first time buyer and what maintenance would be required to get a property up to scratch.I will be using William again as he provides one of the best building inspections out there and wouldn't think to go anywhere else after the level of service I have received from him.Cheers

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 🙂

Brilliant communication from Jenny and William.They are detailed and considerate when it comes to inspecting home. I'm glad I received all the information I need in order to make an informed choice on the conditional offer. The detailed report offers us the knowledge of knowing all the small and large defeats around and in the home.If you are buying an investment home or first home... they are the people! You won't regret it.
