There are 3 different pre-purchase or pre-sale options available for your property inspection.
We pride ourselves and always use licensed building practioners ( refered to as LBP’s ) to carryout all of our inspections and written reports. After all these are the trades people they know the regulations and the standards a building needs to be constructed too.
Licensed Building Practitioners have vast knowledge of earlier construction methods and regulations. Meaning you will have accurate, comprehensive information about the condition of a property in advance of a purchase or sale.
Our comprehensive and professional office support team works closely with our field inspectors ( LBP’s ) to provide you the best report possible. One of the huge advantages of a building report is that you will have information relating to potential problems a property may have and can now negotiate with the seller, or if selling you can remediate the issues prior to going to the market.
Following the recent earthquakes in the canterbury region there have a many different situations where houses have been purchased & onsold and the truth is it is very difficult to clearly understand what repairs may or may not have been carried out at these properties. The EQC minister recently said the estmate for botched repairs may be at more than $1 billion dollars, so therefore it becomes obvious these botched repairs are spread across a wide area of Canterbury.
A large number of Canterbury houses have simply had substandard foundation repairs already done and these will more than likely fail in the future.
