Pre-Purchase / Pre-Sale Inspection
Top of the South House Inspections offer a comprehensive visual non invasive Pre Purchase / Pre Sale inspection report on residential and rental properties. The inspection assesses the general condition of the property at the time of inspection. Significant defects will be noted in the report with photos where required.
The inspection of the property would normally take 1 - 3 hours (depending on the size of the property). The information is then compiled into a report which is easy to understand, with the report normally being forwarded within 24 hours of the inspection being carried out. Inspections are based on NZS4306:2005.
There are areas of all houses where the home purchaser would benefit from the knowledge of a professional to assess the structural, weather tightness and integrity of the building. It is far better before you purchase a property, to find out if there are any areas of the building that require immediate attention, maintenance work or are contaminated with Meth (P).
If areas are detected during the inspection that require work to be undertaken this would give the purchaser the opportunity to discuss a price reduction, or the seller the opportunity to correct the work prior to listing the property. This can also have the beneficial effect of speeding up the selling process once the work is complete.
Before any inspection is carried out, you will be required to sign a contract, this will list the inspections you require to be carried out and agreed costs.
