Pre-Purchase building inspection In the Bay of plenty

You are not just buying the property in its current state, you are also taking ownership of all the overdue and future maintenance that comes with it. 

With our findings, you will be able to obtain quotes from relevant sub-trades to determine the true cost of the property you are interested in. This is a very critical part of the due diligence process and is often overlooked due to poor advice, misinformation or plainly just being pressured to hurry things along! We believe our services have an equal value to other services in the circle of due diligence.

You pay a solicitor and a valuer to check for things that could hinder your investment, so what effects could unplanned repairs and maintenance have on your finances, your relationships, and your mental well-being? 

All findings are documented with clear images and sentences that are easy to understand and cannot be misconstrued.

Pre-Sale Building Inspection in the Bay of plenty

The point of a Pre-Sale inspection is to inform you of any overdue maintenance and defects that could frighten away any potential buyers. 

With the knowledge of your report, you will be able to fix any issues prior to listing your property and get top dollar, or sell it as it is! Whatever you decide to do, you can do it with confidence knowing there won’t be any nasty surprises waiting to derail your transaction!

This Pre-Sale Building Inspection is conducted exactly the same as a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection.


Maintenance Inspection

You get your teeth checked regularly to avoid toothache, you get your vehicle serviced consistently to avoid breakdowns and more expensive complications, so it makes sense to do the same to protect probably the most valuable thing you own!

Our tailored retention plans save you time and money by scheduling regular annual assessments. 

We will ensure that your property is thoroughly checked for current and emerging defects targeting potential issues for remediation and identifying matters needing attention immediately. 

By responding to our regular checks, you can diminish the impact of bigger problems and unforeseen costs. 11th hour call-outs with the consequent higher fees, and for landlords, loss of income yields as a result of discounted rentals granted to inconvenienced tenants.  An impartial, transparent and comprehensive report with recommendations for next steps will be provided with all plans. We have no vested interest, always recommending you to choose your own trusted professionals. We thoroughly check your property then summarize and prioritize what your next steps need to be, using the NZS4306 as a benchmark.
