Pre-Sale
Building Inspection Taupo

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.

 

Pre-Purchase
building inspection In Taupo

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.

We know that trying to make sense of a detailed builders report can be overwhelming especially to those who have little to no knowledge of building terms. That is why we have simplified our wording as much as we can without compromising the quality of the report.
