Not All Building Reports are the Same
A property report covers the current condition of a property. It reports on any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, movement in the walls, safety hazards, lack of building compliance, or faulty wiring to name but a few. It identifies any problems with the property which, if left unchecked, could prove costly to repair.
You should get a building inspection report done before you buy a property so you know in advance of any problems. You may wish to use the information to try and negotiate a lower price for the property, or so you can get specialist advice about any major problems and how they will affect the property over time.
The building inspector should be a qualified building professional and be independent: in no way associated with the seller or the real estate agent. To be confident in the building report, it is vital you organise your building inspection totally independently of anyone else involved in the sale of the property.
All building inspections carried out by Kiwi House Inspections are completely independent, confidential, unless agreed otherwise, and in accordance with the New Zealand residential property inspection standard NZS:4306 2005. Our reports are extremely easy to follow. The hard-to-understand technical information has been removed, and they are written in plain English. The building report has photos, along with an in-depth explanation of each area of the dwelling, ensuring you can see what we are talking about.
You’ll get an affordable property and house inspection, a legible building report and the inspection team will be available to discuss any issues or concerns from their findings.
