Don't Just Take Our Word for it...

Luke was such a pleasure to deal with. We had to obtain a pre-purchase inspection and there were some pressures to get the inspection done ASAP. Luke and the team at Inspect House Building went above and beyond to help. They were flexible and very timely. They were able to complete the inspection (report too) in well under 12 hours. Luke was clear in communication and very professional. Both my partner and I cannot thank them enough for their service. Would recommend this company to anyone who requires a building inspection.

Elizabeth Walker

Highly recommend this service. Luke was able to provide a pre auction building inspection at very short notice. He communicated directly with the real estate agent to arrange a time within our requested timeframe and returned a clear written report to us within the same day. We would 100% use this service again and would recommend this service to our friends and family. Thanks for taking someOf the extra stress out of our property hunt 😊

The team at Inspect House NZ are amazing. Super responsive and take the hassle out of organizing a building report especially for a first home buyer!! Very easy to read yet full of detailed information regarding the house and what's advised to happen

Cody McKinnon

Luke’s a pleasure to deal with. Very friendly and efficient. Able to assist in getting inspections done in short notice to a good quality prior to settlement which was coming up soon. The builders also very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend!

Steven Lee

I have used this business for pre-purchase building inspections on two occasions and the team have been friendly and efficient both times. Very prompt communication and completion of the inspections, followed through with thorough reports. I also really appreciate how straight-forward the reports are to interpret. Great service - highly recommend.

Seini Pifeleti

I needed to get a builders report before making an offer on a house so I got in contact with these guys and I was overwhelmed with how helpful and professional they were. Also after explaining that time was a factor for me they managed to do the full inspection and report on the same day, I couldn't have hoped for any better service than that. Even after receiving the report they continued to help me with explaining parts of the report I didn't understand. Will definitely use Inspect House NZ again.
