Building Inspection Reports

Verbal Building Inspection Report

From $299.00 plus GST

Has the auction been brought forward and you’ve found yourself short on time? We can have an inspector meet you onsite or call you over the phone if you can’t attend. Your inspector will visit the property and give you a concise verbal overview of the property’s condition, including areas of concern and recommendations for any necessary repairwork. The verbal report you receive is a simple conversation based on the thorough and honest opinion of our experienced inspectors, with the assessment including internals, externals, site and moisture content.

Written Building Inspection Report for Residential / Commercial

From $439.00 plus GST

If you prefer to have a checklist to follow then the written building report is for you. You will receive a thorough building inspection report which is detailed and easy to read. Our inspector will assess each area of the property, identifying defects and issues and clearly highlighting with photos, commentary and recommendations to fix areas of concern. We inspect internals, externals, site and provide moisture readings. If we can’t access a certain area, this will be clearly noted with reasoning. For a comprehensive summary on the current state of a property,get in touch with us today. You will also be provided with ongoing customer support with head office as well as your inspector should you need to discuss the findings, or have any queries going forward.

Toxicology Testing

From $199.00 plus GST

Finding out your home is contaminated with illicit substances after you’ve purchased is a costly and stressful mistake. We provide a same day onsite screening test or a laboratory test which is sent away to a professional scientific lab environment for a more thorough analysis so you can get peace of mind. Book us now to complete a toxicology test check before you buy. 

Weathertightness Reporting

From $250.00 plus GST (Add On) 

With so much misinformation regarding weathertightness and plaster homes, take the guesswork out of your purchase by having us complete a Weathertightness Report. We specifically look at the risk areas of the property in relation to the style and construction of the building and rate these in relation to the NZS building standards. Areas of focus include roofing, eaves, windows, cladding, design style, decking and moisture readings. The comprehensive written report you receive will be detailed and easy to read. 

Safe & Sanitary

From $559.00 plus GST

Are you concerned about the safety and construction of unconsented work? Prior to 1st July 1992 there was no building consent process as we know and rely upon today. Our Safe & Sanitary Report is an independent report from a trusted third party verifying the condition of a building and work carried out before 1st July 1992 to give you confidence and rule out any concerns.

Special Reporting

From $559.00 plus GST

Our Special Report is for all building areas that don’t fall into a particular category, such as unusual cracking, fire / flood damage, faulty building works, tenancy / landlord disputes or insurance claims. We provide a clear and concise written report backed up by photos and detailed descriptions of the areas of concern, and recommendations to remedy the situation.

Moisture Testing

For non-invasive moisture testing, we use the Trotec T660 Dielectric (or comparative technology) material moisturemeter which has a material moisture measurement of up to 40mm. We carry out moisture testing on all properties and concentrate mostly around exterior doors and windows, showers and other potential risk areas. All readings taken in the property are entered into the written report provided with our inspection. We also provide you with a measurable table so you can see the range your readings sit within. As always, our customer service team as well as your inspector is available to discuss these findings with you and offer expert advice.

Annual Property Health Check from $299 plus GST

Keep your property Fit and Healthy with an annual "Property Health Check" which includes an annual Healthy Homes Inspection or re inspection, Smoke Alarm check and an annual Property Maintenance Inspection to identify all the maintenance problems with your investment property or owner occupied property. Talk to one of our expert inspectors or one of the team at head office to find out more with one of our annual property health checks.

Pre-Settlement Inspections 

If you are looking to purchase a new property from a developer or construct and house and land package and you need some Quality Assurance then contact us to assist you with a Pre-Settlement Inspection. Just because its a new property doesnt mean it doesnt have its fair share of workmanship issues and defects, so its better to be safe than sorry and arrange a pre-settlement report to have the property in tip top condition before you take ownership.

Insurance Assessment and Repair Work

We have a network of builders across NZ who help insurance companies and customers conduct insurance claim assessments and then carry out the repair work. We have assisted customers and insurance companies with catastrophe response such as serious flooding and storm damage to everyday household insurance claims and eventual repair work.

Healthy Homes from $199 plus GST

Ensure your rental property meets the Healthy Homes compliance standards for heating, insulation, ventilation, moisture ingress, drainage and draught stopping. Talk to one of our expert team members to arrange your same day Healthy Home report.

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 😊

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.
