Pre-Purchase Home Building Inspections

A professional home building inspection from A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections will help you gain awareness and valuable information about a home before purchase giving you and your family peace of mind. The building inspection will help determine whether or not this home meets all expectations, and it will lessen the risk of having to deal with unexpected defects in the home later on. It will identify major issues such as mould, incorrect wiring, insects, moisture, and rot. All inspections are fully comprehensive and carried out to NZ Standard 4306 with a certificate of inspection issued and a full written report including photographs detailing any issues found. Our inspectors are internationally qualified and fully insured and are underwritten by Lloyds of London with professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

Pre-Sale Home Building Inspections

Home building inspections are not just for home buyers. Home sellers also gain peace of mind by investing in a thorough home inspection prior to putting a house up for sale. The last minute discovery of problems by a prospective buyer can lead to time delays, added expenses and can even stop a sale altogether. Your best prevention measure as a home seller is to have an inspection done prior to listing your home.

This will help raise your awareness of existing issues and also reduces your liability with full disclosure and helps to facilitate a faster sale for more money by offering purchasers with an unbiased third party opinion. It will also protect you from over inflated buyer estimates for any repair work needed and therefore help to eliminate any sales from falling through.

All inspections are fully comprehensive and carried out to NZ Standard 4306 with a certificate of inspection issued and a comprehensive written report including photographs detailing any issues found. Our inspectors are internationally qualified and fully insured and are underwritten by Lloyds of London with professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

This review is not only a reflection of my opinion but also the opinion and feedback from a number of different parties including a number of real estate agents, other builders/building inspectors and Geo thermal inspectors. Duane is an absolute expert in his field. He is very diligent with an eye for detail. His work ethic is beyond satisfactory going the extra mile to provide precise details and evidence so that any other builder or contractor can read all key areas for concern without even visiting the property. I believe Duane saved us from years full of unsuspected surprises and struggle. For this we have much to thank him for. I wouldn’t go elsewhere. A master of his trade with exceptional care in taking every bit of time necessary. Although I know not standard we were fortunate enough to have him explain the details of the house to my partner while on site.
