Selecting The Right Pre-Purchase Report

building inspections report - written-report

Written Building Report

This is the report you need when you are buying or selling. It is extremely comprehensive yet easy to read, great for lenders and insurers.

It will highlight and advise on any issues viewed from a construction experts’ perspective, putting focus on the structural elements of the home. It will provide you with all of the information you need to inform yourself or a potential buyer about the status of the house from a practical point of view.

building inspections report - healthy-homes-report

Healthy Homes Report

The Healthy Homes Standards aim to make a significant change to the quality of New Zealand rental homes and cover improvements to heating, insulation, and ventilation and addressing issues with moisture ingress, drainage and draught stopping.

This report will identify the elements of the dwelling that need immediate repairs to assist with keeping it compliant with the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act 2017.

Additional Reports That You Can 'Add-On'

building inspector - meth-testing-report

Meth Testing Report

Unfortunately, meth testing is one of those things that is a big part of buying and selling and renting a home. Make sure you add on meth testing for your home for peace of mind, and as a document to prove it has been checked for your insurer should any issues arise.

Once samples are taken and sent to the laboratory it takes 2 working days to complete the testing (this excludes courier delivery time). Testing is carried out in accordance to NZS8510.

building inspections report -floor-level-report

Floor Level Report

The Canterbury Earthquakes have taught us that floor level surveys help significantly to prove after an event that issues to do with your foundations are not historic... Make life easier for yourself and tack on having these checked by our qualified LBPs to safeguard your home for any future claim.

Floor level surveys will also help with understanding the current status of the foundations which will be useful for any future developments of the property such as renovations.

Only construction professionals who understand how homes are built truly have the experience and expertise to identify the elements of a house and provide you with the information you need to decide if a house is a good investment – or not.

A Red LBP pre-purchase inspection report will give you what you need. It will be clear, well communicated, well laid out, and focused on the identification of all visible elements of the property, providing insight and expertise into any issues from a construction perspective.

We were recommended to use Brennan at Red LBP. We are so glad we used Brennan’s services. The process was very easy from start to finish.
