Know in advance about any issues so that you can either rectify them or notify the buying party as this could save the sale of your property.


A pre sale inspection also puts the buyer's mind at ease as they know that they have access to the complete picture and are therefore more likely to buy your house without hesitation and delays.

Meth Tests

With meth labs springing up across the country, it pays to make sure that you're not buying an ex meth lab. We offer a meth detection service which can detect the residue from a cook.


Ex-meth labs often have to go through extensive clean ups before they are fit for living in again. Avoid these high costs by not putting yourself in such a situation in the first place.

Asbestos Tests

If you own a home or will be purchasing a property built prior to 1990 with and fibre cement- based product or textured ceiling, the property could potentially contain asbestos. We can inspect and test for asbestos to remove any doubt that you may have. New Zealand's new health and safety guidelines now means that houses that contain asbestos based products are causing homeowners large increases to their renovating costs.


Landlords are also now legally liable for any costs occurred from asbestos removal and disposal. By having these potential harmful products tested you can be ensured that you are not taking any unnecessary risks and you can be confident that you will know exactly what potential disruptions and financial costs you could be in for.
