Pre-Purchase Property Inspection – From $475.00

Do you need a reliable, high-quality property report for your home in New Zealand? Reach out to the experts at CPRNZ today for premium inspection services.

What is a Pre-Purchase Property Report?

When you are in the process of buying a new property you are afforded a very small amount of time to view one of the biggest purchases you will ever make.
We understand how much stress the unknown can put on people in this situation. We have developed a report that eliminates that fear of the unknown by providing full photo, video and written documentation of absolutely everything important at each property.
Each individual room/area has its own section so our clients can see exactly what they are buying.
We are trying to change the way Property Inspections are conducted in New Zealand.
A half ass builders report won’t give you peace of mind. It won’t answer all your questions and if there’s something keeping you awake at night you can’t contact the inspector to put your mind at ease.
CPRNZ Reports will give you peace of mind and if you need to discuss anything at anytime day or night. We offer 24hour 7day a week after report assistance. We actually give a s#!t about making a stressful time as easy as possible for our clients. Its all just part of the service.

What does the process involve?

INTERIOR

In terms of the interior components, we’ll carefully assess the quality of your floors (carpet, floorboards, vinyl), stairs, walls, furnishings, sinks, cabinets, appliances (built-in), smoke detectors and various forms of shelving.

EXTERIOR

The exterior of your home is just as important as the interior of your home. In fact, exterior renovations can be even more costly than internal repairs, mainly because outdoor patios and verandas often don’t receive the same maintenance care as the interior of the house. We’ll perform a detailed inspection of cladding materials, balconies, entryways, walkways, driveways and patio areas.

WARNING SIGNS

During this process, we’ll be on the lookout for warning signs, like leaks in the roof, dripping faucets and other potential moisture problems. Once moisture seeps into your walls, the damage can be rapid and irreparable, so you must point out any areas of concern during the inspection. Even small things that might seem unimportant or innocuous at the time should be addressed, like doors or windows that don’t open or close correctly (which could prove a severe safety hazard).

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

At CPRNZ, we understand your desire for the process to be quick and efficient. Nonetheless, it is vital that the process isn’t rushed, since small signs could be missed or overlooked. This is why our experience is crucial – we can move through different stages at the process quickly while maintaining attentiveness and quality of service.

Depending on the size of your home or commercial property, the process generally takes around 90 minutes. Once the process is completed, our inspector will talk you through any issues your home might have or any vital signs you should be mindful of into the future.
