Benefits of Pre-Purchase House Inspections in Auckland

Buying a home is a joyous occasion, but it requires a significant sum of money. Hence, homeowners seek mortgages from banks to cover the purchase while paying monthly instalments for a lengthy period. The worst-case scenario when you acquire property without house reports is discovering that it’s falling apart after a few months. To avoid this situation, explore the benefits of house testing conducted by our detail-oriented team.

  • When you decide on buying a property, you want it to be perfect. Unfortunately, pre-existing homes are never perfect, and there will be areas of concern. A thorough inspection by a professional examines the foundation and walls of the property. Small cracks may be present, which isn’t a big deal and can be repaired. However, substantial cracks are a sign that there’s something wrong with the materials or workmanship, which is dangerous for the occupants.
  • The presence of moisture can be covered up for a showing, but you can trust the hawk team to discover it. Leaky pipes or roofs allow water to enter the home, providing an ideal environment for mould to thrive. Water and mould can cause severe damage to furniture and the health of the residents.
  • The problem of meth labs is continuous, and to protect your investment, it’s best to have a skilled inspector on the job. Methamphetamine presents a severe health risk to the inhabitant of a property and requires a significant clean-up. Meth or P testing is a critical aspect of buying, selling or renting a property that you shouldn’t underestimate.

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Pre-Purchase House Inspections

Getting the property you want to buy inspected assists in avoiding a troublesome home. Follow these tips to get the most out of the inspection.

  • You should always source your own, independent inspector. While the realtor may have recommendations for you, it’s in your best interest to do some research and find your own inspector. As a result, the inspector is free to inform you of any discrepancies around the property.
  • Once you’ve hired an inspector, you must take full advantage of their knowledge and experience. Ask as many questions as possible to avoid problems after purchasing the property. Additionally, you should be present when your inspector arrives to inform them of any issues you may have noticed.
  • There are some areas around a home that you may be uncomfortable to enter, such as the attic or basement and crawl spaces. You can request your inspector to take pictures of potential problems to understand the issues fully. Infrared and thermal cameras allow inspectors to see beyond walls and floors.

It’s advisable that you do an inspection as well by testing the plumbing through opening the taps. Check the walls and ceilings for remnants of water and try out the light switches along with the electrical power points. As a result, you’ll be aware of the issues on face value before your inspector dives deeper.
