Covid 19 announcement
We hope you and your family have been safe over the lockdown period, this is a message to let you know CheckHome is currently taking bookings to start inspecting under level 3, our number one priority is the health & safety of our team and community.
Our team will be taking these measures:- When an inspection is scheduled our team will check that no one has been sick in the property or is self-isolating.
- When CheckHome sets up an appointment for the inspection we will inform the client-vendor and/or agent and any other occupants – of our team's requirements to safely undertake the inspection. This will likely include the need for the house to be vacated by everyone before the interior inspection takes place and the 2-meter physical distancing requirements.
- When we arrive at the property we will make a note of all people onsite on the day of the inspection. This information will help with the “tracking and tracing” process should it be found that someone on-site had been exposed to the COVID-19 virus.
We will maintain the required physical distancing put in place to stop the spread of the virus – i.e. stay at least 2 meters from any other person.
- Our inspectors will set up all equipment outside of our vehicles, this will be wiped down prior to accessing the property, all disposable PPE equipment will go into a rubbish bag so this can be removed without potentially contaminating your vehicle.
We will sanitize our hands before and after the inspection, our inspectors will be wearing a mask and using gloves.
- Only the inspector is to be present in the dwelling at the time of inspection, the agent or vendor representative will need to be in there car or leave the property.
A pre-purchase building inspection provides a full, in-depth report on the condition of the property for the purchaser. Before you make an offer on a property, a report from our independent and qualified inspectors will ensure you know exactly what you’re buying. Many banks and/ or insurers require an inspection for lending purposes. See what our comprehensive building inspection includes.
A pre-purchase inspection is carried out before you make an offer on a property or once your offer is accepted.
Our pre-purchase building inspection provides a full, in-depth report on the condition of the property for the purchaser. This is often a requirement by the bank and/ or insurance for lending purposes. Our report encompasses NZ standard 4306 2005.
CheckHome’s comprehensive reports will give you a full understanding of the current condition of the property, highlighting the positive and negative aspects and minimising the risk of running into any unpleasant surprises down the track. By commissioning a Pre-purchase report you can then make an informed decision as to whether the property fits within your budget and short/long term goals.
Should an issue be found, we can provide you with a written estimate for repairs.
Our standard turnaround time is 24 hours for a Pre Purchase House inspection report. Due to our app-based software, we’re able to carry out comprehensive, timely inspections that tick all the boxes. We also provide an urgent same-day report . This will incur an extra cost of $99 and you will receive the report the evening the inspection took place. Please let admin know this is required when booking.
We realise unexpected circumstances may require booking adjustments or cancellations but please note that any changes must be made 24hrs prior to the inspection to avoid any fees. If you cancel your appointment less than 24 hours before your inspection is scheduled to take place, you will be subject to a cancellation fee of $195. To avoid a cancellation fee, please provide cancellation notice at least 24 hours prior to your inspection. You can cancel or reschedule an appointment by calling or emailing us.
Your engagement of CheckHome allows for one site visit per inspection. If, for any reason, you request an additional site visit, it will incur a site re-check fee. The amount of the site re-check fee is $195 for the first hour on site and $125 per hour after that.
