Are all House Inspectors the same?
When buying or selling a house it is a good policy to make sure you know exactly what condition it is in. To make sure there are no unpleasant surprises, like the couple waking up to termites on their first day, it pays to get a home inspection.
What to look for in an House Inspector?
In New Zealand there are no regulations about qualifications for House Inspections.
The type of inspectors could be:
Building inspector working with the council, who are checking the house while it is built and on completion.
Qualified house inspector,
who did intensive training and tests, i.e. with InterNachi, who checks all aspects of a house
and follows the guidelines of a code book .
A Buyer’s Choice House Inspector like Maxe Janssen
- carries an indemnity Insurance
- is required to do ongoing training
- belongs to an InterNachi Association
- provides a Guarantee
- follows the Guidelines of the Code book
- can show you a Sample Report
- checks for Maintenance Issues
Make sure you get your House inpected by a qualified ‘A Buyer’s Choice’ House Inspector.
