Pre-Purchase Builders Report

What Is a Pre-Purchase Building Report?
Builders reports – also known as residential property inspection reports – provide buyers and sellers with necessary information about a house. The property in question will be inspected by a qualified and experienced builder with a wealth of knowledge about the building and construction of houses. If you are interested in buying a house – or trying to sell your own – our builders reports will tell you everything you need to know.  

How We Test
We use non-invasive moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras when needed to inspect the property fully so you can feel confident in our builders report.
Straight Up Inspections provides professional builders reports (pre-purchase or pre-sale inspections) in Tauranga, Rotorua and the wider Bay of Plenty. Our building reports are easy to understand and comprehensive, and as an independent company not affiliated with any real estate, you can trust that our findings are complete and unbiased.

Building Report Contents
Our building report will give you a summary of our expert opinion of the condition of the property in relation to its age including:

  • Significant faults and defects
  • Items in the property (for example: insulation, heating systems, power points)
  • Future inspections that may be needed (including plumbing, engineering, drainage)

You will receive a certificate confirming the property has been inspected in compliance with NZS4306:2005.

Same Day Builders Report
Receive your builders report via email on the very same day that our builders inspect your house. A hard copy will be sent to you in the mail.

Contact Straight Up Inspections at 021 204 2630 and schedule one of our inspectors to come inspect your home in Tauranga, Rotorua, Whakatane, the wider Bay of Plenty and in areas of the Waikato.  Alternatively fill in our form for a free quote.

Beware - not all building surveys are the same

At Straight Up Inspections we provide a thorough detailed builders report leaving you in no doubt as to the condition of the building. We do NOT use a tick and cross system. The issues we find are photographed and accompanied by a full sentence or paragraph outlining our findings.
We have a clear summary where all significant issues found on the interior and exterior of the building are identified, plus every room in the building/house has its own survey.
