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.

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.

Building Report Contents

Our building report will give you a summary of our expert opinion of the condition of the property in relation to it’s 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 inspections)

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

Building Report Pricing:

Starting from $400 inc GST for a full, written report

Monolithic Clad Houses Additional $100

Reports completed on Saturday or Sunday may incur an extra $100

(Costs vary dependent on the size and complexity of the house and the number of bathrooms.)
