Free House Inspections In Christchurch.

Recently, the earthquake commission of New Zealand, EQC, announced that anyone who has purchased a repaired house after the quakes could lodge a new claim if they are experiencing issues that haven't been fixed correctly. This further help from EQC required homeowners to register for eligibility. If you're part-way this journey or you'd like to know more, please contact us for a consultation and an earthquake free house inspection in Christchurch. The inspection is free, but if we discover certain damage, there can be subsequant costs involved.

What Is An Earthquake House Inspection?

Our House Inspections are often referred to as post-earthquake building assessments, but a house inspection doesn't always have to be earthquake-related. When onsite, we can give you verbal recommendations for your property repairs and run a few minor house levelling tests to get an indication of your best repair strategy and way forward - This service is 100% free for Christchurch residents, although upon certain findings, there may be charges incurred. We send you a document so you understand the potential findings that may occur and raleated charged. This all occurs, prior to your house inspection.

If you'd like to engage us for a more comprehensive written report, we can provide a scope of works, and a written report, suitable for lodging with either EQC or the insurance companies. This is a paid service negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
