What is a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection?


A Pre-Purchase Building Inspection is a building report specifically designed to assess the current state of the home that you may be considering purchasing. The purpose of the building report is to highlight any concerns or areas of potential concern that you should be aware of. The building report will act as a standalone reference for you, when considering your purchase.

Here at ATS, we are focused on one Mission – KEEPING KIWI HOMES SAFE. It is with this Mission in mind, that we approach each and every building inspection that we undertake. And it is for this reason that our reporting structure, approach and methodologies are anchored in NZS4306:2005 which is the New Zealand Standard governing Residential Property Inspections.

Our staff are fully trained and qualified to undertake building inspections to this standard and our reporting structures are aimed to be simple and easy to read. In fact we consistently receive exceptional feedback from our clients about the structure of our reports and their ease of use.

All the work that we conduct is protected by our multi-million dollar insurance policies in order to ensure that our clients are doubly protected. Our fast and friendly team is trained to ensure that every customer that we are lucky enough to serve has a customer experience that leaves them in awe of the way that we operate. There’s a reason that ATS is the highest rated and most reviewed property testing company in the country!

Do you need a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection?


This is a fair question and one that we are asked all the time. The short answer is yes you do. While there is no legislation around this requirement, the risk associated with not conducting a pre-purchase building inspection prior to purchasing the property puts you at incredible risk. Think about it this way, you wouldn’t buy a car without taking it for a test drive and giving it the once over, so why would you purchase your largest asset without getting a professional to inspect the property first?

Having a building inspection conducted by a professional and reputable company will allow you to alleviate a huge amount of risk associated with the purchase. The key is that you know exactly what you will be buying.

  • You will have a really clear picture of the current state of the property.
  • You will have a really clear understanding of any potential issues with the building.
  • You will have a clear picture of the maintenance requirements that you may face over the next five years.

All of this means that you can rest easy in the knowledge that the home that you are purchasing doesn’t have any nasty surprises lurking in the shadows. ATS is committed to Keeping Kiwi Homes Safe and delivering a truly unparallelled customer experience – it’s what we do.

It doesn’t cost anymore to use the best – so give us a call today on 0800 005 321 and experience the ATS difference.
