The Need For Independent Methamphetamine Testing

Media release 29/11/2016

To our valued clients.

Who should be conducting methamphetamine contamination testing?

In short, the answer is – an independent party should be undertaking methamphetamine contamination testing.

There has been a lot of discussion this year about how testing should take place but the question of who should conduct methamphetamine contamination testing has taken a back seat.

TVNZ’s Seven Sharp has recently run a piece on the issue of who is conducting the tests and have raised some interesting questions such as –

  • Does the tester have any financial or professional interest in the property aside from the meth testing?
  • Is there is a conflict of interest if they do?
  • Should this person therefore be undertaking the testing?

The full Seven Sharp article is available here or our facebook page here.

Seven sharp asked the Real Estate Agents Authority and the Property Institute and their response surmised that an independent party should be engaged to facilitate testing of properties.

The key reasoning behind this is straightforward. In order for real estate agents and property managers to remain truly impartial and as such protect both themselves and their clients, they must utilise a fully independent third party methamphetamine testing company.
