Propertyfox Home Inspection FAQs

What is a pre-purchase or pre-sale home inspection?

A home inspection by Propertyfox Ltd will assess and report on the condition of any Christchurch or Canterbury property you want to buy or sell. The building report will examine the condition of the interior, exterior, roof and basement spaces, garage, site and landscaping and report on the condition of each of these items. It will include an easy to read table identifying any potential problem areas. You will also receive a Certificate of Inspection in accordance with New Zealand Standard 4306:2005, Residential Property Inspection when ordering our 3 in 1 report.

Why do I need a property inspection?

A pre-purchase or pre-sale house inspection provides you with reliable information on the condition of any property you want to buy or sell so that you are fully informed.
