Pre-Sales Inspection


Pre-Sale Building Inspections Auckland

EP Group Ltd will carry out a thorough inspection of your property and provide you with a fair and honest comprehensive written report, complete with photographs.

Our inspection report can present your home ideally by identifying any areas of concern, we will offer recommendations which can be attended to before they become an issue and delay the selling process. This will help you to obtain the home’s maximum price.


Written Pre-Sale Inspection Report

Our completed report will be emailed to you directly and we also include a hardcopy which is a nicely bound document which can be presented during open homes should you wish to share with your potential purchasers.

The report is fully comprehensive and ‘to the point’, in plain, easy to understand terms. It is not a tick box report, it is relevant to the home being inspected.

Our reports are in sections which cover:

  • Construction
  • Non invasive moisture testing (using a capacitance metre)
  • Foundations
  • Roof and Ceiling space
  • Insulation
  • Exterior Cladding
  • Joinery
  • Subfloor / Foundations
  • Surroundings (driveways/decks/garage etc)
